I thought it was just a concept bike they produced.

Can you actually order one ? Not that I have either the urge or money to do so.

I like the thing. I have been asking for a simpler Goldwing for years. This is not exactly what I had in mind, but I do like cruisers, and have owned many. I would still prefer the Valkyrie, but that isn't going to happen. But at least it is not another Japanese v-twin. I could be happy riding one of these. MSRP is $20K, will be interesting to see what they actually sell for.

I am definitely NOT a fan of the new goldwing model. its a touring bike with the touring amenities taken off.

Ride comfortably or Stay Home

Thumbs up

I think they nailed it. they have to compete and their biggest competition is the Harley Road Glide which is becoming Harley's most popular and as close to a sport touring bike that Harley has.
It looks like it could be a very nice 1 up tourer. time will tell. hopefully they took off the very out dated CB controls

RIDE\' em IF YOU GOT\' em
