2017 Victory Motorcycles Lineup. Increased Power. More Standard Features.

4Magnum-X-1-05-(Large)Victory Motorcycles® is focusing on performance. The very first Victory motorcycle brief was simple: build a motorcycle that’s more powerful and handles better than any other American cruiser. Eighteen years later, Victory remains dedicated to the pursuit of performance. For 2017, after achieving a 2nd place podium position at the Isle of Man TT with the Victory RR, becoming the 2nd and 3rd fastest motorcycles to climb Pikes Peak with the Empulse® RR and Project 156, accomplishing a circumnavigation of the globe in record time with Urs “Grizzly” Pedraita and his Victory Cross Country Tour®, and setting a Guinness World Record burnout with Joe “Vertical” Dryden aboard an Octane®, America’s motorcycle manufacturer is geared up for its most powerful year ever, redefining what an America V-twin motorcycle can be. Whether it’s our 1200cc Octane®, five-model Cruiser family, Magnum®, Magnum® X-1 and best-selling Cross Country® Bagger models, Cross Country Tour® and Victory Vision® Touring models or electric Empulse® TT, these bikes are just the beginning of a new era in American motorcycle performance.

2Victory-Octane-01-(Large)OCTANE®. POWER TO BURN.
Drop the clutch and light up that rear tire. Octane® makes it easy by following classic American musclecar formula: a powerful motor in a lightweight chassis. What’s left is just what you need to go very fast and without distraction. Featuring a high revving liquid-cooled 60-degree V-Twin with four-valve heads and dual-overhead cams that makes 104 horsepower and 76 foot-pounds of tire-shredding torque, Octane® has the heart of a Pikes Peak International Hill Climb™ racer and a 0-60 mph time that makes it the quickest Victory ever produced. But power is only half of the musclebike equation. There’s also a stiff and lightweight cast-aluminum frame, sharp steering geometry, a tight wheelbase, and 32 degrees of lean angle that together deliver agility previously unknown to American V-Twin motorcycles. Need more power? Need more sound? Check out the Victory’s Stage 2 Kit that includes an air intake and 2-1 exhaust to offer 10% more horsepower and 5% more torque. Fast, capable, stylish and affordable. Victory’s Octane® is the formula for the Modern American Musclebike. Available in Gloss Black ($9,999), Matte Super Steel Gray ($10,499), Matte Pearl White ($10,499) and Gloss Black with Graphics ($10,499).

Take aim at the competition with this modern bobber, inspired by the original bobbers built by returning World War II vets who were hungry to recreate the adrenaline rush of flying a P-51 Mustang® fighter plane. Powered by the 106 cubic-inch Freedom® V-Twin mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed overdrive transmission, the Gunner has enough torque – 110 ft.-lb., in fact – available for takeoff. Combine that performance with the confidence inspiring riding position gained from a low 25-inch solo saddle and pullback handlebars, and you have the ideal recipe for a performance bobber. Available in Suede Titanium Metallic ($13,499) and Suede Sagebrush Green Metallic ($13,899).

Raise your fists and leave the civilized world behind on High-Ball®. There’s no radio or radiator, no saddlebags or sissybar, nothing to take the attention away from the big-bore V-Twin sitting in the belly of this beast. Reach up and grab some attitude with the ape-hanger handlebars and let the 16-inch spoke-alloy wheels roll. New for 2017, choose from a new Suede Black color with black-wall tires ($13,499) or a new Suede Nuclear Sunset Orange ($13,749) color with white-wall tires.

Drop the hammer on the competition with the Hammer S, the most aggressive cruiser in Victory’s lineup. Equipped with a big-block Freedom® 106 V-Twin engine, burly inverted fork and a pair of strong-stopping four-piston brake calipers that look like they came off of a sportbike, extra wide pro stock-inspired 250-series rear rubber, a sleek rear cowl with a hideaway passenger pad and bodywork wrapped in musclecar racing stripes, the Hammer S is a streetfighter with an American soul. Available in Gloss Black with White Racing Stripes ($15,599).

