As Chopper Motorcycles Go, the 2012 Honda Fury is a Doozie!

Thank Jessie James. Chances are good that without him and the Tuttles, Honda would never have thought to introduce the 2012 Honda Fury to the world. Of course, the bike isn’t without its drawbacks, but like all chopper motorcycles, the Fury just doesn’t care.

Chopper motorcycles are notoriously difficult to ride, particularly those with the stretched-out front ends, sky-high handlebars, and hardtail setups. Add to this a price tag that’s usually sky-high to the tune of $60,000 or more, and you can see why the era of the factory chopper has come. The 2012 Honda Fury is just such a motorcycle, though one that moves away from the traditional chopper mindset to provide a motorcycle that really is a hybrid between a chopper motorcycle and a rideable motorcycle.

At the core of the Fury is Honda’s 1,312cc liquid-cooled engine with fuel injection and a five-speed transmission. A shaft final drive keeps the rear end clean and maintenance-free, but adds extra weight to the back end. You get disc brakes front and rear combined with a distinctive hardtail look thanks to the hidden shock absorber/spring mounted out of sight.

The 2012 Honda Fury Provides plenty of power, and with mild modifications, can run with many larger motorcycles if you routinely enjoy open-track drag racing events. Expect your E.T.s to be in the mid to high 9s with practice and a keen eye on the starting tree. Some riders report that with minor modifications such as a revised airbox and intake tuning, low to middle eight-second E.T.s are possible.

Although the Fury is a nicely powerful motorcycle, it still draws more attention for its aggressive styling than for its other attributes. The low-slung seat is deeply settled into the frame, providing a comfortably low center of gravity. Custom-look front and rear fenders provide protection from road debris, and the sculpted fuel tank holds 3.4 gallons of fuel.

Not much, but enough to get you where you’re going.

Chopper motorcycles typically utilize what is called a hardtail frame combined with a sprung seat. This harkens back to the early days of motorcycling, when frames were constructed rigidly in order to maintain the correct ride geometry. While the styling aspect of the hardtail is clean and smooth, true hardtails can provide a particularly jarring ride.

By hiding the spring and shock, the 2012 Honda Fury effectively conveys the sense of a chopper motorcycle, while at the same time providing the kind of comfortable, reliable ride motorcyclists have come to expect of the Honda manufacturing company.

The 2012 Honda Fury is available in three color schemes, including black, black with red frame paint, and blue. Pricing for this ride starts out at $13,390.
