Honda Gold Wing at Auction

History of the Honda Gold Wing

This month, as part of Day 1 of our September Monthly Auction, Compass is bringing a special Honda Gold Wing motorcycle to auction.

The GL1800 was the first new Gold Wing model made in 13 years upon its release in 2001. It would remain the most up-to-date Gold Wing until the release of the redesigned 6th-generation Gold Wing in 2018.

Honda originally introduced the Gold Wing in 1974 as an affordable, low-maintenance ride for the American market. Since then, consumers across the globe have bought over 640,000 Gold Wing bikes.

This quad bike, along with every other Honda Gold Wing made between 1980 and 2010, was manufactured in Marysville, Ohio.

Gold Wing Specs

Made in 2002, this converted 5th-generation GL18002 is a touring bike with two front and rear wheels. Weighing in at over a half-ton, this yellow Gold Wing was made to be the King of Motorcycles.

The Gold Wing has a four-stroke 1832cc fuel injection engine with 6 cylinders and 5 different speeds.
