    I test rode a 2011 Vision today with 26k miles o it...... It ran like a champ (all stock), handled, and rode..... Like a Vision. They're asking $9000 for it. I absolutely love riding a Vision, but I'm not 100% on the looks, and they are very squeaky when you're riding it. I am leaning toward buying it, but there's some hesitation in me because of the aforementioned issues.

    Every vehicle car or bike that is plastic has squeaks. The ride will be remembered long before the squeaks. Just enjoy the ride and try to eliminate them as you find them.

    The squeaks are cancelled out by my pipes and stereo.

    I can tell you in the Street configuration the squeaks are much less. Seems like most of them come from the trunk.

    Sunset Red, love that color. My 12 was that. For me the Vision is a love/hate thing, you either like the looks or not. But as they say, can't see what it looks like when you are sitting on it.

    It is a comfortable bike, rode 800 miles straight thru from americade a week ago on ours, 2-up pulling a trailer.. only thing that got tired was me,especially at night fall, by then had less than 100 miles left... squeaks or rattles (as I call them) are mostly from the trunk on mine over a rough bump, rough railroad crossings etc... going down the road on relatively smooth pavement I do not hear any rattles.. just the rough stuff.

    This thing is totally stock.... What mufflers are you running ?

    I've been saying that !!

    Already messaged Witch-doctors about the availability of the trunk filler panel.

    Nothing crazy. Just factory Stage 1 pipes on one and Stage 1 Level 2 on the other. The Stage 1 were bought used and they may have been modified as they seem louder than other Stage 1 pipes and my Stage 1 Level 2, however I've never had it next to another Vision with Stage 1 to compare.

    What do you mean “level 2”?

    The squeak you hear could be rear belt out of alignment. Dealer should fix it.
    If it doesn't have new tire front and rear offer them $750 less. Lay of the floor and look at the rear tire and everything else

    Victory had Stage 1 and Stage 1 Level 2 pipes. Level 2 were said to give better performance.

    Tires look real good, and it's not belt squeak. It sounded like plastic panels rubbing together.

    Oh it is, and they are. It's normal though. Going down the road I don't hear nothing but the motor and tunes. Like mentioned above I do hear them going over tracks and bumps but it's nothing to get me off of them. Hell, I bought two and will take a third.

    I was initially on the fence with the “looks” too. But once I rode one (and realized the convertibility of the bike...tour or street mode), I was sold.

    Love how they look without the trunk, but also like the convenience of the added space the trunk gives (like stowing your helmets).

    Initially was interested in the CC, but got buffeting with it and like the frame mounted fairing for ease of steering.

    Best bike out there...bar none.

    27A2D099-9F2D-4F26-8EA0-61B3D3B2C7D8.jpeg I have this same bike and color. Bought it with 9300 miles, driver back rest, top and bottom deflectors, and Vic option gps 14 months ago for $9800. Now she has upwards 17,000 miles and absolutely no issues. Two things I really like is the ability to take off the trunk and the adjustable windshield.
    She’s a real joy to ride.
