Cycle World did a comparison between the Honda Fury and the Star Raider. Of course the Raider won hands down. Bigger engine, bigger brakes, less plastic etc. I blame this on Honda. They opted for smaller engine (56 horsepower compared to 85.9 hp)and single disc brake etc. Athough this is not a fair comparison, I think Honda should have done more homework before bringing out the Fury. The 1800 engine and dual disc front brakes would have made this comparison a lot more even.
