And that fire we talk about is the  massive 1833cc, liquid-cooled engine that makes an astonishing 126hp and produces 170Nm of torque. A shaft drive system is used to send juice to the rear wheel and it gets a bunch of assist features along with Tour, Sport, Econ and Rain modes. If we had to tour Persia on a motorbike, or erm… Delhi, we would choose this lounger on wheels. The automatic ‘Tour’ variant comes with a 7-speed DCT and also features an airbag for safety. With a die-cast aluminium frame and electronically adjustable suspension the Goldwing is a sight to behold. All that power and fancy engineering is fine, but what’s in it to stop you dozing off while hitting triple digit speeds? The answer to that is a full-blown 5.1 surround sound system. Ha! You wish. However it does get a fancy 7in TFT display that supports Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto backed by a cool 45W sound system. In addition to this, there are dual USB Type-C charging ports available so that the party never stops. Available at a starting price of ₹37.2 lakhs, the 2021 Goldwing is worth one of your kidneys or even both.
