It is hard to believe that a 2009 Victory Jackpot Cory Ness is still sitting on the showroom floor, but at seeing these pictures we immediately understood there’s a good reason for that: very good company. 20-year-old Petra declares itself in love with its set colleague and although we have serious doubts about her actually being aware of the 1731ccs behind the American motorcycle, we can definitely understand why.
These two beauties make one another shine even brighter, so it is a shame the two don’t come as a package because they would make a very lucky customer extremely happy.
At a first glance, this motorcycle appears to be no more than a 2010 Victory Vegas available in Fire Ball Red, Competition Yellow, Pearl White or Turbo Silver and featuring a side-mounted 106 race plate graphic, color-matched frame and swingarm and blacked-out forks and drivetrain, but it is in fact Victory’s new Vegas Limited Edition model, which they also happen to claim being their “quickest motorcycle ever produced”.
The technical solution making that claim possible consists in Stage 2 cams being fitted to the 106-cubic inch V-twin motor now developing 97 horsepower and 113 pound-feet of torque.
Victory only plans to produce 100 of these bikes in 2010 and they will come with a $15,999 price tag. Orders are being taken until February 15, so if you want one, then you better hurry up. Click past the break for the official press release.
With each year in which Victory comes up with new models, Arlen Ness and his son Cory Ness put their minds to work and create each one’s limited edition models, which are supposed to enhance the visual of the bikes as well as show their customization potential. While Cory Ness designed his own approach towards the Jackpot, his father saw the 2010 Victory Vision as a challenge and gave a try with this bike. The result: an eye-catching touring motorcycle.
Victory Motorcycles has recently launched two brand new models, Cross Country and Cross Roads, which are built to compete with the Harley-Davidson Road King.
Both motorcycles are adequate for long journeys and are built on the same two piece aluminum frame and make use of a 50-degree V-twin motor. The air-cooled and fuel-injected unit displaces 1.731cc and develops 92 hp and 148 Nm.
The engine is coupled to a six-speed transmission, while the final drive is a maintenance free belt drive. Both the Cross Country and Cross Roads models are claimed to have the lowest seats and dry weights in the high displacement cruiser class they’ve just rolled into.
The braking system is composed from two 300mm discs and four-piston calipers up front, while at the back there’s a single 300mm disc on which acts a two-piston caliper. Both models have the same 43mm upside-down fork and a central, adjustable air monoshock.
Also considering the fact that the Victory Cross Country starts at $17.999 and the Cross Roads comes with a $15.999 MSRP, it seems that Harley’s piece of the pie just got slightly smaller.
Victory Motorcycles is offering the motorcycle industry’s only full-line, five-year limited warranty and it’s available on all new Victory bikes sold through its national dealer network. In ten years, Victory Motorcycles has made its mark on the industry by creating a class-leading, full-line of premium cruisers and touring motorcycles based on creative styling and innovative engineering.
Featuring a total cost of ownership that is 22 percent less than the cost of a similar Harley-Davidson over a five-year period, Victory Motorcycles are not only attractive on the road, but built to ride for many worry-free miles. Low-maintenance, high-horsepower and enduring reliability have been the backbone of the Victory Motorcycles brand for a decade. With more than 50,000 units sold, Victory Motorcycles has proven itself in the marketplace and is poised for continued growth.

"Our resale value is in line with the industry leader, and Victory is at the top of consumer satisfaction charts with a 95 percent owner’s satisfaction rating. We work hard to ensure every Victory Motorcycle is built to our highest standards. The new extended warranty is our way to share the confidence we have in our products."

Day one of the New York Motorcycle Show brought the debut of a number of expected motorcycles and a variety of concepts. The most eye-catching of these last is the Victory CORE, a concept which represents the quintessence of a motorcycle as designers and engineers made sure that one piece would do the job of five. For example, the sand cast aluminum frame acts as a steering head, engine mount, gas tank and airbox (ok, that’s only four) so the complexity of this bike is what impresses.
Behind this innovative creation sits the Victory Freedom 106-ci V-Twin with and six-speed overdrive transmission. Although the engine and gearbox are already used on production Victory models, this bike isn’t heading for production – at least not in this form – due to a wooden seat and open exhausts, but Victory doesn’t really plan that. Their goal was to show towards what they’re heading and we reckon they made their point.
The Victory CORE is the work of Victory Motorcycles Industrial Design team so let’s hear them out!
One of the latest Victory models revamped for the 2009 lineup is the notorious Hammer S. A muscle bike characterized by faultless custom design and backed up by a massive V-Twin engine this is Victory’s way of getting the best out of American muscle cars and transposing it into motorcycles.
Victory owners have found a nice way of introducing their space on the web: www.TheVOG.net. They’ve chosen the Vision, Victory’s flagship to pull the site’s logo banner on the horizon line. By the way, all bikes are flying so you’re not having visions.
Among the top models found in the 2009 Victory lineup are the Kingpin and Kingpin Tour, the only classic cruisers built by the new American bike manufacturer. Their clear purpose is to counteract Harley-Davidson and its infinite success, not by copying it, but by introducing a whole new concept of freeway motorcycles.
Victory Motorcycles have reached their first decade of production and which better way to celebrate the occasion than with a limited edition anniversary model? The manufacturer has concentrated on its most distinguishable model, the Vision Tour, which apart from a fiery red color is just a little bit longer and comes filled with anniversary emblems.
What we must definitely mention is that Victory will only sell 100 exemplars of this new, greater model and all have already been booked. But that’s no impediment if you’re not ostentatious as the Touring lineup also contains the already famous Victory Vision Tour, Tour Comfort and Tour Premium, as well as Street and Street Premium models, which are new for 2009.
