The Honda Gold Wing Tour Airbag Automatic DCT Sees Minor Upgrades For 2020
The top model in the Gold Wing line-up is the Gold Wing Tour Airbag Automatic DCT. For 2020, the Airbag model gets the same upgrades as the rest of the line, which includes a number of smart design revisions and ergonomic improvements.
Fog lights now come as standard equipment on all Tour models, improving visibility and boosting rider safety in extreme weather. Another nice improvement comes in the form of a revised grab handle for passengers, improving their riding comfort. Pillions will also benefit from the Gold Wing Tour Airbag Automatic DCT’s upgraded suspension which now has new settings for passenger comfort.
The last noticeable changes from 2019 include the addition of a new button for the center storage pocket, and minor upgrades to the navigation system software.
These additions might not seem like much, but the 2020 Honda Gold Wing Tour Airbag DCT already benefits from a number of class-leading innovations, such as the clever 7-Speed Automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) system which comes equipped with a 1.1 mph Walking Mode for easy slow speed maneuverability, and a very useful 10.7 mph reverse gear.
For 2020, the Gold Wing Tour Airbag Automatic DCT will be available in a Darkness Black Metallic trim with gray accents.

2020 Honda Gold Wing Tour Airbag Automatic DCT Features
The Gold Wing’s horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine is famously smooth and powerful. The latest version is an 1833cc design that’s over 13 pounds lighter than the previous generation (more than 8 pounds for the DCT versions).
Aluminum Cylinder Sleeves
High-strength aluminum cylinder sleeves help reduce weight, increase cooling efficiency, and reduce engine length. The 73mm cylinder bore and short, high-strength crankshaft also help make the engine more compact.
Unicam Cylinder Head Design
The Gold Wing’s engine uses four-valve, Unicam® cylinder head design. That improves engine performance and power, and also contributes to the engine’s weight reduction from its previous generation. The four-valve per cylinder design is also a big part of the Gold Wing’s superior fuel efficiency.
7-Speed Automatic DCT Transmission
The Gold Wing is available with a revolutionary 7-Speed Automatic DCT. The shifts in this version are faster and smoother than ever, and the overdrive seventh gear is perfect for highway cruising.
We’ve given our manual-transmission Gold Wings a slipper clutch, just like our premium sportbikes. It only makes sense—the 1833cc engine delivers tons of power, and the new chassis lets you ride this Gold Wing like a sportbike. Twisty roads? Bring ’em on!
Double-Wall Exhaust Pipes
You may think this is just for cosmetics, but on a hot day single-wall exhaust pipes can throw off a lot of heat. The Gold Wing’s twin-wall design keeps things cooler. Plus, this is the best sounding Gold Wing we’ve ever built!
Because the 2020 Gold Wing is light, you’d expect it to be fuel efficient. But its weight is just the start. Combined with the bike’s engine, intake system, and four-valve design, estimated fuel economy is up 22 percent from the previous generation.* Want to really squeeze the last mile out of every drop? Try the “Econ” ride mode setting.
*Honda’s fuel economy estimates are based on EPA exhaust emission measurement test procedures and are intended for comparison purposes only. Your actual mileage will vary depending on how you ride, how you maintain your vehicle, weather, road conditions, tire pressure, installation of accessories, cargo, rider and passenger weight, and other factors.
All Gold Wings with DCT transmissions feature “Walking Mode,” which lets you creep forward under power at a walking pace. Think how easy it will be to get in and out of tight parking spots with a fully loaded bike.
Of course the 2020 Gold Wing still features cruise control—it was one of the first touring bikes to offer the feature. And now, with our stellar throttle-by-wire system, it’s better than ever.
