Vision fixed faring less wind and a windshield that goes up at the push of a button. XC more wind but you can pack more.
Same horse power same gauge features. Different looks.
You have to ride and decide for your self. We know why we like what we have but what we have might not be what you want.

Patience grasshopper.

If it can get bolted to an Indian, it will. It's just a matter of time before the geegaws that sell now with the bar and shield all over them will be sold with Indian script writ large instead.

The biggest difference will be that what says Made in China on the underside and EST. 1903 topside will still say Made in China on the bottom but they'll change up to top to read EST. 1901.

Tried both wound up with the Vision. My advice don't test ride the Vision if you orefer the look of the CC. If you do odds are the Vision is going to be in your garage.

The Vision's fixed fairing allows lighter, faster steering. Word on the street is the Vision rides and handles better but that may be a "he said she said" sort of thing. Myself, having a Cross bike, I find it boggling that another big touring bike COULD be noticeably better, but 'round here I'm quite a n00b in the grand scheme.

I think Cross bikes are things of beauty, but the Vision sure stands out.

I've demoed both bikes. In my useless opinion (except to me) the XC is pretty damn nice. The Vision is better. It's like riding in a La-Z-Boy. I can't imagine anything any better.

Total different handling with fixed fairing to fork mounted. Center of gravity is major point of vision with split tanks at 6gallon total forward of engine at the backbone working down vs 5 gallon sitting on top. Like one rider told me, you don't get on a vision you get in it and become one. Handling is better IMHO in windy turbulent days. Wind bubble is another major point if your year round. Look at specs but I thought there was some minor differences on gearing. Rider positioning is just like mentioned, reclined with handle bar postion beng different. If your riding two up, your going to want to get her on back of both. There is a difference.

I am going to demo day today to test ride the 14's. When I test rode my vision it was a done deal. I do wish the bags had more storage though. For what appears to be a huge bag it is quite limited. I want to see the difference between the vision and the cc.

06 Kingpin..
K&N air filter
Victory Drag Pipes
ATS @ +4

08 vision premium.. totaled :(
06 kp traded in.
04 vegas lost in flood 2010.
06 hyosung traded in for vegas.

If your gear doesn't fit in a Vision you carry a lot of gear. I go grocery shopping for my mom and get a weeks worth of groceries in the side bags. I took off the trunk. Didn't like the look. Still all my stuff fis into the side bags
