You're assuming that the bike under that cover is THE bike being unveiled.

If you look on the Vic website its pretty obvious that the new bike is MUCH shorter than a chopper.

I'd bet that the bike under the cover is a Jackpot he covered for effect.

How does that look like a chopper? That rake is not even 45.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I just looked closer at the bike under the cover.

If that is a bike and only a bike either it has a 320 or bigger rear tire or has bags.

If and that would be a big IF that IS the bike to be uncovered it would be more of a Jackpot bagger.

Could be just the exhaust pipe stretching the cover outwards. It's not like they used a silk cover that hugs the bikes' curvers - they used this potato sack so we can't tell what's underneath it.

I gotta give Victory a hand on this one. They've managed to get us all running around like headless chickens, trying to guess if it's a bird, a plane or superman himself.

Very possible. We'll find out in less than 3 hours!

To bad it wasn't some wild stretched out XC with a 23 inch front tire and a 300 rear.
Very disappointing
