2020 Honda Gold Wing Tour Buyers Guide: Specs & Prices

Although it’s the base model of the 2020 Honda Gold Wing Tour range, that standard Gold Wing Tour is a fully equipped luxury touring motorcycle.

A potent flat-6 1833cc motor with Honda’s proprietary Unicam valve train and four-valves per cylinder moves the 2020 Gold Wing Tour along. Power is on-tap everywhere, making high-speed passes child’s play. The top ratio of the six-speed transmission acts as an overdrive, giving the Gold Wing Tour a fuel consumption estimation of 42 mpg. There are four ride modes, including an Eco option to squeeze even more distance out of a gallon of ethyl. Cruise control is standard.

Using a single shock suspension arrangement at both ends, there is more than four inches of travel for both wheels, and it is incredibly plush. There are no manual dampening adjustments, though the settings are electronically altered when you switch between the Tour, Sport, Rain, and Econ ride modes. The 2020 Honda Gold Wing Tour is steady as she goes on the highway, yet responds with sportbike-like confidence in the twisties. ABS and linked braking are standard.
