Large, loud, reliable, quick, impressive, limited
No mechanical issues ever.
This bike was outfitted with glass pack mufflers and 4" slash cut truck stacks for the exhaust. It had a different ignition trigger wheel and jetting. All in all, this was an impressive motorcycle, physically and mechanically. The sound of 6 cylinders through those stacks was awesome. Everyone loved the looks too; lots of chrome.
The seating position was good, the handling was fair and the performance was good in a straight line. The downside to these is no fuel gauge, it's thirsty, it's hard to move your feet because of the cylinders, and no 6th gear.
Overall I would buy another Honda, but not another 96-03 Valkyrie.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
