Sometimes a powerplant rises above the merely functional and becomes an icon for superior engineering. It is this engineering that powers the Gold Wing F6B. The technically savvy are impressed with its electronic programmable fuel injection, its compact flat-six design, how it’s horizontally opposed for smoothness and the fact that all this is achieved with regular unleaded gasoline. Even more impressive is the character this liquid-cooled, 1832cc six gives the Gold Wing F6B—effortless, comfortable, and completely competent year after year.
It’s like no other Gold Wing we’ve ever made. The F6B features sleek, super streamlined bodywork with a lower, swoopier profile that sweeps back from the minimal windscreen to the low rear cowl right where the trunk could have been. And where other bikes have chrome, the F6B is pure blacked-out metal, from engine casing to the cast wheels.
Perfected on our Gold Wing touring bikes, the F6B’s cruise control offers a full range of features: set, resume, step up and down. It works seamlessly, and it makes this smooth-riding machine seem even smoother, and it's a real benefit on long, straight highway sections.
Baggers have a little attitude—and the F6B sets plenty of records in that department, thanks to an exhaust internals that give it a throatier, meaner sound.
Clean, efficient and virtually maintenance-free, the F6B’s proven shaft final drive is exactly what you want on a bike like this. You can pile on the miles without ever having to worry about lubricating or adjusting a chain.
