    Press Release:

    Victory Leads the Industry With the First-Ever Guarantee

    MEDINA, MN (March 1, 2013) – “We build the best bikes on the planet and we’re excited to introduce the Victory Guarantee as a way to back that up,” said Victory Marketing Manager Josh Fulkerson. “We are the fastest-growing manufacturer of heavyweight motorcycles, and we are confident you’ll love your new Victory motorcycle, or we’ll refund your money. That’s the Victory Guarantee.”

    Victory builds the world’s best cruisers, baggers, and touring bikes and stands behind them with the industry’s only guarantee that gives riders a chance to buy it, ride it, get the full ownership experience, and if you’re not satisfied, you’ll get your money back. “The Victory Guarantee” applies to new 2013 Victory models purchased in the United States or Canada from March 1, 2013-April 30, 2013. Complete details and conditions are available from participating Victory dealers and at VictoryMotorcycles.com, where you can also see the full line of 2013 Victory models, a complete line of accessories designed for each model, and a new collection of superior technical riding gear and casual wear.

    “We’ve been saying ‘Ride One and You’ll Own One’ for over a year, and we’ve seen thousands of riders take the challenge and join the Victory ranks,” Fulkerson said. “We’re so confident you’ll enjoy riding a Victory that we’re stepping up to our own challenge and putting our money where our mouth is. If you buy a new Victory and aren’t completely satisfied riding the best, just bring it back.”

    wish they had that guarantee on the accessories they sell. Either you can't get them or they don't work. It's a big waste of time and money. I can't complain about my two Vics tho.

    None :(

    That's nice but I wonder why it's only for 2 months? I wonder if you get the full purchase price back or if they'll pro rate it depending on mileage, condition, etc (which they should do).

    I'm interested to see the fine print in this deal but a good marketing ad to say the least.

    That's insane! Awesome, but insane!

    I picked up a 12 XR & was kinda kicking myself after I saw the red, blacked out '13 XC. I stopped by my dealers last week for an open house & Sr started talking to me (always ends with me on a new bike somewhere down the road!). Not this good a deal but promised to see that I was happy in the end.

    Down as soon as the test rides start up again to take the XC for a test ride & may make the change if the numbers are right!

    I'm with you on the fine print issue as well as what size hoops does one have to jump through to get your money back. 2 months of standing by your bike which is March and April, I would like to see the sales history for those months. Why not stand behind the bikes for 12 months from now till the cows come home. Just putting it out there.

    What's this got to do with buying a bike, It's good for everyone as snow doesn't stop you from buying it only stops you from riding.

    Not the exact same as the bikes you're thinking about, but I just sold a Vrod and bought a Judge. While I haven't been able to really ride the Judge yet (other than thedemos I've been on), I think I made the proper choice. The Vrod is a very nice bike, but the large rear tire became tiresome. I'm looking forward to the quicker handling of the smaller back tire on the Judge!

    As of this moment, it appears Victory has not yet revealed the details on its website. They do have this promo graphic posted:

    [​IMG]

    But, when you click on it, you see this:

    [​IMG]

    Here's the link to the page where the fine print information on this promotion "should" be appearing shortly:

    http://www.victorymotorcycles.com/en-us/Victory-Motorcycles/2013/Pages/victory-guarantee/details.aspx

    Let's keep an eye on this and when the details are revealed, let's post the information here so that we can add our two cents!
