Best Touring Bike: Honda Gold Wing Tour
The Gold Wing is the de facto king of long-distance touring. This fresh redesign is powered by a livelier version of its famous six-cylinder powerplant, is 90 pounds lighter, and comes equipped with goodies like electronically adjustable suspension, Apple CarPlay, and a wireless smart key, as well as an available seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with a reverse gear.
Best Retro Style: Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black
It’s no surprise the quickest-selling bike in Triumph’s 115-year history is the Bonneville Bobber, a nostalgic custom that departs from the brand’s typical café-style retro treatment with 1940s-era details like chunky wheels and tires and a floating single seat.
The latest Bonneville enhances the classic bobber theme with blacked-out components and discreetly integrated tech like antilock brakes, traction control, and cruise control.
