Default 2016 vision

I own a 2013 vision, and love it. Had many hd baggers, but the vision is a rock solid touring bike. Have to admit tho, would like to see a new vision with something like 150hp and maybe water cooled!

I was at a demo day last weekend. I asked the Victory guy if he thought there would be a new Vision out this year. His reply was short and simple. "Don't count on it". Not that he would have anymore inside knowledge than anyone else.

ATGATT because walking away in disgust is better than riding away in an ambulance.

What's the highest HP output the existing 106 engine can be modified to? When you hit 100mph in fifth gear and still have a sixth gear left, what more do you need? Quicker acceleration to get there?

Water cooled is ok when it's new, but it's dependability wanes with age. I 've owned a water buffalo.

How about power to pull mountain grades 2 up loaded for a road trip or passing or having the big rig change lanes into you with no where to go except acceleration to get you out.

Why does more power always equate to going fast or being careless? ....and yea more power is also a lot of fun.

I read where Kawasaki is coming out with a supercharged bike.
187 rear wheel horsepower. $28k.
Now if Vic was smart they would build a supercharged bike. Heck with the cmas just make a beast

Its now common knowledge that Victory is going to morph into a performance lineup of bikes since Indian represents the cruiser side. So low sellers like the Vision will be the first to 1. Get no changes and 2. Get eighty-sixed. My guess is the only changes we will see in the near future are colors and parts bin add-ons. Ma Vic ain't spending all that time and money on race bikes for the fun of it. Can you say threatened species?

The cross country is a good seller they'll keep the $$ bikes in production for sure. I don't believe they're threatened at all but they will cut the fat out.
