Why does the Sabre look so much like the Fury? At a quick glance its hard to tell the difference? Why would Honda do this? They even advertise the Sabre as "Fury derived"???

Why would anyone buy a Sabre over a Fury?

It is a wise business decision by Honda actually. The virtual overnight popularity. The devoted owners and fans of the Fury. This large Fury community that has popped up in literally months. Honda would be stupid not to diversify the line and make more options available to hungry consumers. I don't like them myself. They seem too cookie-cutter, which is one of the reasons I was drawn to the Fury. Other manufacturers use the same frame for multiple motorcycle lines. Look at the V-Star line from Yamaha. Or the Victory bikes. They all look relatively like another bike within the company, at least to me they do. Honda is making a good business choice by broadening the "Fury line." I know a couple of people that really like the looks of the other bikes Honda is rolling out.

The Sabre is a "pro street" version of the Fury. Some people don't like a chopper and prefer the lower neck height of a pro street so Honda want to catch those buyers as well.

The Stateline and Interstate are "normal" cruisers but with the Fury styling.

It is a good thing to have Honda release an expanded range based on the Fury as it will mean more after market parts and lower prices for those parts.

I agree with CoolTrukka and think he hit the nail right on the head. It a very well thought out business decisions by Honda to capitalism on the popular fury design. It's a very smart business move to help attract more consumers to the Honda name by giving them other option choices along the same line to fit each consumers own style and needs. Its the same reason why an ice cream company make different flavors ice cream they don't care what flavor your eating just as long as you buying their ice cream! Different strokes for different folks but I still like the Fury the best.

I know, I know... we are almost all partial to the Fury and the handling and looks and etc... But, somebody should at least test drive the thing to give initial results... :eek:

The ECU probably still is governed. They all run the same engine. If the gains posted in another thread (http://www.furyforums.com/forum/fury-lounge/2312-2010-honda-stateline-porting-more-hp.html) are correct then I just want the ECU for the gains and possible smoother power band. I don't wanna go fast, I just wanna get to my slowpoke speed quicker.
