Has anyone seen production numbers? It would be very interesting to see
1) how many are made
2) Sold in the US
3) production by color

These have been out for almost a year now and I hardly ever see one and I have
only had mine 2 weeks and I get compliments everywhere I go.

It is well known that Honda keeps a tight lip on the numbers and there was a thread a few week back about this specific topic, http://www.furyforums.com/forum/hon.../2396-wondering-how-many-furys-sold-date.html.

Let's just put it this way, we all know that the Fury is popular and that maybe this forum represents 1/10th the number of Fury's sold, if that... You consider that there's 330 million people in the U.S. and let's be fair and say half of those aren't even old enough to drive, that still 165 million people in the U.S. alone.

Take the 2000 people that have registered on this forum *10, 20,000 bikes sold (probably engrossing the numbers a little bit) ... Now, you have .000125% of this countries population riding Fury's, you can see why it's hard to spot some of us, unless you are actually on this forum and active or in a bigger city, where the odds are much better that you will see a Fury on the road.

Harley, has been around for over 100 years so you will see more of them, also in the mix are other manufacturer's and also Honda's other makes and models... so yes... You will undoubtedly see more of those on the road at just about every glance.

In Germany, the Fury (VT 1300 CX) comes the beginning of the year are in the trade! Overall, only 75 of which was delivered to the dealer!

I guess in Germany were still only 25 units sold! The bike is very expensive for us!

14,285 Euro without ABS and 14,885 Euro including ABS (19150 - 19950 Dollar). 90% buy the bike with ABS.

We also have only two colors: blue and black.

I think the Fury is a very nice chopper! Because the average motorcyclist is 45 years old, it will not be many buyers.

A Harley Street Bob is almost 1500 euros cheaper!

In Germany, many older motorcyclists buy a BMW or a Harley. Some who do not have enough money to buy a Kawasaki Vulcan 900. This bike was the best selling motorcycle in 2009.

That's pretty cool to hear, considering the price tag there... thanks for the info!

Here in Australia the recommended retail price is AU $19990 plus dealer delivery, registration & 3rd party personal insurance so that all come to $21,400 on the road. We only have the ABS version and two colours, blue & black.

I was able to get a better deal from my local Honda dealer but all the other dealers in Sydney just quoted the full price and weren't interested in negotiating. It's still 10 to 14K cheaper than a stock HD soft tail but it is the most expensive Honda cruiser in Australia.

I am waiting for clueless to give us these numbers in excel spreadsheet and graph format :) He probably knows how many people worked the line at a given time too and what they had for lunch :)
That is way beyond my capabilities.

Honda won't even say how may GLs were made, and those were made in the USA. I did read an article today that Honda had sold 400,000 units in the US, and 11,000,000 in Asia, that is were the real market for m/c and scooters is. And I bet not 1 Fury was sold there

Bump...

Dirtdobber-

Anyone heard/know any Numbers yet?

If Honda considers it "proprietary"... have they ever released production information on any of their bikes? And if so, then at what time (years past) do they release such information?

This is an old thread about Fury numbers started 3 years ago. Production numbers are still hard to obtain, even now with rumors of the Fury model coming to an end, does anyone know how many have been produced since 2009?

A month ago when I bought mine here in Japan, I discovered they are all considered "imported" and have to have a certificate for the frame to get licensed. In all JAPAN there were only 20 or so used for sale. Sorry, I bet you thought the guy in Japan might know something. Lol. And virtually no aftermarket parts available, I couldn't even get a sissy bar from the Honda certified parts supplier.

Retail price for a brand new was ¥1,490,000. Not including tax or dealer fees or the 1200 bucks it costs for a license plate here.

Got my 2012 with 263km w/ a few parts(wanky exhaust) Moriwaki, and few chrome bits. For ¥1,100,00 including one year factory coverage and one year license and one year all Japan 24hrs a day road service(I know it's not a Harley, I won't need a tow truck).it was a dealers test ride bike.:D:D:D

In my most recent experience(past Year),FedEx ain't what it used to be. I bought a computer on eBay & I watched the FedEx driver just drop it over my 5.5' chain link fence onto the concrete while texting on his phone. The laptop was damaged & the red tape to get re-reimbursed was such a joke, I gave up. I went out to the driver & he said,"Well, you can call the company,later".

To be honest, they are all as bad as each other in my book... We used to use UPS but they degenerated into becoming known as the Utter Pile of S**T courier, so ended up using DHL..

Then we sent a parcel to Turkey and instead of dropping it at the customer site, they left it at the airport and told the company to collect it. We asked them to drop it at the customers, as that was what was written on the destination label, to be told that because someone signed for it at the airport it's no longer their business!! Needless to say that the goods were too late in arriving so we had to pay for it ourselves to get it returned again!!

They are all a joke!

Oh Brothers your not helping me here, lol :eek::eek::eek:

I'm really worried about my goodies. First parts order and it goes bad...:(

Guess I should have ordered a paperweight to test the waters instead of $2k+ in parts I actually want, lol.
