Default Re: Victory is Ours!

WOW! The comments here are mostly negative but when I first looked at the photos of this new spaceship, my jaw dropped to the floor! I love the look of the "Street" and would seriously look to buying one if I was in the market for a heavy cruiser. I'm not too keen on the luggage of the "Tour" but hey, give Victory credit here whether you like this retro-futuristic machine or not. They're making a great name for themselves as "the other guys" and hell yes, their stock is way up too. For a small company, they're dominating the "buzz" out there and pushing the envelope. No other motorcycle company can ignore the impact a small, innovative manufacturer like Victory/Polaris can/will have on the next generation of style in motorcycles.

What about the 8-ball Neal? The 8ball is the only one i truly love in the victory line, but if I had one, it would definitely need new pipes...

I don't think the bad rap the Aztec got was un-deserved. Chrysler was coming out with the PT Cruiser at the same time. When they both launched Chrysler was very quickly adding production capacity while pontiac was renting storage space for an ever increasing unsold inventory. I understand the aztec has a lot of neat features, the fact remains that it is UUUUUGGGGGLLLLLLYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!

Not buyin' it, Foxy. The Asstek is just awful looking.



My previous vote for Ugliest Vehicle was the AMC Matador, but the Aztec took it away cleanly.



The sight of a green Aztec almost makes me what to hurl. There is one around here that has a set of Wal-mart spinners on it. Swear ta Gahd it does!

I did the same thing - if you get a good look thru 360 degrees it really has some nice lines after you get over the initial shock of the concept. If you're in the market for a heavy cruiser and you want something unique, here it is.

Ok, Victory....take your Freedom engine and slap on a 6 spd tranny, drop it into a bike like the Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog, throw on sportbike suspenders and a sport-touring screen, wrap the exhaust out the back, and call er good. I call it the Victory 20-20. Ok, well I think I am still going to buy the SV650S.

Oh, I agree that it's an unattractive vehicle. I'm just saying that things like the Element and Scion xB are just as ugly, but are lauded as being different and innovative with little mention of the styling.



Amc Matador...classic. I'd have to add the the Ford Mustang to the list...the 'foxbody' years. Ugh. Especially the 5.0l convertible with the whale tail.

He's got a point; I was driving a 93 Park Avenue. I'm 27 and I lust after a Buick Lucerne or Dodge Charger. My priorities in cars are very bizarre for my age.
