HONDA GL1800 GOLD WING TOURING REDEFINED
The ultimate tourer.
Now, with an all-new shape – slimmer and lighter – the world’s most famous two-wheeled cruiser enters a new era.
A beautifully finished, sleek machine, that’s more than just a motorcycle.
The magnificent Honda GL1800 Gold Wing makes touring easier and more enjoyable than ever. Its 1,833cc six-cylinder engine can be equipped with a six-speed manual transmission or our refined seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), while the Throttle By Wire (TBW) system has four rider modes to choose from – TOUR, SPORT, ECON and RAIN – with FI settings optimised for low-speed control. Whether you choose the stripped-back Gold Wing or fully loaded Gold Wing Tour (with Airbag option), Honda’s flagship motorcycle reigns supreme in levels of comfort and luxury – through the city or out on the open road.

The Gold Wing Tour's passenger grab handles, too, are, larger, for enhanced security and comfort.
A clear view ahead
The electrically-operated, smoothly-adjusting windscreen provides excellent wind protection. The height and angle can be adjusted by simply pushing the button up or down on the left handlebar; it also memorises your favourite positions and will auto-adjust accordingly. The Gold Wing Tour now features piercing dual fog lights as standard.
A smart key feature

Honda’s premium flat six-cylinder engine is like nothing else
With 4 valves per cylinder and Unicam cylinder heads, the sound and feel of the Honda Gold Wing engine is, as ever, uniquely evocative. And its position, forward in the chassis, delivers a balanced and truly connected ride. Quick acceleration from low rpm and a distinctive exhaust note will soon bring a smile to your face as you leave the city limits behind.
A smooth ride
The aluminium die-cast frame uses a double wishbone front suspension system that delivers a plush and progressive feel to handling. An innovative Pro Arm unit combines with Pro-Link, to offer precise control, and for the Gold Wing Tour, new damping settings front and rear provide ultimate comfort for you and your passenger.
Designed with an engine that can be tuned – through different ride modes – for day-to-day city and urban use, there’s no doubt that the open road is where the Gold Wing really comes alive.
STRENGTH AND STABILITY
An innovative chassis that delivers agile handling.
A light, all-aluminium die-cast beam frame provides confidence-inspiring stability with geometry that delivers agile handling. Up front, the double wishbone suspension system is responsible for supple bump absorption and sharp steering accuracy.
The rear suspension is a Pro-Arm type and works with the unique Pro-Link arrangement to provide high-level luxury; rear spring preload is electrically adjustable to suit passenger and luggage, with four different settings. For enhanced rider and pillion comfort, the Gold Wing Tour features revised damping settings front and rear to give a plush, yet extremely controlled ride.
THE POWER OF SIX
The addictive nature of the Gold Wing’s performance.
The horizontally-opposed, 1,833cc six-cylinder engine punches out an arm-tugging 170Nm of torque @ 5,500rpm – it's the heart of the Honda Gold Wing. With 4 valves per cylinder and Unicam heads you get a strong, eager performance – via Throttle By Wire – out on the highway, and newly-refined FI settings give delicate slow-speed throttle response where you need it most, around town.
CHOOSE YOUR RIDE
You can either tame the power deivery of the six-cylinder engine it, or let it off its leash – whenever the mood takes you – with these selectable ride modes.
This is the base setting for comfort and power, giving you a direct response with default suspension damping and brake force distribution.
This mode serves up strong acceleration, with firmer damping and increased rear brake lever pressure.
With Econ selected, you get maximum fuel economy and easy cruising with default damping and brake force to compliment the ride.
Select this to turn everything down to limit the throttle response for total confidence on a wet and slippery road. It works with the default distribution of braking force and much softer suspension damping.
Honda Selectable Torque Control in all 4 riding modes constantly delivers controllable acceleration and dependable traction in slippery conditions. In SPORT mode, it allows maximum acceleration; you can really feel the engine pull – you’ll be hooked from the start.
Third generation, 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission is specifically designed for the Lord of long-distance cruising.
Optimised for silky low-speed response, DCT offers extremely slick and fast gear changes. It also eliminates shift shock and has three modes of operation: MT mode provides you with full control and allows you to change gear manually using the trigger buttons on the handlebar. Automatic D mode is perfect for city and highway rides and delivers much better fuel efficiency. Automatic S mode is sportier and allows the engine to rev higher before shifting up for a more exhilarating ride. It will also shift down sooner for better engine braking.
An intelligent transmission
DCT in D mode works with you and can detect what environment you are riding in; adjusting accordingly between mountain roads and city streets. In addition, the Gold Wing comes with Idling Stop too – engine will stop after 3 seconds, restarting at the touch of the throttle – for improved fuel efficiency. And with Hill Start Assist, there’s no fear of rolling backwards or forwards on an incline – clever.
Start up and power up
We’ve created a unique Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) that works as a starter motor, as well as a generator; saving weight and energy. The Gold Wing can crawl in walking mode forwards and backwards, too, which is ideal for parking.
