This is a cruiser unlike any other. Serious riders looking for a special ride that sets them apart from the crowd and also delivers performance that's clearly a cut above the rest need look no further. The Valkyrie has the unmistakable swagger of a true muscle bike.
The core of this remarkable custom is Honda's unique 1832cc liquid-cooled horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine that also powers the Gold Wing(r) and F6B. With an awe-inspiring power-to-weight ratio, aluminium twin-spar frame and tuned suspension the Valkyrie is all about unparalleled performance and style.
With the torque peak arriving early at only 4000 rpm and peak power hitting 1500 revs later, the Valkyrie delivers astonishing roll-on power. A compact exhaust system with slash-cut tips gives the Valkyrie a distinctive visual identity plus a deeper, booming voice of authority to accompany its amazing power. A black-out treatment like the F6B gives this powerplant a muscular hot-rod look.
The Valkyrie chassis design centres on the basic aluminium frame used in the GL1800 and F6B, and it's a great one. Paralleling Honda's twin-spar aluminium frames designed for sport bikes, this frame delivers handling traits and rider feel and feedback more like sport bike than a cruiser.
The Valkyrie goes well beyond conventional class limits to carve out a class of its own. And that makes the Valkyrie profoundly and completely Honda.
A unique horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine is fed by six high-pressure fuel injectors. The renowned five-speed gearbox, clutch and shaft final drive have all been thoroughly proven over more than a decade and millions of miles of real-world GL1800 use.
Dual full-floating 310mm rotors and new four-piston calipers up front, plus the rear 316mm disc setup deliver stellar braking power and terrific feel. With 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels, the Valkyrie also adds a touch more cornering clearance to the equation.
