Honda brings back its Valkyrie muscle cruiser in the 2014 Honda Valkyrie First Look article.
- American Honda is shooting for a price tag of around 17k for the ’14 Valkyrie.
- Honda continues its push in the North American motorcycle market. Once again it is offering a performance-based muscle cruiser.
- The Valkyrie sports a simple but effective LCD instrument display.
- This motorcycle infuses sportbike-derived handling with the brawn of Honda's 1832cc water-cooled Flat-Six engine.
- Comedian and motorcycle rider Alonzo Bodden (six-foot, four inches) sits on the ’14 Honda Valkyrie.
- Honda discontinued the Valkyrie in 2003. Eleven years later it returns in a new modern form.
- Sitting on the Valkyrie reveals a very slim seating position. Seat height is only 28.8 inches above the ground, which will help riders keep their feet planted firmly on the terra firma at a stop.
- The Valkyrie gets its might from an automobile-sized horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine that's used to power Honda's Gold Wing and Gold Wing F6B.
- Big Red claims the Valkyrie's mill has been tuned for even more wheel turning force than previous iterations of the engine.
- We've always loved the Porsche-like sound emitted from the exhaust and the Valkyrie builds on this mechanical melody with a pair of flash-cut tip pipes.
