Overpriced piece of cheap plastic
I looked at the 2018 and 2019 just out of curiosity while trying to find a 17 leftover. The dealer I visited near Quakertown PA did everything he could to shove one of these losers on me. It was pretty obvious that he was having problems getting rid of them. The 19s were coming out and he was stuck with 14 of these losers. Honda has perfected the ways of corporate America by using the cheapest plastic and electronic gimmicks to slap together a product no one really wants (see US automakers). They even add the same insult to injury by overcharging for it. They made a big mistake when they built the CTX1300 that ended up being a dismal failure and a 2 year bike. This Goldwing is nothing but an overpriced attempt at trying to attract the crotch rocket crowd. History will repeat itself with this overpriced slapped together crotch rocket masquerading as a decent well built touring bike. . One of the people I ride with bought a 2018 as in impulse buy. He had it 4 months, ended up hating it and was willing to me sell his $28K DCT 2018 for $20K . While it was a good deal based on the price, he was having a hard time unloading it. Says a lot about the bike now doesn't it ?
