With the new redesigned 2014 Valkyrie, Honda is back with a bite.
The design itself looks like a sort of angry beast, from its futuristic LED headlight to the angular touches throughout. The 2014 Honda Valkyrie sports an impressive 104 horses and 110 pound-feet of torque, yet all this power only has to move a 750 pound bike, so you can expect some major get up and go from the 1832cc liquid cooled Flat Six engine.
The new Valk’s seat is a mere 28.8 inches off the ground, so riders will definitely be able to feel the road in a good way. A sleek LCD panel display feels strangely futuristic, albeit simple and easy to read. While stopping was no issue with the Gold Wing, the Honda Valkyrie takes it to the next level with independent front and rear brakes and optional ABS.
Come April of 2014, you will be able to pick up the Valkyrie in black, blue metallic, or dark red metallic for around $17,000; well within the reach of many of its admirers, and the three year unlimited fender to fender warranty is icing on the cake. It’s good to see Big Red back in the big muscle cruiser business again.
