Honda has announced a new bike… but when you see it you will be hard pressed to know it’s a Honda. Looking more like a custom chopper, the 2010 Honda Fury is going to surprise a lot of people when they find out that the company who lives off of Sportbike sales has produced something on the complete opposite edge of the spectrum… and it’s pretty cool!
Here’s what a recent Honda Press Release had to say:
“The Fury taps directly into the passion for riding; this is a machine built for people who have always longed for a chopper-style motorcycle. And for good reason–it’s got to be the ultimate as far as cool factor goes, a bike profile that’s instantly known and recognized. But this is also a chopper with a unique difference: you can simply ride it and enjoy, without all of the costs, compromises and headaches typically attached to such machines.”
Could it be that there is actually a classic looking chopper available with tried and true Honda reliability? Time will tell I guess. According to Motorcyle.com, the Fury will hit US Dealerships the latter part of March but before then you can catch a look at several Cycle World International Motorcycle Shows around the country.
