The New Victory Vegas Limited Edition

victoryvegas2010At the recent and somewhat dull New York Motorcycle Show, Polaris unveiled a new 2010 Victory Vegas Limited Edition, the 1st of the line with a 106″/6 speed setup.

Only 100 Vegas LE will be produced this year at a price of $15,999. On this model the Victory’s Freedom V-Twin was fitted with Stage 2 cams to push output to 97 HP and torque to 113 lbs/foot.

Exceot the powerplant, modifications are mostly cosmetics: a 106 racing graphic on both sides of the seat, a blacked-out driveline and front end, color matched frame and swingarm (imo, they should have done the exhaust in black). This new cruiser is offered in Fireball Red, Turbo Silver and Purl White. Orders for this very Limited Rdition must be placed before February 15th. Victory Motorcycles.

    I like Victory and I wish they would come out with something really cool before it is too late.

    Cyril-how about some “fast industry news” about the turn out at the javits show?

    What, a “Limited Edition” American motorcycle for under $30,000.00? This should be a new trend for everyone to follow.

    What about a limited edition custom built bike for under $20k? I trhink this is a new trend. We’e doing our version of a limited edition custom built daily rider on a budget. I’ve seen some others doing simialr things although not all are limited editions.

    Yawwwwwwn. Why don’t they paint it white to go along with their “vanilla” concept?

  6. 6 just my opinion Jan 27th, 2010 at 2:18 pm

    Jed; What is so vanilla about this bike? Maybe the 100hp engine or the fact that it is liquid cooled or many be it is the custom wheels or the frame painted to match the tank and fenders and all for under 16,000. I don’t see the big MOCO doing anything like this at that price. HD’s idea of limited edition was to do 300,000 of the 100th aniversary bikes all the same and call them special. I think I can hear Granny calling you Jed, best go get some vittles now. Tell ellie may and jethro we said hello too. And have a nice day.

    hey just my opinion- victory’s are air/oil cooled including this one. always have been since day one, all of them.

    as for your power claim- if you do the math you’ll see the H-D milll and the Freedom motor are not that far off.

    a twin cam 96 makes 93 lb-ft at the crank; the victory with 106ci makes 113 lb-ft. sure a big difference in overall numbers but if you do the math (considering the vic is more than 10% bigger than the H-D) the power is comparable. the cvo 110ci mill makes 115 lb-ft of torque. not that much difference.

    i really like the victory motor and the bikes, but how about being a little fair and stop whining. if you haven’t noticed the vic has an overhead cam design with 4-valve heads while h-d uses pushrods. try putting that vic milll into a custom. it’s really tall.

    for all the h-d bashers on this site, why not boycott the company? really, put up or shut up. i don’t see anyone here making star parts, or victory parts or using other makers’ motors. you’d likely be out of business if that was the case. if h-d sucks so bad get off the teet and riding the MOCO’s coattails.

    get back your vittles.

    Hypothetically what you are sying is that two engines differat manufactuers same cubic inch same tourge same horse power are equels.

    Give Victory some creds. Hell HD is trying to push yet another version of the Sporty for 10K. At the very least credit the guys for not relying on black black paint and calling it new product.

  11. 11 Sheridan Jan 27th, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    Nice looking bike and for a fair price. Good luck Victory!!

  12. 12 FLAT TOP Jan 27th, 2010 at 11:52 pm

    Wooooo-Hooooo someone is seeing the light.. I good looking bike for $16,000 Cool ! All things considered, there are some “custom” turds out there for 14-18K that are just that….. This is a everyday cool bike for $16 with a dealer network…… I can hang with this….

  13. 13 Sniperman Jan 28th, 2010 at 4:39 am

    Same ugly bike…….different paint job…….wow!………now that’s what I call “limited”!!

    Sign me up fellaws…………… before they are all gone!!!

    I was able to personally see it at the Javits show last weekend an was not impressed.

    The solution for Victory is simple:

    “Develop a better looking bike and you might start selling more bikes”

    hey just my opinion- victory’s are air/oil cooled including this one. always have been since day one, all of them.

    Last time I checked oil is still considered a liquid. Sure the Victory is not a traditional Liquid cooled motor with a radiator but you should give Victory credit for coming up with a way to cool that engine down by using oil and air and doing it with out a radiator. The Victory does run a hell of a lot cooler than the HD equivalent. HD could have done the same but they choose to design a motor that over heats. That is not bashing HD it is just the truth anyone that has riden a Twin Cam in hot weather knows it is the truth. And as for custom builders riding HD’s coat tails I don’t know of any of the other builders that are doing well that use HD motors most use TP, S&S, Enginuity, rev tech everything but HD. Let us know who all these builders are that are using HD motors in their customs because I can’t think of any. The only custom I can think of that used HD was Thunder mountain customs out of Colorado and as far as I know they are not building any more.
    I know that they did bankrupt but maybe they started building again I really don’t know. You may think people on here are bashing HD but that is not the case we are just being Honest and Fair. IT IS WHAT IT IS. And the truth is HD needs to step up their game. I don’t wish them any bad but I must be honest. They do need to change or they will soon be a thing of the past. HD is losing market share daily and Victory is gaining ground daily that pretty much say’s it all right there doesn’t it. Have a nice day.

    ‘Guess Not’ – I was at the NYC IMS on Saturday at it was as busy, if not more than previous years. I would agree with Cyril’s lead in that it was pretty dull. Some mfg’s/brands were not even there like KTM and Husqvarna. In any event getting out with that many bike enthusiasts is all good!

    Well, there is just something about the Victories I don’t like. I don’t know if it’s the colors or what, but to me the bikes look like they are made of plastic.

    They are also going to space age style for my liking.

    However there are Victory Custom shops. In Watkins Minnesota there is Mafia Customs LLC . They only use Victory engines in their bikes. I think the owner also works at the local Polaris dealership.

    They have a facebook page at
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mafia-Customs-LLC/188916186147

    Their bikes also look plastic & again it may be the colors they use. The one they are most proud of has a very neon green frame

    Lets give Victory some credit for their innovations. The Vision is not my style of motorcycle but I do admire the radical styling design and concept of this model. But I really like what they did with the Cross Roads and Cross Country 2010 models utilizing the Vision chassis. The engineering innovations done on them is impressing to me as well. The air box is in the frame accomplishing large volume of air to meet carb, very innnovative. Perhaps HD can learn something from that. And oh yes mono shock,,,on a dresser?? thats different. This turned out to be a comment on Victory as a whole instead of the Vegas LE. Cool bike, and nice price point. Keep up the good work Victory!