Put some power into your profile with the Freedom® 106-powered Vegas®. Featuring clean custom styling, a color-matched frame, and a contrast-cut 21-inch front wheel, Vegas® is the cleanest looking and most powerful factory custom made today. Check out the tucked-in headlamp, 21-inch contrast-cut Falchion™ front wheel, elegant pullback handlebars, slash-cut muffler tips, flush-mount LED taillight, and blacked-out details that make the rich Sunset Red metallic paint with matching frame really pop. Of course, since this is a Victory, the Vegas isn’t all show. With the same Freedom® 106/six-speed overdrive combination as the rest of the Cruiser lineup, Vegas packs more than enough power to knockout any stoplight challengers, too. Available in Sunset Red ($13,999) with color-matched frame.

Sinister and blacked out, sparse use of chrome details, and a 21-inch contrast-cut Falchion™ front wheel named after a sword known for its versatility and ready to slice out plenty of attention. This is the Vegas® 8-Ball. Front to back, the Vegas® 8-Ball is sculpted by a tucked-in headlamp, chrome gauge cluster, black risers and pullback handlebars, slash-cut muffler tips and a flush-mount LED taillight. Like its sibling, it runs on a Freedom® 106 V-Twin producing 110 Ft.-Lbs. of pulse-pounding torque mated to a smooth six-speed overdrive transmission. Available in Gloss Black ($12,999).

The 2017 Magnum® X-1 takes the stage powered by a 200-watt 10-speaker surround sound audio system. Loaded with custom features such as contrast-cut billet wheels – featuring a 21-inch front – a new custom paint scheme and LED lighting, this may be the only motorcycle on the market that attracts both custom motorcycle fans and concert groupies. Available in Pearl White with Platinum overlay and Electric Red pinstriping ($24,499).

Move boldly through your world on the Magnum® muscle bagger. With a larger-than-life 21-inch front wheel – the biggest wheel ever fit to a production bagger – LED headlight and new muscle colors that demand attention, Magnum makes a mark on anyone who sees it. Turn on the cruise control, crank up the high-performance Bluetooth®-enabled audio system blasting 100 watts from 6 speakers, and enjoy the ride knowing that anti-lock brakes monitor your traction at all times. Available in Gloss Black with graphics ($22,599), Habanero Inferno Orange with graphics ($23,099) and Indy Red Pearl with graphics ($23,099).

Lead your pack anywhere with the overachieving Victory Cross Country® bagger, now with even more standard features including ABS, cruise control and Bluetooth-enabled audio. Powered by our 106 cubic inch Freedom V-Twin delivering best-in-class horsepower and 106 ft-lb of torque, the Cross Country® is a muscular bagger aided in its smooth running nature by inverted front fork, air-adjustable rear monoshock and dual front disc brakes with standard ABS. Carry along what’s important, and make sure it stays secure and dry in 21.3 gallon, lockable, weatherproof sealed saddlebags. Keep entertained with a standard AM/FM/Weather radio with Bluetooth capability to allow you to use your MP3/iPod® as your music source, and amplify your riding experience with premium speakers that deliver powerful, crystal-clear sound. Want to increase your muscle mass? The “Made For Victory By S&S®” Stage 2 Kit – S&S® cams and high-flow air dam together with an available Victory Accessory exhaust system – offers 20% more horsepower and 10% more torque for Cross Country, Cross Country Tour and Magnum models. Available in Gloss Black ($19,499), Suede White Frost ($19,999), Suede Nuclear Sunset Orange ($19,999) and Sunset Red ($19,999).

