I'm sure whoever designed that paint job is very proud of it, and I have to admit a lot of respect for the talent involved in putting it together, but..... I hope it looks better in person.

That is the Klock Werks Cross Roads that was introduced at the Long Beach IMS.

The paint is over the top but the stereo system, handlebars, fenders and battery/oil cooler cover overlay should get them some sales.

It's own shadow

It is photographed in its own shadow...probably for a reason: One could take only so much of that paint job at one glance. :cool:

GOOD or BAD... I am just glad that people are looking at the Victory X-bike family and seeing that it is a GREAT BIKE and worthy of aftermarket modificiation.

NO I do not care for this bike but what I do HOPE for is that more people with start moding the bikes so that the aftermarket following grows. I hate the fact that we are stuck with Victories JACKED UP prices :mad: There are a few others that are makeing after market parts but thier taste and what they offer are a far cry from mine. TOO EXTREAM or TOO metric bikeish.

The one thing I kinda like is the taller wheels. It might be hard to find good rubber for these sizes, but what's on that one looks proper. Even the tall 21" front seems to have a nice, beefy donut.

Seems like the extra height would buy a little better ground clearance.

I would have to ride one though as the 21" on the Vegas definitely detracts from the neutral manners of the Kingpin. Maybe by increasing the height of the rear (as was done by Klock-Werks), that problem is offset?

You know I went and watched the youtube clip. Man oh man there is more to this bike that I missed.

For example I did not catch until I looked at further pictures but the whole rear fender has been redone.

I LIKE THAT!!!!

Also, check out the trick plate that tucks up and out of the way!!! way cool and would only be used when the bike is parked but still cool none the less.

Its the paint and the metal plate in the front that turns me off I guess. That said.. I love the bars and want to know were to find them.


Klock Werks was so impressed with the Vics of late that they are going to start selling aftermaket fenders. The x-bikes are at the top of the list.

Definitely not my style but to each their own. In the Motorcycle USA writeup as well as on the unveil they keep saying that it's based on the Hard Ball, which BTW had just been released the day before the Klock unveil. They also said they were “inspired by 70s vans, choppers and low rider cars.” I guess if that was their goal then they succeeded. The wheels and license plate were pretty cool though.


However, if the High Ball reference were true, they wasted a lot of money chroming things that were blacked out on the Hard Ball. Things like the headlight, turn signals, bag hinge covers, engine covers, exhaust, etc. Also, why wouldn't they call it the Klock Ball :p

Not crazy about the fender, but I love the idea of retracting my plate and setting off speed cameras!
