Strange none of the overseas “F6C” models made post 2015 represented here I’d be curious as to one of those bike VIN’s (if they even DO such a thing)
I have captured at least one, but don't remember which. User posted a photo of the VIN placad, where the # had an 'F' and the placard had 2015 in larger print below the #, and in the far upper right of the placard, the 2017 date was stamped/engraved in tiny numbers, in a format like "02/17". I'll try to search back and see if I find it here. The other site I used had 2 different threads and the search tool was painful.

This is a 2015 model (note 'F' in the VIN #, purchased in Sydney, Australia.

Here's another one from user Gold Jai on FBook's Honda 1800 Valkyrie site, VIN # 192, production date of 8/17 ! I think he's in Australia. Too bad the photo didn't capture more of the VIN #. Fascinating.

On the image of the #0173 plate, note the leading J and then K in the middle for the KUMAMOTO, Japan plant, and then I think the U is for ABS (User stated bike was ABS model) where the rest of us have an 'N'. Sorry for so many replies as I'm copying and pasting my tail off with multiple windows...

Bringing this thread up again for Hondalpine, Runerider, other new members, and any older members who haven't yet participated. Runerider commented about the Rune vs qualifications for a "limited production" designation for a production run of 3,000 - 3,500, and it certainly looks like the 2014/15 Valk might unofficially be in that category as well. See below in this thread for where to find the VIN on your frame and how to decode it. We're particularly interested in any 2015's higher than 00228 and 2014 higher than 01850 . There was one report of 1100, but that report was an outlier and so might have been an inadvertent report of mileage instead of the VIN#. If the 1100 report from Ashland MO is ignored, then the highest numbers reported by 119 owners on 2 different web sites are
0228 for 2015 and
1850 for 2014, a total of only 2078 bikes.

If the VIN Report of 1100 is accurate for 2015, then still only 2950 for 2 years, supporting the possibility of a 3000 production run.

Washington State, 2014 black 000003
Thanks for bringing up that old registry thread, Farther, and congrats on having the lowest number I've seen so far! You just beat out 000004 that Formervtxrider reported in Lees Summit, MO (also black).

How do I find the registration date for my 2014?
Turn the handlbars all the way to the right and you'll see the VIN Placard on the left side of the frame just in front of the tank. E near the middle of the VIN# is for 2014, F is for 2015.

Reaching out to all 2015 owners - does anyone have a VIN# containing an 'F' (for 2015) and higher than the 000228 reported for the red one in N Carolina ?! If so, you get braggin rights of the newest one reported on 2 different sites. If not, then it looks like maybe as few as 1,850 + 228 = 2,078 made across the 2 years. I've heard from 136 bikes so far, and the numbers are grouped pretty tightly.
