As someone who just traded my Jackpot for a new XC I'm still conflicted. I love my new bike and its way better for the amount of riding I do but I LOVED my Jackpot. I would have kept it but I couldn't justify paying the property taxes and insurance on it every year (Nearly a thousand dollars between the two) for a bike I wouldn't ride much anymore since I have the cross bike now.

I knew the Jackpot was in trouble when they rolled out the 2014 and it was stripped of most of the chrome, given that shitty wheel set and a round headlight. Seriously...round? Part of what makes the Vic's stand out is their angular lines and headlight. I seriously hope they bring it back somehow down the line because even though it steered heavy it was a blast once you got the hang of it.

hey the chopper styled bikes just are not selling at
the moment,everyone is into baggers and bobbers,
and victory is selling the latest fad just makes sense.
and in the next year or so the water cooled bikes
will be rolled out so big things are coming.
as for me i still have strong feelings for my jackpot
and maybe more now that they have been discontinued.
just makes the bike even more exclusive,and everywhere
i go it gets long looks and compliments,sexy with that 21"
billet on the front,and badass with that 18"250mm on the
back rolling on that billet rim.like they say"if you dont get
noticed on it,you aint on it"!

To bad for Victory. I think there are still those that like that fat rear tire look. Just gives me more reason to keep my Orange 2009. When I get ready for a bagger I guess I will just have TWO Victories. Love my Jackpot and so do the Many lookers

Agreed 100%. The main reason I bought this bike was because I didnt see one everytime I turned my head. Now you cant even buy 1 unless you get it used.

I agree, was thinking of getting a XC but I cant part with my 07 ness JP. I have rode with friends with Harleys and every time we stop people are always checking out my JP some taking pics. When I get XC I will also have two in the garage.
