You will feel a little heat at a stop on a hot day but if you have ever ridden a Harley in the summer you will love this bike, night and day. The Victory is air cooled but does have an oil cooler that helps pull the heat out of the motor, combination of both, some would ague semantics, the cooler and the air going across the motor. Harley also has an oil cooler but it only circulates the oil in the crankcase. Victory actually circulates the oil through the cylinders, guess where all the heat is generated? Exactly, the cylinders. Victory actually downsized their oil coolers in the beginning because they had a problem warming the engine up. You ever get a chance look on YouTube, there's some videos of the Victory motor cut away next to a Harley motor cut away. Pretty interesting when you compare the two, Victory took the time and engineered a motor from the ground up, did it right the first time.
