2014 Honda Gold Wing Valkyrie

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.

1832cc Engine

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.

Slash-Cut Muffler

The Valkyrie’s dual three-into-one exhausts with slash-cut mufflers look great, but they sound even better.

Customizable Seating

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.

LED Lighting

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

2014 Honda Gold Wing Valkyrie - image 534457

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.

Optional ABS

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.

2016 - 2017 Honda Gold Wing / Gold Wing F6B

2016 - 2017 Honda Gold Wing / Gold Wing F6B

Honda revealed its original GL 1000 “Gold Wing” in 1974 to compete directly with Harley-Davidson for a slice of the American tour-bike market, but it was a tourer in name only. More of a big cruiser by American standards, the fairingless, bagless Gold Wing found a toehold on U.S. shores, and Honda went to work perfecting its new platform.

The GL1100 Interstate, released in 1980, was really the first proper tour-bike version of the Gold Wing with a full fairing, windshield and baggage — features that catapulted the GL series to the top of the U.S. import-tour market. Honda carries that style all the way through to 2017 with its GL1800 Gold Wing, and the less-tourtastic, but definitely boulevard bruiser-esque, Gold Wing F6B and F6B Deluxe from 2016. The popularity of Gold Wings is undeniable, evidenced by its legions of loyal fans, so join me as I take a look at what Honda has in store for U.S. shores this year.

Honda Goldwing takes on the race track!

Honda Goldwing takes on the race track!

Check this out! A track riding instructor took his Honda Goldwing for a spin during a trackday in London, New Hampshire. The bike may not be exactly in its element and I’m sure the guy riding doesn’t feel as confident as on a CBR1000RR model, but as hard as it may be to believe, he actually manages to scrap a knee and live to tell the tale…or post in on youtube.

That’s kind of like driving a stretch limo around a race track only that much more spectacular!

1976 Honda Gold Wing GL1000 turned into café racer

1976 Honda Gold Wing GL1000 turned into café racer

You can spend a lot of money on a custom bike designed and built to suit your taste and still feel like the thing isn’t even yours? Maybe it is because you haven’t put your blood, sweat and tears into it. Take this case for instance. This 1976 Honda Gold Wing GL1000 powered by a gold four-cylinder engine was found on eBay and after being bought and given a magic touch, it has turned into a veritable café racer.

A simple look at it is enough to suspect this bike required some serious modifications, but we’ll have to say that a black and gold paint job, new tail section and fairing as well as new exhaust pipes do the trick in this case. The rest is just what makes the bike feel like belonging to a rider – all the time and energy put into it.

So, was it all worth it? Well, the thing is now Bike of the Month, March 2010 over at Naked Goldwings, so you decide.

2010 Honda Gold Wing GL18BM Airbag

The 2010 Honda Gold Wing comes more like a disappointment rather than the interesting new entry that the public had been expecting simply because the world’s ultimate touring motorcycle features no new technical innovation or design change that is characteristic to the class it proudly dominates and to it only. While remaining as reliable, comfortable and powerful as the previous generation model, the 2010 model year is a bit safer and the new color schemes still manage to make the bike stand out despite its old-fashioned look.

There are no limits when it comes to accomplishing a dream

There are no limits when it comes to accomplishing a dream

Take this example! Jon Brough is a Police Sergeant whose life took a radical turn after he was shot in the face by a murder suspect who he had followed in 2006. After two years of medical attention both from medics and his wife Wendy, the ex Sergeant is about to accomplish its dream of getting back on the saddle after he had won a safety kit.

The kit involves a driver (in this case Jon’s wife, Wendy) which is supposed to ride along the sightless person and constantly give him indications of speed, direction, etc.

But how did the 50-years-old win this awesome kit? A member of the Blue Knights International Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club, Brough was entered by members of the group in a competition for a kit for a Lehman Trike, a three-wheeled vehicle with a passenger seat. Motorcycle enthusiast and comedian Jay Leno will present the kit in a ceremony in California (so that is why we can’t yet show pictures of it, not that we have them).

But as the whole point is to ride an actual bike, the Blue Knights are raising funds for buying a 2008 Honda Gold wing and adapting the kit on it. You can also contribute by making checks payable to Blue Knights Illinois Chapter 14 and send them to BK IL 14, P.O. Box 24353, Belleville, Ill. 62223, with “Jon Brough Bike Fund” on the memo line.

It is amazing how nowadays technology and innovation can practically beat someone’s faith. A few years ago, we’ve seen a similar story only that the blind person drove a sport car up to its top speed along its father driving another car while constantly giving him indications. From that we’ve learned that such things can only be done in a straight line, especially when it comes to a motorcycle.
