7. 2010 Honda Fury Review


In a road test, again penned by E-i-C Duke, the 2010 Honda Fury cuts a fine figure in our road test. Yes, a chopper-styled motorcycle does seem to go against Honda’s staid image, but the Fury’s sharp styling intrigued many of you.

Honda clearly did its homework while delivering a chopper with just enough space below the steering head. Additionally, the color-matched frame and the stylized gas tank forged an image-enhancing look that is pretty risky for a conservative manufacturer like Honda. The 32.0-degree fork suits the chopper style, as does the close-fitting front fender. The Fury looked like no other factory cruiser on the road and was a bargain at $12,999.

    Four out of the top ten were (gulp) cruisers?!
    No wonder JB isn’t allowed to call them StoooPid any more.

      Haha given that Harley still controls more than half of the entire USA motorcycle market, I’m not at all surprised that their bikes and the cheaper alternatives made the list. The big surprise here to me was the popularity of the monster review. Interesting that everyone wanted to check it out but they’re still not a huge seller.

      Maybe it’s the relatively low (compared to Japanese alternatives) price/performance ratio and relatively high cost of ownership. Or maybe it just looks so good that people wanna check it out but they don’t buy because Americans insist on fairings.

      For me, I’m in love with it. But if Yamaha decides to bring us ABS on the fz 07, I think I would buy it over the monster. The new Honda cbr650f is nice as well, but a bit porky for my taste. Decisions, decisions.

    How many views did this article garner? That wasn’t mentioned anywhere, and I’m just curious. I’ve been a fan since before the $11.94 subscription days, and was one of the few who actually paid the subscription. BTW, since that time you’ve really progressed nicely. The video production quality of late has been really outstanding (e.g. the Harley Livewire video). Keep up the good work.

      I have the listing in order of ranking but not the raw numbers. What specific article were you asking about?
