AT THE HEART OF EVERY GREAT MOTORCYCLEBEATS GREAT ENGINE. The new 2018 Gold Wings still use horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine, butthat’s where all similarity ends. The new bikes feature new bore and stroke, and adisplacement punched out to 1833cc. Even more important, they’re the first Gold Wingsto use four valves per cylinder, design based off our high-performance Unicam® headdesign. The new engine also features aluminum cylinder sleeves and shorter, stiffercrank. The engine is more compact front-to-back, and that lets you and your passengermove forward in the cockpit for more comfort, better handling, and more connectedfeel with the bike’s steering. Other innovations include integrating the starter andalternator into one unit. The overall effect is groundbreaking: Gold Wing that’s still along-distance champion, but one that offers degree of engaged, sporting performancethat all motorcyclists live for. DOUBLE-WISHBONE FRONT SUSPENSION One of the first things any rider will notice aboutthe 2018 Gold Wings is the radical new doublewishbonefront suspension. Gone is the familiartelescopic fork, replaced with strong, twin-legstructure, pair of “A” arms and single shock andspring. Why? The innovative, Honda-engineereddesign changes the path the wheel follows throughthe suspension’s travel, making it more of avertical movement. That lets us move both theengine and the rider/passenger closer to the frontwheel for improved handling.
