Honda Unveils 2012 Fury Chopper Motorcycle

The Fury must be a special bike to many because Honda still makes it almost 3 years after its launch. At the time, not many gave it a chance to succeed against American style choppers. Must be because of its good value, offering a liquid cooled 1312 cc V-Twin 52º engine  for a very reasonable base price of $12,999 (ABS version is $13,999) The 2012 Honda Fury include new chopper styled decals, new powerful sound, better engine which emits lesser pollutants, better riding position, extra wide rear tire (200 mm), slim front tire, low 26,7-inch seat, custom cast wheels, programmed fuel injection, newly designed shaft drive, and of course Honda’s undying reliability. Honda Fury.

    i dont think they sell these in the UK – certainly not seen one on the road – but you cant knock the product and the price, so good luck to them.

    I love the black w/ red frame

    Might have a cheap feel and lack some real metal compared to their american competitor, but LOOK at the price!!!

    And for that matter, I think they look better than the Vics.

    it would be a real nice commuter thats for sure! save the mileage on the harley for the fun stuff and rack up the miles on the jap bike

    Honestly guys…I thought it looked like pure plastic (the matte black definitely does), but when I was designing controls for them, the guy who brought in the donor bike had added a little more chrome than stock and it was beautiful. I still think they need to drop the ass end 3″, but they are actually a damn nice looking bike in the black and blue.

    please stop making them they are stupid and ugly , and its not a chopper its corporate masturbation

  7. 7 Richard Jan 5th, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    You know….I don’t think I’ve seen even one on the road in Minnesota. Does anyone know how many they sold in the last year???

  8. 8 Matt Jan 5th, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    Didn’t think I would ever see the day when Honda would become the most successful maker of production choppers =).

  9. 9 Kroeter Jan 5th, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    Amen, Sollis, fugly. Can’t put my finger on it but it doesn’t flow: frame, motor, gas tank, radiator. But if you can slap down 13 grand to say you own a “chopper”, more power to ya.

    You lost me at “Chopper styled decals…”

  11. 11 Paul @ Aeromach Jan 5th, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    Saw one two years ago in Sturgis parked in front of the Big Dog tent. Thought it was their $20k lifesaver. If only……

    Lots of plastic covers and headlight. For $600 you can get a minibike with a metal headlight at Northern Tool!

  12. 12 ItsmePaul Jan 5th, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    To much plastic.
    Rear fender sits way to high
    Rotors and calipers are cheap looking
    Over-all frame ( side view ) looks to be be squished and needs more stretch.
    To much of a ” look at me – can’t afford a real one ” vibe .
    If someone wants a bike like that. They should get a custom built for themselves.
    And if they can’t afford it. Then they should live with themself and accept it.

  13. 13 GetReal Jan 5th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    There is a certain Poster here that likes to ridicule me that rides one.

    Maybe he will chime in tell us how much he likes his?


  14. 14 Ozyape Jan 5th, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    Kind of reminds me of a fake Rolex you can buy on the streets of Bali. In saying that if it was buy that or ride nothing…I reckon I would buy one!

  15. 15 Billy Jan 5th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    “but when I was designing controls for them,” I expect nothing less from THE Supreme Team. Their shit doesn’t stink, does it. You weren’t designing controls for Honda. You were making some aftermarket controls. A lot of people talk trash about the Jap and Chinese bikes, but this is a case of “jump on the bandwagon”. Supreme’s stuff is nice, but why not put all the effort and time you take in commenting on this blog and use it to run your business. Support Cyril, buy an ad. Don’t waste our time with your cheap marketing tactics. #wasteoftime

    I live near a military base and have seen several soldiers riding Furys. They look better in person.

  17. 17 PaulHart Jan 6th, 2012 at 8:51 am

    I’d rather take the $13k I had to spend and buy a low miliage used Big Dog. The last bike I had with decals on it was a Huffy in 1976 or so.

  18. 18 10377586 Jan 6th, 2012 at 9:14 am

    I can see a friend or two of mine on these. Budget won’t allow them HD right now and they both love to ride. I don’t knock what anyone rides, unless they ride stupid. Not for me but I don’t see a problem with them if that’s what a guy wants to ride.

  19. 19 Jersey James Jan 6th, 2012 at 9:18 am

    Chopper? My ass! Just more Jap~ CRAP!

  20. 20 The Supreme Team Jan 6th, 2012 at 10:42 am

    Why don’t you tell us how you really feel. Perhaps you should find some time to do something other than come on here and bash people. You are welcome to look anywhere on this site and try to find me bashing ANY make of bike…you won’t find it.
    As far as my comment, that’s the first time I saw the Fury up close and Tony’s bike happened to be a hell of a fine example of what this bike can look like.
    People like you are a dime a dozen Billy…always opening their mouth in an attempt to seem important.
    I happen to be in front of the computer a lot of time during the day and pop on to Cyril’s site to take a break. What do YOU contribute to the blog?
    As far as our shit not stinking…well I hate to brag, but hell you’re welcome to pucker up and judge for yourself.

