    Default Honda Gold Wing 2018 - Bookings Open in India!

    Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. has announced the commencement of bookings for the all-new Honda’s 2018 Gold Wing.

    Gold Wing is Honda’s flagship touring icon. While staying true to its unmatched legacy of refinement, technology and luxury, Honda’s 2018 Gold Wing is an all-new motorcycle from the wheels up.

    Honda’s 2018 Gold Wing gets radical improvements in every category – engineering, handling, technology, comfort and performance. It’s lighter, more powerful, more nimble and more engaging. The all-new Gold Wing features new technologies including a newly-developed horizontally-opposed 6-cylinder engine, 7-speed DCT and Honda’s original double wishbone front suspension.

    Now with the dual clutch transmission (DCT)!

    After gaining huge popularity with its introduction in Africa Twin, Honda brings the DCT convenience in the Gold Wing. The third generation DCT (Dual-Clutch Transmission) is the best DCT Honda has ever developed, and the first with seven speeds. Even better, this DCT 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.

    Elaborating how the new 2018 Gold Wing defines the Gold standards of touring, Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President - Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said, “The 2018 Gold Wing 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 Gold Wing 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 Gold Wing with all these new features is a complete generation leap and yet comes with an unmatched price.”

    New Stronger & Lighter chassis:

    The new Gold Wing’s die-cast aluminium twin beam frame is stiffer and lighter by 2kg, promising enriched handling and a smoother ride. A first for Honda globally is the Gold Wing’s new double wishbone front suspension which reduces friction in comparison to traditional telescopic setup. The tourer is now easier to manoeuvre and 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.

    Engine & Electronics:

    Going back to the drawing board, the 2018 Gold Wing is powered by a completely reworked 1,833cc engine. Still as a horizontally-opposed flat six, but now with four valves per cylinder instead of two. Peak power of 125bhp arrives @ 5,500rpm, with peak torque of 170Nm delivered @ 4,500rpm. The overall effect is groundbreaking: a Gold Wing that’s still a long-distance champion, but one that offers a degree of engaged and sporty performance.

    The newly introduced Throttle By Wire (TBW) adds 4 rider modes to prevent loss of grip in the rear wheel (TOUR, SPORT, ECON and RAIN). The rider modes manage HSTC (Honda Selectable Torque Control), suspension damping for heightened rider control. Additionally, brake force Idling Stop and Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) for an ultra-quiet start-up. The Gold Wing is equipped with ABS and Dual-Combined Braking System (D-CBS) as standard to optimally distribute braking force to the front and rear wheels. The inclusion of a new Hill Start Assist adds ease of use.

    New Key Features of the 2018 Honda Gold Wing

    Cruise control via Throttle By Wire (TBW)
    Electric windscreen adjustable for angle and height
    Apple CarPlay Integration allows iPhone users to connect their smartphones with the Gold Wing
    7-inch TFT colour display
    Full LED lighting and auto-cancelling indicator
    Smart key control adds convenience for ignition and luggage

    The best news is that even as the new 2018 Gold Wing gets a 360 degree value boost, it comes at a starting price of Rs. 26.85 lacs (Ex-showroom, Delhi).

    Customers can choose between the 2 variants - Gold Wing and Gold wing Tour in the new glossy CANDY ARDENT RED colour.

    Starting today, Honda has opened bookings for the new 2018 Gold Wing.
    Customers can book the same only at Honda’s exclusive Wing World sales & service outlets in Delhi (C-126, Industrial Area Phase - I, Naraina) and Mumbai (H-Kantilal & Co. Compound, Sakinaka, Andheri-East).

    Deliveries for the new Gold Wing will begin this New Year 2018
    on first come first serve basis.
