For decades, singles and twin-cylinder bikes ruled the world of motorcycling. Honda turned all that upside down by introducing a whole lineup of multi-cylinder street machines. And that trend-setting tradition charges full-speed ahead today with a complete line of bikes powered by Honda’s iconic horizontally opposed six-cylinder engines. No other manufacturer even comes close to touching what Honda has achieved in offering to riders the Gold Wing®, Valkyrie, Valkyrie Rune, Gold Wing F6B and now the brand-new Valkyrie.

Totally shocking at its debut, Honda’s six-cylinder engine technology has been refined over decades of production. Big performance rules here, joined by a solid reputation for smoothness and durability. These Big Sixes deliver a completely unique riding experience that thousands of riders flat-out love. So here we’ll take a quick look at some of the most memorable six-cylinder machines in this big family tree, and see how we arrived at today’s lineup.
