Honda has released additional details about its 1300 cc Fury chopper. The bike has the longest wheelbase of any Honda motorcycle ever built, at 1,808 mm (71.2 in), and has a low seat height of 678 mm (26.7 in).
Forks are 45 mm, and the single rear shock has adjustable rebound damping and five position spring preload. Rake and trail are 38 degrees and 89 mm (3.5 in). The rear tire size is 200/50-18 (front wheel is 90/90-21 as reported Thursday).
The liquid-cooled 52 degree V twin motor is a single overhead cam design with three valves per cylinder. Bore and stroke are 89.5 x 104.3 mm, and compression is 9.2:1.
That motor will drive the bike via a five-speed transmission and shaft drive, and the Fury will be available in graphite black, bordeaux red metallic, and matte bullet silver.
Honda evidently wants this bike to turn heads and catch the attention of the huge chopper market. A press release issued through CNW Group (a promotions outfit) calls it "a machine that radiates attitude and delivers a total riding experience approaching the outer limits of motorcycling."
The price has yet to be determined.
