I have a hip injury and my new Softail Deluxe is making it act up even more.

Pictures are deceiving - the Fury certainly looks somewhat narrower than most Harleys - can anyone please confirm?

I like the Fury's styling - they are hitting showrooms in December over here in Australia.

Thanks

Dude...Have you considered going to the dealer & sitting on one? No ones description will tell you if your hip will be ok or not. Just a thought....

Have you considered a narrower seat or gas tank on your FXSTD?

:) Yes, probably a slow boat.

I found out yesterday Australia will have ABS standard so I guess that Honda Australia waited in order to get ABS production.

Thanks for everyone's replies!

From Honda Australia Motorcycle and Power Equipment Pty Ltd brocheur:

Up front, a stout 45mm fork handles suspension duties quite ably, and the distinctive
alloy wheels have a single powerful 336mm-diameter front disc brake complemented by a 296mm
brake disc in back. In addition, the VT1300CX is available with Honda’s Combined Brake System (CBS)
and optional Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) for sure-footed braking under a wide variety of road conditions.
In this system, the application of the rear brake pedal also applies pressure to the front brake caliper.
Brakes
Front: Single 336mm disc with twin-piston caliper
Rear: Single 296mm disc with single-piston caliper;

Optional ABS and CBS - Black color only

How wide is the Fury?

Well compaired to your Harley, I would say it's much more narrow. I owned a Suzuki m90 prior to buying the Fury. I'm sure the M90 I had was very close in size to your Harley, it was a big overweight beast, great on the highway, but not easy to manuver on the side streets. The Honda Fury is much better on the side streets, it's lighter, narrower and the seatheight is lower. I think you will find the Honda Fury will be a little better on your hip in my honest opinion.
