From the side, it looks almost '50s Chrysler "Airflow - Vision of the Future"; - America wasn't ready for it then, are we ready now?



All it needs is little "Saturn Rings" around the exhaust, and a "Jetson's" burble to emanate from it, and you can give Buck Rogers a call and tell him his Motorcycle finally came in............

Front end (especially the side) reminds me a lot of a '50s era BatCycle.

Orangs and Chimps. Hell, they already ride most of 'em anyway............

Somebody at Victory has spent way too much time watching reruns of "The Jetsons", or maybe looking at '50s "cars of the future".



How long before they offer bolt-on tailfins to replace those grab handles?

Bloody hideous. And I bet it'll cost 30k and the idiots will be lined up to buy it. That is one ugly bike.

More like the mutant offspring of a honda rune and a K1200LT. it should have been aborted.

No, they invited the BMW designers to dinner and gave them some electric kool-aid, and drawing utensils.

They could've gone less over-the-top with the design and done something like that 2001 press photo proclaiming a Victory Vision Concept. Then all you MOfreaks would be on here posting well thought out comments like "Nothing to see here" or "Yay, another Geezer Glide copycat"...



With that said, WOW!!! Who put the 'shrooms in the designers green tea? It's like a Goldwing got rear-ended by a giant Jap scooter. What is with that rear section styling? If you start at the front and move your eyes back along it's lines, you can see where the tea started kicking in about 3/4 of the way down the gas tank. From there on out, it's an hallucinogenic free-for-all. Just look at that top bag, for chrissakes. You can just imagine some tripped out hippy carving out modelling clay while the soundtrack for HAIR is blasting in the background.

Victory will be changing it's name to the Arlen Ness Motorcycle Corporation...

"and the idiots will be lined up to buy it."



I think that only happens at Harley stealerships...haven't seen many lines at the Vic dealer.
