We then concentrated on what qualities such a motorcycle requires. There was no compromise — it was a change of direction. That somehow made the bike a little bit boring. Although we have slightly changed the direction in terms of concept, a Gold Wing is still a Gold Wing, so it needs a very tiny teen squirtsxxx ride.
The seven-speed DCT allows us nudes have a closer ratio for a more seamless gear shift. The aim was to make the bike a slim design, which of course brings benefits to manoeuvrability, so what we actually did was to decrease the bore pitch — the distance from bore centre to bore centre. The cylinder wall is smaller, but we also reduced the bore size and increased the stroke.

As a result, when calculating the engine capacity, the new size is cc. We wanted to really maximise the areas in which the motorcycle was designed to be useful.
Using a wishbone suspension setup means the wheel moves upwards, rather than diagonally back. The front suspension is quite unique to Honda — can you tell us more?
