About Gold Wing GL1800 [2016-2017]

The Honda Gold Wing GL1800 is one of the most popular premium touring motorcycles around and has earned a good reputation world over for its touring capabilities. The Gold Wing GL1800 is in a class of its own when it comes to features and creature comforts and is the most expensive motorcycle in Honda’s line-up in India.

The Gold Wing GL1800 gets a six-speaker 80W SRS surround-sound system with USB connectivity to connect your phones. Creature comforts are the specialty of the Gold Wing, and it comes equipped with a five-position heated grip, electronic cruise-control system, independently adjustable heated seats and a foot-warming system to make those long hauls comfortable.

The Gold Wing GL1800 is based on a lightweight and rigid twin-spar aluminium frame which comes with a single-sided Pro-Arm swingarm. It is powered by a 1,832cc flat-six engine which is good for 116bhp and 167Nm of torque. The liquid-cooled engine is shaft driven and comes mated to a five-speed gearbox.

While the power figures might seem to be on lower side considering the size of the engine, the Gold Wing motorcycles have never been developed with emphasis on performance. The engine has ample mid-range torque to make the motorcycle comfortable on long rides. The Gold Wing GL1800 comes with combined braking system (CBS) and an ABS to provide optimum braking in all conditions.

In India, Honda also sells the Gold Wing in its 40th anniversary special edition avatar. This special edition gets a special ‘40th anniversary’ emblem with a pair of wings on its gigantic fairing, luggage box lid and the key. The logo also comes embossed on the pillion seat. Besides this, Honda also offers the Gold Wing Airbag variant, which demands a higher premium, owing to the presence of the safety feature.

The Gold Wing GL1800 will be available in two-tone candy prominence red/graphite black and a pearl glare white paint schemes. In India, the Gold Wing faces competition from the Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special and the BMW K1600GT.
