Honda Luxury Goldwing Shines For 2009

4 May 2009 - Every manufacturer has a superstar and at Honda, the holder of that title is undeniably the GL1800 Goldwing. Power, sporting performance and long-range luxury converge harmoniously to create the greatest touring bike ever made.

It all starts with the Goldwing's amazing flat-six, fuel-injected 1832cc engine. From there Honda's high-tech wizardry takes long-distance touring comfort and convenience to levels other manufacturers have only dreamed of.

Remarkable comfort and exceptional carrying capacity are combined with strong performance and easy manoeuvrability, and a low centre of gravity, lightweight frame and aerodynamic styling contributing to its incredible agility.

Thanks to its smooth, quiet operation, and the wind-deflecting fairing, the rider can relax and enjoy the bike’s integrated premium audio system (with CD stacker) at any speed. Road surfaces are also smoothed out by beautifully compliant suspension systems, featuring a computer-controlled adjustable pre-load damper.

Honda’s superior Dual Combined Antilock Brake System ensures smooth, unruffled stopping power, and for added safety, the Luxury version also incorporates the revolutionary Motorcycle Airbag system.

To give riders an even greater sense of security on every road trip, the 2009 Luxury model also offers a centrally integrated GPS navigation with updated mapping that features easy-operation while on the move.

Astride the luxurious heated seat and passenger backrest, you’ll find yourself at the heart of a large, user-friendly multifunction information centre. The Goldwing’s touring possibilities are further maximised with adjustable heated handlebar grips and seats, plus a range of specially tailored optional luggage accessories.

The Luxury model is available in two striking new colours - Pewter Silver Metallic and Monterey Blue Metallic - and is available now from selected Dealers for an RRP of $43,990 (including GST).
