Has there ever been a time when we’ve appreciated a bike like the Honda Gold Wing as much as we do today? It’s designed to let you get out and explore—and to share that precious time with a like-minded companion. You’ll discover (or rediscover) just how much we all need to reconnect with the great outdoors. With its famously smooth 1833 six-cylinder engine, refined bodywork for weather protection, and ample luggage, where you go—and for how long—is totally up to you. Plus, this latest generation of Gold Wing is lighter and more agile, with a level of performance most touring bikes can only dream of. Full of innovative engineering, all Gold Wing models are Android Auto™ compatible, as well as offering Apple CarPlay™ integration. You can choose between a conventional six-speed transmission and Honda’s exclusive automatic seven-speed DCT transmission, depending on the model. And make sure you check out the new color options for 2022!
The Gold Wing’s horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine is famously smooth and powerful. The latest version is an 1833cc design that’s over 13 pounds lighter than the previous generation (more than 8 pounds for the DCT versions).

DOUBLE WISHBONE FRONT SUSPENSION
One look and your eyes will immediately go to the Gold Wing’s radical, Honda-engineered double-wishbone front suspension. The innovative design lets us move both the engine and the rider/passenger closer to the front wheel, giving you more room for added comfort as well as stellar handling.

THROTTLE BY WIRE
The 2022 Gold Wing’s throttle-by-wire system enables features like the bike’s four ride modes and our exclusive Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC).

COMFORT AND CARGO
The Gold Wing’s trunk now holds 61 liters, up 11 liters from the 2020 model. That means in most cases you can get two XXL full-face helmets in there. Combined, the trunk and saddlebags give you 121 liters of storage, plenty to hold what you need for a weekend’s travels. Available accessories include an auto-on interior light, a luggage rack, and more.

Your new Gold Wing’s audio system is an excellent example of state-of-the-art electronic technology. In addition to listening to music, with an available Bluetooth* headset you can make or answer phone calls without taking off your helmet. In addition to a standard USB connector, options include a separate passenger audio control switch, a high-output amplifier and speakers, Sirius XM® satellite radio, a CB radio, and more. Plus, there’s a second USB connector in the left saddlebag of all Gold Wing models.
ANDROID AUTO INTEGRATION
Great news for Android users—With the July 2020 software update, Gold Wings from 2018 onwards are now Android AutoTM compatible, including all our new 2022 models. That means you can connect your Android phone to your Gold Wing to access Google Assistant, and to use navigation tools like Google Maps, Waze and more. Plus, you’ll have access to weather, playlists, music-streaming services and telephone numbers. Available Bluetooth®-compatible headsets let you communicate easily too.* And with more and more apps available all the time, Android Auto and Honda software updates keep your bike’s technology right on the cutting edge.
Apple CarPlay™ INTEGRATION
The Gold Wing’s introduction of Apple CarPlayTM*1 was a first for the motorcycle industry! Apple CarPlay seamlessly integrates your iPhone®*1 to access Apple Maps®, Apple Music®, and other services easily. You’ll have access to weather, playlists, and telephone numbers while aboard. Available Bluetooth®*2-enabled wireless headsets let you communicate more easily than ever. And best of all, with more apps available every day, Apple CarPlay keeps your bike’s technology and convenience on the cutting edge.
Every Gold Wing and Gold Wing Tour is equipped with a big, bright, seven-inch full-color TFT LCD screen to display routes and other navigation information. Plus, since it’s equipped with a gyrocompass, the system even functions inside a tunnel. Independent of the Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto feature, it works with or without your phone. Added bonus only by Honda: 10 years of free map updates!
Your new Gold Wing is packed with smart rider aids. A glance at the dash keeps you informed of things like ride mode (Tour, Sport, Rain, Econ), rear suspension preload settings (solo, with passenger, loaded, unloaded on Tour models), tire pressure* and much more.

Honda's Automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) is a breakthrough feature that makes riding easier and more fun.
FREE YOUR MIND
Our DCT enhances the riding experience by letting you focus on the road and world around you, making each mile even better.
FREEDOM FROM SHIFTING
With DCT, without the hassle of shifting, you’re free to enjoy every curve and every straightaway, on every ride.
Choose Manual Mode, and you can override the automatic shifting on the fly with a pair of handlebar-mounted fingertip shifters.
PROVEN Honda DURABILITY
Because our DCT is built with steel gears inside, there are no drive belts to slip, break, or burn up, and there’s no torque converter. They’re as tough and efficient as any manual gearbox.
SELECTABLE RIDE MODES
Programmed Ride Modes like Tour, Sport, Econ and Rain allow you to adjust the Gold Wing’s ride character. There’s even a special slow-speed Walking Mode, and of course a manual mode that lets you shift via handlebar-mounted shifters.
No clutch means no hunting for neutral, and a left hand that’s freed up to activate a garage-door opener, pay at a toll booth, or use a parking key card.
Supercars and Formula 1 racers use paddle-shift transmissions because they offer the fastest, most efficient shifting and deliver consistent power to the ground.
DCT’s seamless power delivery is a big benefit in low-speed situations like parking lots.
HILL START ASSIST
Eliminate the drama that comes with stopping and restarting on a steep incline. DCT lets you twist and go.
AVOID THE CLUNK
Ever knock helmets with your passenger when shifting? That won’t happen with DCT.
