THROTTLE BY WIRE
The 2018 Gold Wing's throttle-by-wire system affords a degree of engine control you've likely never before experienced. It also enables features like our power delivery modes and our exclusive Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) which you'll find on our Gold Wing Tour models.
HILL START ASSIST
Both the Gold Wing and Gold Wing Tour models feature Hill-Start-Assist (HSA). This feature momentarily holds your motorcycle's position on inclines when the brakes are released and before you apply the throttle, eliminating any roll-back drama. It's a great convenience when starting from a stop on a hill.
Your new Gold Wing features an electronic smart key. When the key is in close proximity (say, in your jacket pocket), you can just hop on, press a button, and ride off. An "answer back" feature lets you find your bike in the dark or in crowded rally parking.
ISG (INTEGRATED STARTER GENERATOR)
Most cars and motorcycles have separate starters and alternators. Not your new Gold Wing. We've combined the starter and alternator into one compact assembly, that is both light and compact. It's part of the Gold Wing's overall weight-saving program, and you'll hear the difference the first time you press the start button.
Gold Wing DCT models offer an exclusive low-speed reverse that uses engine power. The Gold Wing Tour with manual transmission offers a unique electric reverse. Both systems make it easy to maneuver your bike out of a parking space, especially if you need to roll back up hill.
