Apple CarPlay is moving beyond the car and into the motorcycle.
Honda this week announced its new 2018 Gold Wing, the first bike to come equipped with Apple’s infotainment system.
It will arrive next February and start at $23,500.
As noted by CNET’s Road Show blog, CarPlay’s implementation on the Gold Wing is a bit different from what it looks like on a four-wheeled automobile.

The bike includes a 7-inch LCD display that shows the usual iOS-style interface, but it’s not touch-enabled.
Instead, you can use a four-way joystick on the left grip or a rotary controller on the tank to get around.

The latter could be tricky to manage when you’re actually on the move, but from there, you can access the usual Apple Maps, personal music libraries, iMessages, and the like.
