Honda Fury --

Just saw this and thought you Honda fans would like to see --

http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2009/Jan/090116iqa.htm

To quote them --

"The Fury opens the door to the most extreme level of custom looks. But once you're rolling, the Fury experience is all about that special bond between rider and machine: the unmistakable big V-twin pulse, the characteristic Vee engine note and the no-nonsense riding stance bring you back to the core elements of riding."


We get this and Europe get the good stuff

Only good thing, seeing as how so many major players have gone and built a factory chopper, the death of these bikes isnt too far away !!

Honda does suck for refusing to update their bikes, but you don't even deserve a harley for speaking such words...

Now go trade your 919 in for a bike more your speed. Might I suggest a Buell Blast.

American Honda introduced to the world what many have deemed the most radically styled production Honda ever built: the 2010 Fury. The Fury radiates attitude and delivers a total riding experience approaching the outer limits of motorcycling.






WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE??
I've seen dozens of choppers that look pretty similar to the Flurry...
I'm pretty sure if I saw one of these sitting amongst a pack of choppers I wouldn't be able to say, "hey, that's a Honda".
Nope, pretty sure I'd ignore it just like the rest of 'em.

I'm not bashing choppers here, I'm just sayin' I wouldn't call it RADICAL!!! or EXTREME!!!!
Oh, how I hate the use of...

EXTREEEEME!!!!

Well in pics it looks better than the raider, but at 1300cc I dont see it as a direct competitor, and unfortunately for Honda, I think the custom chopper fad is already fading. Harely rags have been covering more Baggers than Choppers for the last year almost/

Dear Red,

Congrats Honda!!!

You have one again succeeded in producing a bike no one wants. Joining its late model development bluders-of-kin the Rune, the Grimus purple DN-01 Monstrosity, Big Ruckus, CRF230L, CRF230M, Rincon, Aquatrax, etc, etc. The Fury looks to gain market share where there is none to be had.

Kudos to you for keeping the new CB1000, CB1300, CB1000F, and Hornet 600 overseas; while the 919, 599, Interceptor, XR650L, XR650R, Goldwing, ST1300, Super Hawk, RC51, etc. etc. wither &/or die on the vine from old age & general apathy. The fact you can still crate up & ship out those Rebels says alot--that they must not make calendars in Japan.

In designing the Fury; you have once again arrived to a party late by at least 6 years---due in no uncertain terms to the bean counters, lawyers, product liability people, & the countless clueless focus groups that run the show at Big Red. In true "industry leader" form even your pathetic late entry is so bland & vanilla by the time the above people are done with it you would have been better off throwing the whole thing back in the scrap steel bin & saving the trees from being wasted on brochures.

Oh well Honda--guess I'll still see you at the races--you know with your riders & bikes that dominate the motosport world. The likes of McGrath, Lamson, Duhamel, Summers, Haden, Carmichael. Your untouchable early to mid 90s MXer's. Your revolutionary Hurricanes. Your bullet prooof XR's. Your class defining Goldwing. But wait, no. Its 2009 now. On the off chance you still even have a race team so much with talent to race it. That time has gone; that time has passed on, just like you have Honda. I dont recognize you anymore Red, & I miss you.

Sincerely,
Bryce919er

Here , here ! only thing you forgot about was allowing talented racers who win races and title slip beacuse , it wasnt the rider making the difference, it was thier bike - A la, Edwards, Rossi , Carmichale, McGrath and on and on --- Now if the general bike buying public would wake up to this as you have !

Why won't they show a good picture of the right side of the bike?

Because it is just as boring and ugly as the left?

Come on, how many times can a Harley be cloned?

I agree with Bryce, everyone else cloned the Harley years ago, honda tried with some of the older cruiser bikes, this one comes closer.
If you want something that looks like a Harley, buy a Harley the replacement parts are ALOT Less costly, the aftermarket has driven the prices down on everything you would want to bolt on and call it a "Custom Fabrication" Bike, but the Honda stuff is just plain EXPENSIVE comparatively.

And their little inroduction statement sounds just like the intro of the Cross Bones, Vrod, ect.....

I Can and will ride anything!

New addition 1978 CB750Four
2006 919
1994 home built springer

1942 WLA (Gotta finish this one as well)
1985 Honda 200M ATC

extreme level of custom looks... right there in the 1st sentence... cutting edge man.... maybe just a little to wild and out there for us to wrap our puny brains around man.... i mean the writer said is "most extreme"....

i heard that jesse james and those a$$hats at occ closed up manufacturing when they saw the picture and read the article... it is rumoured they are all still in hiding from the knowledge that they are no longer "avant gard"

honda has made the greatest custom chopper looking thing ever designed or imagined...

and look it has "core elements"... yeah..

I would have to say it's a pretty darn good looking bike for a production bike from a manufacturer like Honda. Plus, it is supposed to be affordable, and it's a Honda. It also leaves a lot of room for customization being it's bare bones, to make it yours. I would have to give Honda a for this one. Not every one likes sport bikes or scooters. Some may want something different than the ordinary cruiser. Just my ...

i cant remember honda making anything where the quality wasnt top notch...

we were just admiring the 4 years too late to capitalize on the chopper "boom" and the wording using "cutting edge" and all that other crap on a motorcycle that is "not too bad"....lol....

honda day late... dollar short...lol...


and the vmax is a monster... a big heavy powerful beast... now if it could loose 150 pounds... wooohooo!!!!!!

i am not a chopper guy at all, but i think the price is going to be around 13k. now for that price i would rather buy a st1300 vfr800 1000rr 600rr or another 919. but for someone that likes choppers that is a great price. low seat height fuel injected. with all those purdy colors be a great chick chopper, and they even have dark colors for those big burly guys that cant have a purdy bike. now granted they most likly sell as fast as the big red is, but we wont know untill we get them.
