Honda GL 1800 GOLDWING 2001

The 1500 Goldwing was quite simply the most prestigious motorcycle limousine since its appearance in 1987. A monster of comfort propelled by a flat 6 cylinder, but whose handling could become hesitant under heavy load..
Almost 15 Years of Marketing, Studies, and Engineering Thinking Later, Honda Introduces New Flagship. Since the appearance of a certain BMW K 1200 LT, we began to wonder among the Japanese. And this golden bird of the year 2000 is a sacred machine that superlativizes its glorious aïonly.
When it comes to design, technique and mechanics, we have changed the century. It is recognizable at first glance although the plastic has been deeply re-visited. The lines are soft, fluid, always impressive and of a majestic class. The bike is beautiful, very beautiful, and commands respect. The engine is still a flat 6 but goes to 1832 cm3, gains injection, catalytic converters, high performance engine management, and displays 118 hp for more than 17 mkg of torque. A real liner. Looking at it with X-rays, we now discover a chassis made up of a double aluminum spar worthy of a hypersport. The water radiators are installed laterally as on the VTR and VFR. This new part-cycle brings a rigidity and a flawless behavior hitherto unknown on a Goldwing. The machine took the opportunity to lose weight by 9 kg. The weight remains substantial but despite its 363 kg dry, its 6 cylinder never fails to breathe and can take this palace to 200 km / h. And all this in imperial comfort. On the 1800, you are seated in an armchair with a plethora of equipment; radio-CD, cruise-control, intercom, electric reverse gear, ABS, dual-CBS, storage everywhere and 145 L of capacity distributed between the trunk and the suitcases, heated handles, rear suspension dashboard adjustment. With the options, the list is comparable to the redoubt catalog. On the new face of the GL, we discover a battery of headlights, amazing efficiency. On the darkest country roads, the light capacity is worthy of the Stade de France.
Certainly, the 1800 Goldwing raises the aura of its dynasty even higher. An accomplished, superb, much more efficient and efficient driver. We can blame it for the lack of certain equipment given the insane price, the absence of standard GPS, its disproportionate size … Let us not forget that this is an extraordinary machine, designed for a max of voluptuousness. A motorcycle of the royal court, which goes on conquest for at least 10 years.
