I have t admit that when I read about the
changes of the Cross Country.........I am somewhat peeved.
Since every Victory Motorcycle is going to be running with the Freedom 106/6 V-Twin, the American cruiser motorcycle maker went in and updated its transmission as well. Specific changes weren’t yet listed, but the modifications aim to reduce driveline lash, which Victory claims has been cut by 66%, reduce gear whine, especially in 4th and 6th gear, and to make it easier for riders to shift into neutral at a stop courtesy of a “Neutral Assist.” It’s also said to “improve ridability and deliver a more appealing-sounding transmission,” a claim we’ll soon test first-hand at the upcoming Victory Motorcycles 2011 press launch next month.
I bought the last bike for 2010 at my local dealership. If I had known they were going to change it........
