Few motorcycles are capable of gobbling up pavement as quickly, easily, and comfortably as a Honda Gold Wing. The current version of this award-winning motorcycle is nothing short of remarkable, handling interstates, back roads, and city streets equally well with or without a passenger. For 2020, Honda has added new features and fine-tuned important details on its popular luxury-touring machine, a family of six-cylinder, integrated-luggage motorcycles that includes the Gold Wing, Gold Wing Tour, and Gold Wing Tour Airbag with six-speed manual and available dual-clutch automatic transmissions. Those improvements include making fog lights standard on the Gold Wing Tour for greater visibility in varying weather conditions.

The premium top-case-equipped model also benefits from reshaped rear-seat grab handles that are intended to better suit passengers of all body sizes and shapes. USB ports previously found only in the saddlebags of the Gold Wing Tour Airbag are now standard across all models, complementing the dash-mounted outlet and making charging electronic devices more convenient for riders and passengers alike. Further, the navigation system received minor software updates, suspension settings are updated, and the button for the center storage pockets has improved action.

Cycle World's Annual Ten Best Bikes

The Honda Gold Wing offers performance and amenities to keep riders and their passengers going in practically any conditions. In fact, the very notion of high-tech luxury touring exists because of the Gold Wing. This motorcycle in various displacements has won 21 Cycle World Ten Best Bikes awards since 1976.
