Default Freedom 92 1507cc

Could this engine be superior to all other Vic motors? Just sayin...

I'm thinking that with 27,000 on the clock, mine is just now getting broken in.

Mine has 46,000 on it. Pretty good runner for sure but I bet the guys with the 100" and 106" also think they're pretty spiffy.

I just don't understand why anyone would think they'd need more than 1507cc stock engine... well except for a big sucker air cleaner.

I definitely don't want anything bigger than a 106ci......until Vic makes a bigger one

I even looked at the Triumph Rocket! Did not like the way it handled

I just don't understand why they haven't made the 92 modular allowing us to use it in our zero turn radius mowers, our trucks/cars, our vacuum cleaners, grocery baskets, atvs, suvs, rvs, back hoes, cranes, bush hogs, combines, scooters, and etc.

You know, talk about bike handling, the 92 is perfectly balanced and would work well even on a triumph rocket frame or crotchety rocket.

I really like it!

Well, they are the oldest of the Freedom motors, so they have had more time to prove themselves than the bigger versions. It's worth noting the 100" and the 106" have roughly the same power. The 100" have a higher compression ratio. The 106" added cubic inches and went with a lower ratio.

I do think the engine holding 6 quarts and having 5 speeds helps to make it more bullet proof. I really consider them to be keepers. I understand lots of people can only have one bike where finances or space is a concern as well as possibly a wife who asks why they have to have two bikes every day. For a while there I had two 04 KP's, a 1200 Sporty (01), and my XC all at the same time. Selling the Sporty allowed me to buy the heavy duty stitching machine I use all the time and the extra KP went toward parts for the XC and bills. It was nice to be able to park the car in the garage again.

My 04 KP only has the stage 1 upgrade with the K&N air filter, the Vic performance slip on muffs, and I think it had the tune installed. I have never felt the need to upgrade it for more power like I did with the XC. Unlike Vindex, I put most the miles around town on the KP, and save the XC for the longer hauls and if I want to take a babe for a ride.
