GOLD WING TOUR DCT JUST GOT BETTER
New people and places. Unforgettable moments. And a whole world to explore.
The Gold Wing Tour DCT is a Honda flagship motorcycle for a reason, offering supreme levels of performance and luxury through the city, or out on the open road. Taking the incredible Gold Wing as a base, it adds carrying capacity, with the rear top box now expanded to a full 61L. A more relaxed angle for the pillion back support – and luxurious new material for both front and rear seats – ensure a cocoon of riding comfort. The audio system and speakers are newly upgraded and generate vivid sound quality. Dual LED fog lights guarantee piercing visibility. And, uniquely, you can specify an airbag with your Gold Wing Tour.
Large storage capacity
For true day-to-day convenience, the rear top box has grown 11L in capacity, to 61L, which means it stores two large full-face helmets with ease. There’s a further 60L between both panniers. All of the luggage opens with a button or via Smart Key, and hydraulic dampers smooth the action.
Comfortable pillion riding position
A more relaxed, 23° angle for the pillion back support – and luxurious new suede/synthetic material for both front and rear seats – ensure long-haul comfort for pillion and rider alike.
Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC)
For an extra layer of confidence in all riding conditions, alongside the 4 default riding modes, Throttle By Wire (TBW) engine management employs HSTC to constantly monitor and maintain rear wheel traction.
Extended electrically operated screen
The smoothly-adjusting windscreen provides excellent wind protection. The height and angle can be adjusted by simply pushing the button up or down on the left handlebar; it also memorises your favourite positions and will auto-adjust accordingly.
Full LED lighting with LED fog lights
The lower portion of the headlights use 5 polished optical lenses on both sides to create a distinct, Jewel-Eye low beam light signature. High beam creates a stereoscopic impression. LED fog lights deliver piercing visibility to other road users.
VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY
The Gold Wing Tour takes care of rider and pillion alike.
It has to, because riding together should be a voyage of shared discovery, and a pleasure. With dynamic handling and engine response to satisfy any rider, the pillion can settle back into their luxurious and even more expansive space and enjoy the performance ahead. They can also easily open each pannier to access contents while seated and there’s also an accessory audio switch (located on the right pannier) for soundtrack control. A USB socket in the left pannier offers a smartphone charging point. For added convenience, especially with a pillion, the Gold Wing comes equipped with two walking modes – forwards and backwards – which is ideal for parking.
BEYOND NEXT LEVEL
Sure, the Gold Wing Tour will cruise motorways all day. But it comes alive in corners.
Just like the Gold Wing, the Gold Wing Tour is a motorcycle built to handle curves. Its die-cast, aluminium twin-beam frame leads with double wishbone front suspension, while electronic damping control provides precise suspension reaction. And then there’s the engine. A 1,833cc, flat six-cylinder masterpiece delivering 170Nm torque at just 4,500rpm. It’s what a throttle hand is made for and, along with Honda Selectable Torque Control, is one of the world’s most impressive, usable and enjoyable motorcycle powerplants. Put the two together and the Gold Wing Tour riding experience goes beyond next level.
