Q. Which model of Goldwing is the best? The old model or the latest one - Gold Wing?
  • We would recommend you to go for the latest one as The Gold Wing is all about relaxed touring. All of which would be incomplete without the electronic wizardry it boasts of. The 2018 version gets ride-by-wire and four riding modes, namely: Tour, Sport, Econ, and Rain, which a first in Gold Wing's history. There’s also keyless ignition, an electronically-controlled windscreen, music system, heated grips, and even an air-bag as an option. Let’s not forget hill start assist, ABS, and the much-needed cruise control. The Tour variant of the Gold Wing additionally gets heated seats (not really a boon on Indian roads, unless you’re somewhere up North), a trunk that has a keyless function, Honda’s version of traction control called the Honda Selectable Torque Control, and electronic rear suspension, which allows you to adjust it with a button instead of having to remove the fairing of the bike, to do so manually. Honda Gold Wing is powered by an 1833 cc engine. This Gold Wing engine generates a power of 126.4 PS @ 5500 rpm and a torque of 170 Nm @ 4500 rpm. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.
