Was looking at the Iron 883 and Nightster the other day as a possible next bike, the new Victory definitely has my attention.

Looks nice! and they have the 106ci engine in there!

Victory's on a roll... Curious to see what they do with the Indian brand..

Now that's what a muscle cruiser should look like! I love the old school Dunlop white letter tires. I don't like cruisers.... And I would own one of those!

Be a tuff choice between that and the Triumph Storm.

Polaris is a pretty sporty company,I wonder how long till they build a dirt/dual purpose bike?
Numbers are up on dualsports sales.

I'm not sure about the Oval side panel and the way the seat wraps around it:



Also thinking a second front disk would be useful.

But, for a cruiser it looks better than most of the others.

That seat was the first thing to catch my eye, looks funky, but I bet its comfy. Will def. have to get a test ride on one, now I just have to find a Vic dealer, which is surprisingly hard considering I live about 40 mins away from the factory.

Ah, this kind of makes sense now, with the Zach Ness custom motorcycle (and what looks to be an ohlins shock on his motorcycle, in the video).

Not exactly what I would call mid-controls, but they're further back than their other bikes with forward controls. I kind of like this bike, getting closer to what I want in a bike.

Keep it up, Victory/Polaris; you might make a customer out of me in the future.

Is this scoot going to fill the Buell void?

Sacrilege, go and wash your mouth out. Buell never built cruisers. This may be a "muscle" cruiser, but it is still a cruiser

FAR FAR FAR from a buell.

But looks a lot like a reincarnation of the Victory SC, HD Super Glide Sport or perhaps even Street Rod.


......which means it will be a great bike that will fail in the showroom.

Not sure I would call that mid mounted controls though.

Only if Victory decides to crush it into a cube when subsequent models come out.



I like that Judge. So much I'll stop at the local dealer to look at one when they make it out.

Are those luggage mounts on the rear fender or should I ice my boner?

Mid controls, no chain, no valve, decent sized back tire, adjustments...:

I need to see other specs but so far I really like this bike!
