Honda’s luxurious Gold Wing ‘Tour’ – a flagship completely reborn in 2018 – with radical weight reduction, double wishbone front suspension, brand-new, flat six-cylinder engine and 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission option, glides into 2021 featuring more luggage capacity, a more relaxed pillion position, new seat material and upgraded audio quality. The comprehensive spec sheet includes 7-inch TFT screen, gyrocompass navigation, Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, electric screen, Smart Key operation, 4 riding modes, HSTC and Hill Start Assist – underlining its status as a flagbearer for new technology
The Goldwing presents a unique silhouette and counterpoints comfort with the dynamic abilities of chassis and engine, adding the traditional Gold Wing premium level of fit, finish and materials. The new ‘face’ is daringly forward-slanting; combined with the compact fairing proportions, it presents an energetic frontal signature. The key line of the body, stretching front to back, highlights the differing upper and lower bodywork functions while clearly showcasing the reduced overall size of the machine. A central element is the fairing, with its sharp and solid flat surfaces, and its nuanced aerodynamic detailing. It adds a tension that hints at the performance on offer.
