    Just saw this as well. Victory To Race Electric Prototype At Isle Of Man TT has more info and pictures. Very interesting indeed. I am very intrigued by the IOMTT and look forward to it every year, now I have even more reason to watch! So cool that William Dunlop will be one of the riders. Side question - anyone in the US know how/where to get a US format DVD of the Joey Dunlop documentary "Road" that came out last year? I would love to see it.

    A rebadged Brammo. That was quick.

    I didn't see this coming. The isle of Mann is a serious throw down. I hope Polaris does well.

    Oh so does this mean the Victory brand isn't dead after all? Lmao! Let's hear from those folks. I'm sure some will even say this is a parts bin bike and not a completely new build from the ground up!

    Great stuff! I'm glad to see victory doing this. Like I've stated before there will be new things coming from Victory I beleive.

    to think in the time it takes you to normal shift from first to second they can be doing 100 mph.
    Electric bikes at ITT run around 150mph

    That is awesome. I demoed the Harley Livewire last week, and I don't think it could even complete the Isle of Mann course. It has a range of 43 miles in "power" mode, and wasn't living up to that number even though the ride was much less than aggressive due to the chaperone.

    Yes you dummy, obviously Polaris is just trying to fool us into thinking they're not going to kill the brand, just so they can kill the brand. Duh! A brand new drag racing team reportdedly with a brand new engine under development to meet NHRA specs, a brand new Pikes Peak prototype racing bike with it's own all new engine, and a heavily updated and improved Brammo racing bike coming out as a Victory for IoM TT racing...if I were a smart man I think I could see a pattern developing here...racing, racing, racing...I wonder what could possibly be the future of Victory? Yeah, it's probably done as a brand 'cause Indian is getting all the love.

    I used to think late July 2015 would see a new ground up Victory model, probably a Vision replacement. I've been surprised by all three of these racing developments. Now I seriously wonder what's in store. A brand new GTL killing Vision would be awesome, but I think we're going to see a lot of very cool and surprising bikes in the next few years. Of particular interest to me was the revelation that Victory is working with Parker (Parker Hannifin) on the improvements to the electric bike. This leads me to believe that in the near future we will be seeing a lot of state-of-the-art tech making it's way into Victory motorcycles.
