    2022 Honda Gold Wing Tour: what’s new

    Not much has changed with this year’s bike – it comes in Gunmetal black metallic colour for now, and what has visually changed, however, is that the 2022 model gets a blacked-out engine, wheels and a new leather seat cover.

    2022 Honda Gold Wing Tour: engine and transmission

    The Honda Gold Wing Tour is powered by a 126hp, 170Nm, 1,833cc, flat-six, liquid-cooled engine, with power being sent to the rear wheel using a throttle-by-wire system. In 2021, the company also made minor tweaks to the fuel-injection system to improve the Gold Wing’s low-speed manoeuvrability. 

    Honda has also upgraded the Gold Wing’s DCT transmission hardware and software to improve low-speed rideability in the city. The DCT system is smoother and quieter in its operation compared to the previous model. It also gets a creep function which will make it easier to ride the bike in traffic or reverse out of a garage.

    2022 Honda Gold Wing Tour: electronics

    The Gold Wing has the same set of electronic wizardry as the older model – traction control, cruise control and Hill Start Assist. In addition, there are also four ride modes – Tour, Sport, Econ and Rain, which can be accessed via the 7-inch TFT LCD display with eight colour models. The unit also features Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and is paired to a 45-watt speaker. There are two Type-C USB ports as well to keep your electronic devices charged.

    The motorcycle also gets LED headlights, dual-LED fog lamps and self-cancelling indicators.

    2022 Honda Gold Wing Tour: chassis

    The motorcycle’s chassis is the same as last year’s model, and employs a die-cast, aluminium frame, suspended by a double-wishbone front suspension and a preload-adjustable pro-link monoshock at the rear. The suspension is electrically adjustable, with four preload settings – rider, rider with luggage, rider plus pillion and rider with pillion and full luggage.

    2022 Honda Gold Wing Tour: availability

    Honda has opened the bookings for the 2022 Gold Wing Tour DCT with airbag option at its exclusive BigWing Topline dealerships across the country.
