    Exactly!!! That makes things better for us current owners because if the strategy work then Victory will be around for a long time to come.

    I don't know about who it will appeal to. Rumor has it that HD is dropping the Cross Bones which is their Bobber.

    I thought 57hp sounded really low. Why would anyone de-tune the engine. I double checked the live feed info and it still says 57hp but the official web site does state 97hp. Bobbers are in style nowadays and I am sure it will sell but its just not my style. Greg

    If they discontinue the crossbones maybe youll convert some of the harley riders over.

    I like it. Exactly what I thought it would be and even comes with a two tone paint job and white walls I thought might be on it. Two position bars, to change to pass bar height laws, nice touch. Wider front forks with 130 mm front tire. 150 rear tire. Thinner rear sprocket. Black rims with spokes and white walls. Looks like it will be a fun bike to cruise around the city on. Brings a traditional offering into the lineup. Competitor is the HD Street Bob and the High-Ball kills it hands down. I can't wait to get a picture of the two side by side. Can anyone help with that?

    I like it! It's at a price point where you can let your imagination go for a bit and play around with different looks. For me, not much needs to be changed. Not a fan of whitewalls and spokes, so that would be the first to go. More of a second bike option for me as well. Maybe might draw in some of the younger customers wants and needs. Love that they kept the 106 motor. Looks great. I like it.

    It's a decent bike and would be a fun 2nd bike, but come on Victory pull your heads out of your A$$ and quit screwing us Canadians over. Dollar is at par and $1560 more expensive up here. I can see a slight mark-up for extra shipping and getting them cretified in Canada, but almost 12% is a little excessive.

    I like the bobber style! But make an 8-ball one of these please! all black denim. No white accents! Go without the whitewalls! and please put a bigger rear tire on than a 150mm. When they do that I'll be in to buy it! Wire wheels are a good style and love the ape hangers!!! So far it's a good start! Hope to see it at NY. show on Sat!

    I was a customer of Victory because they were so polar opposite of Harley, but if they're merging onto the copy-cat highway, count me out. If I want a phucking Harley I know where to get one, and it's not at the Victory dealer. Who in the hell wants 16" spoke wheels and tube tires? Kidding me? It's 2011 for cryin' out loud. The rest of the bike is just a Vegas 8-Ball. Nothing new there at all. In fact, all they did was ruin a perfectly good bike by F'ing up the handling. I can't wait for the 4-speed jockey-shift version! That's it! I'm no longer a Victory Cheerleader.
