Default New "almost" owner here

Hello, I'm thinking of buying my first Victory, I'm thinking a used Kingpin or Vegas. I've sat on a few and really like their styling. Any advice on which model years may be better than others? Basically wondering if some years had issues like recalls, etc. Thanks!

Default Welcome

I am in the same boat as you. Just lurking on here and dreaming to add a Victory Cross Country to my stable. I currently own a Suzuki Blvd. M 109R. Eventually I WILL have the Best of both worlds. Looking for a Victory CC in the Florida area.

Hope you two find exactly what you're looking for. From 2008 up, all Vics had the 106" engine--you'll want that. From 2011 up, ABS and the trannys had more helical cut gears (quieter) and a neutral finder. Also, oil change interval went from 2500 to 5000 miles in '11. Others will be chiming in here with more info...stand by.

Thanks for the advice! Just saw this one listed locally and am wondering what kind of exhaust he has installed, any ideas?

Yes, this applies to both Vegas and Kingpin, except the ABS part.

As far as differences between Kingpin and Vegas, the Kingpin is a bit better at touring with inverted forks and a smaller, wider front tire. You also get floorboards on the Kingpin and bigger fenders.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
