A lightweight frame featuring multi-box-section aluminum twin tubes, which incorporates the engine itself as a stressed member, is identical to the one supporting the Gold Wing GL1800, which achieves an optimal balance between rigidity and flexibility.
The frame layout helps realize flexible operability unexpected for a large-displacement bike and a pleasant ride feel to allow the rider to feel the joy of commanding a motorcycle firsthand.
The frame is blacked out with Mat Ballistic Black Metallic (NH-A86M), the same color used on the Gold Wing F6B, which works effectively to accentuate other parts of the body, to give a tight impression and to express a distinguished, dynamic taste.

To create the F6C's distinctive riding position, the handlebars are optimized for position and width, and the seat is formed for a high degree of freedom, bringing the rider a relaxing riding position.
The front suspension adopts a cartridge telescopic fork, 45 mm in diameter, while the rear suspension has been improved through revised settings.
As a result, the Gold Wing F6C delivers a comfortable ride no matter what the situation, whether on the streets or outside the city, while riders can experience solid control over the entire speed range from low to high.
In pursuit of riding comfort in a wide range of city and highway conditions, the equipment and specifications are simplified to reduce vehicle weight while offering the rider the stable handling of a cruiser.

A pair of 10-spoke aluminum die-cast wheels is employed.
Tires come in sizes of 130/60R19M/C 63H for the front and 180/56R17M/C 73H for the rear to deliver reliable handling performance and high feeling of security.
The front brake is equipped with four-piston opposed double calipers attached to a floating 310mm disc, and the rear with a three-piston caliper attached to a 316mm ventilated disc.
