2021 Honda Gold Wing Tour DCT Photo Gallery

Photos, pricing, and specs on Honda’s most luxurious touring motorcycle.

When it comes to luxury on two wheels, there’s not a name in the game more respected than Honda’s Gold Wing. Since the late ’70s the Wing has been known for its high level of comfort and touring capability, and it has only grown more capable over the decades of production. Now for 2021, we see continued improvements, specifically in the areas of passenger comfort and storage capacity. The Gold Wing Tour Automatic DCT, seen here in Candy Ardent Red, starts at $29,300—an increase of $300 over the same model from last year.

The first change we see for 2021 is increased storage capacity for the top trunk included on Tour models. This storage compartment has been enlarged 11 liters to fit two helmets side by side, now totaling 61 liters of storage capacity. Along with the update of the top case comes a redesign of the passenger backrest, now sporting more padding, a more relaxed angle, and a taller back. Tour models see a new suedelike seat cover while the non-top-case-equipped Gold Wing and Gold Wing DCT each see a pop of contrast with new colored seat piping.

In addition to the comfort updates, the new Gold Wings also come with updated speakers, now larger 55-watt units. XM satellite radio antennas now come standard on all models and, since 2018, are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible.

All model year 2021 Gold Wings are in dealerships now, but you can also head to powersports.honda.com for more information.
