Introducing the 2024 Honda Gold Wing, Honda’s flagship touring motorcycle. With almost 50 years of history, there have been speculations about the Gold Wing’s future, but it’s back for another year in North America. Honda is offering five trim levels for 2024, although in reality, there are three distinct models with transmission options. You can choose from the Gold Wing Tour Airbag DCT, the Gold Wing Tour with DCT or six-speed manual, and the base Gold Wing with DCT or manual. For 2024, there are no significant mechanical changes, just updated with fresh color schemes.
The Gold Wing underwent substantial upgrades in 2018, including a revamped six-cylinder engine, a double wishbone suspension, and weight reduction. While 2024 doesn’t bring any mechanical modifications, it introduces contemporary color options. In recent years, there have been navigation updates, but advanced features like adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring remain absent.
In summary, the 2024 Gold Wing remains largely unchanged. It offers a host of touring-friendly features, such as a seven-speed DCT transmission, a 7-inch TFT screen, navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, an adjustable electric windscreen, Smart Key operation, four riding modes, traction control, and Hill Start. The liquid-cooled 1,833cc flat-six engine continues to provide power across all trims. The Tour version includes a spacious 61-liter top box with an integrated passenger backrest.
For 2024, the Gold Wing Tour Airbag DCT is priced at $33,000, featuring a Pearl White color scheme with blackout accents. The Gold Wing Tour and Tour DCT have an MSRP of $28,700 and $29,700, available in Pearl White or the new Gray Metallic/Black combo, featuring blacked-out elements and bronze accents on the engine cases. The base model, offered with DCT or a six-speed manual, comes with an MSRP of $24,700 for the manual and $25,700 for the DCT. It is available in the Matte Armored Green Metallic color with blacked-out details.
