2009 Honda Gold Wing® Audio Comfort Navi XM ABS

This Is One Of The Limited Edition Lite Blue That Less Then 300 Was Made

The Gold Wing® Premium Audio Comfort Navi XM ABS model gets a performance boost, on top of the new TPMS and XM Radio systems, by way of an integrated anti-lock braking system (ABS) which helps maintain confidence in less than ideal riding conditions.

  • Handlebar switches and controls use easy-to-understand graphic symbols.

Chassis / Suspension

  • Cast-aluminum 18 x 3.5-inch front wheel and 16 x 5.0-inch rear wheel are lightweight and strong. Radial touring tires are specifically engineered for the Gold Wing, providing a combination of excellent traction, cornering grip and long tire life.
  • Unique driveshaft-damping system utilizes a double-pipe structure with a rubber-bonded coating applied to the inner pipe to absorb road shock and engine torque. The long-life design simplifies rear-wheel maintenance.
  • Massive 45 mm front fork houses a cartridge damper in the right leg with 5.5 inches of travel for a smooth yet superb ride in all road conditions.
  • Twin-Spar Aluminum Frame
  • Pro-Link® Rear Suspension
  • Dual full-floating 296 mm front discs with Linked Braking System™ (LBS™) three-piston calipers and a single ventilated 316 mm rear disc with one LBS three-piston caliper provide excellent braking power.
  • Final gearcase assembly design in the Pro Arm eliminates wheel alignment splines and ensures accurate alignment of the rear wheel after servicing.
  • Model equipped with ABS features an electric-motor-driven modulator that provides rapid and precise braking-pressure adjustments, resulting in smooth ABS operation. The system incorporates an integrated ECU, self-diagnostics with an interactive ECU test function and automatic protection against system failure.
  • Computer-controlled adjustable hydraulic rear suspension preload is easily set by the rider with push-button controls, and features a two-position memory.
  • Inherently smooth flat-six-cylinder Gold Wing engine also serves as a tuned stressed frame member. The solid engine-mounting system utilizes specially designed hangers and carefully matched mounting bolts to provide both excellent road feel and minimal engine vibration.
  • Antidive system minimizes front fork dive when braking. The system utilizes brake-fluid pressure generated in the secondary LBS master cylinder mounted on the left fork leg and is activated by input from either the front brake lever or the rear brake pedal. This application of antidive and LBS produces enhanced stability when maneuvering at both low speeds and highway speeds.
  • Unique Pro-Arm® Rear Suspension
  • Linked Braking System (LBS) combined with Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)

Engine / Drivetrain

  • Precise-shifting five-speed transmission includes Overdrive Fifth.
  • Engine cooling system features a series-flow coolant pattern that offers cold-start rideability and provides rapid engine warm-up.
  • Powerful 1,300-watt alternator uses a fluid damper system to minimize alternator noise.
  • Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)
  • Two 40 mm-diameter throttle bodies deliver air to six specially designed Keihin 50-psi high-pressure programmed fuel injectors (PGM-FI). Fuel is delivered through four nozzle holes in each injector, producing an atomized fuel mixture that is highly combustible for optimum efficiency and power.
  • ECU closed-loop emissions system utilizes two oxygen sensors to constantly deliver a precise air/fuel mixture, while two exhaust catalyzers further reduce emissions of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides.
  • High-pressure-formed, sintered-iron Nickalloy crankshaft bearing caps provide quiet operation throughout the engine's operating-temperature range.
  • Rotary Air Control Valve (RACV) maintains precise idle control under widely varying engine loads and operating temperatures.
  • Compact water pump is mounted behind the engine and is driven directly by the crankshaft, contributing to quicker engine warm-up.
  • Silent-type camshaft chains with automatic adjusters provide reliable, maintenance-free operation.
  • Sturdy eight-plate clutch with maintenance-free hydraulic-assist.
  • Two side-mounted radiators enhance cooling efficiency and use low-air-pressure areas created by side cowls to draw cooling air through the radiators and beyond the rider at highway speeds.
  • The ECU provides two digital 3-D fuel-injection maps for each cylinder, creating ideal fuel mixture and spark advance settings for superb rideability. Unique knock-control sensors monitor ignition advance to improve performance throughout the entire rpm range.
  • Parallel two-valve cylinder-head design utilizes direct shim-under-bucket valve actuation allows the first valve clearance inspection service to be at 32,000 miles.
  • Efficient stainless-steel six-into-two exhaust system produces a pleasing, aggressive sound.
  • Low, forward engine placement and solid engine-mounting produce excellent road handling characteristics and impressive low-speed maneuverability.
  • Powerful, fuel-injected 1,832 cc six-cylinder engine produces smooth, effortless power.
