Zero's latest electric dual sport motorcycle makes its case for space in the garage.
Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
No motorcycle has changed the concept of touring like the Honda Gold Wing. A horizontally opposed engine offering power, performance and perfect smoothness. Shaft final drive. A chassis designed for daylong comfort. And over the last four decades, the Gold Wing has just gotten better and better, and touring riders have had it better and better toofull-coverage bodywork, bigger engines, more cylinders, better chassis, more power, integrated luggage.
Take a week offor even just a weekend. Pack up the Gold Wings saddlebags. Settle in behind that fullcoverage windshield and bodywork. And point it down the road to someplace youve never been.
Or plan your lifetime trip, and program it in to the Gold Wings available navi system. You see, the Gold Wing doesnt dictate how or where you rideit lets you live the dream, and lets you take a lucky passenger along too.Features May Include:
- 1832cc Liquid-Cooled, Fuel-Injected Engine
The Gold Wings fuel-injected, horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine is exceptionally smooth and incredibly powerful. The horizontally opposed flat six-cylinder design offers a lower center of gravity for an improved ride and a lighter handling feel.
- Pro-Arm Rear Swingarm
The Gold Wings MotoGP-inspired single-sided cast-aluminum swingarm is super-rigid and lightweight with reduced unsprung weight, delivering sharper, sportier handling. Its unique Pro-Arm design mates up with Hondas patented Pro-Link rear suspension, featuring electronically adjustable hydraulic preload settings for various riding and load conditions.
- Improved Ride Quality
Suspension settings revised through repeated testing and your feedback are a part of the reason your Gold Wing offers handling that can put many a sportbike to shame. Gold Wings have always offered the best overall handling of any touring machine, but these settings really improve things when you decide to dial it up a notch.
- Adjustable Windscreen
Our sturdy, ratcheting windscreen adjustment system provides six settings over nearly four inches of travel.
- XM Satellite Radio/Weather/Traffic
Want to listen to the radio you want, no matter where you ride? With our XM-equipped models you get a free 90-day trial subscription included with your XM-equipped Gold Wing. This was the first integrated implementation of satellite radio on a motorcycle, and still offers the most features, including traffic (XM NavTraffic) and weather (XM NavWeather) in addition to regular XM programs. (Separate subscription required after 90-day trial.)
- Lockable Glovebox
Non-airbag models also get a center-mounted lockable glove box for added convenience, boosting the cockpit area storage capacity to 2.8 liters.
- Heated Grips/Seat
Heated grips, a heated riders seat and a heated passenger seat/backrest, all with individual rider and passenger controls. Theres even a foot-warming system for cold mornings!
The airbag-equipped Gold Wing boasts the industrys first (and only) production motorcycle airbag system. The motorcycles fork incorporates two sensors to detect a frontal impact. Perhaps someday all motorcycles may offer this feature, but right now only a Gold Wing gives you this choice.