Cross America in record time. Take the standard Cross Country® bagger – a capable platform for any two-wheeled adventure – hit it with a dose of comfort and convenience features like a 200W eight-speaker Bluetooth® and USB audio system, and what you get is the Cross Country Tour: a V-Twin touring bike ready to go anywhere comfortable and quickly. So set ambitious destinations with the Cross Country Tour®, which offers the largest total cargo capacity on a production touring motorcycle (41.1 gallons). Victory’s Comfort Control System provides upper and lower air controls that channel the wind to maximize comfort while a padded passenger backrest, three-position adjustable floorboards and dual zone heated seats give your passengers the control they deserve. An air-adjustable rear suspension further aids rider and passenger comfort while ABS and new LED lighting helps keep your mind at ease. Available in Gloss Black ($21,999), Gloss Blue Fire ($22,499) and Two-tone Turbo Silver and Black ($22,999).

What if you cast off all convention and set out to build the ultimate American touring bike without any rules or restrictions on how that bike had to look, feel or act? The result would be the Victory Vision – America’s most comfortable touring bike. The Vision’s full-coverage fairing, sculpted in the wind tunnel, provides unprecedented comfort and protection. And because the fairing is mounted to the frame and not the handlebars, steering remains light and predictable. Underneath the innovative bodywork are the same capable underpinnings as all the Victory baggers and tourers, including the extra-rigid cast aluminum frame, air-adjustable rear suspension, and of course a gleaming example of the same four-valve overhead-cam Freedom® 106 V-Twin that delivers such unexpectedly brisk acceleration. Add to that a power windshield that turns wind resistance into your plaything, standard ABS and cruise control that instill confidence, a heated seat and heated grips that keep you rolling year round, and 29 gallons of storage capacity with enough room for two no matter where adventure takes you. Available in Gloss Black ($21,099) and Gloss Blue Fire ($22,099).

1Empulse-TT-022016 EMPULSE® TT. TWIST AND GO.
We’re equal opportunity speed freaks. Whether it burns hydrocarbons or kilowatt-hours, we don’t care as long as it’s fast. The Empulse® TT is fast where it matters most. Built on the same platform that claimed a spot on the podium at both the Isle of Man and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb™, the Empulse® TT accelerates up to 100+ MPH and has a 10.4 kWh battery module that can fully charge in 3.9 hours. Equipped with sport-tuned inverted front forks and an adjustable suspension to provide track-level performance, the Empulse® TT is also the only electric bike equipped with a gearbox – a six-speed transmission – although shifting is entirely optional as it also operates in a twist-and-go mode for maximum convenience. The Empulse® TT … the only electric motorcycle available from a major motorcycle manufacturer, putting it in a class of one. Everyone else is still catching up. This is American muscle at its most modern. Available in Titanium Silver with Havasu Red ($19,999).

    What power same old bike as it was back in 2010. NO up grades to controls radio or even to the motor.
    When didn’t the bike have LED’s.
    Victory what you offer is not worth the loyalty. Gee if I paint my bike white with some decals can I call it a 2017
    Harley Davidson is farther head of the market then they get credit for

  2. 2 BobS Jul 27th, 2016 at 3:41 pm

    The white Magnum and Octane look pretty good, I’m not much of an orange fan though.

  3. 3 NoH2oh Jul 27th, 2016 at 3:50 pm

    They really, really need a new platform. Getting as bad as Suzuki w/the BNG. And I like Victory.

  4. 4 Blackmax Jul 27th, 2016 at 4:37 pm

    It is any wonder that Victory owners are saying they are getting “short-shifted” !!!
    they were the first to get onboard as Polaris ventured into the motorcycle market .
    And now they have seen no upgrades or anything else in about 3-4 yrs.
    The stereo/sound system may have been state of the art in 2010 – 11 but now
    (especially with the new Indian upgrades just announced)
    they are woefully out of date & in need of some serious upgrades !!!
    Nothing is wrong with the motor / drivetrain & the aftermarket has supported it
    Me, I was expecting a Liquid cooled Victory Big Twin by now !!!!
    (I’m still betting $$ that it is coming sooner rather than later) ???

    I am a Victory owner (since 2008). Love the bikes but please allow me to sum up what is wrong with Victory. Not the bikes necessarily but the marketing/design department! Polaris, if you are listening, please pay attention although I suspect you already know the problem:

    2017 Lineup.

    You can have a Vegas “8-Ball” which is exactly a Vegas in all respects but blacked out. Don’t like black. Victory hopes you will like red. See below.

