Goldwing Tour Premium

For 2018, the engine offers a smooth and powerful new-generation F6 power unit. A re-designed unique liquid-cooled, longitudinal, 4-stroke, horizontally opposed 6-cylinder (F6) 1800cc engine that is substantially lighter and more compact. The pursuit for higher combustion efficiency and the adoption of the idling stop system among other measures, have also achieved an increase in fuel efficiency. Honda’s original DCT (Dual-Clutch Transmission) is used for the transmission, with the third-generation 7-speed DCT installed and a new type of creeping-speed forward and backward movement functions has been added to further enhance ease of use.

The newly designed engine utilizes Unicam technology with a compact 4-valve cylinder head resulting in a lightweight package and as a first for the Goldwing, a Throttle-By-Wire (TBW) system has been adopted. The selectable Riding Mode system better accommodates different riding conditions and the new position of the engine allows for extra space for the rider’s feet. Other wide-ranging measures that helped achieve weight reduction include the use of aluminium cylinder sleeves, a change made in the camshaft material and a revision of the cooling water routes.

A new third-generation 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) has been developed and utilizes a reverse chain to assist with the reverse function, adding to the units’ overall compactness and lightweight feel. The Walking Modes, forward and backward movement functions are operable with a hand switch. Other changes include a new exhaust system, ISG (Integrated Starter Generator system), Throttle-By-Wire (TBW) system, selectable Riding Modes and torque control.
