The Goldwing is Honda’s flagship touring motorcycle which has been pushing the limits of technological innovations for more than 4 decades now. Staying true to its unmatched legacy of refinement, technology and luxury, Honda’s 2018 Goldwing is an all-new motorcycle from the wheels up.
The new Honda Goldwing 2018 gets radical improvements in every category – engineering, handling, technology, comfort and performance. The touring motorcycle is lighter, more powerful, more nimble and more engaging. It features new technologies including a newly-developed horizontally-opposed 6-cylinder engine, 7-speed DCT and Honda’s original double wishbone front suspension.
“The 2018 Goldwing was first showcased at the Tokyo Motor Show in November’17 and delighting our customers in India, Honda is today starting the bookings for this legend. The new generation Goldwing gets a 7-speed DCT, revolutionary suspension setup, Apple CarPlay, HSTC and a brand new engine, making it a true rider’s motorcycle. The best ever Goldwing with all these new features is a complete generation leap and yet comes with an unmatched price,” said Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President – Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd.
The 2018 Honda Goldwing is powered by a horizontally-opposed flat six 1833cc engine with four valves per cylinder. It produces a peak power of 125 bhp at 5500rpm and peak torque of 170 Nm at 4500 rpm. It also gets new Throttle By Wire (TBW) which adds 4 rider modes to prevent loss of grip in the rear wheel – Tour, Sport, ECON and Rain. The riding modes manage HSTC (Honda Selectable Torque Control) and suspension damping for better stability and control.
The new Goldwing is also equipped with ABS and Dual-Combined Braking System (D-CBS) as standard. It also comes with brake force Idling Stop and Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) for an ultra-quiet start-up. Additionally, inclusion of a new Hill Start Assist adds ease of use.
Honda also brings the third generation DCT (Dual-Clutch Transmission) system to the new Goldwing which was introduced with hugely popular the Honda Africa Twin. This DCT system offers a special low-speed “Walking” mode in addition to reverse. It’s a huge help when maneuvering into or out of parking spaces with a passenger on the back.
The new Honda Goldwing’s die-cast aluminium twin beam frame is stiffer and lighter by 2kg and provides enriched handling and a smoother ride. Also first for Honda globally is the Goldwing’s new double wishbone front suspension. It reduces friction in comparison to traditional telescopic setup. The touring motorcycle is now easier to manoeuvre and also feels noticeably nimbler. Rear spring gets 4 settings of preload relative to load which can be checked on the swanky new 7 inch TFT screen.
Some of the new features of the 2018 Honda Goldwing include Cruise control via Throttle By Wire (TBW), Electric windscreen adjustable for angle and height, Apple CarPlay Integration which allows iPhone users to connect their smartphones with the motorcycle, Smart key control, 7-inch TFT colour display, Full LED lighting and auto-cancelling indicators
