Honda opens bookings for Gold Wing 2018

Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India is taking bookings for the new Honda Gold Wing 2018.

Pushing the limits of technological innovations for more than four decades now, the Gold Wing is Honda's flagship touring icon. While staying true to its unmatched legacy of refinement, technology and luxury, Honda's 2018 Gold Wing is an all-new motorcycle from the wheels up.

The 2018 Gold Wing gets radical improvements in every category engineering, handling, technology, comfort and performance. It is lighter, more powerful, more nimble and more engaging. The all-new Gold Wing features new technologies including a a newly-developed horizontally-opposed 6-cylinder engine, 7-speed DCT and Honda's original double wishbone front suspension.

After gaining huge popularity with its introduction in the Africa Twin, Honda brings the DCT convenience in the Gold Wing. The third generation DCT (Dual-Clutch Transmission) is the best DCT that Honda has ever developed, and the first with seven speeds. Even better, this DCT offers a special low-speed walking mode in addition to reverse. It's a huge help when maneuvering into or out of parking spaces with a passenger on the back.

The new Gold Wing's die-cast aluminium twin beam frame is stiffer and lighter by 2 kg, promising enriched handling and a smoother ride. A first for Honda globally is the Gold Wing's new double wishbone front suspension which reduces friction in comparison to traditional telescopic setup. The tourer is now easier to maneuver and feels noticeably nimbler. Rear spring gets four settings of preload relative to load which can be checked on the swanky new 7-inch TFT screen.

The 2018 Gold Wing is powered by a completely reworked 1,833 cc engine. Still as a horizontally-opposed flat six, but now with four valves per cylinder instead of two. Peak power of 125bhp arrives @ 5,500rpm, with peak torque of 170Nm delivered @ 4,500rpm.
