Default Judge not selling well?

I've been looking at the Judge since it came out. I haven't been able to seriously consider one until I sell my current bike which may finally happen soon. I've been to three dealers, each a couple of times, since last year and it appears that all three of the dealers still have their original Judges on the floor. Is it my imagination, or is the Judge a bit "slow" to take off sales-wise?

Time to beat them up for that deal that comes once in a lifetime. Good luck!

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

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!

I'm in Virginia. There are a number of Judges available, I'm trying to figure out if they're going to be around very long. I used to have a 2001 Sport Cruiser. I really liked the bike but it sold in very low numbers, had very limited accessories and was discontinued after two model years. It seems as though every bike I like is the model that tanks quickly. I don't want to buy a Judge and have it end up the same way the SC did.

This is exactly why I WOULD buy a Judge bro, because it isnt EVERYONEs bike! Honestly, it was a swaying point in buying my Vision over the Goldwing and Roadglide as well as a reason to hang onto my TC as they are not on every corner. I think the Judge is a good lookin ride and don't think you will have the problems with dressing it out with the Vic Vendors we have online now and injinuity for what they don't have. AND as CR said, time to shop for them Deals. Im down in Chesapeake and wound up buying my VV in GA. Believe it or not, the deal was so good it covered my flight and gas back plus I got my breakin done in one whack and had a great ride!

My 2 cents... Get the Judge if thats the bike you want. What happen with the SC since the HAMMER engine and SC style was NEW to the scene is not going to happen now days.

Keep us posted!!!!

Default Judge not selling well?

The judge is just a Vegas with short fenders and mid controls. I say you should get the bike you like and not worry about it being canceled or dropped from the line up.

If you like the bike then get it, who cares if it gets discontinued. Victory may change the names of the bikes but they use only a few platforms so there will be parts that are interchangeable with other models. I have a Suzuki M50 which was not a popular bike but I like it and it now has a small cult following. The XR is kind of in the same boat as the judge but that is the bike I wanted so I got it.

I just bought a Judge! Could explain the deal i got on it...pretty good i gotta say. But like a couple have said...in a weird way i like the fact they may not be selling like the vegas (for example)...not on every corner. And if the model does go tits up, again like others said, its not like you wont be able to buy parts that fit because in the end its a Victory...

I called this on the day they announced the bike. It's very generic looking, has nothing exciting about it, and is essentially a parts-bin bike branded as a cool new thing.

It'll be discontinued very quickly.

With so many other gorgeous and exciting Victory models available, this one was doomed from the get-go. They should have just listened to their customers, and created something to fill the gaps in their lineup instead of tossing out a boring retread.
