GOLD WING 2008
IT’S TIME TO START LIVING THE DREAM.
A little time off. The open road, and the freedom
to explore it. Go ahead, get out the map book. Put
the newspaper on hold. Find someone to water
the plants. It’ll all still be there when you get back.
Concentrate on what counts. The smells. The
tastes. The experiences. Living. Now, take that
trip. On a Honda Gold Wing.
THE GOLD WING DIFFERENCE
Honda revolution-
ized the world of motorcycle travel when we introduced our very first Gold Wing ® in 1975. And we’ve
never looked back. The GL1200 in 1984, the
aluminum-framed six-cylinder GL1500 in 1988, and
the state-of-the-art GL1800 in 2001. When it’s your
dream, don’t settle for anything less.
2008
THE ULTIMATE TOURING MACHINE
From Route 66 to the Alcan Highway, from the Rocky
Mountains to the Eastern Seaboard, one motorcycle is known as the world’s ultimate touring
machine—Honda’s spectacular Gold Wing. Smooth, fast, power ful, comfor table and reliable,
it offers impeccable handling. Years of refinement have brought the Gold Wing to where it is
today. No wonder the Gold Wing has been one of Cycle World’s ten best bikes 17 times !
The Gold Wing incorporates some great fundamentals: our fuel-injected 1832cc six-cylinder
engine, a light and strong aluminum frame, shaft final drive, wind-tunnel-designed full-coverage bodywork, and a fully integrated sound system. But there’s much, much more.
IT ALL STARTS WITH THE ENGINE
Every Honda
Gold Wing is built around the best touring engine
the motorcycling world has ever seen: our 1832cc
horizontally opposed six-cylinder powerhouse.
Exceptionally smooth. Unbelievably strong. Legendary in its reliability. In short, the perfect engine for
a touring bike. The inherent balance that a six offers
is one big reason the Gold Wing runs so smoothly.
The gearbox spins opposite the crank’s rotation,
balancing the crankshaft’s torque. A proven performer, it will take you wherever you want to go.
PREMIUM AUDIO

every new 2008 Gold Wing.
We add rear speakers, a pair

tuner and a separate amp.
COMFORT
