For many, the Honda Gold Wing is the symbol of a touring motorcycle. Now the Japanese have given their flagship a slight makeover. Among other things, the thick ship was equipped with a premium surround system.
For generations, the Honda Gold Wing has delighted die-hard touring riders all over the world with luxury and comfort. For the 2012 model year, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer has slightly revised its flagship.
The basic concept of the Gold Wing remains the same
Nothing changes in the basic concept of the Honda big ship. The drive train with the 87 kW / 118 hp six-cylinder boxer engine will probably remain completely untouched. Above all, the comfort equipment is being increased. For example, the latest generation of navigation systems will be used, and the Tourer will also have an interface for an iPod or MP3 player. The premium surround audio system is also new. In addition to slight optical retouching, the engineers mainly improved wind and weather protection and increased the luggage volume. In addition, the chassis experienced slight changes.
For the first time, the new will be on display at the International Motorcycle Show in Greenville, USA (February 25-27). In the USA, the revised GL 1800 will be available in May. When and at what price the fat woman will come to Germany is still unclear. (mid)
