    The fb ads I’m seeing say “Evolution becomes Revolution…” which sounds to me like a new Sportster is getting released.

    admittedly not an adv bike fan, but the Pan America looks kind of cool for it's class.

    The power of the new motor is quite impressive as well. Just hope they don't find a whole bunch of oops in design after the real world gets to beat the crap of these.

    The same motor in the sportster lineup with a similar sportster price could be another home run for MoCo.

    I like my Ultra Limited and the M8. Still liked my Victory(s) better.

    I keep contemplating the S&S cams for it since these motors can be woken up quite easily like the 106" but then I think why, it's running, it's running good, don't press my luck.

    Still not sure these new bikes will save the MoCo or motorcycling in general since the current generation doesn't seem to be into bikes quite as much.

    In any case, I think they're taking the right direction, whether or not it pans out, who knows.

    Can't find any S&S cams for my Judge. Do you have a source? Trying to find a set of 495s other than Lloydz.

    sorry, I'm riding a Harley now, i've given up on the Victory world in general, or at least until I come across a stellar deal that I just can't pass up

    Bummer! Well. there are some incredible deals on Vics out there although I'm seeing fewer and fewer for sale.

    Why would you want S&S cams when you can still get Lloydz???

    S&S gave the specs on their cams, Lloydz treats their numbers like they are the nuclear codes.
    Andrews gives all the numbers for their cams on their website.
    I'm way more comfortable knowing the profile of the cams I'm installing in anything. In particular the valve timing and the duration.I personally am willing to sacrifice a little power on the low end for more above 3k rpm. With 4 valve heads and overhead cams and a lower end that's stronger than death itself, seems like they're begging for some higher rpm, that and I'm not afraid to downshift.
    Built a twin cam that would make power to 7k rpm and that was a pushrod motor. Have a '97 Buell S1 that'll snatch 7500 so quick you've got be on your game to shift out of first before it hits the rev limiter, it's a pushrod motor as well.
    Just think that there's power left on the table with the Vic motor with the cams that are currently available.
    If I had the money I'd probably have Zipper's make me a one off set.

    yeah a small package with a hot motor

    reminds me when one of the Ness boys came out right before the Octanes release saying it was scary fast etc. and they dropped a 104 hp motor on us.

    If this revolution truly puts 150hp and looks like a new Sportster with a Sportster price they may actually have a winner on their hands like with Pan America.

    Guess we'll see soon enough

    and it'll never change.

    Victory's weren't perfect bikes, but damn, theres so much I miss about my '12 model even though I'm riding a newer HD with all the bells and whistles.

    HD does somethings extremely well(such as cruise control is flawless) but i miss the legroom, handling, storage and different look.

    Even half of the new indians look more Harleyesque than they do Indian.

    I know they're dumbing down the look to attract more business, but I'm a firm believer of standing out in a crowd is the better way to go.

    Just shows that they're more concerned with numbers than building a brand.
