Custom Attitude

Honda Gold Wing F6B touring bagger is one of the most popular touring bikes over the last decade. It centers on fully-dressed touring bikes stripped down to just a couple of bags out back, with cut-down screen and minimal fairing. It’s a style that has injected an undiluted custom attitude into the traditional touring arena, with a combination of cool credibility, genuine practicality and fresh, exciting style inspired by the needs of a younger generation of rider.

The Gold Wing F6B stripped, stylish and smooth; part custom, part cruiser is a touring bike distilled to its absolute essence, powered by one of Honda’s engineering jewels – the incredibly soulful horizontally-opposed six-cylinder engine. In celebration of the Gold Wing’s 40th year of production, the Gold Wing F6B has received two important upgrades in response to owner requests, plus commemorative emblems and key fob to mark this special motorcycling milestone.

The 1,832cc engine driving the Gold Wing F6B is an undoubted masterwork, but it’s the style of the Gold Wing F6B that initially grabs attention. From its stubby screen it flows fluidly from front to rear, and for the new Matt Bullet Silver Metallic paint, set against blacked-out frame, forks, wheels and swing-arm, gives Honda’s biggest Bagger a subtle, cool presence. Exclusive seats provide long distance comfort and support for rider and pillion and the 4-speaker sound system guarantees listening pleasure at speed from the RDS stereo system.

Feedback from owners has led to two specification upgrades. Reverse gear is now also original equipment on the Gold Wing F6B. Operated from the right handlebar and driven by the electric starter motor reverse helps back the bike out of an uphill parking space, especially when loaded or with a pillion. The second addition – electronic cruise control – makes long highway days pass even more easily.

The twin-spar aluminum frame provides strength and delivers a great handling motorcycle, as do 45mm anti-dive telescopic forks and Pro-Link rear suspension. A Dual Combined ABS braking system ensures rapid and secure stopping power on a variety of road surfaces and conditions.

Built to be at home in an urban environment as well as the open road, the Gold Wing F6B is 29kg lighter than the Gold Wing GL1800 yet packs similar chassis, power and stunning torque delivery. Add its stunning looks and undeniable road presence – plus 40th anniversary emblems found on the fairing front and inner – and it’s a machine that serves up a very special riding experience.

Few riders will forget their first encounter with this particular motor – its smooth power delivery and instant avalanche of torque are rapidly addictive. Precisely metered fuel and air mixture by PGM-FI fuel injection the Gold Wing F6B’s 1,832cc, horizontally opposed SOHC 2-valve six-cylinder engine has a bore and stroke of 74mm x 71mm, compression ratio of 9.8:1 and produces 167Nm torque @ 4,000rpm, with power output of 87kW @ 5,500rpm. The five-speed gearbox includes an overdrive top gear and delivers the engine’s torque via shaft drive.
