2008 VICTORY Vision Premium. One look at the all-new Vision Street Premium you everything about the effort put design and engineering. It’s a new of an American luxury-touring motorcycle, takes modern style and as far as it’s ever been.

The is long and low with remarkable and maneuverability. The seat, floorboards, and modern design are engineered for riding comfort, while a new Freedom. V-Twin with overdrive produces smooth, performance.

Victory claims the Vision totally redefines the what it means to be an American And it’s true; we have before seen any American with so much fairing and so groundbreaking design. The new bikes are tourers, much like a Gold Wing, Harley-Davidson Glide or even a BMW K 1200 LT.

But the Tour is different, Victory are the new jumbo tourer in-between the tourers and the Honda’s and BMW’s. Tour and Street gets a big V-twin with a gigantic and new technology. The design is very and that is more BMW or Honda Harley-Davidson.

So this is a quantum leap for a of big air-cooled V-twin cruisers.

The is the fully faired and equipped of the new Vision range. It’s on the most outrageous of the four models shown earlier in Victory’s Vice President Blackwell and Greg Brew, of the Industrial design department us that this concept out as much more popular the people, Victory owners and that took part in the

A very high percentage of people wanted to buy the Vision without any second thought and beats a maybe by a long

What we know that was not in public are that the new engine with new double exhaust more power and torque any other Victory motorcycle. And displacement has not been revealed yet must be a reason to that. So we a bigger engine than the 1634cc V-twin.

We spoke to Stewart, Stacey is Victory’s Manager. Stacey first us where the new 23 litre fuel is. It is a double tank linked at the top cap.

But the special is that the tank is up front under the fairing. On each side of the fork under the fairing is an fuel tank. This was partly done to get the weight right to add more weight to the but it is no small engineering feat.

Stacey also showed us that could be very to actually try (not). Stacey and his team found out that people that ride big bikes have a bad tendency to the big beasts and then struggle to get it upright again and with a bill for new plastics and levers. The new Tour and Street have designed in such a way that it fall all the way to its side!

It will with the footboards! If this is the case it could be the invention of the You can drop your big heavy and all you get is a few scratches on the footboards and the chassis made to withstand such an

Another important detail for the people around the world is the new They are now 3 piston branded However to me they look much like the same combi outfit that we on the Honda tourers for instance.

To me shouts ABS ready! Stacey not reveal to us that that was the case, but after mentioning to enough people in the Victory during the night I got a good that I was pretty much on with my observations, and not only on the If Victory launches ABS it will be as an though as Americans don’t to like such aids

The enormous front fairing an equally big headlight winged by the biggest mirror/blinker combo. The parts you can see on the fairing are made of All the aluminium parts can be replaced by parts to make the Vision or Street even more than it is.

The windscreen is electrically from the handlebars and another that separates it from the Wing that still an old fashioned manually adjustable The front mudguard also like one of the industries biggest. The has been in the wind tunnel for the and this is very important on a big bike.

You don’t want to twist the bike into whilst doing 110mph on the Below the mirrors are an air-deflector in see-through plastic to make easier for the pillion passenger. It has designed to remove turbulence at the back of the bike.

For me the highlight is the beautifully designed end of the bike. A big V shaped stop symbolises the intentions in the name, Victory and Vision. Even this is one of the biggest motorcycles we ever seen, the design and the makes the Vision look narrower than it is. And the narrow end is mighty tasteful and we suppose the would go straight for the Vision

But the top box on the Tour is firmly a part of the and enables a full 110 litre capacity and a luxury Queen Particularly on the Vision Street you can see the at the back clearly. The narrow, but panniers stretch a little bit like on an old Cadillac’s wings and the exhaust is perfectly designed to fit the flowing lines.

It’s like I can’t wait to one and follow another Vision because it must look cruising down the highway its long and low stance.

The Vision and Vision Street launch in Beach, California, USA was the biggest press event for Victory I have never seen a big bunch of proud people in the room before the launch of the It was obvious from looking at and to every single person in the team that night this was a historic day for the American

Tony Meirovitz, Victory relations specialist kicked off the with a few well prepared and Mark Blackwell, the Vice showed confidence like Tom when he talked macho in So covering the event was a privilege to me as a as well. I understood that event was just as important to motorcycles as when Armstrong set on the Moon was to NASA.

So as regard to the and to the new product, congratulations, it’s a to Victory!

Victory launched the 800 concept in California late This was done to let people that Victory intends to do different. Something very and the new Vision Tour and Street are the evidence of that. Vision 800 never happen in the conceptual but with the new air-cooled touring Victory is showing us how serious are about the future.

From it is going to be extremely difficult to any air-cooled engine due to new regulations into effect. So whatever is from Victory motorcycles or needs to involve liquid engines at some stage. has got their own liquid cooled technology in the V-rod models, but hasn’t yet.

This is where the strategic with KTM comes in handy. if KTM are buying back a big part of its the partnership continues at a smaller than before. But being a big there is no reason to believe Victory have not already the technology it needs for the future.

So the looks orange for Victory and KTM even though Polaris acquire another European to escalate developments by 2010. will be for sale by 2010; MV Agusta or Moto Morini? No one but big things are bound to happen a company as optimistic and forward as Polaris and Victory motorcycles.
