This book covers the development of the legendary Honda Valkyrie from its inception to its latest iteration as the Gold Wing Valkyrie/F6C. Starting with a brief history of Honda and the original Valkyrie concept, the author moves on to discuss Hondas vision of the Valkyrie in the tradition of the American power cruiser. By putting a six-cylinder engine in a motorcycle, Honda created a bike that was as big as it was fast and it became one of the most distinctive motorcycles on the road.
The Valkyrie is as powerful as it is easy to handle, despite its size. This is the first book to cover the full story of a motorcycle that has become a legend in its own lifetime.
