In 2009, the Honda Gold Wing was released in four separate models, each with the goal of meeting the various needs of the Honda riding community. The four models—Gold Wing Audio/Comfort, Gold Wing Audio/Comfort/Navi/XM, 2009 Honda Gold Wing Audio/Comfort/Navi/XM/ABS, and 2009 Honda Gold Wing Airbag—all have unique specifications, but each gives the driver the ultimate riding experience once it hits the road.
The 2009 Honda Gold Wing has a sleek, sport touring aluminum frame and gets its name from its gold hue, although the bike does come in a number of different colors, as well. The Gold Wing is a powerfully built motorcycle with an 895-pound dry weight and 29.1-inch seat height, and with a reverse gear, it is easier to maneuver than most big bikes. With passenger seating available, a companion can enjoy hitting the open road on The Gold Wing, seated right beside the driver.
Along with its imposing size, the 2009 Honda Gold Wing also comes equipped with a powerful engine, making it one of the most imposing bikes on the road. This motorcycle has a horizontally opposed, fuel-injected, four-stroke engine, which allows 118 bhp of horsepower and 125 pounds of torque. A five-speed manual transmission helps provide complete control over the bike for the driver, and a 6.6-gallon fuel capacity means that stopping for gasoline is rarely an issue.
In addition to its unique engine specifications, the bike also comes with top-of-the-line suspension and steering, allowing the rider to feel safe, regardless of riding conditions. The 2009 Gold Wing is equipped with a telescopic front end suspension and aluminum single-sided swing arm back end suspension, while dual-disc front end brakes and rear end disc brakes allow for quick and safe stops, even at top cruising speeds.
Furthermore, a pair of aluminum wheels allow for easy maneuverability for all drivers of the 2009 Honda Gold Wing. The bike’s back end wheel is also slightly larger in width (five inches) than the front wheel (3.5 inches), and it’s the same with the back (180/60 R16) and front tires (130/70 R18). Thanks to these specifications, the Gold Wing has a smooth and balanced ride, which is especially impressive for a bike its size.
Finally, because the 2009 Gold Wing comes in four different styles, it offers something a little different for each and every rider interested in making the purchase. For starters, all models come equipped with a handful of standard features, including a fuel level gauge, speedometer, tachometer, and temperature warning gauge, as well as a standard exterior guard and floor boards, too. All four models are also equipped with heated hand grips, giving the bike a little comfort to go with its class.
However, what really separates the 2009 Honda Gold Wing from all the others on the road is the unique specifications, which meet each and every rider’s individual needs. For example, the Audio/Comfort/Navi/XM and Audio/Comfort/Navi/XM/ABS models both come with XM radio and standard navigation (the Airbag comes with navigation as well), while the Audio/Comfort/Navi/XM/ABS also comes with a revolutionary anti-lock brake system.
