I am waiting for a tester with the last name of VICTORY not Harley, and then we will see if the verdict changes.

I felt they did a fair comparison. They really didn't trash the Victory and as a prior Voyager owner they hit on the facts that made me up grade to my XC. The Ultra is a beautiful machine. I wouldn't buy one but it doesn't take away the fact that it is the most popular touring bike out their. The Vic CCT is over styled in my opinion which was the only real reason why the testers put it 2nd from what I read. It out handled and it will out power the HD once those boys learn how to ride it.

One thing I would like to see these comparisons bring up is what you can do to these bikes motors after taking ownership. They all run lean and they all can be improved in the performance and heat dept. They all have more power on tap.

With approximately $2500 to $3000 allotted to each bike which one would show the best over all gain in performance, efficiency, and ride ability? We all here know here who that winner would be!

Like HD we have choices too. The blacked out 8ball CC the CC the CCT and the Vision . Nice variety in my opinion and not a dam one of them looks like a Harley!

Yeah- it wasn't the worst comparison I've seen. Better than say Car/ Driver who were apparently known for resetting online polls repeatedly until they reflected the result they wanted, lol..

Anyway- I gather that the Harley had the full infotainment setup on there, and the Big Vic does not offer this- correct? Obviously it would have been better to compare the bikes set up closer to the same, but the harley had more- therefore it costs more. I don't think they said anything that would sway the masses from where their minds already are. It's all in what a particular consumer wants in his bike.

(disclaimer in case I just said something stupid: I read it kind of quick-- at work :P )

At the very least, they didn't conclude the comparison by saying the Harley won because it's a Harley.

I agree and that's what *I* happen to like about them, but then *I* am probably not the prototypical croozer dood. As such, dealer abundance and events, surface finishes, smoothness, infotainment, and a bike that runs cool in its stock form are all benefits that others may find more important than corner carving and 1/4 mile times on their 900 lb luxobarge.

Not a bad comparison if you just watch the videos but when they say that Vic completely outperforms the others and just a few seconds later say it placed second in their ratings it makes me wonder where their heads were inserted.
I wonder why they compare the "Rushmore" premium model to a stock CCT. A closer comparison would be to compare a Ness CCT to the Rushmore. Rushmore is their premium variation this year.

I agree- that is a special edition Harley compared to a stock vic.

They didn't mention anything about the Ipod/Iphone connection on the XCT. They didn't mention anything about the good fuel mileage of the Vic or the bikes on board trip computer/ multiple trip meters.

They also skipped over the fact that if the XCT tips over, it will only go to the 45* point. If the Harley tips over to the crash bars, it's going all the way over to the ground.
