ized the world of motorcycle travel when we introduced our very first Gold Wing in 1975. And weve never looked back. The GL1200 in 1984, the aluminum-framed six-cylinder GL1500 in 1988, and the state-of-the-art GL1800 in 2001. When its your dream, dont settle for anything less.

Mountains to the Eastern Seaboard, one motorcycle is known as the worlds ultimate touring machineHondas spectacular Gold Wing. Smooth, fast, power ful, comfor table and reliable, it offers impeccable handling. Years of refinement have brought the Gold Wing to where it is today. No wonder the Gold Wing has been one of Cycle Worlds ten best bikes 17 times !

The Gold Wing incorporates some great fundamentals: our fuel-injected 1832cc six-cylinder engine, a light and strong aluminum frame, shaft final drive, wind-tunnel-designed full-coverage bodywork, and a fully integrated sound system. But theres much, much more.
