The Radical Fury Keeps Rolling
It's no surprise that the eye-catching Fury will be making a return appearance for 2011; the rolling incarnation of undiluted chopper essence combines extreme lines and head-turning looks with the fit and finish, functionality and reliability Honda is known for. For 2011, the Fury will be available in Dark Red Metallic, Pearl White and Matte Orange Metallic beginning in December 2010. Optional ABS and CBS - color and availability dates have yet to be determined.

Honda Interstate: High Style For The Highway
Honda merges looks and the ability to rack up big miles in the Interstate. It's now available as an optional ABS model with Honda's Combined Braking System for 2011. Those stylish hard leather bags offer ample storage space and that big, traditional windscreen adds to all-day riding comfort and convenience. The Interstate can be had in Dark Red Metallic and Black, beginning in December 2010. The optional ABS and CBS - color and availability dates will be announced shortly.

Shadow RS: Retro but Modern
The Honda Shadow RS combines responsive handling, V-twin power, clean, lines and standard-style riding ergonomics. The Shadow RS's higher footpegs enhance ground clearance, and its modern liquid-cooled 745cc V-twin engine boasts Honda's sophisticated Programmed Fuel Injection. The RS will be available in a new dramatic Blue/White/Red paint scheme beginning in December 2010.

Shadow Phantom: Low-Profile Cool
The Shadow Phantom delivers a V-twin ride packing a clean and uncluttered appearance. The low, minimalist look and extensive blackout treatment contrasts with that 745cc V-twin engine, with the convenience and sophistication of Programmed Fuel Injection, occupying the engine bay. With its simple, low-profile approach to cool, the Shadow Phantom goes for the less -is-more approach to styling. The Phantom will be available in Black beginning in December 2010.
