The 2018 Honda Gold Wing made its global debut at the Tokyo Motor Show earlier this year, and now Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) has announced bookings open for the company's flagship tourer. The 2018 Honda Gold Wing is priced at Rs 26.85 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and is a completely new motorcycle packing in improved technology, performance and luxury over its predecessor. Honda's chariot on wheels also comes with the third generation Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), apart from the completely new chassis, and design.
The Honda Gold Wing has been around for over four decades now and the motorcycle has been nothing less than a touring icon. With the 2018 edition, Honda has further introduced added refinement on its offering while packing in more power from its six-cylinder engine. Visually, the tourer looks sharper, gets a small front fairing and an electrically adjustable windscreen. You continue to sit like a king on the Gold Wing with enough support for the pillion as well. The massive panniers and top box can offer up to 110 litres of stowage and accommodate most of the luggage, while the bike is now tech friendly with a host of connectivity options.
