    I hope its an adventure bike w/ long travel suspension

  3. 3 Robert Pandya Jan 19th, 2012 at 11:31 am

    Luis – it is NOT an adventure bike with long travel suspension. The image that Cyril shows is part of the bike.

    Now if only they’d do something with Indian

  5. 5 Hondo Cat Jan 19th, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    I understand it will be a light weight, muscle car era evoking bike.

  6. 6 Paul @ Aeromach Jan 19th, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Well at least the Kingpin headlight is gone

  7. 7 Matt Jan 19th, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    It’s certainly not going to be an ALL NEW bike but my guess is that it’s a stripped down cafe racer inspired model based on the Vegas or Hammer.

    Hey, Matt. Try to bribe Cyril and you will know in advance. LOL.

  9. 9 BobS Jan 19th, 2012 at 2:09 pm

    Looks to be my kind of bike, love my Kingpin!

    Lets guess that it will contain lots of plastic parts like all there other bikes…. and come close to looking good but just not quite make it.

  14. 14 Black Biker Jan 19th, 2012 at 4:04 pm

    Steve-o…Can you name a victory besides the vision that has lots of plastic? I have the Cross Country and the only plastic is the fairing and the saddlebags.

  15. 15 Dinky Dot Jan 19th, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    Vics dont have a lot of plastic parts in them, they just look like they do….thats enough

  16. 16 Brett Jan 19th, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    Black Biker, like said, they may not be plastic but look like they are. Sorry, but there is not a Victory that does it for me looks wise. When I 1st saw pictures of the High ball I thought that might be the one. Then I saw it in person…..just like the look of all the Victories, I hate it.

  17. 17 HD Rider Jan 19th, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    They do have a lot of plastic parts. I owned a Cross Country for a while.

    – The “cheese wedges” on each side of the motor
    – The saddlebag latches
    – The headlight bezel
    – The turn signals
    – The rear tail light assembly
    – The bug guards on the front of the forks

    These are just a few of the plastic parts that immediately come to mind. Don’t get me wrong, the Victory is a very well-engineered bike, but all of the plastic was a turn-off for me. I think they cut too many corners to keep the cost of the bike down.

    what’s all this plastic crap, wot do you wont, wood??? iron??? plastic is lightness, and ligness
    is speed……

  19. 19 George Jan 19th, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    This is the third week of January, 2012 and they are coming out with the 2013 models now. When do they come out with the 2014 models, February?

  20. 20 Black Biker Jan 19th, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    I’m no biker builder but, the parts that matter are a solid metal construction and design. I really not going to down a desing because the 2 inch bug deflectors are plastic (At least they are made in America). The plastic parts mentioned also make the dry weight of the bike around 765 Lbs. which would explain why with just new pipes and a high flow air filter I dust most harley baggers.

    See you in my rear view…

  21. 21 BobS Jan 19th, 2012 at 5:47 pm

    Ashley, Victory will introduce the new bike on Friday. On Saturday they will be unveiling a custom one off based on the new bike done by Zach Ness.
    And plastic is lighter, more dent resistant, and won’t rust. I have no problems at all with a faster bike that has trouble free parts on it.

  22. 22 Mad dog Jan 19th, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    It’s going to be a two-wheeled Trike with radar cruise control, 8 airbags, night vision SatNav & it can fly!

  23. 23 Sollis Jan 19th, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    @ Alan sharp my guess is that plastic stands for cheap , if they would use carbon fiber no one would complain carbon fiber stands for high performance , but i could be wrong people;e find to complain about anything specially on this blog what a bunch a puss’s this bikers today

  24. 24 Matt Jan 19th, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    When you’re talking about the high durability plastics used on most bikes today there really isn’t much of a functional or cosmetic disadvantage compared to most metals but it’s not shocking that those who are purely attached to vintage styled cruisers might see more modern materials like plastic as blasphemy. Victory obviously has a more progressive style and engineering approach to cruisers so SOME plastic is no big deal IMO. It’s not worth spending that much more $$$ of up front or replacement costs just so I have a few more options of where to stick my magnetic nut & bolt tray =).

