2017 Honda Gold Wing Buyer's Guide | Specs & Price

The long-lived Gold Wing is a full-dressed tourer that has not succumbed to the temptation of adding every electronic gadget and gizmo, and still gets by with a SOHC 2vps liquid-cooled flat-six.

What it lacks in technological flash, it makes up in reliability, comfort, cargo capacity, styling, and outstanding handling. Much like a car, the Gold Wing comes in three trim packages.

The basic Audio Comfort package includes premium surround sound, electronic reverse, cruise control, and heated grips. Pump up to the Audio Comfort Navi XM and you get GPS navigation, Sirius XM radio, and weather and traffic bands.

The top-of-the-line Audio Comfort XM ABS takes the other features and adds Combined Anti-Lock Brakes—for that feature alone, we recommend going with the high-end edition, but it’s nice to know you have a choice.
