Personally I think Honda should bring back the original "Valkyrie"(not the rune)with a 1/2 gal larger gas tank and a "Overdrive 6th gear for better milage!

Also think they should put the "Overdrive Gear" on the "GoldWing", the Worlds greatest touring bike should be getting 50 MPG like the Harleys !!!

Several guys I talked to said they would buy it in a minute !

Yep..., the Valk was the only bike in many years that made me consider buying a brand new one. I can't believe they discontinued the standard Valkyrie and kept that hideous Rune (Prune?) thing. Not only would I never be seen riding one of those monstrosities, you couldn't beat me hard enough to stand beside one.

6 carbs is a little daunting, too. An injected valk, overdrive, oh man. What a beasty!

I would go into debt (further) for one.

I think the Rune is on the way out as well. There won't be an 07 model.

This forum is "feedback for hondas goldwing team ,I think it was for suggestions on how to improve the GOLDWING ,,So lets keep it at goldwings for the moment and maybe at a later date we could look at the valkyrie ,,other wise this forum will see postings for the magna ,shadow etc ,,cheers Ciaran

I thought the Valkyrie was made by the Goldwing Team. Personally I would be tickled if the brought back the original Valkerie in an aspencade and called the 2007 Gold Wing

Thats what the valkyrie interstate is ,,,,,,more or less ..I think the reason why Steve started this section of the forum was to get as many ideas for GOLDWING from all the different countries and riders and then hope someone in the upper levels of HONDAs design team might take some of the suggestions on board and put them to use ,,Valkyrie uses a modified goldwing 1500 engine ,So lets get back to goldwing suggestions ...Ciaran

The Valk is dead, we won't see it back again. It had a good run, but that's it.

I always considered the "Valkyrie" a beefed up "Gold Wing", the 97 Wing had the same engine as the Valk?!

At any rate they both need a 6th Speed "Overdrive" gear to improve gas mileage!

For $18000 I think a Bike should get 50 MPG !

That way you recoup some of the investment!
