Interesting. Probably get some clarification at Sturgis if they remain consistent with the timing of their messages.

I didn't get that from the article. I couldn't imagine now that Victory finally got bikes with adequate storage that they would discontinue that line.

I didn't get that at all. It does make me excited for the future of Victory though. I am excited to see what they do with Brammo. Would love a sport bike Victory too.

I only meant for Victory. They just seemed to be gearing toward the performance and racing part. Which is fine by me I just dont want to have go to the Asian brands or Indian when I'm ready to buy another tour bike. Specifically a Vision type if at all possible. Wether it be liquid cooled or not.

My dealer thinks the Vision may go by the wayside.... The XC outsells it 10:1 according to him. Know keep in mind we know more than the dealers.

I think it is time for a fixed fairing redesign, new bike or vision update. If there would be a fixed fairing with bags the size of the XCT I'd be looking at it.

Who knows, not me.

Parts added to make her louder, faster and more mine.
Stage 1 filter and pipes, Lloydz VFIII & ATW.
Clearwater Darla, LED GLO, emergency lights and siren.

It sounds like very exciting news for Victory. Our brand is not going away.
