Continuing its spree of launching big bikes under its premium ‘Big Wing’ umbrella, Honda has brought in its flagship motorcycle in the Indian two-wheeler market, Gold Wing Tour. The Honda Gold Wing Tour has been launched in two different variants, prices of which start at Rs. 37.20 lakh, with the bike being brought here through CBU route.
Honda Gold Wing Tour Design
The Honda Gold Wing Tour retains the gargantuan stance of its predecessors, which makes it one of the largest motorcycles on sale in India in terms of overall size. However, at the same time, the motorcycle now looks much sleeker than ever before, thanks to an aerodynamic front fairing with dual all LED headlamp setup, adjustable front windshield, curvaceous looking fuel tank and large panniers on either side towards the rear. The pillion seat of the Honda Gold Wing Tour look very comfortable due to the presence of large cushioned backrest, which also accommodates additional luggage compartment beneath it.
Honda Gold Wing Tour Powertrain
The Honda Gold Wing Tour sources its power from a four stroke, flat six cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel injected, 1833cc engine, which happens to be the biggest motorcycle engine the Japanese two-wheeler major currently makes. The engine makes a maximum power output of 127.7 PS @ 5,500 rpm and 170 Nm @ 4,500 rpm. There are two transmission options one can have in the Honda Gold Wing Tour – while the base variant comes with the engine mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, the more premium variant comes with the same engine coupled to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
Honda Gold Wing Tour Chassis
The large and bulky looking Honda Gold Wing Tour sits on a die cast aluminium frame and is fitted with a suspension combination of a unique double wishbone suspension at the front and pre-load adjustable pro-link monoshock at the back, both of which are fully electrically adjustable. The motorcycle gets dual disc brakes at the front and a single disc brake at the rear.
