Honda has launched the all new 2021 Goldwing tourer. 

Honda Goldwing

The Honda GoldWing, since its introduction as a naked 1000cc machine in 1975, has always represented the ultimate in two-wheeled travel. Its status as a flagbearer for new technology is well-founded, with cutting edge features ranging from 7-inch TFT screen, gyrocompass navigation, Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, electric screen, Smart Key operation, 4 riding modes and Hill Start Assist. A new contemporary paint option also arrives for 2021.

In 2020, improvements to suspension and slow speed manoeuvrability further complemented the evocative, flat six-cylinder engine beating at the heart of Honda’s premium tourer. For 2021, the Gold Wing gains an audio upgrade and head-turning new paint option.

For 2021 the Gold Wing’s 1,833cc engine was completely redrawn. Still as a horizontally-opposed flat six, but with four valves per cylinder rather than two, much more compact in size and 6.2kg lighter. The flat six produces 93kW @ 5,500rpm and peak torque of 170Nm @ 4,500rpm.

The manual transmission is 6-speed, while DCT features 7 speeds, with clutch feel, shift speed and rpm range of up/downshifts tailored specifically to each riding mode. The addition of Throttle By Wire (TBW) control brought with it 4 rider modes: TOUR, SPORT, ECON and RAIN; the operation of the Dual Combined Brake System (D-CBS) alters depending on the mode selected. Hill Start Assist (HSA) and (on the DCT option) Idling Stop offer ease of use and improved fuel efficiency.

The Gold Wing’s die-cast, aluminium twin-beam frame is designed to package the engine in a tight space; its structural thickness is optimised in each area to deliver a smooth and stable ride, from walking speed upwards, whether on tight city streets or out on the open road. The Honda Goldwing features a Pro-Arm swingarm, which attaches to the frame on its left side. The right side serves as a maintenance access.

2021 Gold Wing features Dual Combined Brake System (D-CBS) for optimal distribution of braking power to the front and rear wheels. Dual 320mm front discs are gripped by 6-piston calipers, the rear 316mm disc by a 3-piston caliper.
