Introduction

NEW CUSTOM CRUISER

The original – and naked – 1975 GL1000 Goldwing set the benchmark for the breed, with its horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine and cruising form.

Quickly becoming the definitive touring motorcycle thanks to a turbine-smooth power delivery and mile-munching ability, Honda's Goldwing is known by many as the world's greatest touring motorcycle. Dynamic when required and chilled-out when not, Honda's Valkyrie has a show stopping presence. Sharing the engine and chassis with the Honda Goldwing, the new Valkyrie is a new breed of custom cruiser.

The Valkyrie's bold look is chiselled and purposeful, flowing organically from the solid front quarter to the strong, burly rear. Honda's Valkyrie is available in Graphite Black.

UNFORGETTABLE PERFORMANCE

  • To give Honda's new power cruiser appropriate esteem, the engine needed to provide a rush of acceleration at a split-second's notice along with unforgettable drive from low rpm in top gear and super-smooth throttle response everywhere in the rev-range.
  • The Valkyrie utilises Honda's legendary 1,800cc, horizontally opposed SOHC, two-valve, six-cylinder engine which is fed by PGM-FI controlled fuel-injection with twin 40mm Keihin throttle bodies and a Valkyrie-specific 6.6-litre airbox and panel-type air filter.
  • The five-speed gearbox, which employs 5th as very much an overdrive for relaxed cruising, delivers the engine's torque via shaft drive. The hydraulic clutch lever's pull ratio has been revised to offer a lighter action for stress-free operation.

CHASSIS AND SUSPENSION

Employing the bare minimum of chassis needed to house the Valkyrie's mighty engine, the chassis is constructed from lightweight multi-box aluminium sections. The twin-spar frame is aided by the engine's low centre of gravity to create superbly balanced handling at all speeds. A new aluminium subframe lowers the Valkyrie's rear and offers easy ground reach from the comfortable, carefully shaped seat thus enhancing rider confidence at standstill.

The Honda Multi-Action System [HMAS] monoshock with manually adjusted spring preload works through a Pro-Link on the single-sided aluminium swingarm. Spring and damping rates front and rear have been modified to suit the Valkyrie's weight reduction and urban cruiser intent.
