Dragon King Valkyrie Custom Is Japanese Madness
text size: A- A+
So is the case with the guys at Whitehouse Japan, who have taken the six-cylinder power cruiser and applied a shocking facelift, one that provides a mouth-watering result, somehow reminding us of Hayabusa’s styling cues.
Dubbed Whitehouse Ryujin, or Dragon King, this super-modified Valkyrie received various bodywork enhancements, including a stylised front fairing and custom painting that makes it look like a menace to the road. In addition to that, the seat height is 28.75 inch
Powered by a torque-laden 1520cc single camshaft flat six-cylinder engine, the bike has also received an exhaust pipe treatment with six end cans in total. Delivering 100hp and 132Nm (96 lb.ft.) of torque, and boasting a 16-liter fuel tank, this beast is likely to make you actually enjoy the Valkyrie.
The Dragon King Valkyrie tips the scales at 296kg (653lbs), which is quite reasonable for a bike with such a giant engine displacement.
We have to remind you that in the original Valkyrie model, this unit has been transplanted from Honda’s Goldwing bike, which was quite unusual since most cruiser-style bikes were based on a V-tein engine design similar to Harley-Davidson’s. The Valkyrie was built by Honda’s Ohio-based plant in the United States, and it was offered with a reverse gear in Japan.
