Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India is all set to launch the BS6 Honda Gold Wing in India. The company teased the upcoming motorcycles on the Honda BigWing social media handles.
It was in January 2021 that Honda revealed the updated Gold Wing globally. Now, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) is all set to launch the updated motorcycle in India soon. In fact, HMSI teased the new motorcycle on its ‘BigWing’ social media handles. BigWing is Honda’s chain of dealerships catering to premium motorcycles from the brand. Honda’s flagship cruiser motorcycle, the 2021 Gold Wing was introduced with four variants and received updates for rider and pillion comfort as well.
Honda already sells the 2021 Gold Wing in other markets globally and the motorcycle uses the same engine as before, which is a 1,833 cc, liquid-cooled flat-six motor, which makes 125 bhp at 5,500 rpm and 170 Nm of peak torque at 4,500 rpm. The Gold Wing is available in the choice of a 6-speed manual transmission, with an electric reverse gear, or a 7-speed automatic dual-clutch gearbox, with a reverse gear. Of course, the engine will be BS6 compliant. The cruiser motorcycle continues to get four riding modes which are sport, rain, tour and eco.
