Yeah over a 1000 Victory bikes listed. Another thing I do is go directly to Polaris dealerships because some dealers don't list bikes on CT. I found a few more Visions that way however I have not called to verify they have one. Fake advertising all over the place! LOL

Not a lot left.
and as I found out most dealers don't advertise on CT but found a few more Visions by going to their individual dealership websites.

I found 3 Visions for $5000. 08 & 09.

Sadly....they aren't worth much anymore.

Still aggravated Polaris ditched us.

I haven't found a real direct replacement for the spaceship yet.

I've actually considered buying another new one to mod with the CCT rear bags/fender but only if I can get it cheaply. This business about local dealers giving up Polaris has me spooked.

Dealers are bailing out fast.
I thought the same thing. A cheap Vision. A HMD kit, and a super paint job....cams and PCV -- for well under $10k.

My old Victory dealer told me that Polaris is still using Cycle Trader and has posted that he has ten or so Victory's for sale.

He doesn't have any, zero.

He is trying to make Polaris remove the adds. He hasn't had any luck.

So...............don't believe what you see on CT as far as new Vic's go.

Cycle Trader is indirectly how I found my new 2017 Vision a couple of months ago. There was a listing for a new one at what I thought was a decent price from a dealer in Georgia (I think it was Georgia). So I phoned. The sales guy told me they didn't actually have a new one in stock, but they could locate one for me and sell it to me at the advertised price. So I called his bluff. A couple of days later he called and said he found a new Vision for me, but it was in Oregon (he is in Georgia and I am in Florida) and the shipping would be a lot (he had no idea how much) and would be tacked on to the price of the bike. Whoa! No mention of that previously. I got the impression he did not want to be bothered with the whole thing, and he confirmed that by offering me the name and phone number of the dealer in Oregon. So I called them, bought the bike and arranged my own shipping to get it to me. It sure was a new one, too -- only 7 miles on the odo and a full factory warranty. And the best part was that after sending the dealer in Oregon the money and paying the shipper (who delivered her all that way without putting a scratch on her) the total was still about $1,000 below the price the Georgia dealer had advertised it for (which, as I said, I thought was a good price).

I bought a new Vision on May 25th, right before Promotionals ended (5/31).
I searched locally to no avail here in Oklahoma. 2 Dealers had ad's on CT stating they had both blue and black.
Drove 100 miles for nothing. They had no new Vic's, of any model, even though they had CT ads.

Called around to some dealerships in adjacent states and found a black one Ottumwa, IA, RJ Powersports.
Ad listed $17,200.
Knocked another grand off for Military Service.

I knew what I was getting in to with a discontinued Make, but I have zero regrets.
The Vision is my last bike.

Last I looked, they still had a blue one.

"The Vision is my last bike."

That is what I told my wife. She laughed.
I told my riding buddies the same thing, they laughed as well....LOL

So I am betting that you got your bike from Mt Hood Polaris in Boring, Oregon. I had been watching that one myself...LOL

I got my new 2015 for 15k and the dealer told me that Polaris gave them a 2.5k add back to help with selling remaining stock.
