1997 Honda Valkyrie (USA). 1520 cc liquid-cooled, horizontally opposed six cylinder four stroke, five speed tranmission. Top speed 130 mph. Essentially a stripped down sports version of the Gold Wing, the Valkyrie can do 12.03 seconds at 110.58 in a quarter mile, eclipsing the rest of the cruisers on the market. Sadly, the last year of production was 2003. Valkyrie was one of the maidens of the Norse god Odin, who transported warriers to Valhalla. Sweet ride!
