[] - 2021 Honda Gold Wing and Gold Wing Tour First Look

Honda sprung news today about upgrades for its 2021 Gold Wing, the biggest of them being a capacity increase for the Tour version’s trunk. Shrinkage in luggage capacity was the chief complaint with the heavily downsized 2018 ’Wing: the new trunk holds 61 liters of storage, compared to the previous 50 liters, which Honda says will easily accept two XXL full-face helmets (even when equipped with headsets).

The passenger seat’s backrest now has a more relaxed angle, thicker foam and a taller profile to keep your passenger even happier. The seat gets a new faux suede cover with an enhanced appearance, along with colored seat piping for added color contrast.

Fog lights are now standard for Gold Wing Tour models while the rear turn signals on all 2021*’Wings are now red for a clean, stylish look, says Honda.

The top trunk on the Gold Wing Tour is wider, taller and longer, increasing storage while offering a taller, thicker seat for improved passenger comfort.

A number of audio improvements*are also along for the ride, for both Gold Wing and Gold Wing Tour models, including upgraded, 45-watt speakers (previously 25-watt) with richer audio; optimized automatic volume-adjustment level and a standard XM radio antenna. Android Auto integration joins Apple CarPlay integration. The navigation system has also been updated with four map color options plus speed limit information.

Other changes include updated suspension settings, a saddlebag-mounted USB charger, and blacked out components.

Mechanically, the Gold Wing remains unchanged. The 1833cc flat-Six returns, with a choice of either a six-speed manual or seven-speed DCT gearbox. The double-wishbone front suspension returns, as does the Pro-Link rear suspension. Claimed curb weights remain the same as the 2020 model, ranging from 787 pounds for the Gold Wing to 847 pounds for the Gold Wing Tour Air Bag DCT.

Colors and pricing for the 2021 Honda Gold Wing:

  • Gold Wing Tour Air Bag DCT: Candy Ardent Red – $32,600
  • Gold Wing Tour DCT: Candy Ardent Red; Metallic Black – $29,300
  • Gold Wing Tour: Candy Ardent Red; Metallic Black – $28,300
  • Gold Wing DCT: Deep Pearl Gray – $25,100
