Sweet bikes. Pic's or it didn't happen.
I thought the High Ball was their bobber??
How many sheep went into the making of that seat cover?
I love that color scheme.
I would have thought the Judge would have been a decent handler?Before they moved the controls forward and brought the bars back it "kind of" resembled a Dyna which is an ok riding bike.I don't get the whole sportster comparo..What are you looking for here? The Gunner is supposed to be a bobber that handles?I know it's me,I'm missing something that everyone else is seeing
You're not missing anything.
All things Victory are compulsively compared to HD.
Victory can stand on its own.
We're all just speculating. That's all any of us can do at this point, unless you have friends in high places.
If you look at the more recently released hot bikes in the cruiser market, I think the small cc HD and the bolt stand out. So to me it makes sense that vic would maybe try to throw their hat in that ring with something similar, yet still unique. After all, they have enough models in the large cruiser segment(even too many maybe), but they don't have anything light and nimble. I think a bandit style bobber would be cool, especially with the 106. To me it sort of makes sense, but I could be way off, who the hell knows... we'll find out on the 8th.
Just one sheep
I stopped by my Vic dealer this morning. The showroom was packed with used late model Harley's. I stopped counting at 75.
I asked the sales manager where they all came from. He said that about half were Victory or Can-Am trade ins, and the rest they bought from other dealers who needed to get rid of inventory.
He said that the dealership hired a certified HD tech, and plan to sell a lot of used HD bikes beginning this Spring. Some buyers can't afford a new Vic, others just want a good deal on a used Harley. And every time a HD comes in for service, the owner is offered a ride on a Victory demo bike.
Interestingly, this is the second Vic dealer I've visited that uses this strategy. Employ a certified HD mechanic, undercut the nearest HD dealer on service prices, and offer free demo rides.
Should be interesting to see how this turns out.
That is good thinking right there.
I like that!
Thats quite a strategy,funny thing is I was just checking used Harley prices online last night.....and yes,there are loads of used Harleys in my area
Our market also has no shortage of used HDs. What's worse, is dealerships from other states are listing bikes on our craigslist. Not to say they can't or shouldn't, but it almost seems a little desperate, because i have never seen them do that before. Not a good time to be getting rid of a used Harley.
Fresh off the trailer on a crappy slick 19 degree day. She's in dire need of a bath, but she's all mine damn it! 2007 Vegas premium. The victory black saddle bags and memphis shades screen are cleaned up and bagged in the house.
Planning on a set of bridgestones G850/exedra max front to replace the orginal worn out dunlops....
Off road on a vision what an idiot
OK ... so that pic makes it obvious where Kawasaki nicked the "look" for their VN900 Custom ... right down to one of their color choices!
Not sure I see the "idiot" part.......a guy with great riding skills set a world record. Good for him.
Trust me I look at him in a mirror every day. He is an idiot
Polaris Industries a record fourth quarter ended Dec. 31, 2013, with sales revenue of $1.08 billion and a net income of $108.7 million. While off-road vehicles represent the bulk of Polaris business, its motorcycle operations saw a 94% increase in fourth quarter sales, thanks to strong demand for Victory Motorcycles and the addition of new Indian Motorcycles models.
Received a teaser email from Victory a few minutes ago.
This is the image embedded in the email.
What's with the mirror?
