The Honda Fury is "the chopper you would build for yourself -- if you had a factory instead of a garage," says the Honda promotion for its chopper-style motorcycle. The Fury was designed to appeal to a new crowd, since this Honda is less of a traditional Honda bike and more of a new approach that stresses the total ride. The Fury can be ridden as-is or can be customized, depending upon the customer's wishes.
The Honda Fury contains a 1312-cc, liquid-cooled, 52-degree, V-twin engine. The bore is 89.5 mm, and the stroke is 104.3 mm. The fuel injection comes from a PGM-FI featuring an automatic enricher circuit with one 38-mm throttle body. The Honda Fury has a digital ignition with two spark plugs for each cylinder. The compression ratio for the Honda Fury is 9.2:1. The Valve train type is SOHC, featuring three valves on each cylinder.
The Honda Fury features a five-speed transmission and a shaft final drive that is "virtually maintenance-free," according to Honda.

The Honda Fury front suspension features 45-mm fork and 4 inches travel. The rear single-shock suspension features five-position spring preload adjustability and 3.7 inches travel. The standard brake system features a 336-mm disc with twin-piston caliper (front brake) and a 296-mm disc featuring a single-piston caliper (rear brake.) Front-tire specifications are 90/90-21, with rear-tire specs of 200/50-18.
The Honda Fury wheel base spans 71.24 inches between axles. The bike has a seat height of 26.7 inches.

Honda bases this number on an Environmental Protection Agency emission test, but actual mileage numbers will vary widely according to a number of factors including road condition, vehicle maintenance and cargo.
