From Honda, the first model of the Goldwing series was the GL 1000 and created furore in the year 1975: a motorcycle with one thousand cubic centimetre cubic capacity, a water cooled four cylinder boxer engine, 82 BHP (61 kW) and a cardan shaft drive (a component for transmitting torque and rotation) has never existed before.
The petrol tank of the GL 1000 is a dummy, which in fact houses electricity and a glove compartment - the actual petrol tank is positioned in front of the rear wheel. In continuous further variations and face lifts, the cubic capacity was increased. Later configuration variations were added, such as windscreen, complete panelling and standard suitcases up to the luxurious touring model Aspencade.
After the end of the four cylinder series a follow up model went on sale up from 1988 on, namely the six cylinder boxer Honda GL 1500.
