Default Looking for a used vegas.

Right now I'm doing my research to buy a used vegas no later than spring of 2016. Reasons I have to wait involde job and truck but will have that sorted out. My main questions are what years came with what engines and what year or engine size you guys liked best.

106" is the bomb... Not sure exactly when they started in the Vegas 2010 and newer I believe.

My main concern is would I be disappointed in one engine size over the other. Until late last night I didn know Vic made a 92 ci motor. Is it as good as the 100 or 106 ci?

No one can determine your level of disappointment. Are you coming from an HD, you won't be disappointed. A Busa, don't expect the same ride. A Schwinn, well.............The 92 was the first production engine, followed by the 100, then the 106. From what I have seen all very strong, long lasting motors.

When I was looking, I knew that I wanted a Jackpot. Then it became a matter of the 100 or the 106, basically what year model was I going to purchase. I opted for a 2009 with the 106. My only reason is some of the people that I ride with are sitting on 1800 cc and I wanted to be sure that I could keep up. I could have reduced the cost had a gone with an older model.

You need to determine what is more important to you, newer bike/bigger engine or less cost. I don't think that you would go wrong with any size.

I'm a fairly new to road bikes. I don't wanna pay for the Harley name. But it sounds like I would be happy splitting the middle and not look back. I have found a lot of the 100's for the same price as the 92's in Michigan.

That was my next question was does the 6 spd and the 5spd compare. Do you feel like you have to ghost shift with the 5. I love the style of these bikes. I test road a vulcan 1700 and it felt not necessarily slow but sluggish.

6th is really an overdrive, I rarely use 6th
But its nice to have it there.
Sounds like you need to ride one.
One good ride on a Victory and all your questions will be answered, once you ride one youll sell your soul to own one!

And when you ride one rev it out don't lug it,
Take it to 5000 though the gears and see what youve been missing out on
