Victory Cross Country Review

The now-motionless bike in my garage is a Cross Country Tour, and the in question was my first on it.

Since the Country Tour was new, not to me but to everyone else, you might be in my impressions.

Here’s how that went, how the bike performed, particularly good about it, and needs work.

A Short of the Cross Country Tour

For the model year, Victory a couple of fraternal twins, the Roads and the Cross Country.

These Cross models — generally XR and XC, respectively, in ‘Net forums traditional-looking V-twin baggers, the same 106 cubic inch CC) air/oil-cooled, fuel-injected, SOHC, valves per cylinder engine

Victory uses this across-the-board now. The XR and XC also Victory’s six-speed transmission, final drive, twin up front and single disk out ABS, and both have an 18 and a 16 rear wheel (although the are spoked and the XC’s cast, tubeless radials on the latter).

The XR has a windshield and minimalist instrumentation; saddlebags are now standard. The XC, on the other has a fork-mounted bat-wing type of more extensive readouts and system, and hard saddlebags; the XC adds cruise control as these days.

You can read all the specs and pricing as you your way through the Victory web site .

One of the options for the XC was a top case. (It seem to be offered for the XC for 2013, is just as well — it added 10% to the price of the base bike). For the model year, Victory with the XC, did a little tweaking, a bunch of options, and called new creation the Cross Country (or XCT).

The major additions to the Country that comprise the Country Tour are: top case is standard; heated and grips; adjustable passenger a taller windshield (more that in a minute); an HID low-beam for the (and more on that, later on); tubular crash bars (like the XC has flat-style bars); storage-pod and an air-management system, which adjustable fairing-mounted winglets and openings in the lowers.

In 2012, the Victory Cross Tour list price was in black, $22,499 in red or white my simplistic color names do the paint job justice, as we’re a sort of metal-flake, even in

For 2013, the choices are now black as before), or blue and a kind of (all upped $100 to Keep in mind, however, Victory runs a lot of special e.g. if you take a demo go to a show, get on their mailing etc. Also, there’s bargaining room, or at least was, back in January, when I actually signed the at that time, there was a program, and a discount for veterans, and a incentive kickback, so I saved a lot of

Putting the Cross Country Through Its Paces

I picked up my fresh from the crate, in March. During the season, I did 2,000+ miles of super-slabs, a 600-mile day and a couple of 400-mile

At the other extreme, I rode The at Deals Gap, forward and along with many of area’s great roads en Mostly, however, I did a lot of 200- to day trips. I live in the Albany, New region, so my rides include the roads of the Catskill, Adirondack, and mountains or two-laners to Connecticut or to check out pizza and hot dog places for and so forth.

Most of my riding was but some was two-up with my often for more than an at a time in between stops. temps ranged from 50 or so to the 90s. Some — not much, but the riding was in mild rain, and in pretty heavy rain.

In short, I put the XCT through its paces. All I put about 8,400 miles on it in months.
