Default New or Used

I'm currently looking for my first Victory. I've been looking for deals on new 2013 Vision models. But, recently I have come across a few used 08's, One had 9,000 miles (which was sold), and the other has 12,000 miles on it. Would you guys recommend purchasing used instead of new? Are there any differences between the 08 and 13? Thanks for any responses.

I've been very happy with my used 08 Vision, it had 12,400 miles on it.....it cost me about $10,000 less then new prices..it had brand new tires but needed tuning really bad, the guy had pulled the baffles out for more sound and had killed the power, you couldn't pull off from a stop unless the RPM's were around 2500 rpm's..I bought new S1L2 pipes off ebay and a PCV/auto tune AT-300 and it runs great now...best bike I've ever owned.
You'll find all the information about Victory motorcycles on these forums, just ask questions someone will help you out! Good luck!

The best difference between my 09 Kingpin and my 13XCT is the transmission. Much improved. The extra 6 ci is a plus but not nessasary. It's about the money and what YOU like better. Both my Victorys are great bikes so choose what you want.

Nothing wrong with going Used.. Some of my Better Rides were bought Used .. But would check the Incentives Victory is giving on their New Leftover Models before Taking the Plunge ..

Due to recent events, I am looking to sell my 2011 Vision Premium ABS... it came with all the available factory options and I have added D&D slip-ons, a Utopia Backrest, and extra mirrors. It has 14,500 miles and runs great... serviced regularly. Asking $16,500... plain jane 2011 Visions at dealers are selling at $15,999 and have no add ons.

Default New or Used

Ghost, I bought my first Vic used, which was an 06 Hammer with drag pipes and lots of chrome and only 8k miles. I gave $7200 for it and rode the daylights out of it till my back (4th back surgery) made me go with something more comfortable. I traded it in on a 2012 (left over) Vision Tour. I just love these bikes. You won't go wrong with either. The engines are basically bulletproof. My brother has a V92 a 2001 bagger and has about 50k on it without doing anything but regular maintenance and he wouldn't hesitate to hop on it and head cross country. I agree with a previous post that you should check out the dealers for year old "new" models. They want to sell them REAL bad.
Either way, good luck, and ride safe!!

Default Thanks

Thanks for the replies fellas. Your comments were very helpful. I went to look at one used Vision, but they sold it before I got a chance to see it. Found another one, but have not had the time to go see it. I have inquired about the deals they have til the end of the month. So far, the new ones are about 20,000 OTD with the 5 year warranty. I'll be making a decision and pulling the trigger soon.

Thanks,
Jeff
