Well, that's very... fauxstalgic.

I like it. Looks like they're starting to make a nice departure from the Vegas days (never could wrap my head around that look). Oddly enough, I think this the first bike they've made that didn't look too bad aweful with those stock pipes.

I've got a Vic and was interested in what this would look like. Not impressed. I think my 04 Kingpin is better looking.

The HD Softail Classic is a MUCH better looking bike. One of the few Softails I'd consider owning.

What's this one called again? "The Boredwalk?"

I like this bike enough to want it in my garage. In black. It's a nice blend of vintage styling and modern technology. And I second Auphliam's observations.

Nice enough looking bike. I think Victory should take a hint from you and call the motor the "Ubiquitus Freedom 106" engine instead of just "Freedom 106/6" It has more of the '40's aura they seem to go after.

I have to say I think Victory's on the right path with their more Buck Rogers styled bikes, trying to copy a Heritage Softy is a bad move IMO. The other bikes have a distinct style, love 'em or leave 'em you can always tell a Victory apart. Blurring the lines too much just puts them in the same cookie cutter style as Japan Inc.

I cannot actually "see" anything WRONG with the bike, but it does absolutely nothing to (or for) me.

I felt more emotion the last time I picked-out a Refrigerator. White. Frigidaire. Sideby. Icemaker w/crusher & chilled water in the door.....

That's Interesting, because I WANT to like the Victory brand, even though I've been other-than with their last few offerings (Vision, et. al.).

Default I've Tried

I have really tried to like the cruiser style bikes but I just can't seem to do it. The Boardwalk looks well built. I can appreciate that fact. These bikes do not stir my inner motorcycle self. Obviously I am not a person who should judge this style bike.

Seeing dealers are discounting the Judge model, surprise surprise, I don't think making an uglier clone of the Softtail is the way to go.

Unless the bike is better looking than the HD version, this too will be discounted.
