Japanese motorcycle manufacturer Honda announced today the launch of the new generation 2012 Gold Wing, one of its most popular touring models, scheduled to go on sale in the US in May 2011. The company has also revealed that the European version of the GL1800 Gold Wing will go on sale in time for the 2012 season.

Highlights of the new model include a host of electronic features, such as an updated and innovative GPS navigation system that comes with user-friendly programmability, which is accessible online, for sharing favorite ride routes with other riders.

The Gold Wing now also incorporates a built-in MP3/iPod interface for a new SRS CS Auto technology surround-sound system that creates a premium listening experience. The 2012 Gold Wing also brings: upgraded styling, increased luggage capacity, greater wind and weather protection, revised suspension settings for enhanced ride compliance and unparalleled comfort for both rider and passenger.

In addition, packages for Navigation, ABS and airbag add to the Gold Wing’s reputation as the most celebrated touring machine in motorcycle history. The bike will come available in four different paint schemes: Pearl White, Candy Red, Ultra Blue Metallic, and Black.

Joining the 2012 Gold Wing is the 2012 FourTrax Foreman 4x4.

“This pair of 2012 new-model releases really illustrates the great diversity we have in styles of machinery for Honda customers,”
said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. “Both the Gold Wing and Foreman serve as the newest extensions of incredibly popular models that have built up large and loyal fan bases in their respective fields over the years. The Gold Wing now expands its reputation as the premier touring motorcycle in the world, while the Foreman is the newest iteration in a full line of machines built to work—but are also ready to lead the way to good times when a day off comes around."
