The GL1800B and BD are the basic model also known as the F6B Goldwing. One is the basic model and the other is the deluxe model.

These Wings didn't have all the bells and whistles like the fully dressed GL1800.

I guess you're asking what's a DCT.
Dual Clutch Transmission which is essentially an automatic transmission. The motorcycle shifts gears for you. It's been available on the Goldwing since 2018. It's new to the Goldwing but has been around on some motorcycles and cars for a while. Here's a link to a good article explaining DCT technology. What is a DCT or Dual-Clutch Transmission?
