Honda Receives Awards

Honda racked up a few titles at the annual Ehlert Powersports Media Awards banquet in Orange, CA on Thursday.

Honda's GL1800 Gold Wing received Rider magazine's 2001 Motorcycle of the Year Award. Mark Tuttle, Senior Editor at Rider, noted that the new Gold Wing redefined motorcycle touring by providing the performance of a sport touring motorcycle with the comfort expected of a luxury tourer.

Other awards were given to the company....

Honda's early-release 2002 VTX received Cruising Rider magazine's award for the 2001 Cruiser of the Year. Cruising Rider's Josh Placaexplained that the VTX received the award because the world's largest production cruiser is not only the most powerful, it is also stylish and comfortable. The VTX arrives at Honda dealers at the end of March.

An announcement by ATV Magazine revealed that the 2001 Foreman Fourtrax Rubicon had been selected as the 2001 ATV of the Year.

"This machine is clearly the most innovative, the most appealing, and we believe it will prove to be the most influential ATV of this season's new crop," said editor ATV Magazine's Glenn Hansen.
