2010 Honda Fury

Interesting. Not my cup of tea but interesting none the less. Adding FI to the 1300 is good news for Honda and will most certainly increase VTX sales. The Fury is a nitch bike but it will bring folks into the show room and increase sales of other bikes. With a 3.2 gallon tank it is all but useless for anything but group riding to some local event and lookie-looking, but that is all most choppers do anyway! @40 mpg you are bone-dry at 128 miles so it is in the same range as a p-nut tank Sportster. The fuel low light will be on at something less than 100 miles. Ride it hard and max range will decrease to well below 100 miles and that ain't good.
The bigger 1800 motor would certainly be more desirable. Chopper riders want huge power and the 1300 ain't gonna cut it. It is a bold step for Honda and will open new doors for customizers. The first mod I expect to see is this frame with the 1800 cc motor. Let the fun begin!
