The Goldwing’s frame has been redesigned, utilizing an aluminium twin tube configuration to allow for more flexibility and weight reduction. Die-cast aluminium parts are fully used for the frame body. The riding position for both the rider and passenger have been moved toward the front and the seat rail has been shortened.
To achieve ‘excellent dynamic performance and comfort with an enhanced controllability in a wide variety of situations,’ the Goldwing now adopts a newly developed front double wishbone suspension system. The cushion functions for absorbing shock and the fork holder responsible for steering are separated from each other. The shock transmitted from the road surface to the handlebars has been reduced by about 30% compared to the previous model, resulting in a much smoother ride.
A new attaching method of the swing arm to the frame results in weight reduction of 2kg and increased stability. Adopted for the rear suspension is a manually adjustable preload system, coupled with Honda’s Pro-Link system to ensure a comfortable ride.
For the new Goldwing, electronically controlled dual combined ABS optimally distributes braking force to the front and rear wheels, in linkage with the current Riding Mode of choice, automatically adjusting the braking characteristics more in line with the riding situation, which has enhanced the sense of security in riding.
It has been three decades and more than a million sold since the GSX-R line was born. A decade and a half since the first GSX-R1000 (K1) changed the open sportsbike class forever. Now, the 6th-generation GSX-R1000 is redefining the definition of “Superbike”. It embodies the life work and professional ambition of Suzuki engineers who are extremely passionate about the GSX-R brand and its place in motorcycle history. A team who love riding and racing, enthusiasts who were determined to restore the GSX-R1000 to its rightful place as top dog. Put simply -It is the most powerful, hardest-accelerating, cleanest-running GSX-R ever built.
The top-spec GSX-R1000R is equipped with the latest SHOWA BFFⓇ(Balance Free Front) forks and SHOWA BFRCⓇ lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion lite) rear shock, bi-directional quickshifter, racing launch control, LED position lights, lightweight battery and a unique black LCD instrument panel display letting you know you're sitting aboard something truly special.
The CB500F has proved to be one of Honda’s tried-and-trusted formulas, with uncompromising lines that further elevate its technical and mechanical aspects, while a host of upgrades enhance the fun riding experience even more.
The CB500F has an entertaining twin-cylinder engine wrapped in a simple, lightweight, sporty chassis, which can be as much fun for a veteran rider as it is for those still building their riding experience.
While the CB500Fs compact dimensions and welcoming manners make it a great tool for learning, and sensible running costs are ideal for commuting, those same attributes make it a genuine pleasure for weekend outings.
The LAMS approved CB650R joins Honda’s refreshed naked motorcycle line-up, mixing café racer inspirations with an ultra-minimalist look under its “Neo Sports Café” design theme.
Honda has always thrived on exploring new boundaries in technology, design and engineering to create motorcycles that inhabit new spaces in the marketplace.
The ‘Neo Sports Café’ range is one such project, born to explore facilitating new rider preferences and needs. Steered by retro- industrial minimalism, they have stripped everything back and adapted a host of textured metal finishes and an ultra-minimalist look that results is a machine with a unique identity, a fusion of Sport Naked and bare-boned Café Racer inspirations. The CB1000R and CB300R came first and appealed to riders within their respective engine capacity ranges but one obvious segment remained for the new aesthetic to find expression: the competitive naked middleweight arena.
For 2019, the new CB650R confidently takes on this role. Using the same styling blueprint as its siblings, the CB650Rs retro-minimalism is aimed at a young demographic that wants to show off in style and enjoy the combination of exhilarating four-cylinder engine performance and light, versatile, refined chassis handling. Add to this mix of head-turning, individual looks and exciting, usable performance a spec sheet replete with high quality and premium features and the result is a naked middleweight designed for maximum pride and pleasure of ownership.
The CB1000R has a compact and aggressive layout, designed to satisfy the needs of customers who desire a motorcycle that performs aptly and features retro-minimalist styling.
Honda’s venerable CB1000R sport standard turns an important corner for 2018, with a ground-up redesign that bridges the gap between performance and bare-boned Café Racer inspirations. In a dramatic identity shift, the CB1000R receives cutting-edge Neo-Sports Café styling, an updated chassis, and an improved electronics package—all changes that bolster performance while highlighting the importance of a strong, emotional connection between rider and machine.
Honda welcomes the new 2019 CB300R - Japan Crafted 'Neo Sports Café' styling - distils all of the excitement of two wheels into a distinctively styled, lightweight form.
Representing a major stepping-stone for any young or new rider, the CB300R is very much a first ‘big’ bike after a 125cc machine, offering impressive and engaging sensations from both engine and chassis without the weight, cost and licence implications of a larger capacity motorcycle. It is the ideal machine for newer riders to develop their riding skills and enjoyment, and is a great introduction to Honda, with the brand’s engineering prowess, design philosophy and high build quality firmly on display.
Fun to ride, a joy to own and representing a bold new direction for smaller displacement machines, the CB300R has many of the premium features found on its larger capacity siblings. It also injects a fresh new style on to city streets, with its ‘Neo Sports Café’ minimalist, bare-boned attitude shared with its 1000cc stable mate.
The 2019 Monkey is a road registrable 125cc machine with modern touches such as LED lights, ABS, USD forks and digital meters. All new features packed onto a very recognisable frame, a cult classic we are very excited to offer to our customers here in Australia.
Honda’s genuinely iconic mini-bike is re-imagined for the present day, with styling that draws heavily on the original, complemented by modern, premium touches such as USD forks, twin rear shocks, LCD instruments, IMU-based ABS and full LED lighting. Wet weight is a mere 107kg.
The Monkey was so much fun and so easy to ride, it did more to sell the concept of motorcycles to a wider public than perhaps any other machine. With its chunky tyres, mini-‘ape’ style handlebars, miniscule fuel tank and big, squashy seat the Monkey look is unmistakably of its time, but – just like the affection in which it is held – also timeless.
After the modern-day success of the sharp-suited MSX125, which proved the desire for a funky, pocket-sized town run-around, it was time for the Monkey name to return, reborn and ready for life in the 21st century city.
