The Brits and the French finally get it! Honda's Fury Chopper available there soon
Moto123 rode and loved the Fury at the official Honda Canada press ride in Florida this past March. In fact, Honda Canada has sold out the model, as we suspect US Honda did. The little thing just flat work - better than the competition.
Europe is a different kettle of fish when it comes to bike types and model, with Harley-Davidson selling cruisers on their incredibly effective image, and manufacturers of metric cruisers importing only a few models to slide in below H-D prices.
|The Chopper look includes no frills anywhere, a high front end and raked-out fork tubes. Honda got it right with the Fury, that's for sure!
In the case of the Fury, with the unique raised front and looong fork tubes, more performance than a Harley, and a price commensurate with performance, well European riders and Honda Europe were simply not ready for that revolution. It appears they do now, as Honda UK and France just announced availability of the Fury for early 2010.
The Honda Fury was lauded by the North American Press and has sold well. Honda UK and France took note. Good on them.
Hmmm... maybe I can get one to try out over there. Scotland in July - sounds like a plan!Photo Credit : Honda
