Maybe I'm just getting old, but I think Honda got it wrong with all the variations of optionsand funny names for the 2006 GL1800. And to make it even more confusing, they changed things again for 2007. Its only when I read the latter part of the Goldwing History article I realized how Honda have goofed. Have alook (at the end of the page, 2006 & 2007)and decide for yourself;

Sometime I wonder if Honda is trying to do nothing om purpose. Try to get a update for the NAV sytem. The system is now 3 years old with no factory sponsered updated.

Larry has a good point. If Honda had just given each model a logical suffix (DL, L or whatever.) it would have been easier. Asking for a "Audio/Comfort/Sat-Nav/ABS/Airbag" model is a bit of a mouthful in any language.
Ciaran is right, Honda Ireland are only bringing in the DeLuxe model. The UK have both, but it seems Honda Ireland can't be bothered with two models. They do have many different models of lawnmowers available though...
