Next-gen Honda Goldwing Touring motorcycle might use dual cameras at the front. The telescopic cameras will help in the anti-collision system.
Honda Goldwing is rumoured to get a dual-camera anti-collision safety system in its next generation. Patented sketches reveal the placement of two cameras on the front apron, just besides the handle.
The dual cameras are used to activate Adaptive Driving Assistance Systems. The cameras create a 3D image and during an emergency, the system helps in slowing down the motorcycle to avoid an accident.
The vehicle will detect road blocks, obstacles, vehicle lane change or a pedestrian crossing the path. The system will also flash warning lights so as to make the driver alert.
This technology comes in the international-spec Honda Civic and CR-V. Both the models come with safety features such as lane position, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, pedestrian crossing and speed limiting.
Honda Goldwing already uses Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for its braking purposes, which include dual-channel ABS. The complete package will be the most advanced safety feature onboard.
This technology will be very useful on long highways or lesser traffic areas. In bumper-to-bumper traffic, the handling will become very difficult and irritating as well
Honda Goldwing gets a 6-cylinder 1833cc engine that is capable of producing 125 BHP at 5500 RPM and 170 Nm of peak torque. The regular variant gets a 6-speed gearbox, while the Tour variant gets a 7-speed DCT (Automatic) gearbox.
Features onboard include touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Reverse Gear, Cruise control, heated seats, dedicated audio system, USB flash drive port and much more.
Priced at Rs 27.79 Lakhs (ex-showroom), it is the most premium offering from Honda. It competes with the likes of Harley Davidson and Indian Motorcycles tourers.
