Harley has had huge success with the street glide. Why can't Honda bring back a version of the Valkyrie Interstate but with no lowers and no trunk?? That fully exposed H.O motor realy turns heads!! And - it would fill a need in the touring market.

Some would call it a "Super Valk"

Being in the harley land of Wisconsin street glides rule. Now those same poaple would surely take a close look at a Honda Super Valk. Maybe with a exposed chromed out 1800.

Maybe I'm dreaming

I loved the original Valkyrie Interstate, and probably would have bought one, except it was too expensive for me. But the standard Valkyrie, the touring model with leather bags and a Harley style windshield, and the Interstate were supposedly all sales failures. One has to wonder why. But look at the new Kawasaki Vaquero, with the cut down windshield and all, including a very good copy of the Harley engine. It seems to be that engine people want. Whether it's real or a copy.

I kinda run my 1100 like that, I'll remove the trunk if I know I'm not going to need it. Kinda gives the same look.

The street glide is HD's flavor of the year, the bike every "biker" had a hard-on for these days.

Why won't Honda do it?
It's because the american market is peanuts to them anymore. The sales numbers overseas far exceed the amount of bikes sold here.
So Honda wisely designs bikes for them.