    Have a better day there Billy.

  21. 21 Maddpuppy Jan 6th, 2012 at 12:43 pm

    HAhaha, i read the heading, and my “mind” is thinking Furry, so i read the article and its a Honda. I knew I shoulda of stayed in bed.

  22. 22 burnout Jan 6th, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    Honda needs to put the 1800 in there. peace

  23. 23 Gerry Jan 6th, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    Let’s get Billy and Supreme team into the Octagon and see if we can make some money on this. Just sayin’

  24. 24 The Supreme Team Jan 6th, 2012 at 6:56 pm

    LMAO @ Gerry. Just shaking my head that somebody ALWAYS finds a way to cause drama on this site. I say “it’s a nice bike” and I get jumped on for “cheap marketing tactics”. My bad….those semantics always seem to get me in trouble when the peanut gallery nitpicks the content.

    Not sure how I implied that I actually “designed” for Honda, when I meant “I designed controls for them”…if you know I make controls, you know what I meant. Crazy kids today…I’m tellin’ ya.

  25. 25 Jason Hallman Jan 7th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Fury = fake…I tried but I cannot get past all the plastic and investment cast parts on it. It is funny…everyone always gets all butt hurt when you rip on a Japanese bike vs. a Harley but when you get a chance to look at this bike up close and in person it just reeks of “cheap” and to be honest it looks like a throw away bike. Like a Johnny Pag or something.

    thank you, I love the black w/ red frame

    Nice bike, easy on the money..

  29. 29 Darryl Briggs Jan 9th, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    Damn the readership of this blog sure is a “tough crowd”. But remember, most of the readers on here have been riding for years. They have put their time in and bought the bike they have been wanting for years. I’d venture to say that Honda’s customer base is much younger than the readership on here. And honestly, when is the last time most of the readers of this blog have even been in a Honda dealership?

    Take this for what it’s worth. We all know the industry needs new, young, blood. Maybe some kid looking to buy a streetbike will see this and decide that maybe a chopper is the way to go instead. Doubtful that he can afford a Harley anyway. But he might be able to fund this ride and who knows, maybe his next bike will be a Harley.

  30. 30 Jim Gianatsis / Jan 9th, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    Honda is 10-15 years too late on the chopper craze. The motorcycle consumers back then could have used a safe, reliable, safe handling and stopping, easily served and fully warranted custom motorcycle by a major manufacturer, And it might have saved the custom bike industry.

    But now the general consumer market for choppers is gone and will never return. Honda should have shelved putting this bike into production 3 years ago when the market was in its death throws. They should be marketing electric motorcycles today, not choppers.

    I’ve never seen one of these Honda Furys in a marketing campaign, at my LA Calendar Motorcycle Show or the Rock Store, Sturgis, Laughlin or on the road in 3 years they’ve been available.

    I’m guess they may be out of production and they are selling off old inventory as 2012 models?

    I believe the US pricing is more realistic than in the UK where it was more expensive than any then-current Dyna when we tested one: we put one against a Victory Jackpot to give it a chance to score on price if nothing else – and because the national bike paper had amusingly chosen to pitch it against a Rocker C as its natural rival – and the Vic destroyed it in every single regard: build quality, materials, finish, performance, fuel economy and functionality, and despite the amount of plastic on the Fury – and there is an inexcusable amount – it couldn’t even claim to be significantly lighter.

    Gutless, soulless and the most disappointing bike I’ve ridden since a stock, strangled, carburetted 883 Sportster from the bad old days, but you could always get an 883 breathing properly to get a half-decent bike out of it.

  32. 32 Newyorkmyke Jan 10th, 2012 at 1:04 pm

    Ok so in 1967 I see a 250 scrambler inMyrtle Beach. Until then 305 Dreams was all they had. The price was a lot less than any BSA at the time and it was totally AMAZING. I opened my American eyes right then, sold my beat up TR6 and my fabulous BSA Spitfire Hornet, bought a piece of crap Harley, worst mc on the planet, figured out how to keep it running, and I’ve never, or almost never, looked back. I was proud to say I’d rather push my Harley than ride a Honda THEN, but now the Harley is as good or better than anything made, the Dyna’s are under 15k, 1200s are incredible, there are other good American brands, so why do Americans insist on crushing our economy, trashing our culture, look at HD corporate thru a microscope if parts aren’t all made here or Harleys sold in another country are assembled there ( instead of re-assembled there, duh). I guess that’s all Ive got to say …. But really, what does it take to the pride in the USA that we have in our local football teams? I’m proud to sell Harley-Davidson motorcycles and it’s much more than just a business for me…..and thats not trashing other brands or people who make decisions I don’t agree with…I’m just saying…..
