13 year old article about moving production back to Japan. All which has happened.There are no new Hondas at the local shops and all GoldWings being delivered are presold.Yes, there is a supple chain problem.
Sorry wrong linkhttps://www.advrider.com/honda-kawasaki-suzuki-yamaha-will-axe-several-models-this-year-report/
It says they're eliminating some Gold Wing models, that wouldn't surprise me. With supply limited production, they'll likely streamline the product line to the most popular and most profitable, just a guess. Having looked at them recently, they really keep their value.
Read it again."Maybe we won’t be that affected by the decision, especially since it seems these are only specific sub-models from series, and because there is a special emphasis on the Japanese market."The wing is their cash cow in the US.
I also heard the the GoldWing Road Riders Association is closing it's doors too, I've only been a member for four decades.free picture upload
Can anyone explain why the Goldwing engine would be especially vulnerable to emission regulations? I would have assumed that engine is about the most sophisticated and “car like” of motorcycle engines, and thus the easiest to bring into compliance. Unlike, say, a large bore, air-cooled relatively crude Guzzi engine. Or some 600cc sports bike tuned to absolute max horsepower.What am I missing ?
Yep I saw that. As Bob Dylan says, “The times they are a changing”. In my opinion the GWRRA was to zeroed in on elderly riders and did very little to recruit younger (like 40 years old) riders! I have met many younger goldwing riders who wanted nothing to do with GWRRA because it was full of bingo games and other senior citizen events. I don’t know if that is why GWRRA dies but it could be. I was a member for six years but never really enjoyed it.
Fortunately for WGC, for everyone who has left, hundreds of new members has joined. Dan
I saw a new GW and it was smaller and sportier than previous. I was not quite sure of the market Honda was after. Still a touring oriented bike but not the lounge chair of the past. None of the manufacturers are reaching out to young people.
Yes this forum like any other forum, members who come and go. No one is forced to join and can leave whenever they wish. One can rest assured that WGC will continue to grow and there are plenty of knowledgeable members here. No one is irreplaceable. This thread is about Honda Gold Wings being discontinued. Therefore let’s get back to the subject the thread was intended. Dan
