#4 – Victory Cross Country Tour


From the get-go, Victory’s Cross Country has been one of our favorite bikes. In our aforementioned Best of 2010 Awards, the CC was named Best Cruiser, and when the Tour version was unleashed a couple of years later our Pete Brissette was still smitten, calling it a “winning combination” in his August 2011 review by lauding its “generous” suspension, impressive power and “voluminous” luggage capacity.

Nothing’s changed – except Victory’s status in the motorcycle marketplace. Because of the success of the Cross Country (and Cross Roads), Victory is now considered an established player, pumping out quality products on par with any other American V-Twin motorcycle manufacturer. Take that, Indian.
