Just some info i ran across in case anybody interested ??





We understand perfectly if you think your eyeballs are lying to you. Indeed, the 2011 Honda Fury VT1300CX appears to be something from the farthest fringes of the two-wheeled world. Yet it’s a Honda, through and through. Here we have the rolling incarnation of the pure, undiluted chopper essence, a machine that simply looks right, sounds right and goes straight to the heart of radical enthusiasts. Yet despite the extreme lines and head-turning looks, the 2011 Honda Fury VT1300CX is backed up with the same fit and finish, functionality, affordability, quality and reliability built into every Honda. Who would have ever thought it possible?

Witness the Fury — hands down, the most distinctive custom Honda has ever created. Long, lean and mean, stretching nearly six feet from axle to axle, this machine literally screams with chopper style. And once you’ve saddled up and fired that big 1312cc V-twin, and felt its throbbing pulse beneath you, you’ll know you’ve experienced a motorcycle like none other. Ever.

A Masterpiece of Form and Function

Make no mistake, the Fury is all about the way it looks, sounds and feels—and the way all these sensations make you feel when you’re riding it. But like all Hondas, the Fury is also a showcase of engineering, boasting innovative features like Programmed Fuel Injection, custom-cast wheels, specially designed shaft drive, and, of course, that monster 1312cc V-twin. Call it the perfect marriage of style and substance

The Beast Within.

You won’t find a V-twin more righteous than the Fury’s, a 52º, 1312cc brute, putting out heaps of power and torque—and a sound that is pure V-twin soul.

It’s all the rage.

If you’re looking for the buzz on this bad machine, then look no further than Facebook,YouTube, and Twitter, and see what the world is saying about the Fury.

Unleash your inner Fury.

Wanting to add your own personal touch to your Fury is a given. And that’s why we’ve got an armful of cool, classic chopper-style accessories to help get you started.

Features

New for 2011

- Pearl White and Matte Orange Metallic colors join Dark Red Metallic.


1300cc V-twin Engine – Powerful 1312cc, 52-degree V-twin engine with a single-pin crankshaft and dual balancers has plenty of torque, and the feel only a V-twin can deliver.

Fuel Injection – Forget about fiddling with a choke—the Fury’s fuel-injection system means no-hassle startups on cold mornings or at high altitudes.

High-Tensile Steel Frame – The Fury’s high-tensile steel frame is the centerpiece to this machine’s open, minimalist, chopper styling. It’s functional too, delivering smooth ride quality and responsive handling.

Exhaust – The Fury’s engine features specially designed camshafts that also add to the unique V-twin sound and power-pulse exhaust sensations.

Shaft Final Drive – The shaft final drive is quiet, clean, and has been uniquely integrated into the overall design.

Unique Wheels and Tires – A fat 200-series rear tire is paired with a slim 21-inch front tire, both wrapped around distinctive alloy wheels.

Low Seat – The Fury’s super-low 26.7-inch seat height is an integral design element that fits in behind the slim and long fuel tank.

Colors – The Fury comes in three outstanding colors: Dark Red Metallic, Pearl White and Matte Orange Metallic.

Chopper Styling – The Fury is one of the most authentic, radically styled custom motorcycles that Honda has ever produced, featuring an ingenious single-shock rear suspension system with an aluminum swingarm.

Long Rake – A raked-out front end and condensed, hard-tail look to the rear, plus a stretched wheelbase. And that long wheelbase is no illusion—the Fury stretches a full 71.2 inches between axles.

Brakes – A single powerful 336mm-diameter front disc brake is complemented by a 296mm brake disc in back.

Looks like he was trying to be helpful. Incase anyone missed the other thread this could be some good info for them. Thanks for the info.

On a side note, if you go to the honda page and look at the images. the red is a 2010. You can tell because it doesnt have the new fenders. Click between the red and the other 2 and you can see the diff. Also, to me, it looks like the gas tank is larger on the new models compared to the red.

Honda also released the new colors on the interstate. Black and the same red as the fury. If any wanted to color match the side covers, I bet they will interchange.

So sorry you are colorblind and cannot see the red. If you could then you would know its the best and thats why its the only one to make the 2011 cut. Honda just could not sell enough of the other colors and also ran out of primer for that non painted one.

Or not enough people thought red was a good color from 2010 and they had to carry over the old non selling 2010 bikes. ;):D

The fenders and tank look apsolutely identical to me, the white and orange are just slightly zoomed in shots. Other than the colors, the bikes are identical based on the specs.

Kudos to Honda for not staying with the same 'ol same 'ol. Besides, if you want a 2010 color, you probably dont have to look far as there are still plenty left on the floor.

Confounded are ya, well so am I! Ya always have a Black. The Blue was the top selling color, get rid of it?:confused: The Matte and Black were 2 and 3, tied in sales, so lets get rid of all three. Silver being retired I can understand, but keeping the Red I don't. So, we now have a Orange Crush Matte, a Basic White and a Black Cherry Red, that didn't sell to well.:confused: Confounded are ya, well so am I!:confused::confused::confused::confused:

Just goes to show that Honda is watching. The first Release Edition of the Scion xB ( the orange i have ) with all the extra goodies cost an extra $700 or so. Over the years the items have been less and less, yet the price for the Release Series has gone up to as much as 3K$ more!
