    I got an 08 vision same color. Love it! A foot longer than my old Harley. Rides like a Cadillac compared to the road king.

    funny thing about that question.
    I found the CCT less effected by cross winds. A more stable ride. A bit better wind protection.
    On the down side, I could hear every tick and click from the motor. I replaced the spring washers multiple times in the compensator .. because it was so noisy.

    The Vision on the other hand, I don’t hear much in motor noises. Some of that may have to do with the Lloyd’s top intake filter.
    There was a lot more wind on me so I installed the lower winglets. Witch are amazing at keeping the heat of your legs and keeping you warm in the cold.
    I find the Vision wanders a lot. It is blown around more in the wind.
    BUT
    I would never go back to the CCT. Absolutely love the look of the cockpit while riding.
    That massive looking tank area is so cool to look out over. The steering lock and storage that locks with the key is great.
    And the seat is the best I have ever had on a bike.
    I had the Victory LED head light on the CCT but it doesn’t compare to having LED bulbs in the Vision. It lights the road up bright white. Turn on the cyclops light and it throws a lot of light on the road.

    I bought the CCT new in 2013 because I couldn’t get a vision. Along with everyone saying how great the CCT storage was ect ect.
    But in the end I got my Vision and it’s a keeper.. I can live with less storage..
    It’s just a great bike.
    Nothing out there that I would trade it for......Nothing.

    Wow it did some damage.
    I did a really dumb thing the other day while riding to work .... late for work I might add.
    I passed a car on an off ramp.... and almost took out a guard rail.
    I have a short fuse for idiots doing 10mph

    I installed a center stand on my Vision. It doesnt lift the rear tire off the ground, although it can be adjusted to get the tire nearly off the ground.

    You have any other info?

    Year? Goodies?

    I have seen prices all over the place depending what the bike has, the year, and the miles. Dealers have some listed for what I would love to believe they are worth but sadly don't. I bought my 08 just after Victory was killed with less than 13K miles for $8250 with a tuner, pipes, top filter, and I believe cams. Also had upgrades speakers. It is a 08 Vision Premium, that means it had chrome pieces and some of the panels are metal instead of plastic like the later models.

    I believe it was 2019 that I bought it.
    $13k with 9500 miles
    Victory driver back rest
    Victory trunk rack
    Victory passenger arm rests witch I removed because they look like they came off a wheel chair
    Both front and back tires were new E4s

    A 160 up-front stabilizes the front-end nicely.

    Yes it's on the stock wheel and the bead can be difficult to seat but it is so worth the effort.