    For $1K more, you can have a “Vegas” which is exactly a Vegas 8-Ball in all respects but you get it in red, which is the only color choice you get. Don’t like red. See Vegas 8-Ball above. Don’t like black, too bad.

    For $500 less than the Vegas, you can have a “Gunner” which is exactly a Vegas in all respects but the tires and rims are slightly different and you can have the same colors schemes as last year. Don’t like that, well too bad.

    For the same price as the “Gunner” you can have a “High Ball” which is exactly a Gunner except it has Ape Bars, spoke wheels and is black. Don’t like black, too bad.

    Victory also offers the “Hammer” which is the same bike as usual, year in and year out. Colors change sometimes. Yawn.

    Don’t like these, Victory would like to sell you the same “baggers” as usual, except they find new ways for their awful paint/design department to ruin the bikes with outdated stripes, wave lines, or God knows what.

    Surprised X HD Rider is perturbed…and he IS a Victory guy..hell, he might even swing back to HD’s new 107ci Milwaukee 8 platform that’s due out next month…never know..stranger things have happened..

  7. 7 Zenaldo Jul 27th, 2016 at 6:28 pm

    And speaking of HD’s new platform due next month, Cyril’s been pretty quiet so far..what’s up buddy ?

    You got no idea how much I don’t care.

  10. 10 Matt W. Jul 28th, 2016 at 8:19 am

    Good looking line up. Still the best value in American motorcycles IMO. One thing I would like to see though someday is a redesign of the Vision similar to what Max Ness did last year. I for one like the Vision for it’s quirky out of the box styling but for a touring bike I just can’t get past the awkward and somewhat cramped saddlebags.

  11. 11 been there done that Jul 28th, 2016 at 8:21 am

    1997 is calling they want their stretched tank back

  12. 12 Matt W. Jul 28th, 2016 at 8:21 am

    Emmett: Well you took the time/effort to click, read, and comment so I think we do 😉

  13. 13 MAGNET MAN Jul 28th, 2016 at 9:01 am

    Likin the Indian side of Polaris more and more.

  14. 14 V-Pops Jul 28th, 2016 at 10:46 am

    No changes to the Vision again? C’mon, I have a 2008 and the only difference in 9 years is the platform-wide tranny fix in 2010 and the paint. By now you would think Victory would have released a new version. Very disappointing to the loyal followers.

  15. 15 BALDY Jul 28th, 2016 at 6:25 pm

    VICTORY – For those who are too embarrassed to ride a Jap bike but too TIGHT to Buy a HARLEY.

  16. 16 spaz Jul 29th, 2016 at 4:53 pm

    Victory is for riders that want MORE power, BETTER handling, BETTER engineering, BETTER ergonomics, LESS maintenance, FASTER American V-twins, and MORE American-made parts. And settling for an overpriced, top-heavy slug that looks like EVERY OTHER hog is not gonna cut it.

  17. 17 Speedblue Jul 30th, 2016 at 11:51 pm

    Go ahead Victory/Polaris surprise us in a good way. Take the Octane engine with some hotter cams, squeeze it into a true sportbike frame and market the thing. It would sell. Offer it with adjustable footpegs, so they could be moved back or forward from the stock factory position. Also Polaris has enough engines in it’s off road vehicles I am sure they could come up with a three cylinder to through into a streetbike, why not sell something else besides twins and electrics.

  18. 18 vrodder Aug 1st, 2016 at 9:03 am

    I have a Vision and a custom Cross Country. Love them both! Sold my 2010 Road Glide and never looked back. However I can’t shake the “red headed stepchild” vibe that Polaris is giving us. Indian is clearly the new favorite and has been since the launch of the new Chiefs. Why the wait for throttle by wire and integrated radio/cruise controls? HD has had both since 2008 and Indian since day one! Here we are in 2017 and still nothing??

    One word to describe the 2017 line up… stagnant.
