Hello fury fans. Do you guys agree that Honda Should鈥檝e Done changes, this year?
it鈥檚 been 12 year and they only change colors... 馃檮馃槨

WE NEED: (1)1800cc engine
(2) lower and more curved rear fender
(3) digital speedometer
(4)i ntegrated front radiator spoiler
(5) LED front headlight
those are my opinion

( and I know I can do this changes myself but it would be part of the new line of the new gen of fury鈥檚 )

because this year they went bananas with that color. Who鈥檚 gonna take you serious on a yellow motorcycle 馃槀馃槀馃槀
Yes I agree. I have the 2013 model love the motorcycle and always liked Honda. But it would be awesome to have a 1800

The 1800cc engine is also taller so it would not fit the frame, requires a larger radiator and if I remember correctly it uses a two pin crank so it won't sound so much like an American V-Twin. The two pin crank would be smoother and produce less vibration which while technically better is not to many rider's taste. I read somewhere that the 1800 is not much more powerful than the 1300 such that the power to weight ends up being the same or similar. A sixth gear would be more useful for highway use.

Agreed about the 1800 that Honda currently or historically has in the VTX.... but I would love to see an 1800 that's really just our 1300, but larger bore... no other changes except what's necessary for the larger jugs, and more intake/exhaust flow...

6-speed for sure. I still find myself trying to grab that 6th gear on the freeway occasionally...

Have to agree. I am not a fan of how they sound.

Still better than any EV.

I would go for the 6 speed and better appearance for the rear fender. A 1800 with larger radiator and more frame/bodywork will just add to the cost. Next thing you know your getting halfway to the HD price range.

Half the cost, but still 10x the value and 100x reliability... :D :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

It's easy to forget just how much of a value our Furys are when it comes to TCO compared to the HDs...

I鈥檝e heard bad things with the 1800 Honda puts out. I heard the 1300 is a much better engine in comparison, I鈥檝e found the 1300 adequate except it would鈥檝e been a better riding bike with a 6 speed trans
100 percent on the 6 speed
I forgot to put that option too 馃槀

Is it my imagination or did Honda tighten up the ABS lines to the frame on the 2022? I always liked the clean look of the non ABS version and wished the ABS had tidier brake line routing.
Top pic on attached PDF is non ABS and yellow is the 2022 vs blue one which is older.
I have a 2019 ABS and I really like the linked brakes, but the front brake lines look like they made them ugly on purpose, sort of a passive sarcasm. There is really no reason the to be separated and hung out in the open.

Love the suggestions. I would like to have the following:
Lower profile turn signals and brake light
Tach available on the digital odometer
More comfortable seat. I think this is keeping more buyers away.
And a Train horn!馃ぃ

This is all stuff you can do yourself. Mount those effin megaphone horns right on the handlebar.

Overdrive gear would be great, especially with a simple OD light like they had on early '80s CM450s (and I imagine other bikes, that's just one I rode).

I don't think they need a sixth gear. I think they can just change the ratios on 4th and turn the 5th one in OD...
