Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) had recently launched its much anticipated touring motorcycle – Honda Gold Wing in India. Considered as the world’s best touring motorcycle, the Gold Wing offers the riders a unique luxurious, powerful, balanced and fully featured machine ready for every journey.
The top-end variant gets an integrated airbag system.
The Gold Wing is powered by a six-cylinder 1832cc power plant which is highly efficient and reliable. The enhanced design and dynamic styling of the Gold Wing makes it an aerodynamically refined touring powerhouse. The lightweight and rigid twin-spar aluminium frame and single-sided Pro-Arm swingarm delivers stability neutral and responsive handling.
With the warmth to take the sting out of even the longest winter rides, the five-position heated grips, independently adjustable heated seats and foot-warming system make touring a year-round possibility. Larger panniers on the Gold Wing allow a luggage capacity of over 150 litres.
The 6-speaker 80W SRS surround-sound system offers superb sound presence and quality. Riders can play multiple format music files on the move by connecting an iPod®, iPhone® or USB stick. Honda Gold Wing is fitted with both Honda’s Combined Braking System (CBS) and an Antilock Braking System (ABS) and offers confidence-inspiring braking in all situations and conditions.

The Gold Wing is also fitted with the fully-integrated airbag (available only in Gold Wing- Airbag), which represented an industry-first when introduced in 2006.

The Lightweight electronic cruise-control system is a delight for the rider on those long distance highway rides.
