EXTREME LINES. HEAD-TURNING LOOKS.

2018 Honda Fury ABS Review on Total Motorcycle:

The Fury appears to be something from the farthest fringes of the two-wheeled world, yet it’s a Honda, through and through. It’s 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 Fury is backed up with the same fit and finish, functionality, affordability, quality, and reliability that are built into every Honda.

I voted cool. Always thought it looked good. Would like to see an option with the vtx 1800 engine in it. I really dislike the 3.4 gallon tank though, do not want to be at the gas station that much or thinking about when I need to fuel up next.

Also voting Cool. The Fury is a gorgeous machine and Honda bulletproof, it'd be a lot of fun for tooling around on around town. I agree with Montana though, that 3.4 gallon tank just cripples the whole package. I mean, I get that a large tank would detract from the custom look, but it seems a shame to waste all that 1300cc power and straight-line stability with a 100 mile range.

I voted Awesome because the looks and the Honda reliability put it higher than cool for me, if there were a really Cool option I probably would have voted that. It really was a tough choice for me, maybe if it had more Awesome votes than Cool votes I might have said Cool.

COOL... These bikes are SO beautiful and I get butterflies every time I see one out in the wild. I'm a Honda fan for sure. However, I just don't know what I would DO with this bike? I'm not much of a bar hopper, and for even that this big bike seems excessive, and it would be a shame to put bags on it and road trip with it, (like the boys said, the gas capacity is a shame) so what is it for? Sure would be fun to scoot around on though.

I voted: Awesome

But the bike isn't for me, I wouldn't want to own one, but it is so interesting I'm like a moth to a lightbulb when one is parked. It is so unique still after all these years it is been on the market. Very, very little changes to the Fury over those years, but yet, it's still polarizing. Honda really took a step on the wide side when they decided to make the Fury and I really applaud any company that is brave enough to do that. Pushing the design of motorcycles is beneficial to us all.

Love it in the red-hot-red colour. 681lbs... I would love to know where did they hid that? (does the engine weigh 450lbs?).

The issue I see is; a custom bike with factory custom reliability, I can see the allure. I just don't see many on the roads...
