We should all know by now Ma Vic is very close to the vest with her new stuff and we will see it only when she wants us to. But I know some of you are going to continue to speculate anyway.

Your dealer is probably wrong. Wouldn't the new engine have to be registered with the EPA? If you can find information on that, that would be better proof.

I selfishly hope not as I was thinking about buying a magnum or cross country soon. I would hate to miss out on something great by buying too early. On the other hand, I'm not so sure about Vic's new direction.

Makes me wonder is this engine supposed to be a v-twin or some other configuration. I'm guessing to keep with the octane it will be a twin.

I'm a cruiser/vtwin guy and if Vic moves away from the style of bike they make now too much I don't know if I'd stay with the brand. Of course if they would make a v rod style twin and put in in a magnum frame, I'd be the first to buy it.

I love this exhaust note:

Yeah I've seen that before. All I was saying is that the water-cooled v rod can sound good in my opinion, unlike some of the water cooled metrics.

I worked for a Harley dealer for sometime and they never heard anything from head quarters till the very last min when they were change something or a new model. I know a couple guys that work on the assembly line and they say nothing cause they want to keep there job. I don't think Vic is any different. Didn't Vic just come out with a new motor and its not 140 horse
