The Victory Judge is the new 2013 model from Victory being unveiled right now to the press at the New York City Javits Center With the slogan “American Muscle Never Died. It just needs handlebars” The Judge is presented by Victory’s management as a performance cruiser combining smooth ride and handling with premium power and braking. It is the intention of its designers to parallel visions of classic american muscle cars by giving The Edge model powerful silhouette through a deeply sculpted bodywork with black-out components (frame, dual exhaust, triple trees, cases, cylinder heads and more)
The drag bars and bodywork are all new, as is the styling of the taillight, fender struts and new EFI covers between the cylinders. The Victory Judge features new 5-spoke cast wheels that evoke memories of performance mag wheels seen at race tracks in the 70’s. These 16” rims are shod with premium Dunlop Elite II tires with raised white lettering, the perfect look on a performance cruiser. An engaged riding position on top of the action with mid-mount lower controls and a 25.9” (658 mm) seat height, ideal for modest inseam riders.
Although Victory warns that some specifications may change, for sure The Edge will be powered by the 1731 cc 50 ̊ Freedom® 106/6 V-Twin. It serves up 113 ft-lbs of torque that let a rider punch through the gnarliest traffic, hustle through the curves and decimate any straightaway. Helical- cut gears in the proven 6-speed transmission deliver consistently smooth shifting. The true overdrive of 6th gear delivers smooth highway cruising, and a positive neutral finder simplifies the stoplight to stoplight battles. The 4.5-gallon (17.0 liter) fuel tank offers great range and is coupled to a high-end fuel injection system that can handle any riding conditions.
Three paint options including a sinister Gloss Black, Sunset Red, and a signature Suede Nuclear Sunset, host the minimal graphics. For the US, prices should be from MSRP $13,999 MSRP to $14,399 (In California, add $250). For Canada MSRP from $15,299 to $15,749. Victory Motorcycles.
