STYLE AS UNLIMITED AS POWER.
It’s the touring engine that’s as massive as its legend—6 cylinders and 1832cc’s of smooth, seamless power. And when you build a cruiser around it, the result can only be the Gold Wing Valkyrie. Now in a new Candy Red, it’s hotter than ever.
What do people think of when asked to define America? Leadership. Independence. Freedom. A big country. And relaxed, friendly people. Next to hot dogs and apple pie, is there anything closer to that image than the hot rod? You know the formula: a big engine with tons of torque, the more cylinders the better; a low-slung chassis; and a long stretch of highway or boulevard to let it stretch its legs.
That’s the Honda Valkyrie formula. And it’s what makes this bike unlike anything else on the road. Is it for everyone? Hardly. But then, that’s the whole point of a bike like this, isn’t it?
Whether it’s the 2015 CBR1000RR or the 2015 CBR600RR, the commitment is the same: all-out racing-inspired performance. Both models feature Honda’s optional C-ABS braking system—the first of its kind on a Superbike—and each come in new color options. For the track enthusiasts, the CBR1000RR also offers a special SP Repsol Edition with features such as a fully adjustable suspension, premium tires and a special lightweight subframe.
At Honda we built our reputation on the racetrack. And the lessons we’ve learned in MotoGP, World Superbike, and countless national Superbike and Supersport classes go directly into our CBR1000RR and CBR600RR sportbikes. And best of all, they also offer something else Honda is famous for: flawless build quality and legendary reliability.
Choose the 2015 CB1000R and you get the thrill of a naked streetbike with Honda’s superbike-proven inline four. Or choose the new Interceptor and get the power of the legendary Honda V-4. Either way, the ride is awesome.
Like your steaks rare? Your clothes simple and functional? Think handsome is as handsome does? We’re with you—and the proof is right here: the Honda CB1000R. Nothing gets between you and the pure enjoyment that comes from riding a bike like this. That’s because the CB1000R is all about business: the clean, essentials-only layout perfectly frames a fuel-injected four-cylinder 998cc powerplant that’s overflowing with loads of right-now power. The unique chassis incorporates a single-sided swingarm with a high performance single-shock rear suspension that helps make this machine an exclusive choice in today’s market. You can call it a naked bike, a street fighter or a race-bred machine in civilian clothes, but the CB1000R serves as an all-around high-performance machine that’s ready to take you where you want to go.
With experience comes wisdom. Sure, fluorescent-colored breakfast cereal might be fun when you’re a kid, but as you learn more, you start eating smarter. Same with your motorcycles. Loud, flashy bikes that try to grab your attention with outrageous styling, but do not turn or stop well? Seating positions that would give a chiropractor nightmares? Pass. The experienced rider looks for a machine that works with him or her. That offers plenty of performance, that’s comfortable to ride—even at a brisk pace.
For generations, that’s meant Honda’s Interceptor, a bike that performs as well in the curves as it does on the open road. The Interceptor’s 782cc V-4 VTEC engine with fuel-injection mapping for better low-end torque feel. It includes adjustable seat height to better fit a range of riders, front-mount radiator for a slimmer profile, radial-mount front brakes, and all-side muffler, wheels and Pro-Arm swingarm. There’s even a Deluxe model for 2015 with features like traction control, anti-lock brakes, self-cancelling turn signals, a centerstand and heated grips.
