Has anyone seen a Vision (the motorcycle, that is) on the road?

I'm curious how many they've sold.

I have yet to see one. I've seen a few more of the regular Victories around but not the space ship.

Oddly enough I have seen them, there's a multi-line dealer down the road that really push's Victories so they're fairly common here. The vast majority that you see are Harley's followed by various sport bikes but the Vegas and Vision are out there two..

Probably because I live in a Liberal Paradise where diversity is accepted and encouraged instead of some knee-jerk reactionary neofascist red state like Kalifornia or Illi-noise....

Every Sunday morning about 200 bikes show up at Everglades Holiday Park. The local Victory dealer rode a Vision and was showing it. If you don't look at the back end, it's a pretty nice looking bike. But, especially with the topcase installed, it looks really goofy from the end of the passenger seat back. It's got this weird swoopy shape that seems completely overdone.

Yeah, see I think it looks pretty neat myself. I have much more respect for them trying to cut their own design path than the endless cookie cutters from Japan Inc. In person I think the Vision looks pretty sharp as do all newer Victories. I'm not sure I'd buy one but I can't say I wouldn't either, as I said they're fairly common here because of the dealer being close by. From close examination at the bike show I know they're built like a bricksh*t house, I don't think I'd be too worried about one breaking down.

Free clown suit with every purchase too! The designer of that thing needs to be strung up.

The only one I've seen is the one I test rode with the MOFOs.
