High resolution images for your eyes and your wall

Yesterday, Honda launched what we believe it to be the finest touring machine to have ever come from the east, the 2018 Honda Gold Wing.

Packed with all kinds of gizmos and wizardry, the 2018 model is here to slay the competition left, right, and centre and leave them bruised for a long time to come. The 124 hp "couch on wheels" gets many segment firsts including Apple Car Play, a 7-speed DCT transmission with reverse and crawler gears, all round LED-treatment and more.

The most significant change on the 2018 Gold Wing is the intelligent suspension system featuring a semi-active unit that has a pair of wishbone attached to a cast aluminum girder and a central spring strut. This makes the ride 30% smoother and 40% nimbler than before.

All for a starting MSRP of just $23,500. Here are high-resolution images of the ultimate continent shrinker:
