Standard on all Gold Wing® models.
Powerful, fuel-injected 1832cc six-cylinder engine produces smooth, effortless power118 bhp and 125 lb./ft. of torquewhile surpassing the California Air Resources Board (CARB) 2008 emissions standards.
Low, forward engine placement and solid engine-mounting produce excellent road handling characteristics and impressive low-speed maneuverability.
High-pressure-formed, sintered-iron Nickalloy crankshaft bearing caps provide quiet operation throughout the engine’s operating-temperature range.
Parallel two-valve cylinder-head design utilizes direct shim-under-bucket valve actuation and requires no 600-mile service; the first valve clearance inspection is at 32,000 miles.
Silent-type camshaft chains with automatic adjusters provide reliable, maintenance-free operation.
Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) (see Technology Section)
Two 40mm-diameter throttle bodies deliver air to six specially designed Keihin 50-psi high-pressure programmed fuel injectors (PGM-FI). Fuel is delivered through four nozzle holes in each injector, producing an atomized fuel mixture that is highly combustible for optimum efficiency and power.
The ECU provides two digital 3-D fuel-injection maps for each cylinder and one digital 3-D ignition map for each cylinder, creating ideal fuel mixture and spark advance settings for superb rideability. Unique knock-control sensors monitor ignition advance to improve performance throughout the entire rpm range.
ECU closed-loop emissions system utilizes two oxygen sensors to constantly deliver a precise air/fuel mixture, while two exhaust catalyzers further reduce emissions of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides.
Rotary Air Control Valve (RACV) maintains precise idle control under widely varying engine loads and operating temperatures.
Compact water pump is mounted behind the engine and is driven directly by the crankshaft, contributing to quicker engine warm-up.
Engine cooling system features a series-flow coolant pattern that offers cold-start rideability and provides rapid engine warm-up.
Two side-mounted radiators enhance cooling efficiency and use low-air-pressure areas created by side cowls to draw cooling air through the radiators and beyond the rider at highway speeds.
Sturdy eight-plate clutch with maintenance-free hydraulic-assist.
Efficient stainless-steel six-into-two exhaust system produces a pleasing, aggressive sound.
Powerful 1300-watt alternator uses a fluid damper system to minimize alternator noise.
Precise-shifting five-speed transmission includes Overdrive Fifth.
Twin-Spar Aluminum Frame (see Technology Section)
Inherently smooth flat-six-cylinder Gold Wing engine also serves as a tuned stressed frame member. The solid engine-mounting system utilizes specially designed hangers and carefully matched mounting bolts to provide both excellent road feel and minimal engine vibration.
Unique Pro-Arm® Rear Suspension (see Technology Section)
Dual full-floating 296mm front discs with Linked Braking System™ (LBS™) three-piston calipers and a single ventilated 316mm rear disc with one LBS three-piston caliper
