I have no idea how...but I can't stop thinking I'd love to see a new Goldwing in 2000cc. And while I'm at it...8 cylinders. Whether it be opposed 8, or even a tiny V8...imagine the fun that could be had with the exhaust note. I think it could be done and made to work out very well. That's my vision anyway. Fire away!

Aw c'mon, Neil. Wouldn't you rather see your 1200 redone as an ultra high-tec tourer that pumped out about 125 hp (7 more than the current 1800)? The technology to upgrade the engine & transmission is out there already at weights that still fit the requirements for a bike. Add all the high-tec gizmos other tourers have long since added such as on-the-go suspension and power adjustments. Factory Bluetooth and all the other comforts Wingers have to add aftermarket now. And how about a system that allows the driver to adjust air-flow on the go? Deflect hot air in stop & go traffic and then redivert when you hit the open road. All without taking your hands off the handlebars. And it all comes in at a power-to-weight ratio that leaves the 1800 in the dust while leaving you with the sensation that you're just floating along on a luxurious sofa.
Cost would also be no more than what the 1800 sells for now.

I think Honda need to start looking at alternative power for Goldwings. They can't keep increasing the engine size and turning it into a gas guzzler.

I realize this thread has some age to it since the last post and I may be speaking before I know what I'm talking about since I know nothing about the 1800's but how about making the aircleaner a little easier to get to. A basic maint. item that you need access to on a semi regular basis and on the 99 wing, its a real bear to change it.

If your not sure, just WING it.

How far the Wing has come.

I remember when the 1200 came out, many said how we had seen the extent of the Goldwing, and there is no way it would get any bigger.....

and then the 15......

and then the 18 .......



and then...............

whatever it is going to be, its gonna be NICE !

Anybody else agree with me ?

I like the bigger cc's because of the torque that comes with them.
