2012 Victory models
I looked briefly at the 2012 models. Don't see a Kingpin 8 ball. I've got a 2011 and feel lucky. Like the bike and the blacked out color scheme; plus the 2011's came with the new transmission and big motor. Life is good. Was in Soldotna, Alaska last week which is about 100 miles south of Anchorage.
Went to the Polaris dealer. They have brand new 2008, 2009 and 2010 Victories on the floor, unsold. Seems to me they would be tough to move in Alaska with the short bike season due to weather and the pre-2011 models had the older model transmission and maybe not the 106 Freedom motor?
Would love to see the cruisers get dual rotor front brakes with ABS.
