My Vmax which is 145hp on spec has 110 to 120hp on rear wheel it also employs the sturdy shaft drive. the shaft on a motorcycle is a hp robber at the tire! The VMAX has same issue...I still love my VMAX for raw power nothing compares. Its just not as comfy and now where near as cool as my Fury...All I can tell you is that it's the stoutest 37 rwhp I've ever sat on then. I'm calling bullsh!t though, superflow dyno numbers show around 55 rwhp.

How about Motorcyclist Magazines test ratings; Honda Tech Specifications - Motorcyclist Magazine55hp? no seriously?
I saw the 52hp crankshaft rating on the MSO.
BUT 37hp is what they rated getting to the ground....no kidding!
Get off it buddy...Cycleworld does the comparison so no need to hide behind mommas skirt here. I work on all sorts of bikes and never said I wouldn't buy a Fury...nor have I put them down.....seems like you might be a bit nervous?How about Motorcyclist Magazines test ratings; Honda Tech Specifications - Motorcyclist Magazine
which seem to jive with the other dyno test, and the south african honda website (which i think i read about on this site) ratings of 74Hp and 97Ft/lbs at the crank.
my question to you, sfc rick, is what's your purpose here?
in your other posts, you've stated you would never buy a fury, and you seem to only be interested in bashing on the fury, and tellings us how cool your yamaha "high end" bikes are.
so if you don't own a fury, and have nothing positive to contribute, why don't you go to a yamaha forum and talk about yamaha's?
i'd like to see a copy of the alledged MSO that states the fury has 52Hp at the crank. honda states on it's website that it doesn't publish these numbers. Frequently Asked Questions: Products - Honda Powersports is honda lying?
in any case, a quick check with a 1/4 mile horsepower calculator will reveal that it takes a lot more than 37Hp to move this bike and rider through the traps at 95.3MPH.
this bike wasn't intended to be a power cruiser, and there is little point in comparing it to one, so get off it. it's got more than enough power to cruise up and down the strip and draw all the attention away from your raider
(Which, in case you aren't aware, are backhanded compliments, and are the equivalent of me saying "That's a nice Raider you have there, if you like Yamahas and garish paint jobs".)...they (furys) are a great looking bike for the money... nor will you have the quality...nor will the rims be chromed easily...The amount of plastic would make tupperware very proud and Revell couldn't even make a plastic bike as well as this one.... I like the bike personally, even if I don't want to own one.
