Honda completely redesigned its flagship tourer back in 2018, deleting the top case, trimming its girth, and shaving almost 100 pounds of weight. What you’re looking at is called simply “Gold Wing” these days. The stripped-down bagger exploits its new, slimmer physique fully with that 1,833cc flat-six mill, which is now free of the extra pounds and can better uncork those 125 horses. The Honda-patented double-wishbone front end makes for a plush ride, and the perfectly neutral riding position coupled with a surprisingly deep lean angle just begs pilots to seek out twisty corners. For $23,800, you can have a bagger unlike any other, replete with all the high-tech accoutrements—full-color display, cruise control, ABS, stereo, etc.—and an incredibly responsive powerband with crisp handling, excellent braking, and phenomenal suspension. And $1,200 more—that’s $25K flat, a full $2,000 less than a new Street Glide Special—you can have it with DCT, Honda’s groundbreaking automatic transmission. MSRP for the base 2020 model is $23,800.
