I don't like cruisers. But that is cool. I'd own that a million times over before I even looked a V-rod. V-rods are way to freakin' long. That thing looks just about perfectly sized.

Nice job Victory.

Don't like the flat uninspired oval shaped oil tank/side covers.

Probably nice for a tailbag, but looks like it is just an exposed part of the subframe.

I really like the muscle car-ish wheels.

I dig it, not initially crazy about the side plate-but has possibilities. Can'y wait to get a test ride (In about 3 months)

Victory sells leather and semi-rigid saddlebags for most, if not all, of their cruisers, so I'd guess they'll have them available for this one too.

All in all, I like the look and am glad they didn't put a 250 or some other stupidly huge rear tire on it. The front brake looks like it may be a little lacking, and in some of the pictures it looks like there could be quite the parachute effect on the rider, but I'd like to test ride one.

Something tells me Victory is gonna be selling those retro-looking "106" decals to go on the oval.

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

Not sure I would call that mid mounted controls though.
For some reason, I think it will sell, perhaps because its target market isn't The Faithful, who have a very narrow idea of what constitutes a motorcycle.

And I agree re: mid controls. Wha'?

Looks like they want it to compete with the Sportster.

It looks slightly less shitty than the usual Victory models. That oval thing sucks, and so do the pipes and rear fender.

90 degree knee bend = mids. These are not far off that mark.

I am a die hard Victory fan but I agree.....yawn. This is damn near the same bike they already make. Look at all their "muscle cruisers"....not much difference.....and this one is even less different.

They missed the boat here. They already have the market for THAT kind of bike covered well.

Hows about a mid-sized bike with a smaller vtwin (800cc or so) for those that dont want a big bike....or first time riders.

Say what you want about my Vision.....but atleast they are different.

.......I think they missed the boat.

I don't care for the fender struts or the oval side cover.
