2012 Honda Fury Motorcycle

Honda’s radical Fury is a chopper like no other. Not only is it easily the most distinctive custom honda has ever built, but it’s comparable to one-off custom-house choppers costing ten times as much—except that it probably works and rides twice as well.

Long, lean and mean, stretching nearly six feet from axle to axle, this machine is a real head-turner. And once you settle into the saddle, turn the key and fire up that big 1312cc V-twin, you’ll know this is the bike you’ve been dreaming about.

The soul of a chopper. The heart of a Honda.

There’s no mistaking that the Fury is all about the way it looks, sounds and feels—and the way all these sensations make you feel when you’re riding it. But like all Hondas, the Fury is also a showcase of engineering, boasting innovative features like Programmed Fuel Injection, custom-cast wheels, specially designed shaft drive, and, of course, that monster 1312cc V-twin. Call it the perfect marriage of style and substance.

Features:

1312cc V-twin Engine
Powerful 1312cc, 52-degree V-twin engine with a single-pin crankshaft and dual balancers has plenty of torque, and the feel only a V-twin can deliver.

Fuel Injection
Forget about fiddling with a choke—the Fury’s fuel-injection system means no-hassle startups on cold mornings or at high altitudes.

High-Tensile Steel Frame
The Fury’s high-tensile steel frame is the centerpiece to this machine’s open, minimalist, chopper styling. It’s functional too, delivering smooth ride quality and responsive handling.

Front and Rear Disc Brakes
A single powerful 336mm-diameter front disc brake is complemented by a 296mm brake disc in back. An ABS version is also available.

Long Rake
A raked-out front end and condensed, hard-tail look to the rear, plus a stretched wheelbase. And that long wheelbase is no illusion—the Fury stretches a full 71.2 inches between axles.

Chopper Styling
The Fury is one of the most authentic, radically styled custom motorcycles that Honda has ever produced. It features a teardrop seamless fuel tank, an ingenious single-shock rear suspension system and an aluminum swingarm.

Low Seat
The Fury’s super-low 26.9-inch seat height is an integral design element that fits in behind the slim and long fuel tank.

Shaft Final Drive
The shaft final drive is quiet, clean, and has been uniquely integrated into the overall design.

2 into 2 Exhaust
The Fury’s engine features specially designed camshafts that also add to the unique V-twin sound and power-pulse exhaust sensations.

Unique Wheels and Tires
A fat 200-series rear tire is paired with a slim 21-inch front tire, both wrapped around distinctive alloy wheels.

The Fury is a bike that makes you just want to stand back and stare. Oh sure, you’ll definitely want to ride it, but only after taking in its gorgeous styling, long, swooping lines, and swooped-out chopper front end.

And when that time comes to throw a leg over this too-cool machine and thumb its starter, you’ll have two Fury models to choose from: honda’s standard (if you can call anything about the Fury “standard”) stunner, or for riders wanting that added level of stopping control in less than ideal conditions, Honda also offers the optional anti-lock braking-equipped Fury ABS.
