The Freedom 100 engine is being discontinued to be replaced by the Freedom 106 which will be available in two versions.
Victory’s 2011 cruisers will be powered by the Stage 2 version with a special cam package claiming 97hp and 113 ft-lb. That includes the Vegas Jackpot, Hammer, Hammer S, Vegas, Kingpin, Hammer 8-Ball, Kingpin 8-Ball, Vegas 8-Ball, and the Zach Ness Signature Series Vegas 8-Ball.
The 2011 Victory tourer lineup, featuring the Cross Country, Cross Roads, Victory Vision Tour, Vision 8-Ball, Cory Ness Signature Cross Country and Arlen Ness Signature Vision will be equipped by the Stage 1 engine. According to Victory, the Stage 1 version produces 92hp and 109 ft-lb.
All 2011 models will be equipped with an updated six-speed transmission. According to Victory, all-new helical-cut gears reduce gear whine while an updated mainshaft design reduces driveline lash by 66%. The new transmission also comes with “Neutral Assist” which makes it easier for riders to hit neutral when coming to a stop.
The transmission will be covered by a new 100,000 mile warranty. Oil change intervals have also increased to 5,000 miles.
The 2011 cruiser models get an updated instrument panel like the one first introduced in the Victory Cross Roads. The new instrument cluster includes analog speedometer, blue back lighting and LCD displaying time, gear position, tachometer and diagnostic readouts.
Victory is also offering a new optional trunk for the Cross Country and Cross Roads. The Lock & Ride trunk can be installed without tools and incorporates a passenger backrest and dual audio speakers. A power cord connects the trunk to the bike’s electrical system to power the lid’s tail light as well as an electrical outlet for accessories.
The base Victory Vision and the Arlen Ness Signature Series version will now come standard with ABS brakes.
