When a couple days ago I introduced you to the brand new Victory Cross Country Tour, most of you had an immediate positive reaction with with several commenting that they ready to order one. Because of your interest and because this model sets a new high standard for hard baggers, I have decided to give you all available information.
The Cross Country is ready and capable of challenging every motorcycle in its class with a rigid chassis, exceptional ABS wheel control with premium disc brakes, a strong and reliable 106″/6 Freedom powerplant (engine produces 92 hp and 109 ft-lb of torque), a 6-speed transmission with a true overdrive for the smoothest highway cruising, amazing comfort, low center of gravity with 26.25” seat height and the greatest cargo capacity of any production motorcycle in the world.
The Cross Country Tour lets a rider control airflow reaching the seating area and thus control comfort year round in all riding conditions. The new Victory Comfort Control System consists of: • Upper Air Controls that allow a rider to control the volume and direction of airflow to the upper body. Mounted at the base of the bike’s protective fairing, these controls pivot to provide cooling airflow where the rider wants to direct it or block air from reaching the upper body. • Lower Air Controls that allow a rider to control the volume of airflow to the legs. Fully open, they allow
cooling airflow to reach the legs. Closed, they block airflow to keep a rider’s legs warmer. • Both the Upper Air Controls and Lower Air Controls can be adjusted easily with gloved hands.
Along with the Lower Air Controls, the hard lowers feature convenient covered and lockable storage compartments with 1 gallon capacity per lower; an iPod. cord that connects an iPod with the bike’s integrated audio system; and an integrated 12V power outlet for electrical devices such as GPS or chargers.The lowers are mounted on chromed tubular highway bars that provide tip-over protection.
Complementing the Victory Comfort Control System is the new tall windshield. This windshield is taller that the previously available accessory tall windshield, and it blocks wind, rain and road debris while providing a rider with a clear view of the road ahead.
A color-matched Lock & Ride. trunk is standard on the Cross Country Tour. It offers 17.7 gallons of secure, weatherproof storage in a space roomy enough to hold two full-face helmets. The lockable trunk provides the passenger with a padded backrest and it has two audio speakers. With Lock & Ride technology, the trunk can be installed on or removed from the bike quickly and easily without tools.
The Cross Country Tour also has HID lighting for optimized visibility and rear tip-over protection. Strong frame mounted bars that run along the bottom edge of the saddlebags make first contact with the ground if the bike is tipped over
The passenger floorboard height can be adjusted a range of 2” quickly and easily. A passenger has the choice of three height settings and the floorboard surface angle can also be adjusted a range of 10 degree. Every touring model features extended driver floorboards that let the driver position feet and legs as desired during high-mileage stretches on the road
The Cross Country Tour provides the most storage of any bike in the world, a total capacity of over 41 gallons in its trunk, saddlebags and forward storage compartments.
The stylish and protective fork-mounted fairing provides excellent protection and houses instrumentation and an integrated audio system. • AM/FM radio is standard, as is the iPod® cord in the left hard lower; satellite radio is available as an accessory • Instrumentation contained in the fairing includes an analog speedometer, fuel gauge, odometer, trip meter, and indicator lights.
