Default Polaris Registers Design for Liquid-Cooled Victory

I know some purists are going to hate it but...

From http://blog.motorcycle.com/2014/04/2...ooled-victory/

Quote:
Polaris Industries has registered a design patent with the European Union for what appears to be a new liquid-cooled Victory motorcycle.

The design sketches, registered and published through the EU’s Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM), reveal a single-seat cruiser with a liquid-cooled V-Twin engine. The overall aesthetic is very much a Victory, with stacked twin slash-cut exhausts and bobbed fenders similar to the Vegas 8-Ball.
The fuel tank has a blockier design than current Victory models, while twin shocks handle rear suspension duties, a unique design for a Victory.



The design registration only covers the motorcycle’s appearance. We won’t know any technical details until Polaris releases official information about the new liquid-cooled model.

There’s also no indication about a possible model name, though it should be noted Polaris has filed for trademarks with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the names “Fatty“, “Magnum” and “Rogue“, one of which may end up being used for this new liquid-cooled model.

So now I've started TWO controversial threads today

Hmm, the knee scallops in the tank have me intrigued.

The single front disk would be a step backwards though.

Maybe on the bulkier crossroads...the judge is still single up front. Has all the grip I need.

I think its rad. Onward and upward right? Now if they abandoned the victory looks all together it would be a shame. But (bearing in mind the tank isn't what they got the patent on and could just be a concept) i like the new "look".

Its news to me and I think this is great! Ive been wishing for a lighter smaller nimbler bike with liquid cooling. A nice revvy liquid cooled engine @1200cc could make a ton of steam
Cant wait to see it. Probably a 2016 model though.

2012 Vstrom Adventure 650
2006 Suzuki M50 (Black) - Traded
