2014 Honda Fury

Posted on by  

The 2014 Honda Fury continues to impress us with its spectacular appearance. Being without a doubt one of the best looking custom-styled motorcycles in its class, the 2014 Honda Fury is propelled by a 52-degree 1,312cc injected v-twin engine which delivers a fuel consumption of 45 MPG. The unit transfers its power to the rear wheel through a five-speed gearbox with shaft final drive.

The motorcycle weighs 663 lbs and its wheel base measures 71.2"- long (1,808mm) which not only gives it a sleek profile but also helps it stay better planted on its wheels at both high and low speeds.

Talking about speed, it is kept in check by a set of big front 336mm and rear 296mm rotors which can be combined with an optional ABS system for extra stopping safety.

Available from January 2014 the new Honda Fury is offered with a base price of $13,390.

Overview

Honda Fury

Honda’s radical Fury is a chopper like no other. Not only is it easily the most distinctive custom we’ve ever built, but it’s comparable to one-off custom-house choppers costing 10 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 Fury is pure chopper, and that means it’s all about its engine—a torque-heavy 1312cc 52° V-twin that sounds and feels as good as it looks.

We’ve got an armful of cool, classic chopper-style accessories to help you really personalize your new ride.

2014 Honda Fury Features and Benefits:

Honda Fury
  • 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.
  • Long Rake: The Fury features a raked-out front end and a 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.
  • Brakes: A single powerful 336mm-diameter front disc brake is complemented by a 296mm rear disc brake. An ABS version is also available.
  • High-Tensile Steel Frame: The Fury’s high-tensile steel frame is the centerpiece of this machine’s open, minimalist chopper styling. It’s functional too, delivering smooth ride quality and responsive handling.
  • Fuel Injection: Forget about fiddling with a choke—the Fury’s fuel-injection system means no-hassle start-ups on cold mornings or at high altitudes.
  • 1312cc V-Twin Engine: The powerful 1312cc, 52° V-twin engine with a single-pin crankshaft and dual balancers has plenty of torque—and the feel only a V-twin can deliver.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Verdict

Honda Fury

After it made its big debut in 2010 the Honda Fury has managed to make a pretty nice impression among custom-style bike lovers.

In terms of appearance and built quality you won’t have many complains, but the big question is: how does it ride? Well despite its chopper stance, the Honda Fury rides far better than you might guess. You can move around without too much fuss despite the aggressive rake angle and the suspensions are more than capable to keep you safe from various bumps.

Even if the motorcycle offers the ability to transport two people, we’ll suggests you to consider it more like a solo rider type bike because the rear passenger position is not exactly comfortable for anything else than very short travels.

The bike’s engine delivers around 89 lb/ft of torque, so don’t expect to sporty performances. However, the engine is fairly smooth, delivers a decent feedback and pulls strongly giving you a feel of confidence.

As far as equipments are concerned, the Honda Fury finds itself at the low end of the spectrum, being a pretty basic motorcycle without all the bells and whistles found at its more upscale rivals.
