Yeah, "Honda reliability"? maybe because they never change their design's and keep the same motor's forever. This so called "reliability" may have been perdominate 10yrs ago. Oh dang did I just agree with Seruzawa?

You should buy one then, who cares what other people think.

At 59 hp (not even 61!) the name "Fury" might be a bit overdone. Maybe Honda should call the thing the "Very Annoyed". Or maybe the "Very Angry And Will Write A Stern Letter To You." How about the Honda "Don't Make Me Stop The Car"?

Well, that's progress. Maybe some day you will agree with me that sportbikers should spend $1200 on track training before spending it on an exhaust.

Dood? I "do" agree with that statment, for certain riders. Now unless that 1200.00 is going to make "that" perticular rider reach better lap times, then it is worth it. See not all riders are the squid's you portray them to be, some sportbike rider's can actually use their bikes to where a 1200.00 dollar exhaust is warranted.

The problem you may be experiencing is that the only rider's you see are the one's on the street. The percentage rate of squid's on the street is endless.

Maybe they meant "furry" like Barney?

Cripes. That's 2 agreements. Something wrong here.

I'd rather see a Honda "custom" built around a big V4 kind of like the old V65 Magna.
Good catch on the lame straight off a VLX600 looking shaft drive. That is a mortal sin on a style is everything bike. The Rune may outsell this thing.

Probably more like "furry" as in "Has sex with small stuffed-animals"..........
