    Wheelbase looks short!
    I guess they dont want to stray to far from traditional Harley Styling! Did they fire all the Victory Designers?

    Why reinvent the wheel? Just change the name.

    Vision, XC, Chieftain , Roadmaster, Challenger all have the same wheelbase. This is a core frame bike, likely the same wheelbase.

    Looks like a water cooled Victory Cross Country with a stupid rear fender.

    Oh well, still not going to buy one

    Fenders are not numbered they don't matter.

    Interesting frame idea with the air handling but I doubt that will breath any better than a cross bike.

    I expected the new motor to replace the 111 and this could take them down that road.

    I'm interested to see what it actually looks like. Not in the market anytime soon, but that doesn't mean I can't be interested, right?

    Indian Wheelbase is 2" shorter than the Alum frame Victorys but it feels about 4" shorter when you get on them. Big Harleys are 3" shorter than the Vic.

    Less than half an inch shorter for Indian, same for my Honda. Victory just used the space between the wheels differently so it feels bigger.

    I've looked these up a couple times.
    Victory Vision wheelbase 65.7"
    Victory XC wheelbase. 65.7"
    Indian Chieftain WB. 65.7"
    Indian Roadmaster WB. 65.7"
    Indian Challenger WB. 65.7

    They are not close. They are the SAME

    I sure don't get why they feel so much smaller. I nearly bought a '18 Chieftain Limited but I could not get comfortable on it. The Polaris indian I felt the most comfortable on was the Roadmaster. But I didn't want that one!

    This new water-cooled machine is intriguing enough to me that I will follow its development. This is the move we all knew they were going to make. Conventional front forks speaks to comfort for me. And I am glad they are using the core frame. So it could be good! Time will tell.
