Honda has revealed the new 2021 Gold Wing in a new and improved avatar. Some of the fresh updates on the motorcycle include a redesigned pillion seat, new grey colour option called 'Deep Pearl Grey', a better audio system and a larger storage compartment at the rear.
The current 5th-gen Honda GL1800 Gold Wing was revealed for the first time back in 2018. And the new 2021 model is the latest iteration of Honda's full-sized highway tourer. Apart from the subtle updates, most of the components remain unchanged on the bike.

Not to forget, the next big change on the motorcycle includes its audio system which has been updated with 45-watt units speaker units, automatic volume-adjustment and a standard XM radio antenna. The bike was updated with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration in 2020.
