Default Color?

I most likely will never buy brand new. However, I really like my Vegas and thinking it could be a brand I'd like to stick with. I've been looking at the 2014-2015 Victory's and thinking I could buy a good newer used vegas, hammer, or gunner some day. Nope!

I love this Hammer but your color choice is black... period!

Where is the marketing dept. thinking in doing this? C'mon! Put a female on your marketing team guys! I want a blue bike with white stripes.

Man! I could just see me in my black leather jacket, cutoff jean shorts, and flip flops riding that bad boy.

Black is the fastest color. That is a scientific fact!

They also say once you go black, you won't go back.

Ain't necessarily true!

My bike is white with a bit of medium brown and I'm having trouble coming up with some graphics ideas to make it pop. What I have found is that black bikes seem to have more options that look good when adding graphics. If you're left short on the plain black look at adding pin stripping or thicker graphics. Lots of examples on the net and they are cheaper than an entire paint job.

Not all those who wander are lost.

After they dropped the midnight cherry color, I quit looking at new vics. Found an '08 Kingpin in that color and fell in love. Now they have brought back the midnight cherry in a two-tone on the Magnum. If only I had the money for a second bike, but I ain't giving up my Kingpin.

I just don't think I would enjoy looking at my bike if it was black.

That's why I don't understand the lack of color choices for some of the new Victory bikes.

that hammer is sex, but black is just boring..it's needs more chrome at least.

I wasn't sure of my color choice...it looked ok in pics, but when the price dropped and I finally caved in to go look at it, it was amazing in the sunlight. I will always want color going forward.

Fuck victory

Chrome won't get you home, but Black will always get you back. If it comes in black I don't need any other options haha.
