I don't know who is in charge of naming the colors of these awesome machines, but "Pearl Stallion Brown," has got to be one of my favorite paint schemes to come through the Cruiser garage. The 2018 Gold Wing is Honda's flagship motorcycle, so you can bet it's going to come equipped with some serious tech for rider safety, comfort, and ease of use.

The Hossack suspension up-front shortens the front end, lightens up the handling, and decreases stopping distance. Dual Clutch Transmission removed the need to shift manually and the four ride modes ensure that you’re getting the most out of your engine at any point. The new, large display screen accurately and efficiently gives you a readout of your bike’s system, and any navigation or music you’re using. Hell, this bike even has Apple CarPlay.

But let’s be real—what’s a bunch of great tech if it isn’t built around an awesome platform? The 1800cc engine that powers the Wing is smooth and strong, and thanks largely to that new front suspension, it handles incredibly well. While she may look like a big beast, once you get moving, the Gold Wing is surprisingly nimble.

Slimmed down and sped up, the new Honda Gold Wing is one awesome bike.
