Honda Goldwing to Have Radar Adaptive Cruise Control

The Gold Wind will join a few other models that already sport this feature.

Honda is planning to soon fit its Gold Wing with radar adaptive cruise control, according to “Motorrad Online.”

The German motorcycling magazine recently shared patent photos of the upcoming Gold Wing’s cruise control, which seem to again reinforce the ever-thinning technological line between cars and motorcycles. While the motorcycle community has many purists, the addition of cruise control to larger touring bikes will undoubtably be a great asset to riders traversing long distances on the freeway.

Ducati, KTM and other manufacturers have already released models equipped with radar-powered adaptive cruise control, including Kawasaki’s upcoming Ninja H2 SX that will be equipped with a front and rear camera system setup. The Gold Wing will follow suit, also incorporating a rear-mounted radar system for collision warning and blind spot detection. This does bring into question how Honda will house the rear camera on the motorcycle and how the instrument cluster will be affected — the patent photos suggest that Honda may be working on a heads-up display for the upcoming model.

As for the front racing cruise control radar, the Gold Wing’s large nose will allow for Honda to incorporate it into the design seamlessly. Other motorcycles like the Multistrada V4 have struggled with this design aspect, leading to an awkward-looking nose area.

These additions to the 2023 Goldwing will not only make the motorcycle more technologically advanced but allow for an ever safer and easier ride.
