PERFORMANCE

1832cc LIQUID-COOLED, FUEL-INJECTED ENGINE

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, completely competent year after year.

AGGRESSIVE STYLING

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.

CRUISE CONTROL

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 a real benefit on long, straight highway sections.

EXHAUST SYSTEM

Baggers have a little attitude—and the F6B sets plenty of records in that department. But for 2015 it has a little more audio attitude too, thanks to exhaust internals that give it a throatier, meaner sound.

SHAFT FINAL DRIVE

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.

DESIGN

ADVANCED WIND AND WEATHER PROTECTION

At first glance, the F6B looks bare of wind and weather protection. But on your first ride, you understand its radical bodywork. Through careful design, rider and passenger are shielded from wind, cold and rain. This is a carefully tuned fuselage that deflects the environment and vastly improves rider comfort. It’s part of what makes a Gold Wing world-class touring machine.

CONVENIENCE

iPOD® CONNECTIVITY

The Gold Wing F6B has an unbeatable sound system, so don’t forget to pack your music. Now you can connect a compatible Apple® iPod® player and control it through the Gold Wing's audio controls, or you can plug in a USB flash drive MP3, WMA6 or AAC music files. The connector is located in the lockable saddlebags, where devices can be conveniently carried and discreetly stored.

EASY-UP CENTERSTAND

Sometimes a side stand just isn’t enough. Putting your F6B up on the centerstand gives you a little more confidence when you park it and leave it—no chance of it accidentally being brushed past and pushed over. If you’ve ever come back and found your bike on its side, you know the feeling. It also makes routine maintenance on the bike a lot easier. (Deluxe Model)

SELF-CANCELLING TURN SIGNALS

When you share the road, you always want other riders and drivers to know what your intentions are, so it can be unsettling when you realize you left your turn signal blinking long after the turn. The F6B is equipped with turn signals that automatically turn off after they detect that you’ve completed a turn. (Deluxe Model)

COMFORT

LONG-DISTANCE SEATING

You don’t design a comfortable seat for two without putting in real miles, and Honda engineers have racked up millions of them. Our experience and testing have created a seat design that gives the rider just enough back support while providing the passenger an elevated view so they can see more than the back of a helmet. The F6B’s carefully tuned padding and shape mean more pleasure from more miles in the saddle.

AUDIO SYSTEM WITH SURROUND SOUND

Making a superior motorcycle sound system is a challenge, but it’s one that Honda has mastered like no other bike maker. You’ll be amazed when you experience the clear, powerful surround sound (SRS CS Auto*) with deep, powerful bass. And for those who prefer headsets (SRS Headphone*), you’ll discover sound that feels three-dimensional and totally realistic (SRS CS Auto*)**.

The F6B’s carefully tuned padding and shape mean more pleasure from more miles in the saddle.

HEATED GRIPS

Sure, you always wear gloves, but what if they’re not heavy enough for really cold weather? Now there’s help right at your fingertips-literally. Experienced riders know this concept that sounds like a luxury until you have it; then it becomes a necessity you’ll never want to ride without. (Deluxe Model)

LOW-PROFILE WINDSCREEN

When it comes to engineering, Honda has unmatched resources. Countless hours in our research facility wind tunnels led to the F6B’s revolutionary windscreen. With its minimal design it saves weight, eliminates a prime cause of wind drag and delivers absolutely amazing wind and weather protection. Riders will also love how open the cockpit now feels.

PASSENGER BACKREST

Nothing makes passengers happier, especially on bikes, than a comfortable and secure backrest. The F6B features a sleek, modern design that’s totally integrated with its overall look. It’s just wide enough, just padded enough to make every mile just a little more comfortable for your riding partner. And you can’t be happy if they’re not happy. (Deluxe Model)

HANDLING

ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION

On a touring motorcycle, how much weight you carry constantly changes. Passenger or no passenger, loaded or empty saddlebags: you need an adjustable suspension that’s also easy to adjust. The F6B features a rear Pro-Arm® single-side swingarm with Pro-Link® single shock. Best of all, the spring-preload adjustment is remote-controlled.

VERSATILITY

GLOVEBOX WITHIN GLOVE REACH

Because all Gold Wings feature a low-mounted fuel tank, there’s additional storage room right in front of the rider. It’s easy to access this convenient storage, and it’s lockable for items like your cell phone, GPS or camera for scenic turnouts.

SPACIOUS STORAGE

Creating a high-performance touring bike means paying careful attention to the art of packing. The Gold Wing F6B’s twin saddlebags are mounted low for a better center of gravity, sealed to be weather resistant and lockable to deter thievery. Offering 22 liters of space, there’s ample room for the stuff you need to enjoy every trip.
