difference between vision tour and eight ball vision

What is the difference between the victory vision tour and the eight ball vision besides the top baggage compartment?

Uhh, where do you start?

The 8ball's seat is 2 inch closer to the ground. It comes in black, with a blacked out engine. It doesn't have the luxuries you get with the touring model, like the power windshield, stereo, etc.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

eight ball vision I think is faster cause of the stealth look about it. I don't think the 8 ball comes with a radio but for 500 bucks you can put one in.
The premium comes with heated grips and seat and a electric windshield. The seat and grips you like this time of year and in late fall. I have a premium model and with the heated stuff I ride a month longer then the others.
If your going to buy a vision buy the premium and paint the aluminum panels.

Here's the differences I can remember off the top of my head. ALL BLACK!! Bblacked out wheels, handlbars, engine, and other panels. No trunk, no radio (a grand to add!) no power windshield ($250 plus labor) no cruise ($400 + labor) total seat height 2 inches lower (seat is one inch lower and rear shock is one inch lower, thus ground clearance is one inch lower).

I just bought a new 2011 8 ball adding pwr wind. cruise. I haven't even picked it up yet!! Will add amp and ipod (per Mississippi design), then next month will add CFR exhaust and perhaps a PC5 with auto tune and air kit. Also need a backrest and luggage rack that Vic no longer makes!! (What are they thinking??) Have inquires out to a few custom guys to make it for me.

I bought the 8 ball as I preferred the look and the lower ride. For me it was cheaper to add a few things to the 8 ball rather than changing around the tour.

Whatever you chose, ENJOY! It is an amazing ride. And I have ridden everything from Nortons to Harleys, crotch rockets and more.

No ABS on the 8-Ball either, and only one tipover point (forward). Vision Tour is the only Victory with ABS available.
