Victory Vegas. Funny what a great looking well-built cruiser does to the bottom-line.

Sales increased 124 percent! Over what? Notice they didn't list total sales.



I like the Vegas and hope Victory does well because any competition for H-D will make things better for consumers.



It would be nice if H-D dealers actually had to "sell" motorcycles instead of being order takers.

You would have thought that the braintrust at Polaris would have figured this out eight years ago, but better late than never. The Vegas really is a desireable machine. I'd consider buying one, even though I haven't owned a cruiser in more than a decade. Arlen and Cory Ness did a top-notch job. He may be the granddaddy of custom builders, but Arlen still has it.

100% correct. I sat on one in Laughlin and it's a very well put together machine. The attention to detail is second to none. Super-comfortable. If I was in the market for a cruiser, this would be on the top of the list.

You are right on. The Vegas is the only cruiser I have picture on my office wall. If only I had money for two bikes!

I agree competition is good. Another American competitor is better. Love the Vegas.
