Since the introduction of the 1000cc Goldwing customers feedback showed that an improvement in comfort and additional luggage space was the main requirement so in 1980 the GL 1100 was introduced. The model was the first to be produced at the new manufacturing plant in Ohio USA. The GL 1100 retained many of the features of the original model, the flat four water cooled engine shaft driven to the rear wheel, but the engine capacity was increased to 1085cc. Colour choices for this model was Candy Burgundy and Black Solid. 1982 Honda produced the GL 1100 Interstate fully kitted out with fixed panniers, top box, full fairing, stereo and LCD instruments. With the touring extras the Interstate weight 105 lbs more than the standard model at 750 lbs. Colours were two tone Metallic Brown or two tone Metallic Silver.
