2010 Honda GL1800 Goldwing gets C-ABS


The new Honda Goldwing looks as terribly dull as the old one, but we suppose it works even better, and with C-ABS and airbags, it's also safer than ever before

Honda have released pics and specs of the 2010 GL1800 Goldwing and the big news is… …the availability of new colours – white, silver, dark blue, metallic red, brown and black. Oh, well, there are also bits like an airbag, C-ABS and remote adjustable preload on the rear suspension (with memory settings). Plus, there’s the biggest, plushest motorcycle seat in the world, CD-player, integrated navigation system, multi-function display on the dash and a host of other toys for the long-distance motorcycle tourer.

The 1,832cc six-cylinder engine remains as before and should be competent as ever, if a bit dull. We also wish Honda had revamped the bike’s styling, which is still stuck in the 1990s. The bike is priced between US$23,000-28,000 (depending on the toys you choose) but Goldwing buyers should really wait for next year's model, for which Honda are said to be planning a complete revamp.
