GL1800 Gold Wing Deluxe
The Gold Wings unique fuel-injected flat-six engine delivers tireless performance together with incredible smoothness and minimal noise. Just as the engine enjoys a legendary reputation for reliability, so the rest of the machine is finished to the very highest standards, with outstanding build quality and paint finish. Meanwhile, the wind-deflecting fairing, huge carrying capacity and user-friendly features such as antilock brakes and the new, improved audio system are clear evidence of the effort and passion behind the latest evolution of this most advanced and full-featured touring motorcycle.
New For 2012
More dynamic exterior styling
As befits the Gold Wings status as an aerodynamically refined touring powerhouse, the new model has revised exterior styling. Bold, integrated lines better link the front and rear of the machine, communicating its elegance and performance with sharp, dynamic forms. The re-shaped rear light further adds to the distinctive new look.
Improved wind protection
Months of both wind tunnel tests and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) research have helped create a new front fairing with increased wind and weather protection.
Enhanced chassis stability and improved ride quality.
Changes to the shape of the rear bodywork include air vents that help to reduce the area of negative pressure that forms at the back of the bike, improving stability at speed. At the same time, adjustments to the suspension front and rear give a superb ride quality without sacrificing control.
Increased luggage capacity.
Larger panniers mean the Gold Wings total luggage capacity is now over 150 litres.
Surround sound audio system with iPod connectivity NEW
The adoption of a new 6-speaker 80W SRS surround-sound system offers superb sound presence and quality. Riders can now play MP3, WMA and AAC music files on the move by connecting an iPod, iPhone or USB stick. The result is easy access to any track you wish to hear.
The new, fully-integrated system with brighter screen includes a next-generation receiver for greater reception sensitivity for more reliable navigation.
All motorcycles and scooters are protected by 'state of the art' identification technologies as part of the Master Security scheme.
