Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
The ground-breaking new generation chassis is fitted with the most powerful Husqvarna motocross engine ever developed. The 63 horsepower single-overhead-cam 450 cc power plant has been completely redesigned; it is now smaller and lighter and has been completely reconfigured for optimal mass-centralisation within the new chromoly steel frame. The new bodywork elevates the riding experience thanks to accurately developed ergonomics that focus on instilling rider confidence, complete control and reduced fatigue.Features May Include:NEW ENGINE
The new SOHC engine is 23 mm shorter, 23 mm narrower and 9 mm lower than the previous generation. Every internal component was revised and repositioned, lowering weight by an astonishing 1.8 kg for an overall weight of 27.8kg, increasing power to 63 hp and improving torque along the entire rev-range. Mass-centralisation was a key development factor, enabling chassis engineers to position the engine closer to the centre of gravity for greatly improved handling and manoeuvrability. Vibrations are kept to a minimum thanks to a multifunctional counter balance shaft that also drives the water pump and timing chain.NEW GEARBOX
A lighter and more compact 5-speed gearbox is 8 mm narrower and 350 g lighter than the previous generation. The new surface treatment on 1st and 5th gears improves reliability, and combined with a new low-friction coating on the shifting fork and a redesigned shift drum, guarantee smooth and precise shifting. The gear lever features a new tip design that prevents dirt build-up. An advanced gear sensor allows for specific engine maps in each gear.NEW FRAME
With years of experience in designing the most advanced steel frames in offroad, the engineers in Research and Development have designed a completely new chromium molibdenum steel frame that redefines every structural aspect in order to improve handling, ergonomics and packaging. The torsional rigidity and longitudinal stiffness have been completely rethought. The 6mm wider and 2mm lower steel tubes offer 20% more torsional rigidity and 30% less longitudinal stiffness compared to the previous generation frame design. These characteristics, matched to the new engine stays, improve handling precision while at the same time increasing bump-absorption and feeling.NEW CRANKSHAFT
The new crankshaft features 10% more inertia and has been repositioned 9 mm backwards and 7 mm higher. The higher inertia increases traction and rideability while the new position within the engine contributes to mass-centralisation. A plain big end bearing and two force-fitted bearing shells ensure maximum reliability and durability, guaranteeing long service intervals of 100 hours.NEW CNC MACHINED TRIPLE CLAMPS
The black-anodised CNC machined triple clamps feature a new top clamp that integrates a rubber damping system that reduces vibrations, therefore increasing comfort. The triple clamps have been meticulously designed to evenly distribute the clamping force on the fork leg, maximizing contact area for optimal sensitivity and minimum friction. Handlebar position adjustability has been maintained for MY16.MAGURA HYDRAULIC CLUTCH
The FC 450 now features a new Magura hydraulic clutch system. The high quality German-made clutch system guarantees even wear, almost maintenance-free operation and perfect modulation in every condition. This means that play is constantly compensated so that the pressure point and function of the clutch remain identical in cold or hot conditions, as well as over time.
