There were 2 of those at the Quaker Steak bike night during the Honda Hoot. I've got to say that in person it's impressive, and HUGE! I kinda dug the ultra modern styling, and the quality looked really good. One thought I had was "how many pieces would need to come off to work on it?"

While it is not my cup of tea. I am glad there is a company out there stepping it up to give customers the features they want that are not bolt on accessories. Way to go Victory! :D

I'd be inclined to give it a closer look, should I ever get the chance. Sometimes, seeing is believing!

Yepper, definately a big bike, I like the street version more than I like the tourer, but I guess depends on the sytle or function ya want! It takes some getting used to when you see one in person, but they are sweet!

The base Street Model is $18,999 and for some strange reason the looks are growing on me barely :D

If they just toned it down a tiny bit but not quite a retro look i would like it much better. In other words make it look more like a Road Glide or at least change the BeatleBag look.

I will give them an "A" for the effort and since i love vtwins, i would buy one before i bought a GW even though the GW is a very very fine machine. I just prefer a vtwin to a boxer/flat motor. Im not saying its better its only a personal preference.

Please Honda make a nice air ride, hard bag, fixed fairing, 6+ gallon, 6 speed VTX1800 :!:

Personally, I fell in love with the Vision. I got to really check one out at the Hoot. When I sat on it and looked out in front of me, I felt that one would eventually be parked along side my X. The look from any side is amazing. I can't wait to test ride one. With a starting price of $20,000 and a V-Twin to boot, if Honda doesn't get with the program, this will be my next bike. :D

I Like the old car look from behind and old spaceship look from the fifties...

I like don't like the top tour pack on the rear, and it looks like a cross between a goldwing and my bike (with a bit more pointy looks on the saddle bags :)
:lol:


I would definitely like to see it up close.

here is another video clip of their bike from the international cycle show

They do boast a bit too much about building the worlds finest, I think Honda is still a leader.

I have not written this one off only because I like the different look it gives and that is something I did with my VTX.

If I was to choose between a goldwing and the Victory... I am leaning towards the Victory only because Honda is looking more old man-ish than futuristic etc. and I have owned an Interstate and an Aspencade in the past and they perform incredible, but they are not looking state of the art and the coolness factor is something I still like...(but hey.. thats just my taste).

Now on the opther hand.. their concept Vision 800 would look great with a couple of rocket launchers on it...
