2012 Victory Vision Tour
As far as luxury cruisers are concerned, there are plenty of options to choose from in its segment. But if you’re looking for a bike that has a Victory badge on it, the Vision Tour will answer your call. Returning in full-luxury format and providing riders with comfort, protection, convenience, and much cargo space, the Vision Tour makes no bones about all the benefits that come with it as a luxury cruiser.
The distinctive body style of the Vision Tour incorporates a full fixed fairing with the set-up of the bike fixed for touring, thanks to the side-storage compartments, and a lockable trunk with 29 gallons serving as extra cargo space. At the trunk of the Vision Tour is a passenger backrest with additional audio speakers incorporated to pair with the ones integrated in the fairing. The bike also features a comfortable 2-up seating, a low driver seat height of just 26.5", an electric windshield height control, heated seats, and heated handlebar grips.
Handling is also a premium quality of the Vision Tour with the linked abs providing Victory Vision riders with confidence-inspiring braking. High resolution sensors on each wheel monitor the wheel’s speed, and should they sense anything out of the ordinary, the abs system provides instant, effective braking, slowing down the bike and allowing the rider to maintain control the whole way.

106 CUBIC-INCH FREEDOM V-TWIN
At the heart of the Vision Tour sits the Freedom V-Twin power plant, expertly balanced for the perfectly controlled explosion that delivers 109 ft lbs of hole shot torque. Maestro of the motorcycle world, it’s what keeps man, machine and highway working together in perfect harmony.
DUAL ZONE HEATED SEATS AND HANDGRIPS
The Vision Tour lacks for nothing in the comfort category, and as proof we offer up heated seats and handgrips as exhibit A. Together they offer the best means of enhancing your road warrior reputation, by adding precious road time to both sides of summer.
29 GALLONS OF TRUNK AND SADDLEBAG SPACE
True to the bike and shaped by the wind itself, the injection-molded trunk and saddlebags provide enough storage space to comfortably get you and a friend all the way to points unknown. Don’t hesitate to bring everything you could possibly need for the ride - even the all-important hair dryer.
6-SPEED OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION
The highest performing transmission on the road receives the power generated by the massive V-twin and seamlessly turns it into something you can use. Neutral Selection Assist and helical-cut gears ensure every shift is as quiet and smooth as the one before it.
Standard on the Vision Tour, the Victory Anti-Lock Brake System doesn’t discriminate between dry, wet or rock-strewn pavement. No matter what the conditions, ABS monitors what the wheel is doing and gives you consistent, smooth braking from the handlebar lever down to the rubber on the road.
After making every other aspect of long haul cruising as effortless as possible, the throttle hand still had a beef about being overworked. By adding precise, automotive-style cruise control, the right mitt can now simply hang on and enjoy the ride.
