2014 Honda Fury ABS VT13CXAE/VT1300CXA Review
2014 Honda Fury ABS VT13CXAE/VT1300CXA on Totalmotorcycle.com
Chopper riders seem to have become accustom to compromising functionality for high style, but the Fury changed all that. As radical as it looks with its stretched out wheelbase, severely raked front-end, super-low seat, fat 200 series back tire and skinny 21” front tire the Fury rides like… a Honda! Honda engineers love a challenge, and when they set out to build the Fury they knew from the beginning that it had to offer the ease of operation and controllability that people have come to expect from Honda. A number of clever innovations have allowed engineers to achieve what was previously thought impossible, heck it even has fuel injection, linked ABS brakes and almost four inches of rear suspension travel!
Fury – experience the impossible.
Honda’s radical Fury is a chopper like no other. Not only is it easily the most distinctive custom we’ve ever built, but it’s comparable to one-off custom-house choppers costing 10 times as much—except that it probably works and rides twice as well. Long, lean and mean, stretching nearly six feet from axle to axle, this machine is a real head-turner. And once you settle into the saddle, turn the key and fire up that big 1312cc V-twin, you’ll know this is the bike you’ve been dreaming about.
The Fury is a bike that makes you just want to stand back and stare. Oh sure, you’ll definitely want to ride it, but only after taking in its gorgeous styling, long, swooping lines and swooped-out chopper front end.
And when that time comes to throw a leg over this too-cool machine and thumb its starter, you’ll have two Fury models to choose from: our standard (if you can call anything about the Fury “standard”) stunner, or for riders wanting that added level of stopping control in less-than-ideal conditions, Honda also offers the optional anti-lock braking-equipped Fury ABS.
It’s commonplace to watch jaws drop when someone sees the Fury® for the first time. Indeed, this radical 1312cc V-twin machine appears to be a way-out image from some custom bike builder’s fevered dreams. Yet it’s all Honda, through and through. Here we have 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 built into every Honda.
