2012 Honda Fury | Preview

2012 Honda Motorcycle

Introduced in 2010, the Honda Fury looked like anything but a Honda. From its low slung styling to the radically-raked front end, the Fury became the first chopper ever built by the Japanese marquee, a company known for its performance CBRs and (LARGE) touring machines, such as the Gold Wing.

And for 2012, Honda continues to offer the Fury (VT1300X) as a carry-over model from 2011, with optional ABS; the only thing new about the 2012 Honda Fury is it’s offered in a new aggressive color scheme: Matte Black paint with a red frame.

The 2012 Fury is powered by a fuel-injected, 1312cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin with a single-pin crankshaft and dual balancers. This brings smooth, muscular power to the Fury’s extreme design, one that features long lines, a 200mm-rear tire and much space between the engine’s front cylinder and the frame.

But if the designs not radical enough, Honda offers loads of Honda Genuine Accessories, from fork nut covers to a billet master-cylinder cap.
