The Honda F6C Valkyrie could be considered a stripped down version of Honda’s GL1500 Gold Wing. It is pretty fun to ride and it sure does turn some heads in traffic.
As long as you know a corner is coming, with a little forward planning this bike can get around a corner pretty fast. It’s also great on motorways and A roads and holds steady and reliably even for more nervous drivers.
One major criticism of the Honda F6C Valkyrie’s is that it doesn’t have a V-twin engine. The 100bhp motor is enough to get some power behind it, but bikes like the Triumph Rocket III will fly by a lot faster. Having said that, the Honda F6C Valkyrie is a well-made motorcycle, with a high end finish that feels luxurious. It also has a two person saddle and is a comfortable bike to ride, whatever the terrain.
You might not find many of these bikes round, which means that if you do find one, it might come out pretty expensive. Also, if you are looking for this bike with the hard luggage touring kit on it, this seems to be very sought after.
