Honda Goldwing F6B to hit the UK

By popular demand, apparently...

HONDA has announced that their new 'Bagger' Goldwing will make it to UK shores after all. 

The F6B was originally not slated for UK release, but this decision has been reversed 'due to projected customer demand'.

We told you about the new Goldwing late last year, but further details are now avaliable. 

The bike, described as 'part custom, part cruiser', features a twin-spar aluminium frame with 45mm anti-dive telescopic forks and Pro-Link rear suspension. Honda appears to be attempting to make the Goldwing a little more versatile, with the press release citing preparedness for the 'urban environment', as well as the open road. The F6B is 28kg lighter than Gold Wing GL1800 – but it will still weigh 385kg.

A limited number will be brought to the UK, which must be ordered in advance from selected dealers.

The F6B is due on sale in the UK in July 2013, and will be priced at £19,199 OTR.
