From Motorcycledaily.com:


Honda dealers are being told that the "Fury" chopper we discussed in our story here will go into production and be available for sale next March at an estimated U.S. MSRP of $12,000. Dealers are being shown photos of the bike, but Honda will officially reveal it at the New York Motorcycle Show next month. Reportedly, the photos shown to dealers reveal a raked-out bike somewhat similar to the Star Raider in design.


Another article with attached 'spy' shots!

Yeah it looks like my friends Victory Vegas.


By the time it goes to dealers, it will have all that stuff on it that we will have to remove.
(If we bought one, which we won't. Will we?)

I'm not seeing Raider at all. I think the only comparison is the extra rake. It does have similarirites like thefendersand stuff to the Vegas but Victorys are right side drive.

Too Harleyish looking for me. I can see the Victory resemblance as well but that skinny rear end has got to go!

It looks like a cripped bike, that tank is touching the sky. They also continued the stupid tradition to have only one brake caliper on front... Anyways, the Rider looks a zillion times better.

Single rotor front and what looks to be a rotor/sprocket combo in the back. I would hate to see the head shake that will give if you had to get into that front brake hard. Any way it cant be a Honda...it doesnt have butt ugly shocks sticking out the back. lol

I work at a honda dealer for one that is a chain driven bike in the picture the fury's will be shaft drive. It's gonna have a vtx1300cc motor with fuel injection and a totally different top end ex( better cams, pistons, valve train) for more performance. still going to be liquid cooled though YAY HONDA!!!

Looks like some customized bike with a Buell frt whl, chain driveand a bottle of Kool-Aid sitting over the frt sprocket unless it's engine coolant

The Rider looks a zillion times better? Typo? Not that there's anything wrong with that?

Ha! I was just gonna say that should have got a dude who looked a little cooler to ride it for the photos. Maybe someone who doesn't wear white gloves when he rides...

I will go ahead and say it that thing is just plain ugly. It looks nothing like the Raider.
Just plain ugly as opposed to phucking ugly - which is what the Raider is

WHITE GLOVES... did you get a look at those riding shoes that guy has on? I too think the Rider looks good, but a zillion times better... I mean maybe a million or a cool trillion, but a zillion??
