AT A GLANCE
6 CYLINDER ENGINE
The legendary, horizontally-opposed, 1,833cc six-cylinder engine is smooth and powerful. The Unicam® cylinder head design improves engine performance and power, while the four-valve per cylinder design is a big part of the Goldwing’s superior fuel efficiency.
DOUBLE WISHBONE FRONT SUSPENSION
The innovative design changes the path the wheel travels through the suspension stroke and allows the engine and the rider to be closer to the front wheel. You get more room and stellar handling, with supple bump absorption, reduced sliding friction and sharp steering accuracy.
APPLE CARPLAY™ and ANDROID AUTO
Apple’s CarPlay™*1 seamlessly integrates your iPhone®*1 into your new Goldwing. That means you can use your iPhone® to access Apple Maps®, Apple Music®, and other services easily.
You can also connect an Android phone using Android Auto, so you can access Google Assistant, use navigation tools like Google Maps, Waze, and more. Plus, with both systems, you’ll have access to weather, playlists, music-streaming services and telephone numbers. Available Bluetooth@reg;*2 enabled wireless headsets let you communicate more easily than ever.”.

There are four default riding mode settings: TOUR, SPORT, ECON and RAIN to cover multiple riding conditions and situations. Each mode alters character and power delivery, Honda Selectable Torque Control input and ABS parameters.
DUAL CLUTCH TRANSMISSION (DCT)
Honda’s revolutionary DCT will transform your riding experience. It eliminates clutch levers, stalling, and the need for you to shift, while also giving you complete control to select gears if you want to. DCT also allows you to focus more on your riding line, braking points, cornering and acceleration. Further benefits include reduced fatigue, low stress urban riding, and best of all, it lets you focus on the most rewarding parts of your ride.
REVERSE AND WALKING MODE
Walking Mode lets you creep forward and reverse at a walking pace just by operating the buttons on the left handlebar switch. Think how easy it will be to get in and out of tight parking spots with a fully loaded bike.
ABS & D-CBS
Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) is standard on both front and rear wheels. The Dual Combined Brake System (D-CBS) optimally distributes braking forces to the front and rear wheels. It also operates according to the selected ride mode, automatically adjusting the braking characteristics to the riding situation.
The Goldwing Tour Premium’s suspension features four electronically adjustable modes for varying loads. You can select (1) Rider, (2) Rider with loaded bags, (3) Rider and passenger, and (4) Rider and passenger with loaded bags.
Honda pioneered the concept of a motorcycle airbag for increased rider safety, and continues to lead the way with the Goldwing Tour Premium.
The Goldwing’s windscreen is electrically controlled, moving both up and down over an 125mm range for the Goldwing Tour (105mm for the Goldwing), and it changes its angle as it raises and lowers. Plus, it automatically remembers the last setting. As you sit closer to the windscreen, it has a narrower, lower, more sporting profile, yet still offers excellent protection.
The Goldwing Tour seats are not just comfortable and supportive, and finished with premium luxury covers, they are also heated, for both you and your passenger, so you can enjoy comfortable touring all year round.
All Goldwing models feature a complete LED lighting package, including headlights and tail light. The Goldwing Tour Premium adds standard fog lights to the package, improving visibility in tricky conditions.
HONDA SELECTABLE TORQUE CONTROL
Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) constantly monitors your bike’s rear-wheel speed, and adjusts torque instantly. It’s a great feature when riding in the rain, on gritty roads, over wet leaves, or anywhere else where surface conditions can compromise traction.
With 61L capacity, it can fit two full face helmets with room to spare. Combined with the 60L capacity of the saddlebags, it’s plenty to hold what you need for a weekend away. With the Smart key present, a push button opens all of the boxes, while it’s also possible to temporarily unlock via remote control. Hydraulic dampers smooth the opening and closing.
