I sold my beautiful 2006 Titanium colored Wing because it was top heavy, had a very uncomfortable seat and the saddle height was too far to the ground. Even with several thousand dollars of options including an Ultimate seat it still wasn't Nomad comfortable. The F6B looks like it just solved all of those problems. Dang........now I'll have to take a look once they hit the dealers floor!

That new Wing is really nice. While I was looking on Honda's site I saw the new CB1100. I am a fan of those CB Hondas. A CB 400 was my first motorcycle. I don't know how well they will sell but I like these two more than Hondas whole silly 1300 line.

Thats nice! Not the retirees Goldwing. More attitude than you think of as a Goldwing.

Looks good.What took them so long to do it,but they need an electric windshield.It was obviously an answer from Honda for a competitor to the new BMW K1600GT.

A guy on another forum guessed that F6B stands for Flat six bagger. Sounds about right to me.

I think it is more like the Vision 8 ball than the k1600GT.

Looks like Honda is making a foray. Into the bigger market. To be sure, many Gold Wingers don't like it. It's not exactly a cruiser, but it's not a full on touring bike, either. Time will tell on this one. It looks cool to me.

It looks good, but I think they should bring back the Valkerie.

When I first saw the new Gold Wing that was my exact thought of what Honda is trying to capture here. I miss my 98 Valkyrie. This might be one to consider. GREAT looking bike!

Looks like a Gold Wing that had a baby with a Street Glide.
