Victory Motorcycles, Who Uses Them?

Victory Motorcycles manufactures V-twin cruiser and touring motorcycles. Victory has made a name for itself in motorcycle reviews and guides by designing cruiser motorcycles with progressive styling and state-of-the-art engineering.


Victory Motorcycle Standouts

Victory's first motorcycle, the V92C, earned "Motorcycle Cruiser of the Year" honors by the press. In 2001, Victory introduced its line of Arlen Ness Signature Series Accessories, which began a longstanding friendship and working relationship between the Ness family and Victory Motorcycles. In 2002, the company created the Freedom 92/5 V-twin, a 92-cubic-inch engine mated to a 5-speed transmission that debuted in the Victory Vegas in 2003. Motorcycle reviews and road tests of the Hammer, Vegas 8-Ball and Vegas Jackpot followed, as well as the Kingpin and the 10th Anniversary Victory Vision (2009). Victory launched the Cross Roads and Cross Country touring models for 2010, and the flagship Cross Country Tour, which has the most luggage capacity of any production motorcycle, for 2012.
