“We are proud to be celebrating 40 years of the Gold Wing. This model means so much to Honda and its customers,” said, Derek Verheyen, National Sales Manager, Motorcycle & ATV. “When Honda introduced the Gold Wing back in 1975, it revolutionized what motorcycling touring would soon become. It’s the customer’s passion for long-distance travel that has really defined the Gold Wing.”
