“The 7-inch full-colour TFT liquid crystal display screen provides infotainment-related information (for the audio and navigation systems) as well as managing the HSTC and suspension adjustment. Information is displayed in differentiated segments in a very functional order, so the rider can get all the relevant data with the minimum of eye movement.”
There is a range of Honda motorcycles and each has a different IVIS. The Honda Goldwing is the flagship motorcycle model and has an IVIS to match its premium price point from around €32,000.
The 2018 Gold Wing repositioned the arrays of analogue buttons its previous model was famous for. And with owners’ enthusiastic “farkles”, the former model could bristle with bolted on navigation, CB-radios, mobile phone fittings, speed sensor sensors, gear indicators, pillion and bike-to-bike communications, and other technology.
The Display Screen and controls
The display is not a touch screen. All features are controlled by the centrally positioned jog-dial and button array and handlebar-mounted switches and buttons. When moving, the jog-dial and some of the central buttons on the array are disabled to reduce distracting movements.
