Today’s GL1800 is a class-leading machine which adds fine handling to the seamless torque of that glorious flat-six engine. The 30th Anniversary Edition of the world-famous Gold Wing celebrates the whole history of the best horizontally-opposed motorcycles ever by carrying three 30th Anniversary emblems on the front cowl, rear top box and on the lower cockpit control panel. Chrome-plated ‘Gold Wing’ emblems also feature on the side covers of the machine, while the Wing’s large LCD information panel features a unique commemorative display during both start-up and shut-down cycles. The cost of the latest GL1800 Gold Wing is around £24,000, depending on the model, on the road.
