Default New (Used) Vision Tour

Greetings all!!!!!

I've been off the forum for a while due to my work load just burying my rear-end. Finally got a little breathing room but I have feeling it's going to be short lived...

Well... after losing my '16 Gunner last year in an accident and being laid up for several month, I finally decided it was time to get some wind therapy again. I had been pursuing Cycle Trader, etc. looking for the right bike. I was looking for either the XC Tour or the Vision Tour... and found some nice deals, but they were a little farther than I wanted to travel. Week before last I stumbled on a 2017 Vision Tour... 530 miles... for a great price AND right down the street from me. So Saturday I pulled the trigger and brought her home!!!! I almost doubled the miles between Saturday and Sunday... This baby is SWEET!!!! I might only have a couple weekends of decent weather left before I have to put her away for the winter... but she will be waiting for the Spring...

Cheers!!!!!

Mike

One of the last of the Mohican's as they say. Hope it gives you hundreds of thousands of miles of smiles.

Did you mean 2007?

The side badges, bars, and boards are wrong for a 17 unless the first owner changed them out with older model parts. If they did that to then just put on 500 miles they wasted their money but its a win for you.

I like the lit side badges and chrome from the older models.

I'm not sure if anything was changed. It was sold as a 2017... I'll have to check the VIN when I get home. If it isn't a 2017... there's a dealership that has some explaining to do... The warranty expires in January... and I got the extended warranty...

That's interesting.

The older models known as a Tour Premium or Street Premium came with chrome driver floorboards as well as passenger boards, they had a oval shape backlit side badge, oblong chrome bars, and metal trim instead of what later changed to plastic in a few areas.

The newer models known as a Tour come with black floorboards and passenger boards, a nonlit V side badge, and black round bars.

From everything I see in your pic it's an older model. Even if the dealer did change parts and pieces with old stock they should have explained that to you.

Honestly depending on their story you may come out ahead. That premium stuff was nice and missed by many.

I really want to hear how this story turns out!

BTW, if you use an online insurance company like Geiko, you can access your VIN through it if you have access to the internet where you are now.

Any word on what is going on?

BTW, the mirrors mounted on the bars are not right either. Those were added by somebody. The bike comes new with a plastic call plugging that hole. A few do mount mirrors there but most replace the plug with a RAM ball, but oddly the older models didn't have the holes.

I'm curious too. Just for reference; here's an all black 2017 Vision Tour.


And the OP's bike to make it easier to see if there are any differences.

I'm seeing the badges, rear floorboard covers, arm rests, and mirrors to either be an addon or replacement. Do you see anything else VVB?

Some people, to my surprise, do like the old badges better than the new ones.
