Honda unveiled the fifth-generation Goldwing at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. One of the most-recognisable monikers in the touring segment, the Goldwing now features a new design language, a slew of technological updates and some serious weight saving measures.

While the previous Goldwing was quite bulbous, the new model gets an aerodynamic and athletic body, complete with edgy LED headlamps.
The new Goldwing might have fewer buttons than before, but the view still isn’t very far from that of an aeroplane cockpit.
At the centre is a 7-inch colour TFT screen, which apart from usual functions, integrates a navigation system and Apple CarPlay.
The Goldwing’s twin-spar frame has been revised to accommodate the new front suspension and reduce weight and improve the riding dynamics.
At the heart of the Goldwing is a 1833cc flat-six engine. The engine has been revised to save weight and improve its efficiency.
While a six-speed gearbox is offered as standard, Honda is also offering a seven-speed dual clutch transmission as an optional extra.
It also features traction control and ABS. The riding modes alter traction control setting, throttle response, gear shift points and suspension settings.
The Goldwing rides on a new double wishbone front suspension setup in place of telescopic forks, and a Showa rear monoshock.
The Goldwing is being offered in two trims – standard and Goldwing Tour. The latter gets a 50-litre luggage top case.
