From About.com:

The Vision Tour ABS is seen here in Crimson and Black paint. As with all Vision Tours, it now comes with standard linked ABS, as well as new tubular handlebars that easily accept mount or clamp-on accessories and redesigned exhaust tips.


The Vision Tour LE has two tone Vogue Silver and Black paint. As with all Vision Tours, it now comes with standard linked ABS, as well as new tubular handlebars that easily accept mount or clamp-on accessories and redesigned exhaust tips.











This 2011 Arlen Ness Signature Series Victory Vision is the eighth straight year Ness has created a custom bike for Victory; trim is blacked out or chromed, and "Scrolled Ness" styling including billet wheels, engine covers, and hand grip ends.







The 2011 Victory Vision 8-Ball has a new deeper exhaust note, a new speedometer with blue backlighting, and blacked out trim. Price is TBD.

Looks like the redesigning of the side bags is put on hold for another year! I had heard of rumors of redesigned side bags in other forums. Was hoping for a little more storage room in these. Of course they would probably have to change the styling of the bike and I don't think they ever had that in mind especially the way the Visions have been selling.

I noticed that they got away from chrome on the front of the bike and went black, also the swoop around the engine is blacked out as well.

What's new about the Engine and transmision??? Don't all Visions have 6 speed overdrive and 106 freedom motors??
From the snippets I have read the 106 engine will come with stage 1 as the transmission is nearly new with very little whine meaning they can allow a little more noise through the pipes.

Understand that when Victory is talking Stage 1 and Stage 2 in regards to the 106 motor, they are talking cams not performance stage kits. All fat tire bikes last year had the "stage 2" cams while the Vision, Vegas, Kingpin and Cross bikes had the "stage 1" cams. They have simply expanded that this year to include stage 2 cams in all bikes except the Vision and Cross dressers... Both the stage 1 cams and stage 2 cams are EPA compliant and both cams are poor performers when compared to non-EPA cams such as Lloydz VM-1s.

Vic is not giving away free performance stage 1 kits... Stage 1 kits are non-EPA compliant and are clearly stamped for offroad/race use only right on the mufflers...

Here is a copy/paste from Vic's website:

The biggest news from Victory is that every 2011model has the Victory Freedom® 106/6 V-Twin, a 106-ci firebreatherpaired with a totally redesigned 6-speed transmission. There are twoversions of this engine.
• The Freedom 106/6 Stage 2 V-Twin with a specialStage 2 cam package unleashes 97 horsepower and 113 ft.-lb. of torque.This engine powers all cruiser models, including the three 8-Ballcruisers.
- Vegas Jackpot
- Hammer
- Hammer S
- Vegas
- Kingpin
- Hammer 8-Ball, Vegas 8-Ball and Kingpin 8-Ball
- Zach Ness Signature Series Vegas 8-Ball
• The Freedom 106/6 Stage 1 V-Twin produces animpressive 92 horsepower and 109 ft.-lb. of torque. It powers all 2011touring models.

Not a huge for 2011 change except a quieter transmission which is easier on the oil. No doubt it will be clarified if earlier transmissions can be upgraded or not. More choice while 2010 and 2011 models are available for sale. At least the annual rumours of certain models not continuing this year have been laid to rest. Good to see all Visions will have ABS, I think, others will disagree. The Ness paintwork looks to be on removable panels which is a good thing. Other paint schemes look nice, would be nice to have one or two extra bikes of different colours in the boys toys garage.
Not sure if as mentioned above all 2010 models have stage 1 cams or not.
The main outstanding wish from my reading of the forum and experience is larger capacity saddlebags without altering the streamlined look.
But overall I still think our satisfaction level is very high.

Have been talking to dealer about getting the 2011 Tour in Silver and Black would be trading in Deer Crusher and my America
No trade in, the money they want to offer is not what I feel the bikes are worth
