The Honda Gold Wing was first introduced in 1975. In a period spanning nearly four decades, it has proven to be a popular model within Honda's motorcycle repertoire. Renowned for its distinctive appearance and function as a touring bike, it is marketed toward middle-aged clients feeling young at heart. The Gold Wing Trike was made to cater to an enjoyable ride without having to lean into potentially hazardous turns. The trike modification negates the oft tiring need to be supported by the operator when the bike is at an idle standstill.

Engine Specifications

Honda's premier touring model has a liquid-cooled, horizontally-opposed six-cylinder engine capable of mimicking sports car performance without the slightest strain. With an engine displacement of 1,520cc and sporting a compression ratio of 9.8 to 1, a scant flick of the throttle sends you vaulting yards ahead of those lazy lines of cars. The Gold Wing's idle engine speed is ideally set to 800 +/- 80rpm to make the most of its fuel economy.

Dimensions

The 1500 Trike possesses a loading capacity maximum of 227kg. The Wing's rear wheel size of 15 inches applies a heap of asphalt-clawing rubber to ensure a wide margin of safety at highway speeds. It has a 73-inch wheelbase.

Capacities

The Gold Wing's fuel tank has a capacity of 6.3 gallons while 3.7 qts. of engine oil lubricate its innards to ensure proper mechanical dynamics, thereby reducing wear and tear of metal to metal contact. The cooling system operates with 4.3 qts. of fluid to keep a tolerable reign on engine temperatures. It seats an operator and one passenger at an ergonomically designed seat height of 29.1 inches.
