The applause for the introduction of Honda’s 2014 model line might be dying down, but the show’s not over yet as some key cast members take the stage for their turn in the spotlight. Most are unchanged from last year, or at best will be available in new colors.
In the cruiser category the 2014 Fury, Sabre, Stateline, and Interstate retain the same specs and colors as the 2013 models; ditto for the Shadow line, including the Aero, the Phantom and the Spirit 750. The entry-level Rebel and the go-anywhere XR650L also return unchanged for 2014.
There are two color options to keep you on your toes. The 2014 Fury will be available in new red-and-white livery, while the Shadow Phantom goes dark with Gray Metallic.
Before you look at the lack of changes and dismiss these 2014s as same-old-same-old, bear in mind that their MSRPs are unchanged from 2013, too—even those with new color options. Staying the same doesn’t sound so bad now, does it?
