Honda has some good news for those who like their rides the size of a rhino. For these riders, Honda has the GL1800 Goldwing. And if they like their rhinos in fetching Pewter Silver Metallic or Monterey Blue Metallic, the news is even better: these are precisely the new colours announced by Honda for the latest iteration of the Goldwing.
For power, performance and long-range touring luxury, few motorcycles have the presence of the Goldwing GL1800. On the road, or simply grazing in a paddock, you simply can't ignore it.
With smooth effortless power from the flat-six fuel-injected 1832cc engine, easy manoeuvrability, and a low centre of gravity, the Goldwing is the defining long distance tourer.
It also comes with antilock brakes (ABS) and Honda's revolutionary Motorcycle Airbag system. (I'm sure it works, but I can't help thinking of those landers NASA bounced onto the surface Mars when I picture the airbag being deployed.)
With wind-deflecting fairing, integrated premium audio system (with CD stacker), centrally integrated GPS navigation system, heated handlebar grips and seats, compliant suspension (with computer-controlled adjustable pre-load damper settings), few touring motorcycles offer such laden on-road luxury as the 2009 Luxury Goldwing.
For two-wheeled mega-luxury, the Goldwing casts a giant shadow.
You can snap up your Pewter Silver Metallic or Monterey Blue Metallic GL1800 Goldwing now. Selected Dealers have yours on offer for $43,990rrp (plus the associated Government theft charges).
