Victory’s parent company is In the 1990s Polaris introduced the new motorcycle, the Victory Motorcycle. The Victory Cruiser was introduced in Hollywood at the Mall of America in They have continued to the line of motorcycle and continue to in market share percentage.

riding the Victory Vegas I now understand why they have so successful.

The Victory Vegas that I test drove was equipped with a stock fat 250 mm tire – custom-designed for maximum specifically for Victory by Dunlop®. It has a counterbalanced, torque-laden 100/6 V-Twin power plant. The has 4-valves with an overhead

On the power side the 100 cu. inch is frame mounted, counterbalanced and is to a six-speed transmission. It’s air and oil and features a silent chain-driven oil to reduce engine noise. It 104 ft-lbs of torque and 86 horsepower.

According to the charts and feel of the from the test ride the of the engine peaks out about PRM.

The seat height is and dry weight of the Jackpot comes in at 644 and has a 4.5-gallon fuel tank. exhaust on the Jackpot is a staggered dual exhaust with volume. The test ride pictured and the one I rode was upgraded Arlen Ness “Slash-Ness ” custom pipes.

Not being familiar with the Victory of motorcycles, I was impressed with of the nice little surprises I found as I looked over the One thing that set off the great was that on all of the Vegas Jackpots have the frame and swing arm coated to match the paint For the braking the Jackpot was equipped two 300 mm floating rotors with a caliper from Brembo on the and a 2-piston Brembo caliper on the

Also, Victory has taken the step to assist the owner a single tool for adjusting the belt-tension and removing and replacing the windscreen and or bags. It has a very oil filter and that same will remove the oil drain and can be used to access the headlight and lights. What more you ask for?

Lastly if you can’t get the color and upgrades that you want the factory, they have a full of parts and accessories Arlen Ness for the Victory There are more, but enough the features, how does this ride?

Not having a lot of background Victory motorcycles, David GM with Victory of Mesa, me a very informative walk on the Vegas Jackpot before the ride. He was very confident I would like the motorcycle. “If you it you will like it,” he

I did notice that the seat was almost right for my short I was just about 1 inch of having both feet on the ground while stopped. He me that they have a kit available for the bike. He also that the controls and pegs easily be adjusted for just anybody.

Not a problem, the controls just right.

Starting out in for the test ride I headed on Country Club and rode some of the main streets for miles so I could become familiar with the new motorcycle and let the warm up. The first thing I noticed was a slight whine in the Not sure what that was – but that this engine had about 10 miles on it, so I was not too worried.

The exhaust sounded great and I did that the motorcycle had great response. Turning, stopping and in traffic was a breeze, just I expected. The little Victory was just great. I even had cars come up next to me and me the thumps up sign.

That makes your day.

about 15 minutes I was sure the was warmed up so I headed towards the Just my luck – as soon as I get on the there were about 4 going 10 mph. It seemed as they were entering a lot not the freeway.

Not to worry, after I got on the it was easy to make them in the mirror.

There was a lot of traffic on 60 at this of day so I did not get a lot of time to play with the I just rode for about 20 heading towards Apache playing in traffic as though I was on a The bike had very little and behaved about as well as you expect.

I felt very on this bike.

I only got 6th gear several times. It that you have to be going 60 to 70 you want to hit the last gear. with the great low-end around 60 mph the bike is a little for commute type of traffic.

But in that gear and going 70 or it is great. No vibration at all, I liked that tall for cruising.

Now, someplace out I got to play with the on-ramps. I down and back on several and was very pleased with the of the motorcycle. Again, even full throttle the bike very little vibration.

Performance was very good. I put this motorcycle some in the low thirteen’s in the quarter, not sure of the Also remember, it was not broken in

Now that I got to play with the for a while, I headed back to the thinking that this is a nice bike. I did notice the upgraded exhaust pipes got a warm on the right lower leg stopped. You just learn to your foot a little out from the exhaust.

Small to pay for this good-looking upgrade.

I about an hour on the motorcycle and to the conclusion that it was a pretty nice ride. It rode like a sport bike, for and handling and at the same time was as as some touring bikes I have rode. I know I easily ride this all day on a trip.

Performance was about I expected. I really liked the torque. Not sure what the was for this engine, but I know I did not hit the rev

That is one thing that I like to change, and if you read any of my test rides, you know I like to have instruments to like a tach, for feedback. The 6th is great for cruising.

I was very impressed with the that went into thi on the manufacturing side with of the rider. By this I mean were a lot of adjustments on the motorcycle to a wide variety of body Also the convenience and forethought of the tool designed for the owner for sometimes-needed adjustments.

Lastly, my go out to David Friend at Victory of for the really great service and he provided. I do know that you be in great hands with people.
