GOLDWING, N.Y. — Honda Motor Co. plans to replace its goldwing motorcycles with the goldwing-inspired parts in a number of its North American online stores, the company said Monday.
The new Goldwing motorcycles, which are manufactured in North America by Kawasaki, are expected to arrive in North and South America on the second quarter of 2018.
The bikes will be available for purchase in Honda dealers, Honda dealerships and online at www.hondamotor.com.
The company’s motorcycle division will also be making its way online with the introduction of its new Gold Wing motorcycles on the fourth quarter of 2019.
The new Gold Wings will feature gold-colored chrome and a gold-tone paint job, a design that has been popular with Harley-Davidson customers.
The Gold Wing has been a major brand for Honda Motor Co., which sold more than 2 million Goldwing motorcycle models in the U.S. between 2014 and 2019.
In 2017, Honda sold 1.3 million of its motorcycles, the largest number in history.
The introduction of the new Goldwings comes after Honda announced plans to make a small, single-seat motorcycle available in North Carolina and the U, and a more premium Silver Wing that will come to North Carolina, the first of many new Silver Wings to come to the U., Honda said.
The Silver Wings will be priced at about $1,500 less than the Gold Wings.
