The Honda GL1800 Goldwing celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2015 and is well established as one of the most rewarding and luxurious touring bikes in the world. The latest version takes the model to a new level of quality by delivering more power and heightened comfort over long distances.
Honda has engineered the Goldwing to support you and a passenger, no matter how far you plan on travelling. As the rider, you benefit from an upright seating position that gives a clear view of the road ahead. A large windscreen sits just below your eye line to block wind and reduce distractions. Meanwhile the passenger relaxes on a plush couch-like seat with a high back.
The indicators mounted to each wing mirror make sure other road users are aware that you intend to turn. They are joined at the front by powerful headlamps for optimum visibility during darkness. As well as being practical, the body is stylish too and a choice of a number of paint finishes gives the motorcycle its own personality that you can match to your own.
The Goldwing is a leader in its class as its features prove. The model boasts an integrated satellite navigation system that is easy to operate as you are on the move. A premium audio system entertains rider and passenger during long journeys. You can also track your progress and bike output through the integrated multi-function information centre.
When planning an adventure, there is no need to pack light as generous storage boxes at the rear and side carry plenty of essential items.
Out on the road the GL1800 Goldwing feels solid and confident thanks to its 1,832cc six-cylinder engine. Power is transferred to the road through a five-speed maintenance-free gearbox and although the model may look big, it is still lightweight and agile. The aluminum frame saves weight and is rigid to enhance the model’s nimbleness. Safety is another feature of the Goldwing’s performance and it leads the class in this area.
An Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) slows the model quickly from a high speed without causing a loss of control.
The GL1800 Goldwing gets the better of its rivals in many ways and should be seriously considered for riders who want to upgrade to a new touring motorbike. Speak to an expert adviser at your local OMASCO showroom today to learn more about the motorcycle.
