Honda Gold Wing - Tous modèles et dérivés depuis 1975

Que de chemin parcouru depuis 1946, date à laquelle débuta la saga de Soïchiro Honda ! Après ses succès en Grands Prix dans les années 1960, après les routières 750 Four de 1969 et 500 Four de 1971, Honda offre en 1975, une véritable GT à ses clients : la Gold Wing.
Elle gagnera ses lettres de noblesse grâce à son confort, à sa maniabilité et à la simplicité de son entretien.

De la 1000 Gold Wing de 1975 à la Valkyrie Rune 1800 de 2004, sans oublier les modèles personnalisés, cette moto d'exception, qui a révolutionné le tourisme sur deux roues, figure au catalogue Honda depuis plus de 30 ans.

Ses évolutions techniques constantes, l'augmentation de sa cylindrée et son passage de quatre à six cylindres, ainsi que ses équipements, ont su attirer et fidéliser un public féru de vitesse et de confort.

À travers ce magnifique ouvrage illustré de plus de 300 photos, Pascal Szymezak vous fait partager sa passion pour la Gold Wing et vous dévoile tous ses secrets.
Une invitation au voyage pour tous les amoureux de cette prestigieuse moto.

The Honda Gold Wing - Classic 4-Cylinder Bikes

In the 1970s, Honda broke the mould again by creating a series of motorcycles that would rule the road for over forty years. The Gold Wing - Honda's premier touring motorcycle. From its super-smooth horizontally opposed engine to its faux tank and low centre of gravity, the Honda Gold Wing is a machine that combines reliability, comfort and style; it can take you hundreds of miles in one day. Through the 1980s and into the twenty first century the Gold Wing dominated the touring segment of motorcycling, originally being built for the American market and later being manufactured there.

In this book, Peter Rakestrow tells the story of the Honda Gold Wing from the original engineering concept through to 1987, when Honda built the last 4-cylinder Gold Wing. Covering detailed changes through the years, this book will appeal to buyers, restorers and collectors alike.
