I read somewhere that Victory will introduce a naked sport bike along the lines of the Yamaha MT-O1 and also a fully-faired sportbike, both possibly within the year. Anyone hear anything similar?



Oh yeah, first post! Woo hoo!



And there was much rejoicing.

The bass is thumpin' on their site, too bad their loop is a little sloppy.



The bikes look pretty cool too...

Hopefully their motorcycle quality is better than their sleds. Any Victory owners out there?

I used to work at a Polaris dealer and unless they've made giant leaps forward in the last five years you are on thin ice. We eventually dropped them after they repeatedly refused to honor our warranty claims.

Something along the lines of a MT-01 would be nice, as the Yamaha will only be available in Europe. Too bad that Victory didn't give the Hammer a more standard riding position like the Super Glide Sport has. I guess that we are just lucky that Peter Fonda didn't ride a custom Harley with the handle bars behind the rider or every poseur wanna be would be much more likely to crash than they aready are with their gynecological exam riding positions.

Maybe they'll bring it over if enough people scream loud enough.

Their Sportcruiser was a flop, so they might be gunshy about doing something like that again. The market seems to favor chrome-and-fancy-paint cruisers with pap-smear ergos.



Fully-faired sportbike? With that engine? No way. And if they've been developing a sportbike engine, then they've had Manhattan Project-level security preventing information leaks.

True, but the Victory sport cruiser was butt ugly, and not very sporty either. VWW

I prefer to call it the "camel humping posture".
