Gold Wing

Feel the Freedom

Small Luxuries

With an unrivalled reputation for luxury, quality, reliability and comfort, the Honda Gold Wing has long been the definitive top-of-the-line touring motorcycle. Even as the new GL1800 Gold Wing remains Honda’s flagship tourer, it has been completely redesigned from the ground up to be smaller, lighter and much more agile.


The new direction taken by the GL1800 Gold Wing means it is now much more a rider’s motorcycle. For starters, it is significantly lighter, thanks to a 48kg weight reduction. The familiar and endearing flat six-cylinder engine makes a comeback but is now far more compact and features four valves per cylinder instead of two. The large windscreen so characteristic of earlier generation Gold Wings has made way for a smaller, streamlined, and more aerodynamic electric screen.

Model Features

Technology for an intuitive ride

The GL1800 sports many premium tech upgrades: four different rider modes, Combined Brake System (CBS), Hill Start Assist (HSA) for those tricky up-slopes, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and cruise control for the most comfortable ride.

A Feast for the Eyes

The attractive seven-inch full-colour TFT display provides the full gamut of information and infotainment including speed, engine, audio and navigation system data, as well as managing and scrutinising the various electronic rider aids.

Need for Speed

The five-speed manual transmission of the previous GL1800 Gold Wing has been replaced with two transmission options: A six-speed manual or a seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), with a Walking Mode feature for the DCT version.
