    So, buy a new Harley 25K add $8K in upgrades = $33K to get a poorer handling and riding bike with similar performance of a used Victory thats 1/3 the cost.
    "But it's a Harley" Pricless!

    Fuel moto is getting similar numbers with just cams, tuner, pipes on a 114 motor for a fraction of the cost of this 131 engine.

    Forget about reliability it’s a around town Hot Rod. Cost you 10g all in. You also have to include pipes clutch and a new tranny by Baker. That motor will shred a stock tranny bet on that. And why else would you buy one right !

    Fuel Moro, Jim’s, Zippers, S&S. All better options.

    Better than the Harley 131 package. Pretty much garaunteed you get more power for less money going aftermarket. If memory serves the bike in the video came in about 125 hp, 135 tq. Certainly not bad numbers, they’re about 10 each higher than mine. Of course mine is also 200 lbs lighter and only 100”. I’ve seen aftermarket Harley M8 big bore kits from the companies I mentioned, 124”, 127”, 131”...numbers more like 140-150. If I’ve learned one thing about motorcycles these last dozen years or so, doesn’t matter if it’s Victory, Indian, or Harley. Skip the factory “performance” upgrades and go aftermarket.

    Back in the day I could’ve gone to the dealer for a stage 1 set up, plus a stage 3 kit installed on my 2007 Kingpin. This would have given me a new intake, cams, pipes, and reflash. Would have cost over 3k total and moved me from about 78 hp stock to mid-high 90’s. Maybe 99-95 tq to 105-110. For close to the same money after market got me 116 hp and 124 tq :)

    Should have come from the factory that way. Frantic desperation attempt to compete with the Challenger probably costing an extra 10 g's at completion. All in a failed attempt to better Indian's smaller more fuel efficient, powerful and reliable motor. Nice looking bike but that's where it ends for me. I'll pass.

    Even though I won't be getting any big numbers like this , still looking forward to some midrange improvement this week when my Lloydz intake and cam install is done to go along with the 31 tooth pulley. It's all I intend to do on the Magnum. Putting the pulley on my 06 Hammer as well.

    I've seen 140+ HP and 150 Tq out of a 113 cubic inches.... And 100 ft-lbs at 1800 rpm, all done at 5500. 18 less cubic inches too.
