2023 Honda Gold Wing Tour updates announced | More colours and tech

The seminal flagship of the range gains updates for 2023, as the Honda Gold Wing Tour gains new colours and a tyre pressure monitoring system


SINCE the mid-1970s, the Honda Gold Wing has represented the ultimate in two-wheeled continent-crossing comfort and luxury.

Completely updated in 2018, the modern Gold Wing takes the ethos of the original bike, thrusting into the modern age, with an all-new engine, chassis, styling and electronics package.

2023 Honda Gold Wing Tour updates

To keep the Gold Wing fresh for the coming year, Honda has announced a minor update across a number of Gold Wing editions, including the base-spec manual bike, and top-spec Tour DCT and airbag models.

All 2023 GL1800 Gold Wing models will now come equipped with a tyre pressure monitoring system as standard, relaying the bike's tyre pressures to the rider via the 7-inch TFT display. The move brings the Gold Wing in line with many of the big-spec tourers and adventure bikes on the market, many of which come with technology fitted as standard.

The rest of the changes for 2023 are aesthetic, with some of the bikes gaining fresh new colours for the coming year.

The 2023 Gold Wing Tour (the one with the rear seat-mounted ‘boot’) will be available in Graphite Black with brown engine cover, and Beta Silver Metallic/Iridium Gray Metallic. That’s on top of the already available Pearl Glare White colour. Those colours are only available to customers opting for either the Tour in its DCT and airbag form. The 2023 Gold Wing Tour with the manual gearbox is exclusively available in a new colour for 2023, the stealthy-looking Graphite Black colour, and finished with brown engine covers.

Honda also offer a Tour Pack of accessories to compliment the model. That pack comprises:

  • Pannier Inner Bags & Mats
  • Trunk Inner Bag, Mat, and Lid Organizer
  • Chrome Trunk Rack
  • Main Stand
  • Passenger Backrest
  • High Wind Screen
  • 12V Socket
  • Led Trunk light, Led Brake Light & Trunk Sub-Harness kit
  • Full-Size Cover
