    Question re: 2018 Honda Goldwing

    Hello folks,

    I have a question. I want the new honda goldwing. I really just need the regular entry level manual Honda Goldwing. But I refuse to buy that rootbeer colored bike lol......ugh! I dont like it....which means that I need to move up to the Honda Goldwing DCT..... BUT....this bike can switch from automatic to manual.....but the manual is paddle shifters on the handle bar....BUT I see a shift lever down by the riders foot in the pictures and videos that I have seen. Can I shift this bike with my left foot just like a regular motorcycle? or would I have to shift it using the paddles on the handle bar?. I dont need the Tour Model but need a better color then the rootbeer color.

    Anyone know?

    It is my understanding that both red and silver can be had with the manual and without being a tour model.

    I remember an optional foot shifter for the DCT. It appears that it is an electrical foot shifter.

    They have red and silver also in the goldwing 6 speed. 3 colors to choose from in the trim you want.

    Yep, the standard 18 Goldwing is available in the red and silver (matte Gray)

    From the link Jhox provided, when you get to accessories, you'll find pricing for a DTC foot shifter. Labor is 0.6hrs to have it installed.
