The best ever Gold Wing with all these new features is a complete generation leap and yet comes with an unmatched price.”
Pushing the limits of technological innovations for more than 4 decades now, Gold Wing is Honda’s flagship touring icon. While staying true to its unmatched legacy of refinement, technology and luxury, Honda’s 2018 Gold Wing is an all-new motorcycle from the wheels up.
According to him, Honda’s 2018 Gold Wing gets radical improvements in every category ? engineering, handling, technology, comfort and performance. It’s lighter, more powerful, more nimble and more engaging. The all-new Gold Wing features new technologies including a newly-developed horizontally-opposed 6-cylinder engine, 7-speed DCT and Honda’s original double wishbone front suspension.
After gaining huge popularity with its introduction in Africa Twin, Honda brings the DCT convenience in the Gold Wing. The third generation DCT (Dual-Clutch Transmission) is the best DCT Honda has ever developed, and the first with seven speeds. Even better, this DCT offers a special low-speed “Walking” mode in addition to reverse. It’s a huge help when maneuvering into or out of parking spaces with a passenger on the back.

Peak power of 125bhp arrives @ 5,500rpm, with peak torque of 170Nm delivered @ 4,500rpm. The overall effect is groundbreaking: a Gold Wing that’s still a long-distance champion, but one that offers a degree of engaged and sporty performance.
