Honda Rune

Honda Rune

Could 2004 really be the last year for the Honda Valkyrie Rune?

The Honda Valkyrie Rune. A dream. An icon. A legend. A machine that will change the definition of cruiser. Forever. Introducing the Rune. It’ll only take a second to know it’s different, but you’ll appreciate it for a lifetime.Style. Attitude. Performance.

Do you remember the T2 concept bike Honda revealed in the March/April 2001 issue of Honda Red Rider? Essentially, the Valkyrie Rune takes the T2 concept to the production line, and will be available in limited numbers. The Valkyrie Rune incorporates a unique diamond-shaped aluminum frame for robust strength along with light weight, plus a fuel-injected 1832cc engine based on the GL1800 power plant. Before you think the Valkyrie Rune is merely a hot-rod exercise in radical style, take a look at the bike’s innovative suspension systems.

Meanwhile, styling element after styling element tears at your eyeballs, vying for attention. Where to look? At the chromed cylinder head covers evocative of muscle car hardware? The gorgeous, smoothly flowing six-into-two exhaust system so artfully sculpted into place? The brawny disc brakes, which are the largest ever mounted on a Honda motorcycle? Or how about the gracefully flowing lines of the neo/retro low-slung bodywork with the solo seat that beckons you to slide aboard for the ride of your life? The Valkyrie Rune redefines the ultimate performance custom.

The information we got from Honda is that 2005 could very well be the LAST YEAR for the Honda Rune. If anything small will happen it could be a new paint job for 2005. But information has it that Honda could be redesigning the 2006 Honda Rune into something new… Asked if they are considering any of the Rune T-Concept bikes gave us a “no comment” responce…

If the 2004 model impressed us, 2006 will surely hold some Honda Magic!

The Honda Valkyrie Rune concept motorcycles, T1, T2, T3 and T4. The current (2004) Honda Rune is closest to T3. Could the new 2005/2006 one be T1, T3 or T4?

Engine/Drivetrain

– Engine is a 1795cc liquid-cooled 52¡ V-twin that hammers out immense power–106bhp at 5000 rpm and 120 lb./ft. of torque at 3500 rpm.

– V-twin engine features 4-inch cylinder bores and the largest connecting rods and cylinders Honda has ever made.

– Offset dual-pin crankshaft with two primary-shaft-mounted balance weights allows a high-performance engine design while eliminating harsh engine vibration. The result: muscular power across a broad rpm range for unequaled acceleration and roll-on performance.

– The 41.4-pound forged steel crankshaft uses bolted weights, reducing crankcase width nearly 2 inches and reducing crankshaft weight 8.8 pounds compared to a conventional one-piece design.

– The engine mounting system uses carefully matched hangers and rubber mounts to eliminate unwanted vibration, while preserving the powerful character of the engine’s V-twin design.

– Each three-valve cylinder head features two large, 36mm intake valves and a huge, 45mm exhaust valve to produce optimum flow for the air/fuel charge.

– Two iridium-tip spark plugs per cylinder for efficient combustion at all engine speeds.

– Simple-to-service screw-and-locknut valve-clearance adjusters.

– 4.5-liter airbox supplies a large volume of cool, clean air to the engine.

– Advanced high-pressure programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) features 42mm-diameter throttle bodies delivering air to two specially designed Denso(r) 50-psi high-pressure fuel injectors. Fuel is delivered through 12 nozzle holes in each injector, producing an atomized fuel mixture that is highly combustible for maximum efficiency and power.

– Electronic control unit (ECU) provides individual digital 3-D fuel injection and ignition maps for each cylinder, creating ideal fuel mixture and spark advance settings for superb rideability.

– A unique dry-sump oiling system utilizes a closed crankcase design and places the oil tank inside the gearbox case. The result is a freer-revving engine for improved power, and a lower engine height.

– Radiator with cooling fan maintains consistent engine temperature for optimum performance and long engine life.

– Maintenance-free automatic cam-chain tensioners.

– Reliable electric-starter system.

– Primary drive gear uses a cam-type damper to minimize powertrain lash.

– Sturdy, maintenance-free eight-plate hydraulic clutch with clutch-center damper assures smooth gear shifting.

– Five-speed transmission with carefully selected gear ratios for relaxed cruising and exciting roll-on performance.

– Shaft final-drive system provides smooth, low-maintenance operation.

– Driven flange design at the final drive gear eliminates final drive noise and wear, and simplifies rear wheel installation.

Chassis/Suspension

– Massive tubular steel frame contains the engine’s power and gives the VTX a long, low, muscular stance.

– Large, 45mm-inverted front fork provides 5.1 inches of plush yet responsive wheel travel.

– Dual chromed rear shocks have 3.9 inches of wheel travel and feature an advanced internal valve system for a comfortable ride.

– The VTX’s braking system features two three-piston front calipers and a single two-piston rear caliper. Rider application of the front brake lever activates the two outer pistons of the front calipers. Application of the rear brake pedal activates the two pistons of the rear caliper and the center pistons of the front calipers. When only the rear brake pedal is used, an inline delay valve smooths application of the front caliper center pistons.

Additional Features

– Distinctive, chrome hooded-headlight housing features a powerful, 55W/60W halogen bulb with a computer-designed multi-reflector for superb lighting in all conditions.

– Tank-mounted chrome nacelle houses the fuel cap, tripmeter/odometer reset and indicator/ warning lights for the turn signals, high beam, neutral indicator, low fuel level, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and fuel injection.

– Large speedometer with easy-to-read numerals.

– Comfortably padded large-diameter handgrips with polished aluminum handlebar switch-housings and triple-clamp assembly.

– Reliable, 300-watt alternator.
