2018 Honda Gold Wing Performance Specs
The horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine is famously smooth and powerful. We’ve kept that same overall architecture, but it’s all new 1833cc powerplant for 2018, and over 13 pounds lighter will have you powering through turns with ease. Standard equipment on all 2018 models.
ALUMINUM CYLINDER SLEEVES
High-strength aluminum cylinder sleeves help reduce weight, increase cooling efficiency and reduce engine length. The 73mm cylinder bore and short, high-strength crankshaft also help to make the engine more compact providing a sleek, slimmed down appearance without sacrificing performance. Standard equipment on all 2018 models.
UNICAM CYLINDER HEAD DESIGN
The new engine uses four-valve, Unicam® cylinder head design. That improves engine performance and power while also contributing to the engines overall weight reduction. The four-valve per cylinder design is also a big part of the new Gold Wing’s improved fuel efficiency. Which in turn reduces the amount of times you visit the pump. Standard equipment on all 2018 models.
7-SPEED AUTOMATIC DCT TRANSMISSION
For the first time ever, the Gold Wing is available with the brand new 7-speed Automatic DCT transmission. This is big news as the shifts are faster and smother than ever before. The override seventh gear is perfect for back road or highway cruising. Standard equipment on Gold Wing Automatic DCT, Tour Automatic DCT and Tour Airbag Automatic DCT
6-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION
Want the control of a manual transmission? The new Gold Wing offers the best conventional gearbox in Gold Wing history. Overdrive in sixth gear. Enough said. Standard equipment on Gold Wing and Tour models
