Honda, LTD less likely to go bankrupt.

The Fury obviously has a bigger dealer network. It also has a smaller gas tank. The Victory has more power, like you said. It also has a 2-year warranty (they might even give you a 5-year warranty), versus 1 year for the Honda (though you probably won't need it). I love Hondas, but I'd get the Victory.

The one you Want. Anything other, you'll question your purchase.

Get the Fury. Japan needs the income to fix that nuke mess. Besides, it's a better looking bike with 100X the dealer support, costs $3k less, and has a great aftermarket.

Bottom line: you buy a bike like these for styling, and the Fury will turn far more heads than the Vic.

Buy the Victory, they need the business. Besides, better a sister in a wh*rehouse than a brother on a Honda

Get the one that makes you want ride and to go out in the garage at 8:00 at night, just to do a little tinkering. Whatever floats your boat. Both are solid reliable machines.

I tend to like the Victory bikes as they place an emphasis on performance (handling and power), and I like that it is an American company. I admittedly am not "cool enough" to ride a Harley, so be default if I ever buy a bike in this segment, it will be a Vic.

If you live in the USA, Victory, no doubt.

Victory, by far! The Vic is waaaay cooler than the Furry... errr... I mean Fury.
