2009 Honda Gold Wing gets new colours, more toys


The 2009 Honda Gold Wing. Electronically adjustable suspension, heated grips and seat, sound system, GPS navigation, ABS, airbags, reverse gear...

The Honda Gold Wing gets two new colours – blue and silver – for 2009. For increased safety, there’s ABS and airbags, and to help you find your way around, there’s an on-board GPS nagivation system. And for those who love luxury, there’s electronically adjustable suspension and a comfort package that includes heated grips and seat. The bike still weighs all of 417 kilos, and actually has a reverse gear to help you maneouver the thing into and out of tight parking spaces.

The Gold Wing is, of course, all very well as a high-tech luxury tourer on two wheels. But what we’re really waiting for is the Evo6 – which makes so much better use of the Gold Wing’s six-cylinder, 1800cc Honda engine – to go into production…
