I have to admit it looks attractive. Is it US freeway trip capable though or just short haul? I used to take a YSR50 out on the highway at night 馃お Seriously build it in 400cc call it Silver Wing that'll be cool.

Maybe it's a Gold Wing for Pacific Islanders. That or 15 minute cities.馃
Seriously it seems that every vehicle grows in girth and human interactive electronics from the initial formula in order to stay "on top", that goes for sports cars & motorcycles and everyday cars like the Honda Civic.
Perhaps this is a hint of a step back reformulation of the GW. It must not be electric though!

I know, it's weird that they used the Gold Wing name though.

The gold shield on the front fairing along with the video narrator had me fooled, sorry guys.
While on the topic though a return to flat four with modern engine management such as direct injection, variable valve timing, even a turbo (perhaps as a upgraded model). Bring it back to first year in size with more available power and high fuel economy when crusing. Just bemusing

Guys the time for bigger and bigger 6 and 8 cylinder factory engines are behind us due to ever rising fuel cost and emissions constraints. I don't like it either 鈽 One of my fav classics is the CBX.
How about a big turbo/supercharged flat 4 diesel? A diesel can have huge compression and torque.

Isn't that the same one Sarah Conner had in Terminator?
