Some will take one look at the Valkyrie and declare it's all about style for the outrageous, in-your-face muscular presence. There are those who will say it's all about performance citing its enormous tire shredding 1832 cc flat six motor. Still others will point to the rigid twin spar aluminum frame and beefy 45 mm inverted forks and decide it’s all about handling. There are even some that will remember that the Valkyrie is part Goldwing and proclaim that its strength lies in the long haul. Well, the Valkyrie is all these things and more – its one hell of a good motorcycle.
CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

Standard

  • The Valkyrie F6C employs the bare minimum of chassis needed to bolt a rider to its mighty motor. Constructed from lightweight multi-box aluminum sections the twin-spar frame is aided by the engine’s low centre of gravity (it also acts as a stressed member) to create superbly balanced handling at all speeds.
  • A new aluminum subframe lowers the F6C’s tail. Easy ground reach – seat height is just 734 mm – and a comfortable, carefully shaped seat that’s just 300 mm wide at the critical portion aids rider confidence at standstill.
  • The 45 mm telescopic forks are matched to a Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) monoshock that can be adjusted manually for spring preload; it works through Pro-Link on the single-sided aluminum swingarm. Spring and damping rates front and rear have been modified to suit the F6C’s weight reduction and urban cruiser intent.
  • Compared to its siblings, the F6C’s steering geometry is stretched out: rake is set at 29° 50' with 114 mm trail. Overall dimensions are 2,473 mm (L) x 942 mm (W) x 1,154 mm (H) with wheelbase of 1,707 mm.
  • For improved stability in naked form the front/rear weight bias has been adjusted to an effectively even 49.9/50.1, and the engine support beam’s rigidity balance subtly adjusted (made ‘softer’) for improved rider feel through the chassis. Wide, rubber-mounted swept-back handlebars provide leverage and control.
  • To deliver the required grip levels with neutral handling characteristics an F6C-specific 19-inch cast aluminium front wheel wears a low profile 130/60-R19 tyre, the 17-inch rear a wide 180/55-R17.
  • The brake system features twin 310 mm floating front discs and opposed four-piston calipers, plus a rear 316 mm ventilated disc/three piston caliper with 2-channel ABS for safe stopping in slippery conditions.
  • The Valkyrie F6C’s bold look is chiseled and purposeful. Flowing organically from the solid front quarter it builds on the frame and engine’s strong, burly form and the twin rear mufflers define and underscore the rear quarter. The F6C has a clean and un-cluttered custom look and boasts full LED lighting – headlight, taillight, running lights and indicators – providing great visibility plus unique light signatures. All instrumentation is housed in a stylish dash with ‘negative’ LCD display.
Engine/Drivetrain

Standard

  • The goal for the F6C’s engine was to produce a rush of acceleration at a split-second’s notice from a standing start. It also needed to provide epic, unforgettable drive from low rpm in top gear and offer up super-smooth throttle response everywhere in the rev-range.
  • Honda’s 1,832 cc horizontally opposed SOHC 12-valve six-cylinder unit has a real head start in the power delivery department. Fed by PGM-FI controlled fuel-injection with twin 40mm Keihin throttle bodies, it employs an F6C-specific 6.6-litre airbox and panel-type air filter. Bore and stroke is set at 74 mm x 71 mm, with compression ratio of 9.8:1.
  • Location of the radiators proved an interesting challenge, as they could not be front mounted. Side mounting was the natural solution with airflow managed by optimized channeling within the side cowls.
  • The five-speed gearbox (which employs 5th as very much an overdrive for relaxed cruising) delivers the engine’s torque via shaft drive. The hydraulic clutch lever’s pull ratio has been revised to offer a lighter action – for stress-free operation.
  • Over 10 exhaust systems were prototyped during development, with countless internal structures and end-caps. The engineers were searching for a perfectly balanced exhaust note with dual personality – a throaty growl at low-rpm and high-pitched crescendo at maximum rpm. In the end they were very satisfied with their efforts, and the result. The left hand muffler has a slightly larger 3.8-litre volume, the right 3.3-litre.
  • The F6C engine is Euro III compliant. For improved environmental performance in addition to the air injection system reducing the oxidation reaction of unburned gases, the Honda Evolution Catalysing System 3 (HECS3) employs a three-way catalytic process and ensures greatly reduced nitrogen oxide, hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide output levels.
