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 and is now celebrating 40 years of production.
The Valkyrie has proven itself as a staple in the Goldwing family and as part of the 40th Anniversary celebrations will be released with a commemorative key. The Valkyrie‘s bold look is chiselled and purposeful, flowing organically from the solid front quarter to the strong, burly rear.
This power cruiser has been given an appropriate esteem with an engine providing 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.
