2009 Big Dog Coyote vs 2010 Honda Fury Comparison Review
Big Dog Motorcycles has been building sweet factory-custom choppers like the 2009 Coyote for 15 years running.
Honda threw its hat into the factory-custom chopper ring with the release of its 2010 Fury.
The Honda Fury has a no-nonsense, easy-to-read dial speedo.
The Honda Fury's five-speed transmission provides seamless shifting for plenty of easy-riding miles.
Though the 2009 Coyote is Big Dog's least expensive motorcycle to date, the Coyote has the same killer paint and graphics, shiny chrome, and monster motor Big Dog bikes are known for.
Look, partner, this here town's not big enough for the both of us...
The front brakes of the Coyote includes a two-piece full floating rotor with a four-piston caliper.
The route over Historic Route 66 took us through the old mining town of Oatman, Arizona, where we got into a two-burro traffic jam.
The pipes on the Fury look sharp enough. Now if only the possessed a little more growl.
The 2010 Honda Fury draws its power from a 1312cc 52-degree V-Twin engine.
We headed out West and put on 1200 miles in a week to test the mettle of these modern-day choppers.
You can't help but feel like a desperado riding Big Dog's cool Coyote chopper through the ghost town of Oatman.
The bars are wide, the seat height low, and the riding position is upright leaning slightly back on the 2009 Big Dog Coyote.
The torque down-low on the '09 Coyote is the type that tries to separate man from motorcycle.
The Coyote sources a 1917cc S&S engine for its power that is mated to a Baker 6-speed transmission.
The Fury might be its name, but its ride is more refined than the name's claim.
The Coyote's small, dial speedo is enough to see, the tach lights up well, but the small low fuel symbol could be a little more noticeable.
Look familiar? That's because the engine in the 2010 Fury is the same mill that's in Honda's cruiser, the VTX1300.
The front end of the Honda Fury features a 45mm fork and a big 336mm disc brake.
Here's the view from the cockpit of the 2010 Honda Fury. Check out the 1950s era gauge cluster.
What better place to find out what these choppers are made of than riding them somewhere you least want to break down - the middle of the desert.

The Big Dog's powerful S&S engine and bold Big Radius pipes made sure everyone heard you coming.
