In developing the new GL1800, the development team thoroughly discussed from the
customer's viewpoint. With the thinking that we would like to have many people
around the world enjoy the exhilaration of motorcycles in comfort and safety:
Further emphasize the individual design with a solid presence and realize a
longed-for styling that inspires desire at first glance.
Give further satisfaction with the joy of ownership and the joy of riding
through comfort functions.
Increase the peace of mind that allows the rider to ride anywhere.
The development team decided to naturally evolve the GL1800 to make it
compatible with the next generation while meeting customer needs and the demands
of the times, and to set up a peerless benchmark in the luxury touring category
with a charm that brings joy to customers around the world.
Following the previous development keywords "King of Motorcycles," we united a
nimble design brimming with vitality and an elegant, dignified styling with an
imposing air. By evolving the audio and navigation systems to further set the
King of Motorcycles concept, flowing unbroken from predecessor models, we moved
forward with development aiming for the highest level of comfort.
