We're all familiar with Honda's current-gen Gold Wing, the venerable six-cylinder whose latest version has been around since 2001. Beyond its role as one of the few quintessential touring bikes (along with gems like the BMW K1600), the 'Wing has earned a reputation for being the paradigm of two-wheeled comfort.
But since it's taken Honda longer than expected to update their GL in order to stay relevant against such foes like the cutting edge K1600, Team Red has chosen instead to create a bagger-focused spinoff, dubbed the F6B.
