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.
