2001 Honda GL1500C Valkyrie
Solid and dependable, perfectly balanced, with a low center of gravity
I've been riding a supercharged 2001 Valkyrie for 13 years. It also has nitrous oxide, with 144 HP on the throttle and an additional 50 HP with the bottle. You better be riding a Busa and twist your throttle hard to get around me.
I have ridden this GL1500 all over the country, and have many first place trophies for best cruiser.
Being water cooled keeps it dependable in all weathers. Could never imagine trying to push any air cooled bike this hard.
The blown nitrous Valkyrie is a beast!! Everything I have ridden feels like a toy after getting off a 195 HP flat six with an ultra smooth driveshaft and a cruising speed of 100+ all day long. This heavyweight is a Cadillac on the highway, and it's made in the USA.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
