Gold Wing: Touring Motorcycle

Price: starting at $20,999

Every model lineup has its superstar, the one that really showcases what a company can do when they set their mind to it. At Honda, that's our Gold Wing, where power, sporting performance and long-range luxury converge harmoniously to create the greatest touring bike ever made. It all starts with the Gold Wing's amazing 1832cc engine, and from there Honda's high-tech wizardry takes long-distance touring comfort and convenience to levels other companies have only dreamed of.

And since variety is the spice of road trip life, we offer four different performance options, all with a new feature this year, our Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Our Comfort Package includes heated grips, a heated seat and passenger backrest, and foot-level warm-air ducts. You can get other versions with features such as a state-of-the-art GPS navigation package, XM Radio with real-time traffic, Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS), and even one with the industry's first motorcycle airbag. And be sure to check out the striking colors available too. The 2009 Gold Wing. There's nothing ordinary about it.
