About Honda Valkyrie
As you come down the highway on your Honda Valkyrie, it is hard to know whether you are seen or heard first. You might be seen first because this is not just a big motorcycle, it is a huge motorcycle reaching 8 feet long, weighing almost 700 pounds, and is equipped with a whopping 5 gallon gas tank. The impressive engine spills out of the frame, like the arms of a bodybuilder bulging out of a T-shirt that is too small. Alternatively, you might be heard first because of the 1,520cc flat six engine rumbles as a cruiser should with its powerful 100 bhp and loads of torque (95 lb ft). The Honda Valkyrie, though, is not just about a big engine in a big motorcycle, it also performs well too. The bike has good ground clearance and is easy to handle. You can ride this motorcycle all day, particularly if you fit a Honda Valkyrie windshield to the front for a bit of added protection. It was built by Honda from 1996 until 2003, so there are plenty of used examples from the vast inventory available on eBay. Consider customizing your bike with Honda Valkyrie parts that are also found in the inventory. In 2014 Honda released the Gold Wing Valkyrie to revive the Valkyrie name, but the original remains a big, burly and comfortable cruiser.
