Honda Goldwing GL1800

Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd., today launched its hugely popular touring motorcycle - the Gold Wing - in India. Furthermore, the day also marks the 40th anniversary of the iconic bike.
Powering the Gold Wing is a 6-cylinder 1832cc engine that is claimed to be highly efficient and reliable. The lightweight and rigid twin-spar aluminium frame and single-sided Pro-Arm swingarm delivers stability, and neutral & responsive handling. Additionally, features like five-position heated grips, independently adjustable heated seats and foot-warming system make it a really good tourer during winters. It also gets a luggage capacity of over 150-litres. However, that's not all; the bike also gets a 6-speaker 80W SRS surround-sound system, and riders can connect their iPhone, iPod and USB stick to play their favourite music.
To make it a safe vehicle to drive in all situations and conditions, the Gold Wing comes fitted with Combined Braking System (CBS) and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). For added protection, the bike also gets a fully-integrated airbag (available only in Gold Wing - Airbag), which was an industry-first feature when introduced in 2006. The bike also features a slow-speed, electric reverse system that provides the ease of overall manoeuvring in tight spaces and parking areas.
