Even more NEW 2018 Honda GoldWing Patents Released = Changes on the Way!

– New 2018 Motorcycle News! | New Gold Wing Changes / Upgrades on the Horizon? Patent Documents shed more light… –

We had a lot of rumors floating around about possible changes to the 2017 Gold Wing. Well, for that matter we’ve had rumors floating around for the last decade with hopes and dreams being crushed year after year when Honda would announce that they were going to offer new color options etc. Back in 2011 when Honda didn’t manufacturer a 2011 Gold Wing, that really had the wheels turning on the rumor mills and rightfully so as typically if a manufacturer is going to skip a production year on their “flagship” motorcycle then they have something in the works. That “something in the works” turned out to be them moving production from here in Ohio across the pond to Japan. It did bring a couple of slight changes though but nothing major and I won’t bore you with the nitty-gritty details on that as I’m sure most of you reading this are huge Gold Wing fanatics and probably know what I’m referring to. The rumors mentioned above floating around for an all-new 2017 GoldWing have already been put to rest as the 17′ Wing has already been announced and will be on dealers floors soon or already by now depending on when you’re reading this article.

Enough of the rambling though… Let’s get to why you’re here and check out the new patent documents below that Honda just filed over the last couple of weeks! Could this be another glimpse at what will be the 2018 Gold Wing?

Are you behind on my previous 2018 GoldWing Patent Document posts with all kinds of goodies like DCT Automatic Transmissions etc? Here’s a link for you to check out those past blog posts:


These images are pulled from (2) separate patent filings for what we can only hope and assume to be the 2018 Gold Wing… You’ll find some showcasing a new adjustable windshield for the Gold Wing as well as some that showcase the front suspension yet again. What do I mean by “yet again” on the front suspension? This is now the 3rd separate patent filing that I have stumbled across with each more in detail regarding the plans they just may have in store for the next generation redesign on the Gold Wing which we will hopefully see about this time next year in 2017 but as a 2018 year model.

Mix all of this up with the latest DCT Automatic Transmission patents filed for the hopefully soon-to-be 2018 Gold Wing and things should get interesting over the next 6-12 months… Haven’t checked out the DCT Automatic Transmission controls on the GoldWing? You’re missing out and need to follow the link above to my past patent document reviews covering the changes Honda is working on.

As always…

I’m curious on what you guys are thinking! Comment below after looking into your crystal ball and tell me what you think Honda has in store for the 2018 Gold Wing. Do you think we’re still a long ways out from seeing Honda tweak the Wing and we won’t see any huge changes until the 2019 GoldWing is released? What changes do YOU think the Gold Wing needs to remain the ultimate Touring Motorcycle? The competition is getting stacked year after year in this market segment so Honda can’t sit around too much longer without upgrading the Wing if they want to keep these ad slogan “Follow the Leader”…

    I think Honda was going to come out with the new version in 2017 but the earthquake over there set them back about 6-9 months.

    I sure hope that I am wrong, but looking at the potential buyers of a new goldwing does not give confidence that money will be spent on remodelling. The aversge GW driver gets about a year older every year, so a redesign needs to drag in new younger customers. The rest of us, as much as we adhore the idea, will eventually buy a new instance of the same old GL1800, so if I was product manager at Honda I would not necessarily want to present the business case for spending $nnnM on a market that ultimate would buy even if $0 is spent to retain it.

    I got my first wing in 1977 a used 1975. I’ve had several wings since then with the last being 2002, burned up in grass fire on my farm. I have always wondered why the civic gets better mpg than the wing with the same size motor and twice the weight. Have wondered why wing production moved back too japan when most wings are sold in the states I think. I’ve owned 4 wings and never had Honda ask me what I wanted in the wing. They throw these flashy concepts at us but never address concerns brought up at wingding. I’d like to get better fuel and better than 8000 miles per set of tires. How about another gear in the tranny because they have a low redline when on the highway. think the price would go down when it’s the same basic bike for so many years,

    With that front suspension is looking at lot more like new BMW Bagger 1600 series right down to the Honda badge placement and the limited fairing plastic showing off much more engine. Without seeing in real life it appears to be a Goldwing on a diet… not the huge bulk of plastic in the past, maybe has a lower seat… same as F6B 26.5 inch and may have even lost some weight. I like every thing I see… if priced right should out sell HD’s massive underpowered touring bikes. I think Honda has a winner. Bout time they got rid of dinosaur front tube forks… this baby should track like it’s on rails… no over or understeer. One hell of a beautiful motorcycle.
