i've read they are lighter which helps them handle alittle better. last time i priced them, they were $1600 rear and $1100 front from victory for the matching red.

what about the billet wheels on the premium? I don't think I want to get scratches on any of them!

I'm sure you are excited, I'd be excited too!

Well... share the wealth by posting pix of both of them! I really would love to see the premium especially.

Here they are. That premium is shiny. I still like the S. My son thinks the premium is the best. Factory pipes have to go though. After this picture, I took them in and waxed them.

NICE!

I like the look of the stock pipes by the way
So which handlebars and seating position do you prefer? The S or the premium?

Pipes look okay, just a little too tame. I would like a little noise and some performance gains. Seating position - I can't say for sure. I like the S, but haven't really even been on the premium yet. It seems like it is okay. My test ride impression was that the premium was maybe easier to control, but I really haven't ridden it enough to state that with much confidence.

Performance Machine is the company that makes them.

$12K for both is $6K each? Hmm, pretty darned good deal. Heck, used '07's with miles on them are going for $8K around here. A buddy of mine has an '07 premium and I think those also came with chromed-out front forks as well as the wheels and other chrome.

PS - Just realized this thread is about 3 months old...
