2017 Honda Gold Wing Audio Comfort

/
Experience It All. In Style.

For over four decades, the Gold Wing has been refining the concept of the perfect touring bike. Starting with its horizontally opposed engine offering power, smoothness and ultimate performance. It also sports shaft final drive and a chassis designed for day long comfort, full-coverage bodywork and integrated luggage to tackle any ride in style and comfort.

It’s time to live the dream. Pack up the Gold Wing’s saddlebags. Settle in behind that full-coverage windshield and bodywork. And make some memories that will last a lifetime. Now you’re living the dream. Not dreaming about it.

Innovations

  • MOBILE DEVICE CONNECTIVITY: It’s easy to connect most mobile devices and control them through the Gold Wing’s audio controls. The connector is located in the lockable trunk, where devices can be conveniently carried and discreetly stored.
  • OUTSTANDING STORAGE CAPACITY: With a total luggage capacity of over 150 liters—including trunk and fairing pockets—the Gold Wing lets you carry plenty of gear for you and your passenger, keep it secure and out of the weather, and helps you stay organized in the process.
  • AUDIO SYSTEM WITH SURROUND SOUND: Tuned exclusively for Gold Wing, the surround sound speaker system (SRS CS Auto*) delivers enhanced audio with deep low tones. When using headsets (SRS Headphone**), a three-dimensional sound field brims with realistic audio. (SRS CS Auto* and SRS Headphone** are trademarks of SRS Labs, Inc.) † †Some local governments may prohibit the use of a headset by the operator of a motor vehicle. Always obey applicable laws and regulations.
  • SEAT COVER AND URETHANE SEAT MATERIAL: The best seat in the house. Both the rider and passenger will feel the difference that our 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!
  • SHAFT FINAL DRIVE: Clean, efficient, proven, low-maintenance. Shaft final drive is the perfect choice for a machine like this, and for riders who pile on the miles. You never have to worry about lubrication or adjustment out on the road. And an added plus - it helps keep your bike cleaner, too.
  • PRO-ARM® REAR SWINGARM: 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.
  • 1832CC LIQUID-COOLED, FUEL-INJECTED ENGINE: The Gold Wing’s fuel-injected, horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine is exceptionally smooth and incredibly powerful. The horizontally opposed “flat” six-cylinder design offers a lower center of gravity for an improved ride and a lighter handling feel.
  • WIND AND WEATHER PROTECTION: The 2017 Gold Wing’s layered-surface bodywork does more than just look great. It offers superior wind and weather protection around your lower legs, so you’ll experience less buffeting and warmer legs on those cool days.
  • HEATED GRIPS / SEAT: 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!
  • LOCKABLE GLOVEBOX: All 2017 Gold Wings get a center-mounted lockable glove box for added convenience, boosting the cockpit area storage capacity to 2.8 liters.
  • ADJUSTABLE WINDSCREEN: Our sturdy, ratcheting windscreen adjustment system provides six settings over nearly four inches of travel.
  • IMPROVED RIDE QUALITY: Gold Wings have always placed a premium on ride comfort and smooth touring. But they’re also remarkably capable when the road gets curvy and the pace quickens. Years of refinement and innovation have blessed the Gold Wing with a suspension that’s second to none in the class.
  • 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.
  • CLEAR-COATED WHEELS: Wheels that are clear coated from the factory give you an improved appearance and are easier to clean.
  • EMISSIONS: Meets current California Air Resources Board (CARB) and EPA standards.
