Honda's Valkyrie speaks that most eloquent of cruiser languages - torque. Unlike high-revving sportbikes, Valkyrie's performance isn't measured in horsepower, but in pounds-feet. The kind that come with cubic centimetres -- 1520 of them in all -- distributed evenly amongst Valkyrie's six smooth-running cylinders. And unlike a lot of other cruisers, the Valkyrie's performance doesn't fall flat when the road gets twisty. Thanks to a generous heaping of ground clearance, stout spine frame and robust 45mm inverted fork, the Valkyrie is as adept in a corner as it is in a straight line.

Not only is the Valkyrie's six-cylinder engine unique in sound and feel. The Valkyrie is also plenty comfortable with plush suspension, a roomy seat and a host of accessories to transform the performance cruiser into a long-haul tourer. Deluxe model adds two-tone (Pearl Dark Blue/Pearl Silver) paint.

The Honda Valkyrie. Scream your individuality.
