The Honda Fury which was revealed at the start of 2009 is a chopper style motorcycle powered by a fuel injected, 1312 cc, 52-degree, V-twin engine.

Choppers have been a part of the motorcycling scene for decades, but for the most part they've occupied a niche on the edges of the sport. The first such machines were crudely constructed home-builds with a reputation for being unreliable and uncomfortable to ride. Since then choppers have evolved into rolling art, with true customs commanding a very high price. Part of the attraction of the Honda Fury is the fact that it looks the part but is backed up by Honda's extensive dealer network and the reliability which comes from major manufacturers.

The most obvious feature of the Honda Fury is its raked-out chopper styling: high-mount steering head that gives the frame a see-through, open-air look with plenty of space between the tank/upper frame and the front cylinder head; slim and long fuel tank perched up high; ultra-low 26.7-inch seat height; massive rake; wide 200-series rear tire paired with a slim 21-inch front wheel; a compact, hard-tail look to the rear end; and a stretched wheelbase.

When creating the Honda Fury the design focus started with the high steering head, exaggerated rake and open look to the front end. To achieve this appearance while also making sure the ride quality and engineering reliability remains high, the development of the Fury required a significant amount of communication and cooperation between the styling team in the USA at Honda Research Americas (HRA) and the Honda engineers at HGA in Japan. Original sketches and clay mockups were tweaked and refined in countless ways, in order to satisfy both the styling and engineering demands.

For example, to maintain the remarkably uncluttered look between the front cylinder and the front downtube/radiator area, the top radiator hose is hidden away beneath the front valve cover - a patented idea that illustrates the efforts expended on maintaining the airy look of the front end. Other examples are the long, slim and voluptuous look of the fuel tank, which had to be adjusted and modified repeatedly along with handlebar shape and size to allow the appropriate amount of steering clearance when the front wheel is turned from stop-to-stop.

In similar fashion, the rear end of the bike had to look like a hand built chopper. The LED taillight was selected specifically because it does not affect the shape of the rear fender, which also lacks visible fender stays - all for the purpose of giving the rear fender a simple, clean and elegant shape.
