Hello everyone. I currently own a 1994 Honda Magna (my proflie pic.) that is really a great ride. I am really considering purchasing the new Fury from my local dealer however I have a few questions. First, I have read a rumor that the bike is governed at 100mph. Do you think there will be a future mod to allow this new ride to tear it up? I have read some dyno readings that say the Fury only has around 50-55 horses with about 70+ of torque, does anyone have the real scoop I can trust? I have been excited about this bike since I first saw the advertisements and I am a Big Honda Enthusiast. I am considering selling my current ride to help purchase the Fury but I am afraid that the Fury might not have the power that my Magna has. If anyone has any insight please don't hesitate to reply.

there is a reason why this bike has a speed limiter on it ! It was designed to be a cruiser, not a sport bike. If you read the manual it says not to exceed 85 mph. I have 3,500. miles on my fury now and i know from experience that this bike can get out of control very easily if you are not careful !

Being carfull is improtant. I ride the intersate often and I have cruised at 75-80mph (with the flow of traffic on I-85/40). Is the fury not stable enough for that? It does weigh alot, and it has a good footprint, I just thought Honda would have desinged it with 75mph interstate speed limits in mind. I figured the 100mph limit was Big Brother trying to slow people down. Thanks for the information. Predator, I am excited to see the results! kingdave, thanks for the info. What is the "break in mialage" on the Fury?

I've cruised the interstate regularly on mine at 70-75 mph and feel very secure doing so. I don't think I'd go much faster than that but I would'nt on anything with 2 wheels.

I have made the recent transition from a R1 to the fury and at first I thought the same as you. The power concerns are gone now and I regularly jump up to 100 or so on familiar stretches. It actually feels more satisfying than 160+ on my old bike. I am not a speed demon anymore, I just like to get on the throttle every now and then. I have never tested a magna, but I am positive that the fury will not let you down.

The Fury will cruise at 80 no problem, but this is a stretched out, raked out cruiser. It's not going to be any where near as stable as your Magna. There is a lot less room for mental lapses.

On the performance front, that v4 is a sweet engine. I'm a little partial since I also ride a 2002 VFR. The Fury delivers more torque across the board, but it's likley not quicker than your Magna anywhere. I believe the Fury is a full second slower than the Magna through the quarter. The Fury is NOT a power cruiser.

For me, the Fury was an awsome addition, but it wouldn't satisfy me as my only bike.

Ive been riding gixxers all my life I'm tired of doing 135 MPH wondering if I'm doing to be ground beef or if a cop catches me always looking over my shoulder i wanted something that looks cool sounds mean and rides like a champ so the fury satisfied my need.
