Default Look Out Lloyd

Honda's now producing bikes with "earth stopping" power. Now who's got the best dyno chart, huh?

With the lines of this thing, probaby better to paint it all black. Accentuating them with contrasting colors gives me a headache.

Honda loves their plastic don't they? I was almost excited till I saw it. I thought it was going to unfold into a civic.

Just what they need, another power cruiser when they are seriously lacking with their mid size bikes. Hell of a motor but fire the design team. It looks like Suzuki's version of the naked Hyabusa (B-King) that was discontinued.

got that right. That six cylinder engine is just FUGLY. seems like they could do something with their design team. like bury them neck deep in the sand and let the executives practice their golf swing or something.

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker

Well, being a Victory owner, I'm hesitant to cast stones against a bike that is obviously a far cry from conventional aesthetics. Isn't that what drew many of us to Vic to begin with?

But where Victory broke the mold with something like the Vision to build a radical new design that was also the pinnacle of function, Honda seems to want to just shock the crap out of us all.

I liked the original Valkyries (never had the opportunity to ride one, but I thought they were nice to look at), and I though the Rune was pretty sweet. This guy seems to be keeping with Honda's new trend started by the FB6, but I don't think Honda loyalists are going to care much for it and it certainly doesn't seem geared to crack the more traditional power-cruiser market. Altho "power-cruisers" seem to be in pretty short supply these days.

For my $17k, I'd still come back to Victory and get saddlebags and a windshield and cruise control, thanks.

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.

I kinda like the bike. If I had the money I would probably have a vision,F6B, vaquero and a new valkerie sitting next to my xc.

Thanks for the link. I wasn't aware they were going to bring the Valkyrie back. Very nice. Honda builds some of the best bikes on the planet when it comes to performance and especially reliability. I don't think sales figures will be any better than the original incarnation though. In my opinion the same size bike in a Magna would do much better. I like the looks of the Valkyrie although they are not to my personal style but I'd sure like to have one for a day. I also looked at a few other videos. The classic looks of the CB1100 are going to give Triumph a poke in the back as well.

Huh, and i thought it was ugly in the video! damn the still pic is worse! Like the wanna be chopper they built a few years ago, this one looks like the back half was thought about, then , oh no we still have to build the front, and jammed it on there. To me by looking at it it needs to be longer from the seat forward, looks like it got smashed in like a pugs face.
