    Anyone have the concept images of the Cross Country replacement that surfaced a few years ago? From memory there was four versions. I am interested to see what bits may have become reality in the Challenger.

    For the life of me I can't find them here or on the wider web. Then again, maybe my research skills are ****.

    Any background to the images would be good too. Like date they surfaced. I heard that they were passed around to dealers for comment.

    This is one of them, albeit poor quality.

    That’s funny because there was a YouTube video and that’s gone now. Did Polaris pull those ?

    I don't. I know we discussed them in a thread so whenever that was would get you close to when they popped up.

    My recollection is this was around 2015. I do recall much more specifically that in 2016 there were lots of rumors of a new large water cooled Vic to be released in 2017 as a 2018 model year.

    Do any of you guys also wonder what the fate of concept and prototype bikes is? I also remember a few years ago seeing concept drawing of three versions of a Victory production model of the CORE. I remember once talking to a factory worker, outside the factory, who said they had already built prototypes, of new and upgraded Victorys, but of course he wasn’t allowed to say anything that would describe them. Only to just wait, I was going to love them.
    I think it would be a damn shame if they were destroyed, but I bet they were. Here are the CORE images. Imagine this bike, close in size to a Vegas, weighing in under 500 lbs, with this new 108...

    Obviously those don't look like they are framed mounted fairings but they look way better than what the Challenger comes with.
