So that’s the best way to look at this motorcycle, as a springboard for ideas. If Honda hears that people like the general idea of a true Valkyrie hot rod with even more performance, you can be sure that the company will push it along. If customers seem to be drawn to the performance look rather than an actual performance boost beyond the present Valkyrie, that is the direction the firm’s street rods will go. Or maybe Honda’s product-planning people will hear that you love or hate the profile, the riding position, the swingarm, the frame design, the wheels, the pipes, the side-cover treatment, or some other aspect large or small which this motorcycle brings to light or to mind. If demand for this sort of taillight styling is strong enough, maybe Honda designers can make it work on a future production bike. If you tell them that the street-rod concept is great but that you’d rather see it executed with a V-twin or a V-4, this motorcycle can lead to models like that as well. And if half the people who comment on the bike say they just have to have it, then we will see how close Honda can come and still make it legal.
