Cruiser bikes need not be all about looks and imposing presence; it’s also great if it can back up its stature with some great storage, unprecedented comfort, and unbeatable performance.

That’s what you get on the Victory Cross Roads Hard Bagger. Despite carrying a long name, the Cross Roads Hard Bagger is the ideal all-around cruiser that can take you out for a great ride on some weathered asphalt, breaking the wind to your heart’s content.

Packed with a 106 cc Freedom V-Twin engine, the Cross Roads Hard Bagger is the kind of stripped-down touring purist that takes its performance credentials very seriously, capable of delivering 97 horsepower and 109 lb/ft of torque. The bike’s expertly balanced credentials make for a controlled ride that feels like you’re being shot out of a cannon. Joining the powertrain is a transmission system that’s considered one of the best in the market.

Other standard features on the Cross Roads Hard Bagger is Victory’s very own Anti-Lock Brake System, a set-up that monitors what the wheel is doing and gives you consistent, smooth braking from the handlebar lever down to the rubber on the road. As far as the aforementioned storage space is concerned, the Cross Roads Hard Bagger can be set-up with a number of storage options, ranging from 17.4 gallons of soft bags storage capacity to 21 gallons of hard bag roominess.

Victory has carved a reputation as a well-known motorcycle builder that caters to the luxury-touring motorcyclist. But Victory is more than just the proverbial one-trick pony. When it comes to targeting the hardcore Amerian rider, they also have the means to take care of that demographic.

Victory continues this for 2012 with its popular hard-bagger, the Cross Country . Due to the popularity of the 2011 model, Victory resisted on making any drastic changes on the Cross Country. Instead, the Polaris-owned company continued on the bike’s unbridled success by offering a 2012 model that comes with a mean low styling combined with comfort, much cargo space, and an integrated audio system.

At the heart of the Cross Country is a type 4-stroke 50o V-Twin engine that makes every other aspect of going the distance as effortless as possible. By adding precise, automotive-style cruise control, the right mitt can now simply hang on and enjoy the ride. The bike also carries single overhead camshafts with 4 valves per cylinder, self-adjusting cam chains, hydraulic lifters, and Electronic Fuel Injection with dual 45mm throttle body. As far as the suspension goes, the front of the Cross Country carries an inverted cartridge telescopic fork with 43 mm diameter and 5.1" travel, while the rear comes with a single, mono-tube gas, cast aluminum setup with constant rate linkage and 4.7" / 120 mm travel.

The Cross Country is also equipped with the stylish and protective fork-mounted fairing that provides excellent protection and houses instrumentation and an integrated audio system.

Victory has been designing and engineering the Cross Roads and Cross Country motorcycles for their touring range for the past three years. That got our attention and while we’ve recently talked a bit about the Cross Roads model, it is now time to see what makes the Cross Country model even better. The competition isn’t out of our equation, so we’ll start by getting to know the bike better before starting being impressed (because there’s plenty to be impressed about).

The Victory lineup is now even more attractive for long haul thrill seekers also thanks to the Cross Roads model, which is all-new for 2010 and which brings the most horsepower and cargo capacity in its class.

Powered by a 106-cubic-inch Freedom V-Twin Engine, being able to carry as much as 21 gallons of cargo and being designed in strict accordance with the Victory style, this motorcycle goes against Harley’s notorious Road King and stands all the chances to prove a much better choice for the buck.

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.
