Victory. The New American Made Police Motorcycles.

First, let me mention that this Victory Police Motorcycles enterprise was not born at the Polaris headquarters, but from the initiative of a Victory Dealer in Tucson Arizona (Nita Buckner and Mike Shultz) with the support of a motor officer named Shawn Ramsey. Here is the story.

2007, the Tucson Law Enforcement Cycle Fest and Swap meet was held in downtown Tucson. Public is invited to watch the riding skills of Tucson’s finest police officers. 4 new Victory are lent for the officers to ride against the Kawasaki 1000’s and Harley Davidson Road Kings. Instantly they love the easy handling, performance and reliability and inquire as to why Victory had never offered a Police Motorcycle.

They talked about the possibility but nothing was done immediately. Later, Mike Shultz contacted Victory and inquired as to the possibility of entering the Police Motorcycle business with the Victory Kingpin motorcycle. Victory promptly provided Arizona Victory with a new Victory Kingpin in which to convert for Police use.

More than 3 years later and after a tremendous number of hours, meetings, surveys and information gathering from Motor Officers not only in Tucson but from around the U.S., the Police Victory Kingpin was built and 3 models are now available: The Enforcer (top picture), the Commander 1 with fairing and the Commander 2 with windshield. Both models come standard with largest in class 106 cubic inch V Twin producing 97 horsepower (4500 rpm) and  best 119 ft/lbs of torque (3200 rpm). Coupled with a 6 speed, true overdrive constant mesh transmission, right hand drive with carbon fiber reinforced drive belt. The new company is already offering to Police Departments around the country complete turn-key solutions (bike is delivered with lights, siren, radio, crash bars, etc) and is ready for duty on delivery day.

    Very nice!
    I would like to hear from some police officers on how the Victory compares to the Hondas and BMWs.

    I agree with JSDiamond. “Build it here”.

    Noticed that they no longer use the Kingpin but the new Crosscountry. Great handling bikes with plenty of juice!

    Victorys are built in SPIRIT LAKE, IOWA & you don’t get much more American than that! Polaris is building a plant in Mexico that will build some of the entry level 4 wheelers. I have been assured that Victorys will NEVER be built in a foreign country. You can not buy a more AMERICAN made motorcycle than a Vic!

    Very cool looking designs. I hope they do well with it. I ran across a published evaluation of police bikes from the LA County Sheriff. They have a pretty extensive evaluation process. Here’s a link to the results:

    Very nice, also awesome response from Victory, great to hear when someone has a good idea for a new direction, they say no problem, heres a bike.

    I hope that top pic isn’t the real deal, because with that fairing cobbled on way up in the air it isn’t gonna handle worth squat at speed. If there’s a tach or speedo in the way you can’t just raise the fairing up in the air like that and call it “done”.

    This is huge because Victory will be more flexible than HD, probably cheaper and with a better product for the cops. It’s well done and it’s going to give HD a run for their money. Another battle for the Motor Company that probably doesn’t need this.

    I really like Victory,they are innovative and are making very cool bikes.I like the HAMMER most,true cruiser and their bagger is top of line.Love to own one of these.
    The prices are value for money and they will be threat to HD in near future.

    Very Nice motorcycle. The people at Arizona Victory are pushing the envelope in what they are doing to these police motorcycles. Great Job.

    This is so nice and slick, I envy those policemen that have to patrol on these rides. I would like to customize my motorcycle like this one, it is so cool and manly. Thumbs up!

    Go to and check out some of the videos on the bikes running with other police bikes, especially just recently at the NAMOA (North American Motor Officer’s Association) event in Portland, where 160 officers trained and competed. Many of them rode the Victory and were impressed by it’s power and handling.
    You can actually just go to youtube and punch in Victory Police and find videos on it. The Victory train is coming, jump on or miss the ride!

    Are Polaris snowmobiles made in the USA?
