I remember that when I announced the launch of the Honda Fury, your comments went in 2 opposite directions. It’s a nice Chopper with a competitive price, but it’s a Honda. And it’s a nice chopper at a very attractive price and who cares if it’s a Honda. At less than $13,000, with a pure new chopper line (38-degree rake, 71 1/4″ wheelbase, 26″ low seat), a 1312 cc liquid cooled V-Twin engine with a single-pin crankshaft and dual balancers, a 5-speed transmission, beefy 45 mm forks with 4″ of travel, an adjustable single shock rear suspension, the 2010 new Fury was not only the most distinctive custom Honda had ever created but aso a very attractive motorcycle susceptible to appeal to part of the Harley or Harley clone crowd. Even more if Honda was able to demonstrate that its factory Honda could be easily turned into a very nice custom.
Thanks to one of its in-house designers named Nick Renner, a stock Fury was turned into a Furious Chopper. All manufacturers know the added emotional value that a cool custom can bring to a brand and its models, and I have no doubt that the one-off Furious version featured here will make the Honda Fury even more desirable too many. Bike was converted into a hard tail with a 45-degree rake (by using a 8-degree offset triple tree), pounds the street with a 23″ wheel up front and a 20″ on the rear. Other features include an exposed shaft drive, custom oversized drag bars, custom exhaust system, custom diamond stitched leather seat and rear hugger, Accutronix grips/forward controls, Accutronix air cleaner and throttle body, metal flake paint job with variegated leafing, etc. Honda Motorcycles (photography copyright and courtesy Honda R&D Americas for Cyril Huze)
