That's a loaded question that would lead to too many hypothesis I think. Vision haters against vision lovers, dogs and cats adopting squirrels. It would never end. What is it that has you second guessing. Two very different bikes so tell us what's up. I have talked to more than 1 Vic rider, not noobs either, that didn't realize the air in the shock made that much handling difference.Pros and cons appreciated !
Well now, if that's the case my question would be what mods have you done? If your looking to change up, putting some pep in the step I think will keep you in the same saddle. Your sig doesn't have your configuration so gotta ask. I can tell you that when I added a flip 15" screen it really changed how much I enjoy the wind management. Then came ATS and a VFCIII. Lasted a few months then off to lloydz. I can safely tell you every day I ride the Vision I cannot stop smiling. The power improvement, sound OD the honkers, pulling the front end off the ground like a dirt bike..... I can't get enough of it. If you like the bike but feel the need for a lil change up like something different I think I would go after some HP and torque. I'll leave you with this thought. I run a car tire because I choose to. That son of a gun has a bald streak wearing down the middle? Why? Because it's fun!OK heres the deal. The first time I saw a Vision tour I thought it looked stupid and didn't give it another thought until a year later when I saw one without the trunk. Then I rode a Vision 8 ball at Myrtle bike week and was impressed but I don't like all black also rode a vision Tour but it felt like I was trying to hold up a telephone pole it was so top heavy. Test rode a Yamaha Royal star , not impressed. Then rode an 09 Arlen ness Vision and I was almost giggling like a school girl. So I bought a new Tour in 2011 rode it to Daytona and removed the trunk as soon as I got home. Definitely a conversation piece any time I stop and that's one thing I know I would miss because the XC is very nice but almost conventional. My problem is 3 years is like an eternity for me with vehicles and Im kicking around the idea of changing up.
