The iconic tourer has been around for full 45 years and it gained a reputation of one of the fines luxury motorcycles around. When someone mentions a cruiser bike, this is the first name that comes to mind to most bikers. One of the reasons for such a reputation is the fact that this model constantly gets updates. Therefore, the 2020 Honda Gold Wing also comes with several interesting novelties. Of course, there are new color options, but the new model also comes with things like new transmission and several new standard features. There is also a revised suspension, while the engine has remained the same this time.
2020 Honda Gold Wing Changes
When it comes to 2020 Honda Gold Wing changes, the list of novelties is actually pretty long. One of the first things we should mention is a new 7-speed DCT transmission. It is optional, while the excellent 6-speed manual comes as standard. Also, the company has revised suspension, so the Gold Wing now delivers even more impressive ride quality. Also, there are some nice improvements in terms of ergonomics, as the new model gets new grab handles for the pillion rider.
Another interesting novelty is a USB charger in the saddlebag. This was a feature reserved for the Air Bag model only and now is standard across the whole range. On the other side, the dash-mounted USB has remained standard across the whole range. Also, the navigation has been updated.
The last but definitely very important major change is the addition of foglights to the list of standard equipment. This is a standard feature in all models.
Typically for yearly updates, there are new color options. A great thing is that you can get a nice contrast, parts like frame, engine and wheels can be blacked now.
