Default 2013 sneak peak....zzzzzz

Kind of a big let down, if you ask me. I was anticipating SOMETHING new. Other than paint schemes. Don't get me wrong, I like every bike they revealed, but they didn't really reveal anything. Come on Victory give us a little something extra !

Well we already saw the spoiler. I will agree that it was kind of anti-climatic. I had hoped to see some of the Playboy models in the pics. That would have been nice.

Too bad, very Harley-esque. Hoping the future doesn't continue to bring the anticipation of what the new colors will be along with a price increase as the big news for the next model year.
The 2013 apparel unveil will have more changes than the bikes, due to their cool new logo.

I wasn't really expecting much with this unveil...but was hoping for at least a little something. Oh well...waiting for the 30th.

Very true, Greg. It has a very strong HD scent to it. I would love to see more accessories, and some cool t-shirts are nice for souvenirs. But, not at the expense of detracting from the machines.

A while ago, Victory said they were on track to bring out a new model every six months. So far, they have delivered on that statement. There is still a new one coming.

I hate to see Vic start putting out a large variety of bikes, just to increase the size of the "stable". Granted 17 bikes parked in front of the factory roadshow trailer looks more impressive than the handful available just a few years ago.

The "Cruiser" line could be trimmed. Starting with the Vegas. Four versions ... really?

The new X-Bikes do away with the Kingpin. The Judge pretty much puts a nail in the Hammer's coffin. The Vision will probably be undone by the X-Bikes.

I see the X-Bike line up; The Jackpot staying; The Judge selling like hotcakes and the Vegas being re-worked to a more entry level bike.

Victory hasn't had a "new" model since the Cross bikes...everything else is a paint or trim scheme on an existing model. Personally, I have had my fill of Victory trying to follow HD in that regards. Just because you change paint color or handlebars it suddenly doesn't become a new model. And yes, that goes for the Vegas Judge as well.

Wow. Vic lets slip a few pics of their new bikes and the hostility comes out! At least wait to complain until the lineup is shown completely.
