The 2010 Honda Fury, Honda is Going Wild

The 2010 Honda Fury, welcome to the side-of Honda we did not expected, in an unprecedented bold move, Honda has introduced one of the first factory-built choppers. The 2010 Honda Fury is long, low and has plenty of attitude. Boasting the longest wheelbase of any Honda motorcycle ever, it's powered by a PGM-FI fuel-injected V-twin based on the same engine as the Honda VTX1300. New cams, a single-pin crankshaft and a sleek, chrome shotgun exhaust produce a satisfying growl while delivering a copious amount of power.

Engine torque rules in the big bike / chopper market segment, where stoplight-to-stoplight blasting is more the norm than long-distance touring. Think of the Honda Fury VTI1300 as rolling jewelry.

Probably the most attention-grabbing feature is the extended fork attached to the 6-degree-raked triple trees. Combined with 32-degrees in the neck, trail is brought in to a relatively agile 88.9mm. Sitting on the Honda Fury one immediately notices how light the steering feels; there's no flop or heaviness at all. Despite the raked front end and long wheelbase, the Honda Fury VTI1300 is nimble at parking-lot speeds yet stable on the highway. This is a Honda, after all, and the engineering is top-notch.

We got to spend about an hours aboard the Honda Fury around the office of a Bangkok dealer. It was amazing to see the head-turning effect this bike had on the general public at Ramkhamhaeng road. At first glance the Honda Fury VTI1300 doesn't scream out any particular brand – corporate logos are all below the belt line.

The Honda Fury has no badging at all on the beautifully sculpted fuel tank, and a solitary Fury sticker on the rear fender. The only permanent Honda logos are on the engine and side covers.

Although the Honda Fury is a very modern motorcycle, Honda went to great lengths to give it a retro look. The Honda Fury VTI1300 costs 668.000 Baht or 695,000 Baht for the ABS model.
