We get to see the Honda Goldwing 2021 an updated version.
In its first new-model announcement since the New Year.
Honda yesterday confirmed that the Gold Wing family gets several upgrades for 2021.
Goldwing comes designed to deliver improved comfort and convenience for long-distance touring.
The improvements are a capacity increase for the Tour version’s trunk, which now readily accepts two full-face helmets.
Honda also announced a host of upgrades to its smallest dual-sport models, newly named the CRF300L and CRF300L Rally.
Thanks to a 15 percent increase in engine displacement.
The popular standard model has come further updated with a cut in weight and increased suspension travel.
Upping its off-road capability without sacrificing performance in the city.
The Rally model gets increased range thanks to a larger fuel tank, making it even better prepared for extended adventures.
“Honda listens to its customers, a fact that comes highlighted in our latest new-model announcement,” said Lee Edmunds, Senior Manager of Powersports Marketing for American Honda.
“In the case of the Gold Wing and our smallest street-legal CRF models, the 2021 iterations reflect improvement.
Gold Wing comes highly requested by people who ride them every day, and the motorcycles get better.
Honda looks forward to customers getting the chance to experience the updates themselves.”
The 2021 Gold Wing expands on the goal of long-distance touring luxury with updates aimed at greater comfort and convenience.
The Tour model’s top trunk is 11 litres larger for 61 litres storage capacity. And the passenger seat’s backrest features a more relaxed angle, thicker foam and a taller profile.
The seat has a suede-like cover with an enhanced appearance. And the Gold Wing has coloured seat piping for added colour contrast.
Several audio improvements were incorporated, including upgraded, 45-watt speakers with richer audio. Optimized automatic volume-adjustment level and a standard XM radio antenna.
Android Auto™ integration joins Apple CarPlay integration. And the rear turn signals are now all red for a clean, stylish look.

Honda improved upon the motorcycle industry’s top-selling dual-sport model by upping power (via a 15 percent displacement increase).

Suspension travel and ground clearance come increased for 2021. The overall weight is reduced by 11 lbs by optimizing plate thicknesses and tubing size on multiple components.
Styling cues come over from Honda’s CRF Performance line. And both the standard. And ABS versions are ready to provide economical transportation and real dual-sport adventure.
