I like it, especially after seeing the better (outdoor in good light) photos.



I'm not a fan of heavy bikes or "feet forward" but I gotta congratulate Victory on having some cojones in the design department. It looks cool & I think it'll sell.

In the video the guy summed it up nicely: just because the bike is American it doesn´t necessarily have to look old.



Of course those with conventional tastes will complain (and they are the majority, otherwise they wouldn´t be conventional), but hey, don´t we already have enough ordinary design for ordinary people? What is needed is more avant garde, not more of the same.



Kudos to Victory.

Great link. and Excellent Point ..Yep I totally agree when you look at the two silver bikes you can see where the big front end concept comes from.. I like low slung cruisers better than choppers, but he went to far in this case.

You say you think it's great, but how many of them will you buy? That's the only thing that counts.

Watcha got? I loved the old R80s and R100s from the 80's.

Default Gang Bang!

I think Arlen Ness was bringing up the rear. Maybe Cory, too.



Oh, that is so gross.

Abominable. There were some good ideas but they were stretched just too far . . . And they cannot have even considered the practicality of the riding position.
