There’s big news when it comes to the new 2014 Honda® Gold Wing®: we’ve taken the world’s best touring motorcycle and made it even better. The new bodywork is the first thing you’ll notice, complementing the best engine and chassis package the touring world has ever seen. Look a little further and you’ll discover great new improvements to the audio system, the available navigation system and the Gold Wing®’s comfort, too. There’s new functionality as well, like integrated iPod® connectivity and the ability to upload trips to the Navi system from your home computer.
- Satellite-Linked Navigation System
Our exclusive Honda® design and technology gives you the best available fully integrated GPS-based Navi system on two wheels, featuring a brighter color LCD screen and step-by-step verbal directions via Gold Wing®’s sound system. And new for 2014: a new lane guidance feature, junction view, 3-D terrain view and a new GPS receiver that captures satellite signals faster. Plus, with TripPlanner.Honda.com, you can plan trip routes on your home computer and upload them into your Gold Wing®’s Navi system.
- Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Checking tire pressure can be a hassle—except when you’re riding a Gold Wing® with our Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). A pair of monitors keeps track of both front and rear tire pressures, and the dashboard readout is updated once per minute. They’ll send you an alert if either tire is significantly underinflated.
The Gold Wing® Features heated grips, a heated rider’s seat and a heated passenger seat/backrest, all with individual rider and passenger controls. There’s even a foot-warming system for cold mornings!
- Seat Cover And Urethane Seat Material
The best seat in the house just got better. Both the rider and passenger will feel the difference that our new urethane seat material makes. The waterproof cover also features a new sportier, custom-perforated look too. A day in the saddle never felt so good!
- Audio System With Surround Sound
Featuring a surround-sound system that’s tuned exclusively for the Gold Wing®. When using the speakers (SRS CS Auto*), the audio image is enhanced along with deep low tones, producing a powerful surround sound. When using the headsets (SRS Headphone**), you’ll hear a three-dimensional sound field brimming with realistic sound. (SRS CS Auto* and SRS Headphone** are trademarks of SRS Labs, Inc.)€
The Gold Wing®’s MotoGP-inspired single-sided cast-aluminum swingarm is super rigid and lightweight, with reduced unsprung weight, delivering sharper, sportier handling. Its unique Pro-Arm® design mates up with Honda®’s patented Pro-Link® rear suspension, featuring electronically adjustable hydraulic preload settings for various riding and load conditions.
- Improved Wind And Weather Protection
The 2014 Gold Wing®’s layered-surface bodywork does more than just look great. We took the opportunity to fine-tune the rider and passenger environment. There’s appreciably more wind and weather protection around your lower legs, so you’ll experience less buffeting and warmer legs on those cool days.
- 1832cc Liquid-cooled, Fuel-injected Engine
The Gold Wing®’s fuel-injected, horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine is exceptionally smooth and incredibly powerful. This time-tested powerplant delivers plenty of useable power, using regular unleaded fuel. And to eliminate crankshaft-induced torque reaction at the chassis, the gearbox spins opposite the crank’s rotation—an elegant solution, and a typical Gold Wing® engineering touch.
