First Aquaintance: Here comes the Valkyrie
What do you call a motorcycle that's 38 inches across the bars and more than 8 feet long? The Valkyrie. That's what! Made in Honda's Marysville Ohio factory in the US of A, and powered by a tuned version of the highly acclaimed 1520cc, flat-six Gold Wing motor, that first came to the UK in 1988, the Valkyrie weighs in at 310kg (682lbs) and looks simply stunning. On paper, it outpoints all it's competitors by a huge margin but is it, as Honda claim, poised to take on the mantle of the "baddest bike on the boulevard"?
