Here is a spy pic of the new Honda Fury chopper that will be unveiled Friday at the NYC motorcycle show. Not really a chopper if you ask me. Chromed or non chromed parts could change from this pic, but this bikes's lines match up with the earlier found US patent office pics. 1300 cc v-twin engine, radiator between front frame supports ahead of the engine. Honda touts it as being revolutionary, maybe revolutionary for Honda, but not revolutionary for motorcycles. This is from the VTXOA Fury board.

Not bashing Harley here. But if I wanted something to look like a Harley , I would get a Harley. Its not a bad looking ride for a Bar Hopper.
To me its like the White Kid with the Baggy Pants with the crotch around his ankles , hat sideways and the Jersey that 50 times too big for him and a Fake Diamond studded Dollar sign Necklace. A wannabe

This bike has no balls. Why not use the 1800 engine.
Single disc up front shows that the bike is low power and a light weight.

Another metric bike attempting to be a Harley, shame.....:wrong:
we'd all be all over, bashing the heck out of Harley attempting to build a all plastic, enclosed touring bike...why not stay with what you make well.
Harley doesn't make dirt bikes or quads....Honda need to leave the V-Twin bikes to HD, Victory and Indian.....not their cup of tea....Honda tried with the VTX1800, Rune, etc...nice bikes, but not the sales they needed.

If you want a Harley, buy one....if you want a Wing, buy one.....while imitation is he sincerest form of flattery....it's still just a imitation.....

Harley didn't make it, they bought out a Itialian complany, Armiche( spelling?) and imported them, POS.....golfcarts were the same I believe...even owned Holiday Rambler motorhomes....Harley has been into quite a few different ventures...but I don;t think they made them...just the big old V-Twins, and they seam to go back to what they know best....as Honda should..\

Yes HD was owned by AMF at one time, then the company leaders bought it back....the AMF days were not good....:eek:4:

I agree. it's funny some will get upset when people bash Harley's, but then go ahead and bash the metric cruisers. It's funny but when the cruisers are compared in road tests it's the metrics in most cases that win the comparisons. Some just don't get it...not everybody wants a Harley... there are some very nice cruisers out there these days if people would take the blinders off, they would see that.
