2013 Honda Goldwing Features
Engine and Transmission – 1832cc Liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine is exceptionally smooth and incredibly powerful. And to eliminate crankshaft-induced torque reaction at the chassis, the gearbox spins opposite the crank’s rotation, an elegant solution, and a typical engineering touch. This time-tested power-plant delivers plenty of usable power, using regular unleaded fuel.
Chassis and Suspension – The new design aims for a more integrated appearance, with a sporting edge and visual flow line linking the front to the rear, and a new, integrated taillight and saddlebag treatment. Redesigned front fascia and air intake, blacked-out headlight garnish, and new instrument panel fonts and design. The seat with new urethane seat material, waterproof cover also features a new, sportier, custom perforated look. It offers the best overall handling of any touring machine, but these new settings really improve things when decided to dial it up a notch. The MotoGP-inspired single-sided cast-aluminum swing-arm is super-rigid and lightweight, with reduced unsprung weight, delivering sharper, sportier handling. The unique Pro-Arm design mates up with patented Pro-Link® rear suspension, featuring electronically adjustable hydraulic preload settings for various riding and load conditions. Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with a pair of monitors keep track of both front and rear tire pressures, and the dashboard readout is updated once per minute. It sends an alert if either tire is significantly under-inflated when riding on 2013 Honda Goldwing.
