The 2014 Valkyrie has returned, stripped down to the essentials and wrapped in a minimalist bodywork. Housed within its redesigned frame is its 1832cc liquid-cooled, horizontally-opposed, six-cylinder engine that pumps out an impressive torque rating — oh, and if the power plant looks familiar to you, there’s a reason. It also powers the Gold Wing and Gold Wing F6B. Featuring an impressive power-to-weight ratio, aluminum twin-spar frame, and a well-tuned suspension system, the Valkyrie exudes performance and style with modern flare. You can find everything from a LED headlight, taillight and turn signals, and multi-functional digital LCD instrumentation to available anti-lock braking system (ABS). With a curb weight of 750 pounds, the Valkyrie will be available in April in either black, Dark Red Metallic, or Blue Metallic. Check back for pricing.
“Today a motorcycling icon returns in all-new form,” said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. “The Valkyrie is back, but this isn’t a motorcycle that celebrates the past. This is a cruiser unlike any other for people who want to seize the future, who appreciate distinctive style, who want the kind of performance no cruiser can match. The Valkyrie redefines the term ‘muscle cruiser.’
“The Valkyrie is an enthusiast-based motorcycle targeted at 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. True to its iconic name, the Valkyrie targets the hearts and souls of enthusiasts in a way that only Honda can.”
