Gold Wing® Audio Comfort
No motorcycle has changed the concept of touring like the Honda Gold Wing. A horizontally opposed engine offering power, performance, and perfect smoothness. Shaft final drive. A chassis designed for day-long comfort. And over the last four decades, the Gold Wing has just gotten better and better, and touring riders have had it better and better too—full-coverage bodywork, bigger engines, more cylinders, better chassis, more power, integrated luggage.
So this year it’s time to celebrate with a special 40th Anniversary Edition—our 2015 Gold Wing, a motorcycle that’s come to define what a touring bike can be, and to set the standards for luxury on two wheels.
Take a week off—or even just a weekend. Pack up the Gold Wing’s saddlebags. Settle in behind that full-coverage windshield and bodywork. And point it down the road to someplace you’ve never been.
Or plan your lifetime trip, and program it in to the Gold Wing’s navi system. You see, the Gold Wing doesn’t dictate how or where you ride—it lets you live the dream, and lets you take a lucky passenger along too.
1832cc Liquid-Cooled, Fuel-Injected Engine
The Gold Wing’s fuel-injected, horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine is exceptionally smooth and incredibly powerful. The horizontally opposed “flat” six-cylinder design offers a lower center of gravity for an improved ride and a lighter handling feel.
40th Anniversary Badging
2015 is a special year for the Honda Gold Wing, and we’re celebrating with a special 40?? Anniversary badge, located Front face cowl, rear trunk lid, above the glove box, passenger seat emboss, and key.
Our sturdy, ratcheting windscreen adjustment system provides six settings over nearly four inches 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.)†
Wheels that are clear coated from the factory give you an improved appearance and easier to clean.
Meets current California Air Resources Board (CARB) and EPA standards.
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!
Improved Ride Quality
Suspension settings revised through repeated testing and your feedback 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.
Improved Wind and Weather Protection
The 2015 Gold Wing’s layered-surface bodywork does more than just look great. It offers superior wind and weather protection around your lower legs, so you’ll experience less buffeting and warmer legs on those cool days.
It’s easy to 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.
Non-airbag models also get a center-mounted lockable glove box for added convenience, boosting the cockpit area storage capacity to 2.8 liters.
Outstanding Storage Capacity
With a total capacity luggage capacity of over 150 liters--including trunk and fairing pockets—the Gold Wing lets you carry plenty of gear for you and your passenger, keep it secure and out of the weather, and helps you stay organized in the process.
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.
Seat Cover and Urethane Seat Material
A special touch: The Gold Wing offers a special 40th Anniversary logo on the rear seat this year. Both the rider and passenger will feel the difference that our urethane seat material makes. The waterproof cover also features a sporty 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.
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 an integrated taillight and saddlebag treatment. New this year: special blacked-out trim on our Red/Black model. Other touches include redesigned front fascia and air intake, blacked-out headlight garnish and instrument panel fonts.
