Honda Announces New 2013 Bikes Including Gold Wing F6B Bagger, 500cc Middleweights

By November 12, 2012

Follow me on:

2013 Honda Gold Wing F6B

Seems the folks at Honda have been working overtime to expand their 2013 Motorcycle Lineup; in addition to the just-announced CB1100, they've also introduced a bagger variant of the venerable Gold Wing touring bike dubbed the F6B-- bet you didn't see that one coming! The F6B is priced at $19,999, or $20,999 in Deluxe trim, and includes premium audio, blacked-out components, and a gunfighter-style seat.

The updated lineup also includes a string of 500cc middleweights including the fully-faired CBR500R, the naked CB500F, and the adventure-focused CB500X (seen here, which is a sort of NC700X mini-me.)

You can read more about the CB1100 in my review and see the entire 2013 Honda lineup in this Buyer's Guide; stay tuned for more Honda reviews in the coming weeks.

No I didn’t see that coming. Had to look twice to figure out what it was. It may have limited appeal as did the Valkyrie due to the mid-mounted pegs / riding position.

The CB1100 is really beautiful, in a retro kind of way; but then so was the 2000-2001 Kawasaki W650, now reincarnated into the 2012 W800. The W650 never sold well in the U. S. because you guys want enormous bikes with lots and lots of bling… I hope the CB1100 succeeds…

WELL, it looks like the Valk. is back under another name. It is a hell of lot cheaper than a Goldwing and will get (maybe) younger riders to ride a off broadway Goldwing. Maybe this will shock the old codgers on their Goldwings. What will the GWRRA do now–Let young meat in to battle the old get a life Goldwingers WHAT, WHAT. I like the new bike–YEA HONDA.