    Too many of us have experience with how plastic parts age. Look at 10- to 20-year-old metrics: the plastic has gotten brittle, the “plastichrome” finish bubbles, hairline cracks form, stressed parts lose their shape and sag or bend, and constant exposure to the sun discolors them. It looks fine in the showroom, but time makes it look cheap and worn in a way steel never does.

    It’s entirely possible that materials engineering has eliminated these drawbacks in recent years, but none of us who’ve suffered with inferior materials in the past want to be first in line to help you test it out now! We may be ridin’ heavy, but we know we can KEEP ON ridin’ heavy for decades, and look good doing it, if we want.

  26. 26 Seymour Jan 19th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    Frankly I think Victory is going to the well too many times with these new surprise model announcements.

    That said, I happen to Know that this new model is a rigid frame with “girger” (springer/girder) front end.

  27. 27 1550tc Jan 19th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    New Victory mmmmmmmmm iam thinking a clone of HD’s 4 or 5th best selling bike?

  28. 28 viz Jan 20th, 2012 at 1:38 am

    I wonder what kind of Balls name it will be? The last two bikes names were ball.

  29. 29 Rick Lossner Jan 20th, 2012 at 7:37 am

    With all this hype.. I hope it’s more than just a paint job or new seat! 🙂

    On a side note… rode one last week … nice bike……. nothing earth shattering, but equal to the HDs in most respects..

  30. 30 Boomer Jan 20th, 2012 at 8:23 am

    I’m thinking a Conquest style bike with a big fat exposed rear wheel with almost no rear fender at all. Very low front handlebars. Mean aggressive look.

    Stop Sopa. Stop PIPA;

  31. 31 steve-O Jan 20th, 2012 at 8:30 am

    When I looked at the High Ball I was excited to go see it in person. The first thing I saw was that horrendous light and I tapped it “plastic” then around the motor/tank more plastic to hide wiring they dont want to engineer out of site. They cut corners and that is why I think they come close but dont quite make it. It is too bad to because I would buy one if they could change that stuff. Some of there bikes are great values

  32. 32 morpion Jan 20th, 2012 at 10:12 am

    anything they do it,s ugly

  33. 33 VanityPrintz Jan 20th, 2012 at 11:14 am

    15m to go!!!!!!!!1

    Once a persons eye has decided it likes the 100 year old nostalgic style of the Indians and Harley’s; it’s very difficult to get them to look at any other motorcycle with open eyes. I actually pity people who go through life with self-imposed blinders on. A few years ago I was a serious hardcore died in the wool Harley guy and I like them to this day but I also know what an inferior product it beneath that beautiful skin. For someone who put 4-6k miles a year on their bike; the Harley will work just fine for those applications. I’m currently on my 9th Harley and currently own an 01 Piglet Sporty, 04 Kingpin, and an 11 XC (Cross Country). I’m also on my 3rd of many more Victory’s to come. I intend to own my tenth HD after this Sporty has found a new home. I like to buy a diamond in the rough and sell them after I put my special magic to them, ride ’em for a while to make sure they are sound, then sell them. It’s a hobby I like and I know it helps the next person in line to get that bike. I do this with HD’s because I like them and they sell quicker but I think I’m going to give earlier Victory models a try too. They are really holding their own and run forever or 200,000 miles. Whichever comes first.

    If you want the best ride available today on the one of the most reliable, best handling, best balanced bikes, that hold their value; you’ve got to ride a Victory.

    I agree with the poster about the plastic parts of some of the newer bikes. I’ve de-plasticizing my Victory Cross Country since I got it because chrome over steel does last long if maintained correctly. High tech plastics do have their place as well. Especially where they aren’t being seen.

    Keep an open mind, take a ride on a few of the Vic’s, and if you still feel the same way; so be it.
