The Honda Gold Wing (or Goldwing) is a touring motorcycle designed and manufactured by Honda. It was introduced in October 1974, and went on to become a massively popular model in North America, Western Europe and Australia. Over the course of its history, it has had numerous modifications to its design. In 1975 it featured a 999 cc (61.0 cu in) flat four engine and in 2001 it featured a 1,832 cc (111.8 cu in) flat six. In 2010, the model featured an adjustable windshield, a trunk, a seatback for pillion rider, satellite navigation, an audio system, anti-lock braking, cruise control, electrically assisted reverse gear, and an optional airbag, none of which were featured when it was introduced.
Over one million Gold Wings were made at the Marysville Motorcycle Plant in Marysville, Ohio from 1979 until 2009, when motorcycle production there was halted. Honda says that before the plant closed, sufficient 2010 model year Goldwings were produced to meet demand until production resumes in Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan in 2011, when 2012 model year motorcycles will be produced using tooling transported from the old plant.
