Huge 2015 Honda Gold Wing Valkyrie, with powerful frame and chassis, must have big output. For that, 1832 cc flat-six unit come as good choice. Quality and reliability, but again, excellent performance are all qualities of this powerplant. Producing 110 hp and 110 lb-ft of torque are fair enough for a cruiser. Rear wheel is moving the bike and it gets power through 5-speed transmission. Experts are together in opinion that 6-speed gearbox would suit better to 6-cylinder engine, producing better ratios and sound.
