Noticed lots of Honda adds but none showing or mentioning the Fury's. Checked several dealers, still with fury's on the showroom floors. Asked my dealer about 2011 Fury, said he didn't know. Any answers? :confused:

Hodaka was a joint Japanese and American company that manufactured motorcycles in the 1960s and 1970s.
The company also went by the name PABATCO, for Pacific Basin Trading Company.[1] Its headquarters were in the rural town of Athena, Oregon. Pabatco was owned by Shell Oil Company from 1965 to 1978.[2] The name Hodaka is rumored to have been borrowed from a mountain near the factory. After opening its doors in 1964, Hodaka is credited by some with starting the trail bike craze in the United States. Hodaka models included the Ace 90, Ace 100, Wombat, Combat Wombat, Super Combat, Super Rat, Dirt Squirt, Road Toad and Thunderdog.
In the late 1970s, a combination of events led to the demise of Hodaka. Falling US dollar exchange rates against the Japanese yen, a shift in demand from dirt bikes to larger road bikes, and general economic weakness fatally wounded the company. Hodaka attempted a purchase of Fuji Heavy Industries —the Japanese company which manufactured most Hodaka engines—but were rebuffed. Around 1980, Hodaka ceased all operations. Its tooling was later sold to the Korean company Daelim.

LOL The bike on which I learned to ride was an old Hodaka dirt bike. From there I stepped up to a YZ 100 which was an awesome bike. I think Yamaha makes a good dirt bike, or at least they used to.

Ill believe it when I see an official Honda Statement on the sale or death of the Chopper line.

Looked at Honda web site and there is no news of ANY sale or death of the 1 year chopper, which they will have to make parts for the next 7 years.

Tech the 2011 are out because after March april or may they need to move to 2011 model year. You always sell ahead of years, meaning 2010 comes out 2009. 2011 out in 2010 so on and so forth. rarely have I seen a MSO stating same year built as the Model year. IMSO!

It's your area that you are in! Seriously, in WI, most likely they won't be selling like hot cakes. Here in SD, they sell plenty of them... I am starting to run into at least 1 random Fury every couple of weeks here.

They are selling good, no worries, especially with people starting to win competitions with them, interest will only grow, not decline... :rolleyes:

I hear Hodakas bid has been rejected in favor of a larger bid from Harley Davidson ! Seems HD wants to get in on the FURY craze since Honda is bowing out, They feel that there name will add to the marketing of the Fury...
