Viva (fewer) Lost

Man swagger, and a sense that cool is gonna happen. And for the most part, Victory and does so at a reasonable price ($14,999 MSRP) relative to other American motorcycle Compared to their Classic based around the same plant, the Vegas has been stretched (from 94 length to and slammed (from 28.3 height to 26.5).

The rear (170 60VB/18 Dunlop® Elite SP) got fatter (from 3.5 to 4.5) and the front wheel got (from 16 to 21) and skinnier (from 3 to 2.15).

The oil/air-cooled 50 degree, (1507cc) Freedom V-twin is by a V-shaped badge replete faux bullet-hole indents. embellishment is repeated on the ends of the grips. A teardrop shaped, LED tail light graces the fender.

The stretched and flowing gas dovetails to meet the seat, has been executed with a minimalism while refusing to comfort. The staggered slash-cut exhaust delivers a satisfying without being obnoxious. I probably upgrade mine to obnoxious, but that’s just my defect.
