2021 HONDA GOLD WING TOUR AUTOMATIC DCT
GOLD STANDARD MEMORY MAKING
- NEW LARGER TRUNK: Here’s some big news for 2021—or should we say bigger news? That’s because we’ve made the Gold Wing’s trunk bigger. It now holds 61 liters, up 11 liters from last year’s models. 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.
- ELECTRIC WINDSCREEN: You’ll notice a couple of things about the Gold Wing’s windscreen. First, it’s electrically controlled, moving both up and down over a 4.9-inch range for the Gold Wing Tour as well as changing its angle as it raises and lowers. Plus, it automatically remembers the last setting. Because you sit closer to the windscreen, it has a narrower, lower, more sporting profile, yet still offers excellent protection.
- FAIRING: Back in the 1980s, the Gold Wing was the first bike to introduce full-coverage fairings as original equipment, and this latest one is one of our best. It offers excellent wind and weather protection, yet is trimmer and more aerodynamic than in previous-generation models. It also flows more air through refined ducting, helping keep you cooler on hot summer days.
- RIDER/PASSENGER LOCATION: The shorter engine and innovative front suspension let us move the rider farther forward, enhancing the bike’s handling and making you feel more connected to the motorcycle’s steering axis.
- INTEGRATED PASSENGER GRAB HANDLE: Once a passenger has ridden on a Gold Wing, there’s no going back. Functional design touches like the integrated passenger grab handle help make your copilot’s riding experience an absolute pleasure, especially on longer rides.
- HUMAN MACHINE INTERFACE (HMI): Ever have to scroll through some abstract menu to access a feature on your electronic device? You’ll find plenty of simple, dedicated switches and controls on your Gold Wing’s handlebars, ergonomically placed, which give you simple, intuitive control inputs that zero out frustration. There is also a centralized control knob in the console similar to modern autos.
- RIDER/PASSENGER SEATING: Here’s another refinement for 2021, on our Gold Wing Tour models. The seats feature a new, suede-like cover.
- NEW PASSENGER BACKREST: We changed up the angle of the passenger backrest on our Tour models (from 17 degrees to 24.5 degrees), increased its height, and added more cushion. It’s always been a great seat, but now it’s like your favorite easy chair at home!
- LUGGAGE: All 2021 Gold Wings feature integrated saddlebags, designed to hold enough for most weekend trips. The bags open electronically with the push of a button, and lock and unlock remotely with the smart key. They’re hydraulically damped for smooth operation, too.
- FUNCTIONAL STYLING: Sometimes less is more, at least when it comes to motorcycles. We’ve noted that the Gold Wing is lighter, more responsive, more athletic than in previous generations. That goes for its styling as well. While the bodywork still offers excellent weather protection, it’s crisper now, exposing a little more of the engine and chassis. It’s definitely not your grandfather’s touring bike.
- HEATED GRIPS: Part of riding a bike is enjoying the elements. But nobody likes being cold. That’s why every 2021 Gold Wing comes equipped with electric grips as standard equipment.
- HEATED SEATS: Now we’re talking about riding in the lap of luxury (no pun intended). In addition to heated grips, every Gold Wing Tour model also comes with heated seats for both you and your passenger.
