2021 Honda Gold Wing

Honda’s world-class tourer gets improved comfort, more cargo space and upgraded infotainment


Markham, ON. January 5, 2021 - Engineered to become the “King of Motorcycles,” Honda’s original Gold Wing quickly adapted to life on the open road, its earliest successors helping to shape the modern touring category through a combination of unparalleled power, comfort and ride quality.


In the subsequent generations, the machine evolved because of the way motorcyclists used it, and for 2021, that trend continues with updates geared toward extended experiences and increased comfort.


Key to the enhanced experience is increased luggage capacity and improved passenger comfort for Gold Wing Tour models, along with platform-wide updates like a new seat, audio equipment and body trim.


NEW FOR 2021


Since an all-new platform in 2018, the Gold Wing has enjoyed focused upgrades, with navigation software updates followed closely by styling- and comfort-minded features including reshaped passenger grab handles, blacked-out components, updated suspension settings, a saddlebag-mounted USB charger and standard fog lights for all Tour models.


The 2021 Gold Wing further expands on the goal, with updates aimed at even greater comfort and convenience.


  • Top trunk on Gold Wing Tour versions is 48 mm wider, 46 mm taller and 34 mm longer. With an added 10 liters of storage (60 liters vs. 50), the trunk can fit two XXL helmets or added luggage for longer adventures

  • Passenger backrest angle updated from 17º to 24.5º for a more relaxed riding position that reduces pressure on the passenger’s hips

  • Passenger backrest is 30 mm taller, and thickness of the backrest foam is increased 5 mm, for increased comfort on long rides

  • Resurfaced seat on Gold Wing Tour and Gold Wing features premium suede-like cover with enhanced feel and appearance

  • Gold Wing seat includes colored piping for added color contrasts

  • Android Auto™ capability joins Apple CarPlay™ integration, enabling customers with Android 5.0 or later smartphones and the Android Auto app to seamlessly enjoy application services such as music, phone calls and messaging

  • Upgraded, 55 watt speakers replace 25 watt speakers for richer midrange audio (Gold Wing Tour includes two speakers at the front fairing and two at the trunk, while Gold Wing features two speakers at the front)

  • Automatic volume-adjustment level optimized for improved experience in a wider range of riding conditions

  • Navigation software updated to include speed-limit information and four map color options

  • XM radio antenna standard, reducing installation steps for available subscription services

  • Gold Wing Tour/DCT available in Gunmetal and Mat Black, Gold Wing Tour DCT Airbag available in Candy Ardent Red/Black two-tone, Gold Wing offered in Mat Ballistic Black Metallic.
