Riding Impression: 2010 Fury A factory chopper the most unlikely source.

By Kevin Wing

Confused? So are we. The must be out of alignment or something.

But now owns an Italian sportbike (MV Agusta), BMW is building dirtbikes and Honda has not only designed but is selling a chopper! What is the coming to. Honda openly even boasts, that the Fury is all ’bout image, and sound.

Honda is still though, and it simply isn’t of building a bike that aim to function at the pinnacle of whatever said bike fits Its engineers just aren’t to do anything less.

So even though the Fury like a chopper, sounds a chopper (okay maybe the is turned down halfway due to the pipes) and when you sit on it feels bit a chopper, when you hit the starter you realize something is really The 1312cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected V-Twin, snaps instantly to and settles into the well-mannered, beat we’ve become with in its VTX-sourced single-pin-crank No backfiring flames from the no rough idle, just a thrum emitting from the stacked twin pipes.

The first question is why Honda the smaller VTX mill over the (now discontinued) 1795cc Of course, there’s a very explanation: packaging.
