    Angle between grip and mirror seems to be too great.

    Looks like a really short stem,my "guess"....high bars in relationship to seat height.

    My usual style is to be disagreeable on forums, but in this case, I won't.


    I was in Ouray this past July. I love that part of the country. How many times did you drop it?

    High bars make sense.

    The Gunner will be introduced at the Chicago Show this weekend?

    This seems to be the opinion of various speculative Internuts.

    "Until now, motorcyclists have had to choose between a powerful, comfortable heavyweight cruiser and a nimble bike for downtown rides. With the Gunner bursting onto the scene, that’s all about to change. The Gunner boasts a powerful 106ci V-twin on a full-size chassis, a lowered seat height, and lean-angle engineering that makes it ride like no other bobber currently on the market. "

    "“Bikers have been asking us to give them a bobber with some real power – and that’s exactly what we’re giving them with this bad boy,” says Steve Menneto, Vice President, Polaris Motorcycles. “The Gunner’s got the muscle of a heavyweight, the handling of a Victory, and it’s an awesome-looking bobber. There’s no other bike like it on the market, and we can’t wait to lift the cover and reveal it this weekend. The Gunner offers a much-needed option for serious riders in the market for a bobber.”

    The Victory Gunner will be revealed to the public on Saturday, February 8th, at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Chicago. The reveal will take place in the Victory Motorcycle booth at the show at noon. The public will be able to get a close look and a feel for the bike in Chicago; Gunner demo rides will be available in March at Daytona Bike Week.

    This is just what we need. I think Yamaha blew it with the small Bolt. They should have gone with a bigger motor first.

    I expect them to play catch up with a 1300 motor soon.

    Congrats on the bike. The Bridgestones work well and are much cheaper then the Dunlops. However I found that they also wear a lot quicker than the Dunlops so you don't really save any money. Probably cost you money unless you do your own tire changes.

    Let's not get too excited about the Gunner yet. Full size chassis, 106 engine.

    Think of a Judge with different tins, a lower seat, and some fiddling with the ergonomics.

    A lower seat? The Judge is 25.9"...Fiddling with ergo's? The Judge moved the foot controls 4" forward for 2014....Got to be more to it than that!:lol3

    Maybe a higher seat height with sportier...um...nah..forget it:lol3

    I love the paint color on your bike. Looks great! If you're looking to upgrade the tires.. Pilot 3s... Those are going to grip like no other.
    Also if you need saddlebags, check out viking http://www.vikingbags.com/motorcycle-victory-saddlebags.htm
    they have a decent selection of nice priced stuff..

    I actually have victory saddlebags. The small ones that hinge forward amd velcro close. The viking warrior bag looks interesting though.

    I'll price the oem dunlop tires. I don't mount my own but I do usually carry in my wheels in off the bike though. Someone mentioned pilot roads....not in a 90/90-21 though.

    Different wheels, paint and bars from the Judge is all I'm seeing.

    Or is it different wheels and paint from the 8Ball Vegas?

    I was kinda hoping for a Core based 120" bike with some attitude.

    Yawn.

    I like Victorys - may well be my next bike - but that doesn't look like anything new.
