Operating out of Spirit Lake, Northern Iowa, Victory Motorcycles has since its 1998 manufacturing debut lived up to its slogan,’The New American Motorcycle’, and any inkling of doubt as to the veracity of that claim is set to be banished with the introduction of their latest offering; The 2016 Victory Vision.
Engine and Transmission
A 106 cubic-inch Freedom V-Twin engine is the power plant that supplies the Vision’s impressive 101 ft-lb of torque. This counter-balanced, fuel-injected engine, working in tandem with a 6-Speed Overdrive Transmission with helical-cut gears, come together beautifully to produce the smoothly powerful experience every touring rider yearns for.
Chassis and Additional Features
To give you the ultimate riding experience, the Victory Vision comes packed with specialized design features including heated handgrips and seats to ensure the riding season isn’t cut short by cold conditions as well as 29 gallons of trunk and saddle space, weather-sealed and lockable, for all your touring gear space requirements.
Linked ABS braking systems for stone-cold stopping power; easily managed cruise control settings; a power windshield including full-coverage, frame-mounted fairing to ensure you enjoy the ride in all weather conditions, as well as a rear suspension setup that allows for 3.65 inches of travel, all go towards guaranteeing one of the smoothest rides to be had on two wheels.
