Powered by the Gold Wing’s 1,832cc inline-six, the new F6C Valkyrie is 70 kilos lighter than the GL1800 full-dress tourer and, according to Honda, it “provides a riding experience that’s dynamic when required and chilled-out when not, thanks to well-controlled suspension, dual four-piston calliper front brakes and an ergonomic riding position.”

The new F6C Valkyrie's twin-spar frame is constructed from lightweight multi-box aluminium sections and, helped by the bike’s low centre of gravity (the engine is a stressed member), it’s been optimised for all-around handling prowess. The F6C’s 45mm telescopic fork, adjustable monoshock, single-sided swingarm, 19-inch (front) and 17-inch (rear) alloy wheels, standard ABS, shaft drive, 5-speed gearbox, twin 310mm brake discs at the front with 4-piston callipers, full LED lights, LCD instrumentation and 341 kilo kerb weight translate into a package that not only looks good, but also offers reasonably good riding dynamics.

Colour options for the 2014 Honda Valkyrie include metallic red and graphite black, and available range of accessories includes bits like LED fog lamps, high windscreen, rear carrier, leather saddlebags and wind deflectors etc.
