Honda Unleashes a Fury

    Honda may have a reputation for coloring within the lines, but its custom-inspired Fury chopper pushes the edge of the brand’s comfort zone. The Fury wears a low-slung 26.7-inch saddle, a teardrop tank that arcs over an expansive frame, and a 1,312-cc V-twin power plant. De rigueur chopper details include canted forks, copious chrome, and a hulking engine that dominates the bike’s elongated silhouette—which happens to be the longest wheelbase of any motorcycle in Honda’s production history.

    Chopper traditionalists might scoff at the radiator nestled just ahead of the liquid-cooled engine and the shaft drive that diverts power to the rear wheel replacing an old-school chain. But for enthusiasts seeking a reliable, dramatically raked ride without the headaches associated with independent builders, Honda’s Fury might be the simplest way to satisfy your inner Easy Rider fantasies.
