    Well, that's what they did. They're not even trying to hide it.

    I know it doesn't come with cruise control but I don't have that anyway now.
    Great article in Cycle World comparing it to a CVO Road Glide.
    Agree - Decent Review as well - it does bugs me why Honda still likes to chimp out on basic needed features.
    Even as dealer tech moons ago - it's never changed.
    Cruise - self canceling - fog lights - for this ride should be safety standards w/o a thought -
    Adding them after vs factory - doubles the cost of features.
    Reverse - as option.

    I got as far as sitting on it - but missed the test ride.
    But I've always liked Honda's Stereo's - of always having great finger tip control features.
    From day one the best.

    Yeah, it's just I keep seeing people call it the new valkyrie. This is nowhere close to a valkyrie

    You are confusing two different bikes. The "new Valkyrie" is a different bike than the F6B. Google it and you will see. People are not calling the F6B the "new Valkyrie". They are calling the recently announced new Valkyrie the "new Valkyrie." Oh, and the "new Valkyrie" looks nothing like the old Valkyrie.

    G'day,

    They're almost identical!!! New valkyrie is a f6b minus saddlebags and windshield lol. Both look like goldwings to me.

    Running gear and frames are exactly the same as the Goldwing on the new bikes...Also the running gear and possibly the frames (not 100% positive, but I think so) were identical on the 1500 'Wing and Valkyrie back then...Valkyrie was always a Goldwing without all the plastic body panels...

    Yeah but at least the Valkyrie of old showed off the awesome engine in it. This one is mostly covered by that plastic scoop, near the gas tank. That's why I think this one fails, cruisers in general show off the motor, they don't hide it.

    Radiators are in those scoops...Like I said, same frame and layout as the Goldwing...They're in the exact same spots on the 'Wing...They gotta put the radiator someplace...And I always thought the huge radiator on the old Valkyrie 1500 stuck out like a sore thumb...Taking away from the great looks of the rest of the bike....
