The question: How does the dominating Wing fare against the new Beemer challenge? As far as price goes, the base Gold Wing retails for an identical MSRP as the similar spec GTL model (alright, it’s a buck cheaper than the GTL’s $23,200…). The K1600GT will cost $20,900.
We know that the instrumentation gives the Gold Wing a more modern look from the cockpit too. The instrument cluster showcases some next-generation features in the electronics.

A brighter screen displays information from the latest version of the Honda Satellite Linked Navigation System. The new Nav is complemented by an updated audio system, featuring SRS CS Auto surround-sound and MP3/iPod connectivity. The tunes are also supplemented by XM radio but unchanged is the familiar 1832cc Flat Six powering the Honda. The Wing also remains a heavyweight touring platform, tipping the scales at a staggering 903-944 pounds, depending on the options. Thankfully, the electric Reverse system remains a standard feature. Also standard fare on the base Gold Wing is five-position heated grips, seat and backrest. Honda’s combined braking system is standard as well, with ABS optional.
