2018 Honda Gold Wing is the first bike with CarPlay


Unveiled yesterday at Tokyo Motor Show, Honda’s new Gold Wing for 2018 is the first motorcycle that comes fully-equipped with CarPlay.

The new 2018 Honda Gold Wing features a 7-inch LCD in the dashboard, much like a standard in-car dashboard, to which you can connect an Apple iPhone to the bike using a USB input that’s tucked away in the storage hold. You are required to connect a Bluetooth headset, and then you can either use voice activation, the four-way controller on the left grip or a central, rotary controller down on the tank.

What do you reckon – essential tech for a modern motorcycle, or a bit of a distraction?

Honda’s new Gold Wing is 90lbs lighter than the outgoing model, features an 1800cc engine with double-wishbone front suspension. For more information, check out its specifications in the article below.
