The California Emissions Board has been the go to plafe to find out new model names in the past. Victory doesn't show any certificates or registrations for c3rtificates to date. Also Victory doesn't show any new engines so it's a safe bet that if they come out with a water cooled bike (with the Indian Scout engine) it won't be until after the July dealers meeting and Sturgis.

So far it looks like this will one of many years that the only changes are going to be new colors. If that's the case prepare to read posts with people complaining!

Isn't that the truth.

In the past Victory would throw a little teaser video or ad at us. Usually a good few months before show time. I don't think anything new is coming this year. The Magnum X1 still steals the show. Lloyds has something under wraps but it's probably an Indian.

2011 Cross Country. D&D's wrapped - VM1DR cams - PC5 - LLoyds high performance filter and ATS (Adjustable Timing system). Power output 115HP/115FTLBS tuned by KMC. Klock Werks flip shield - RF/PBR300x4 amp - Hertz HCX 6.5's - Victory 6X9 Magnum Lids - Victory XM - HMD Black Pull Backs with Victory performance grips. PIAA Led3 driving lights. accessories from Arlen ness - Witch Doctors - Noemtz Designs - Kuryakyn. Blacked out treatment powder Coat by PPC Stuart fl.

I finally finished reading that interview. Sounds like a lot on the horizon but nothing much for this year. Maybe a new paint job or something minor like that. It also sounds like the Indian's are currently selling better than the Vic's or maybe the stock on the dealer floors has made the need for making more right now a bit of a non issue.

It also looks like Victory will be getting a water cooled sport bike/super bike in the next year or two with the 156 Pikes Peak bike engine being the prototype for them.

The "Core" bike everyone asks about is actually the basic frame on the X bikes and Visions but they want to build a cruiser style bobber similar to that design. I see that as a good thing and would be a new bike in that class to maybe be a modern version of the Highball.

It also sounds like Victory electric bikes will be the Tesla of motorcycles with performance and looks in mind. Those who are interested in something bland just to go from point A to point B will need to look elsewhere.

Never know though. Polaris has been known to surprise us but right now it looks like a flat year for something new.
