A limited edition 15th Anniversary model will be introduced at the International Motorcycle Show in New York City, this weekend Jan. 18-20. It will be unveiled publicly on Friday, Jan. 18, at 6 p.m. (EST) at the Victory display in the Jacob K. Javits Center. It was 15 years ago that the first Victory motorcycles hit the open road. Victory No. 1 – a V92C classic cruiser – was built on the Fourth of July 1998 at the Polaris/Victory production facility in Spirit Lake, Iowa. The limited edition 15th Anniversary Victory models will be produced on the same assembly line after the bike is unveiled in New York.
“We are excited to celebrate 15 years with our passionate riders,” said Steve Menneto, Polaris VP Motorcycles. “Victory riders are men and women who demand the best Cruisers, Baggers, and Touring bikes on the road and we are excited to celebrate this exciting time with them while also continuing to develop new models to ensure more great riding ahead.”
Other Victory activities include: 1- A display of the complete 2013 Victory motorcycle lineup: Cruisers, Baggers and Touring models – as well as a large collection of new Victory apparel. 2- Victory Bagger Bar: Riders can take a seat at the Victory Bagger Bar to learn more about Victory baggers and accessories from Victory engineers and accessories developers. Tablets at the Victory Bagger Bar will provide interactive access to the accessories catalog and allow riders to virtually “build” accessorized Victory models. 3- National Motorcycle Museum Ness Victory Custom: Legendary custom bike builders – and Victory dealers – Arlen Ness and Cory Ness will introduce the Ness Custom Cross Country that will be raffled off to raise funds for the National Motorcycle Museumin Anamosa, Iowa. Victory donated the bike and the Nesses customized it into a one-of-a-kind custom that includes museum graphics. The bike will be unveiled Friday, Jan. 18, after the Victory 15th Anniversary model is introduced. 4- Gunny’ & The Bunnies: Actor, Victory rider and retired U.S. Marine R.
