Optional Accessories Pictured This GoldWing Is Red Trimmed In Black A 1 Of A Kink Color Not From Honda

Plan To Go Everywhere There’s big news when it comes to the new 2014 Honda Gold Wing®: we’ve taken the world’s best touring motorcycle and made it even better. The new bodywork is the first thing you’ll notice, complementing the best engine and chassis package the touring world has ever seen. Look a little further and you’ll discover great new improvements to the audio system, the available navigation system and the Gold Wing’s comfort, too. There’s new functionality as well, like integrated iPod® connectivity and the ability to upload trips to the Navi system from your home computer. If you thought the Gold Wing was the world’s ultimate touring motorcycle, you were right. And if you think the new Gold Wing is even better, you’re right again.

Price Does not reflect additional Accessory's

1832cc Liquid-cooled, Fuel-injected Engine

  • The Gold Wing’s fuel-injected, horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine is exceptionally smooth and incredibly powerful. This time-tested powerplant delivers plenty of useable power, using regular unleaded fuel. And to eliminate crankshaft-induced torque reaction at the chassis, the gearbox spins opposite the crank’s rotation—an elegant solution, and a typical Gold Wing engineering touch.

Adjustable Windscreen

  • Our sturdy, ratcheting windscreen adjustment system provides six settings over nearly 4" of travel.

Audio System With Surround Sound

  • Featuring a surround-sound system that’s tuned exclusively for the Gold Wing. When using the speakers (SRS CS Auto*), the audio image is enhanced along with deep low tones, producing a powerful surround sound. When using the headsets (SRS Headphone**), you’ll hear a three-dimensional sound field brimming with realistic sound. (SRS CS Auto* and SRS Headphone** are trademarks of SRS Labs, Inc.)†

Clear-Coated Wheels

  • Our wheels are clear-coated from the factory for an improved appearance and easier cleaning.

Emissions

  • Meets current California Air Resources Board (CARB) and EPA standards.

Enhanced Storage Capacity

  • When we redesigned the new Gold Wing’s bodywork, we took the opportunity to increase the storage capacity in the saddlebags by seven liters, upping total capacity to over 150 liters including trunk and fairing pockets.

Heated Grips/Seat

  • The Gold Wing Features heated grips, a heated rider’s seat and a heated passenger seat/backrest, all with individual rider and passenger controls. There’s even a foot-warming system for cold mornings!

iPod® Connectivity

  • Now you can connect a compatible Apple® iPod® player or other USB mass storage devices, such as flash drives that contain MP3, WMA6 or AAC music files, and control them through the Gold Wing's audio controls. The connector is located in the lockable trunk, where devices can be conveniently carried and discreetly stored.

Lockable Glovebox

  • Non-airbag models also get a center-mounted lockable glovebox for added convenience, boosting the cockpit area storage capacity to 2.8 liters.

Modern Styling

  • The Gold Wing’s design aims for a more integrated appearance, with a sporting edge and visual flow line linking the front to the rear, and a new, integrated taillight and saddlebag treatment. Other touches include redesigned front fascia and air intake, blacked-out headlight garnish and new instrument panel fonts and design.

Pro-Arm Rear Swingarm

  • The Gold Wing’s MotoGP-inspired single-sided cast-aluminum swingarm is super rigid and lightweight, with reduced unsprung weight, delivering sharper, sportier handling. Its unique Pro-Arm design mates up with Honda’s patented Pro-Link rear suspension, featuring electronically adjustable hydraulic preload settings for various riding and load conditions.

Ride Quality

  • Suspension settings are a part of the reason your Gold Wing offers handling that can put many a sportbike to shame. Gold Wings have always offered the best overall handling of any touring machine, but these settings really improve things when you decide to dial it up a notch.

Seat Cover And Urethane Seat Material

  • The best seat in the house just got better. Both the rider and passenger will feel the difference that our new urethane seat material makes. The waterproof cover also features a new sportier, custom-perforated look too. A day in the saddle never felt so good!

Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

  • Checking tire pressure can be a hassle—except when you’re riding a Gold Wing with our Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). A pair of monitors keeps track of both front and rear tire pressures, and the dashboard readout is updated once per minute. They’ll send you an alert if either tire is significantly underinflated.
