Lighter, more responsive, more athletic – the new-generation Gold Wing rides a whole lot better than ever, and we’ve given it sleeker styling to match its energetic character. While the bodywork still offers excellent weather protection, it’s crisper now, exposing a little more of the engine and chassis. You get better performance, better looks, and a better all-around touring experience.
Day or night, you’ll love the Gold Wing’s LED lighting. The LED headlight design helps to light the way brilliantly when it’s dark, while the headlight and LED tail light contribute to the bike’s sleek styling. Plus, angular mirrors feature integrated self-cancelling LED turn signals.
All Gold Wings with DCT transmissions feature forward/reverse Walking Speed modes that allow you to creep forward or reverse under power using the DCT system combined with the Shift Down and Shift Up levers. Walking Speed modes move the motorcycle at approximately 1.8 km/h forward and 1.2 km/h backward. Think how easy it will be to get in and out of tight parking spots with a fully loaded bike, especially if you need to roll back uphill.
The Gold Wing’s innovative double-wishbone front suspension is not only revolutionary, it also improves handling and rider ergonomics. The design changes the path the wheel travels through the suspension stroke, and that allowed Honda engineers move both the engine and the rider/passenger closer to the front wheel. You get more room, and stellar road manners.
Part of riding a bike is enjoying the elements. But nobody likes being cold. That’s why every 2020 Gold Wing comes equipped with heated grips as standard equipment.
Getting going when you’re stopped on an hill can be challenging, but not with the Gold Wing’s standard Hill Start Assist (HSA). This feature momentarily holds (3 seconds) your motorcycle’s position on inclines when the brakes are released and before you apply the throttle, eliminating any roll-back drama. It’s a great convenience, allowing smoother uphill launches and more rider confidence.
Because the 2020 Gold Wing is light, you’d expect it to be fuel efficient. But light weight is just part of what makes this motorcycle a fuel miser. The engine’s intake system, four-valve design, and other technologies help to improve estimated fuel economy by 22 percent compared to the previous generation.* Want to really squeeze the last kilometer out of every drop? Try the “Econ” ride mode setting.
