Description:
The Honda Valkyrie is a motorcycle that was manufactured by Honda, from model years 1997 to 2003. It was designated GL1500C in the US market and F6C in other markets.The Valkyrie engine is a liquid cooled, horizontally-opposed flat-six engine transplanted from Honda's Goldwing model. This was unusual since most "cruiser" style motorcycles were based on a V-twin engine design similar to the engine of a Harley-Davidson.

The Valkyrie was offered with a reverse gear in Japan. The Valkyrie was made in the U.S.A. at the Honda motorcycle plant in Marysville, Ohio.
