I bet you can buy a Honda Valkyrie Rune for its sheer looks. But the Honda Valkyrie Rune is much much more than that. Honda and only Honda can manage to bring a concept to reality like never before. It is designed to steal the show and to turn heads even faster than it covers the ¼ of a mile. It has a massive 1832cc liquid-cooled horizontally opposed engines which provides an ultimate hot rod experience you can ever dream of.
Its 6.1 gallon fuel tank is perfect for long range drives. It has a fuel-injection system with six 32mm throttle bodies, a revolutionary Unit Pro-Link rear suspension, Honda Ignition Security System (H.I.S.S.) provides a fool proof safety by completely disabling the ignition system and greatly reducing the possibility of theft.
It has a beautifully crafted LED taillight flush-mounted in the rear fender. Rune comes with a 6.9-liter airbox that supplies a huge quantity of cool, clean air to the engine for maximum performance. Its incredibly powerful 1100-watt alternator supplies its electrical accessories with abundance of power. The Rune has big radial tires, a 180/55R-17 rear and 150/60R-18 front that allows superb grip and a great stability while riding on high speed.
Kawasaki Vulcan is amongst the largest displacement cruiser motorcycles in the world. Its elite projector-type headlight sheathed in chrome nacelle is a show stopper. Speedometers are mounted on fuel tank with informative LDC display which keeps the rider informed about bike’s various functions. Its massive 52° V-twin, 2053cc four-stroke engine churns out explosive torque and push-rod valve actuation adds to its lower engine height, low center of gravity and comparatively low seat height. Engine Control Unit (ECU) controls its electronic fuel injection, while digital ignition system optimizes its throttle response. Spark plugs are in centre which improve combustion for smooth, reliable power and reduced emissions.
Its low maintenance belt drive is smooth, silent and very dependable. Vulcan has 16 inches, 7 spoke cast aluminum wheels fitted with massive 200/60R radial tires. Dual front 300mm disc brakes with four-piston calipers and single rear disc brakes provide enough confidence at high speed and bring this massive cruiser to a quick halt smoothly. Its big 5.5-gallon fuel tank is excellent for long drives and cross country trips. Comfortable bucket-type front and rear passenger seat provides added comfort and style to the cruiser
I think its not a wise thing or rather its impossible to compare these two beauties. Both are best and both are equally desirable.
