Not long after its inception in the mid-1970s, the Honda GoldWing settled into a certain style for which it was known for more than 30 years. In the 1990s, the Valkyrie debuted to offer Gold Wing enthusiasts the power and smooth-as-glass performance of the flat-six GW engine, in a beefy cruiser style. Nearly two decades later, Honda debuted the 2013 Gold Wing F6B, a paradoxically minimalist take on the GoldWing which traded much of the bike’s luxury for more than 60 pounds weight loss, featured slim new farings, and a price point below its luxmax big brother. Unofficially known as the “Flat-Six Bagger,” the 2013 Honda Gold Wing F6B has been one of the maker’s most popular new models in years.
