Honda Gold Wing
Launched more than 40 years ago, the Gold Wing is still on the leading edge of motorcycle touring today
Honda’s Gold Wing is one of the most popular grand-touring motorcycles of all time, with roots all the way back to the mid-1970s. The latest Wing—available in standard or gizmo-rich Tour trims, both powered by the same smooth-as-silk six-cylinder powerplant—feels like it’s floating down the road, thanks in part to its patented frictionless front end. Handling in any type of conditions is outstanding, particularly for an 800-plus-pound motorcycle.
