50th Anniversary Goldwing

Post by bmcgo78415 »



Any rumors on the 50th Anniversary Goldwing for 2025? I have a 2000 GL 1500 25the anniversary edition that I’ll be trading for the 50th anniversary edition. When do new Goldwing normally release for sale?

It has been getting later the last few years. Launch in October and at the dealers late November for 2024.

I'd keep the 2000 Wing myself.
Far less electronics. Far more reliable.

Not sure I would call a 25-year-old motorcycle reliable, without some extensive work on it.

My 30 year old 'Wing (purchased new) with 208,000 miles on it is stone reliable. I am planning a cross country trip on it this summer. Original clutch; maintenance items only.

My 25 year old Wing has 120,000 miles.
I'd have no worries at all about taking on a long cross country trip.
In fact, I just may do that fairly soon, from home here in New Jersey out to Nevada to see my brother.

Whilst I'd love a 6th Gen Wing, I wouldn't trade my 2000 SE for one: I'd need to keep both.

As someone who has benefited from his extensive knowledge of Gold Wings (and how to repair them) I'd have to say Rambozo does "know Gold Wings" better than most.


That's not just a motorcycle. It's a Gold Wing.
