Default vibration on 2014 CCT ?

Thinking about getting a new CCT. Been reading about vibration issues.
Demoed a 2013 CCT. Wife complained about vibration coming through the back rest and it was and short demo. Is this common with this bike? I know v-twins are going to put off some vibration, but if comes to the point where it causes things to come loose or body parts getting numb I may reconsider. Have any of your passengers experienced this vibration? I will eventually test drive one, but I thought I would get some input from people who already have one. Thanks

I won't say complained but the wife has mentioned that the XCT has more vibration than the V4 Venture that we traded. I just keep the revs up a little to keep it smooth.

+1 on keeping revs up. 2500 and upward. I came from a first generation Venture and I do not find the mild vibes of my XR a concern and passengers have not complained.

I have read the vibrations are at 70 mph and over. Maybe I'm not getting it since I never had a V-twin. It seems the higher the revs, the faster you go.

I was experiencing some vibes over 70 mph, but they went away with a set of Avon Cobra tires with Dyna-Beads in 'em.

I just did 1800 miles to colorado and back in 4 days, hi-way cruise about 83. My wife didn't say a word about vibs and I enjoyed it all. So I can't help you.

My passengers enjoy the vibes, some even miss the ol yammy XS650! SIck and twisted or what :-)
Honestly I've never ridden a CCT but dont see why itd vibrate any more than a Vegas,
but this is one of the smoothest bikes Ive ridden after a life of excess on XS's
Ditto to keeping the revs up.

My brother (RIP) had a Honda CB350 twin back in the time he was single and girlfriends loved to ride with him cuz the vibrations would bring on orgasms. I can hear it now ooooo ahh don't stop!

I have never noticed a vibration from my XC and my girlfriend has never mentioned it to me. But I am also coming from a rigid and the vibration on that bike was very noticeable so to me the little I feel is nothing. Wish I could be more help

Precisely RICZ, my XS650 twins caused a few ladies to orgasm too, thosr two pistons rising and falling together in unison and firing alternatly shook off more than just mufflers and blinkers,it was great for removing knickers too.
Not that Victory ownership is any handicap in that area either
