2010 Honda Fury: New Honda Chopper Motorcycle?Sun, 30 Nov 2008 00:00:00 -0800
Some may baulk at Hondaís description of the Fury as ďradical.Ē Sure itís not mind-blowing in the way a $60K custom can be, but itís worth noting that not even Harley-Davidson has produced a bike with a rake angle so stretched or a wheelbase as long. So letís admit that, for the normally staid Honda, the Fury is radical.
And to get a radical chopper with Honda levels of quality for just $13K seems like quite a bargain.

Update (Jan 16th): Above is the real deal, shot at Honda HQ in December.
Honda has recently shown its dealers some sneak-peek images of a brand-new direction they will be taking. The bike is the 2010 Honda Fury which is a 1300cc raked-out chopper that will be introduced to the US market early next spring. Apparently we will receive more information later in December. The pictures sent to dealers intentionally had the bottom-half of the bike blurred out. Speculation on the boards is rampant that this bike might be a hybrid with a gas and electric motor!
UPDATE: We have received some additional pictures courtesy of Spanish website SoloMoto of the rumored Fury undergoing some testing in Arizona. The bike is clearly not a hybrid.
We will have to wait and see but this would certainly make for a very interesting bike! Stay tuned!
