The 2014 Honda Gold Wing Valkyrie is a modern cruiser that has all it needs to be considered one of the best models in its class.
Its sporty fenders, the unique fuel tank design, the fat exhaust pipes and the stylish fairing are all working together to form a very special visual effect. Perhaps it goes without saying that once on board, you’ll get a fairly relaxed riding position and great ergonomics.
The motorcycle is propelled by an 1832cc, liquid-cooled, horizontally opposed six-cylinder, SOHC engine with PGM-FI. The engine transfers its power to the rear wheel through a five speed transmission and is fueled by a 6.1 gallons fuel tank.
To enhance the motorcycle’s performances, the Valkyrie’s engine is mounted low into the aluminum twin-spar frame, thus keeping the center of gravity to as low as possible.

The All-New Honda Gold Wing Valkyrie: Legendary Power Groundbreaking Style
Here’s the formula: Take Honda’s legendary 1832cc flat six and build it into the ultimate cruiser—powerful, awe-inspiring and like no other. Now add in great handling and iconic style, and you’ll see why it’s the cruiser that only Honda could build.
There’s no denying it—the Valkyrie is all about its engine. And with an engine this big, you’ve got smooth power everywhere. Stoplight-to-stoplight acceleration? Passing power? Loads of torque? The Valkyrie has it all and then some.
The Valkyrie’s dual three-into-one exhausts with slash-cut mufflers look great, but they sound even better.
The Valkyrie’s two-piece seat allows you to customize your look if you’re riding solo. The stylish tail section incorporates removable aluminum passenger grabrails for a streamlined look.
Low Center of Gravity
How low can you go? The Valkyrie’s engine is mounted low into its aluminum twin-spar frame, which makes this a dream machine to ride; its low seat height makes it one of our most comfortable bikes, too.
The LED headlight, taillight and turn signals give the Valkyrie a modern, super-clean look and provide fantastic illumination as well. Style and function—that’s what the Valkyrie is all about.
Pro Arm Single-Sided Swingarm
A high-performance motorcycle like this one requires a technologically advanced suspension. The Valkyrie features a rear Pro Arm single-side swingarm with an adjustable Pro-Link single shock.
10-Spoke Cast-Aluminum Wheels
Strong, lightweight (thanks to the hollow-spoke design) and super stylish, the Valkyrie’s wheels make a big statement and are an integral part of this bike’s great handling.
Designed to help you make safe stops in compromised conditions, Honda’s proven Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) is a perfect addition to your bike when you’re riding in a less-than-perfect world.
