That is the goofiest looking motorcycle I have ever seen, period. Mark Blackwell has re-invented the Detroit panic of '58. Since I've seen ZERO of the marque anywhere anyplace at anytime, one can only summize this model signifies the death spiral for the entire line of Victory motorcycles.

They should think about giving drug tests to the folks in Victory's motorcycle design division. A '59 LeSabre looks svelt compaired to this styling fiasco.


Feh...

Default Ineffective terror tactics.

Emperor Ming the Merciless does not feel threatened. Flash Gordon's new TerrorCycle cannot defeat Emperor Ming's armies. No attempts to panic Emperor Ming's people will succeed. They are already made immune to such terror tactics by being forced to ride BMW1200Cs.

Maybe, El Guape, but it's just outlandish enough that they might sell a plethora of them.

Ah longride, keeper fo the flame, still holding to the values of more-of-the-same school of thought? As the big baggers go, this actually has some style.

Default Retreat from the future

I'll get flames for this, but here goes: when a country loses confidence in itself or what it is doing, it looks back to a previous era where it was doing rather better, and reassures itself. For thirty years or more H-D have been recycling the fifties - and with this new Vision (lovely title, what with its connotations of impossible illusion/delusion and all) Victory have gone back even further, to a time when the US led the world in its modernity, and dared to imagine an even more modern future, styled like Buck Rogers. What this Vision, and all the low/bobber/dragger/bagger Glides are doing, is providing escape from an unacceptable present to a fondly recreated golden era of the past. Interesting how these golden eras are each placed one step back in time from wars in which the US found itself a sometimes unwilling participant...

Until you go buy one and show us a picture of you standing next to it, I'd say you are just running your mouth (as usual).

I'm terrified. This may just set back motorcycle styling 60 years. Bleh!

I was watching "The Animal" with my 8 year old son the other day. After one scene he asked me: "why do guys always look at girls' butts?" Perhaps the same will be true with the Vision; what looks weird and stupid to us one day often becomes what we like the next. As for my son, one day, once he has a chance to ride one, he'll undoubtably change his opinion about all those funny curves and "extra" features.

PS: I think it's butt frikin' ugly in the photos. Maybe it isn't so bad in real life.

Red face forward they...think.

Points for a truly new design that may/not be considered cool in 20 yrs, but not my own...vision.
A hearty no to the trunk.
