I'd wouldn't mind a Kingpin with the ballsy new engine. Wouldn't mind one at all.

i own a 06 vegas 8 ball. it has never needed a single repair. with a pipe and air filter kit it is just as fast as my friends suzuki M 109. it beat a SE HD V ROD at our drag strip. i like it a lot with only the 100 inch 5 speed it will ride comfy at 80 mph all day.

Was that the "Pipe-Full O' Fun Kit, Number 7"?

Then I encourage you to be one of the 21K riders taking a Vic demo ride. Part of the reason few people buy Vics is because few have ridden them. They're actually a fine alternative to stuff from the Motor Co, especially in the engine department.

Way to go Victory offering a made in America option in this segment with real horsepower at normal pricing levels.

Free market competition is a good thing.

So that annoying whine came from the transmission? I thought it was from the owners talking about how much better Victories are than Harley-Davidson's......


Just kidding guys, jeeze.... I see a good number of them around my end of town because they have a decent dealership and everybody likes to ride over the pass. I think they make some pretty decent bikes and I hope they do well.
