Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer Honda has teased a new touring motorcycle ahead of its debut at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show on October 24, 2017.
Honda has released a new video with a tagline "What Lies Beyond." By looking at the video and the open road touring, the new motorcycle is likely to be the new Gold Wing.
The 2018 Honda Gold Wing is expected to feature major updates including multiple ride modes, traction control, cornering ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and improved infotainment system.
The updated touring motorcycle is likely to get Honda's Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) which is employed in several other models. The new Gold Wing is expected to get other elements to control the gearbox such as thumb wheels and joysticks.
The prominent highlight of the new Gold Wing will be the new steering system with an updated front end. The other updates on the 2018 iteration of the motorcycle include redesigned headlamp and windscreen and clear lens turn indicators.
The updated Gold Wing is likely to draw power from a new flat six-cylinder engine which meets the Euro-V emission norms. Currently, the motorcycle is equipped with a 1,832cc engine churning out 117bhp and 167Nm of torque. The massive touring motorcycle also gets an electric reverse gear.
Honda has teased a new touring motorcycle which will make its debut in October. Apart from the Gold Wing Honda is likely to showcase few other updated models. The new Gold Wing features cosmetic and technical changes, but it will be interesting to see if the new motorcycle gets the new four-cylinder engine.
