I would imagine thishas already been posted, but if not....
They appear to be selling well in my neck of the woods. Dealer received four 2021 wings last week. All four have been sold. I’m not convinced this is the last itineration of the IC wing.OK, but we aren't being told how the so called new Wing is selling. is it really the last iteration? I'm not convinced it is. at the very least I'm guessing we have an EV Wing in our future.
My take away was near the end of the video where Honda announced publicly this Generation of GW will be supported for 10 years. What comes after that is likely in development now, and may not be the traditional GW as we envision it.He makes a statement right at the beginning that basically says Honda had to make a decision to redesign the goldwing after a 16 year run with the last model..... thats BS from the get go. It takes a decade to develop and test a new product like a goldwing. The decision to redesign was probably green lighted by Honda back in the mid 2000’s.
I have no doubt Honda is already working on the next generation or if not they will be in a few years.
There will be an EV Goldwing in time. The entire motorcycle industry will be going electric in the future. Bikes will lag behind autos by half a decade or more, so I wouldn't expect to see mature EV bikes until 2025 or so. I'm talking more than just Livewires and Zeros with limited range and high prices, by mature EV bikes I mean lower cost than ICE bikes with more ranges per charge vs gas tank too.With much of Europe, China and other places banning new sale of petrol vehicles, some as early as 2025, it’s just a matter of time before the world is all electric IMO. However, why a Goldwing couldn’t continue as electric is beyond my engineering thoughts.
Will gasoline, oil, filters, spark plugs, etc. related to internal combustion still be available in the future?With much of Europe, China and other places banning new sale of petrol vehicles, some as early as 2025, it’s just a matter of time before the world is all electric IMO.

I’ve read many of the countries will stop allowing registration of new petrol vehicles effectively banning them. Of course the old ones will be around for many years.

I just don't see it either... but then, I never though I'd give up my horse...I will never buy a electric motorcycle.
Well, you guys that do this are not typical riders, most owners likely doing 200 miles or less in a day. Honda's goal will likely be 300 mile range. Remember, Honda designed the new bike for "weekend" riders... that's why the bags/trunk were designed smaller, etc... infrastructure for all these electric vehicles is going to massive, and currently we can't keep the lights on in Texas....When they get the range of a electric Goldwing (or an electric car/truck/SUV) to what we often go in a day (which is often in the 800 mile range) than we would be willing to go electric. Fast recharge (like 10 minutes gets you another 200-300 miles) would be ideal.
Yep, last time I looked you can still get stuff for your horse, wagon, hot air balloon, flint lock, and sword the last time I looked... if there's a market, someone will make it.Will gasoline, oil, filters, spark plugs, etc. related to internal combustion still be available in the future?
