During the International Motorcycle Show in New York City on Friday, Victory Motorcycles kicked off its 15th Anniversary celebration with the introduction of a 15th Anniversary Cross Country Tour Limited Edition. The bike combines industry-leading touring performance, style and comfort with a salute to the first Victory motorcycle ever built. Only 150 of these specially equipped versions will be built.
The first Victory motorcycle—an Antares Red over Black V92C with gold pinstriping—was assembled in Spirit Lake, Iowa, on the Fourth of July 1998. Fifteen years and tens of thousands of motorcycles later, 150 15th Anniversary Cross Country Tour Limited Edition’s featuring commemorative paint and special anniversary badges will roll off the exact same assembly line.
In the beginning, Victory offered one model, the V92C classic cruiser—a bike on which riders are still racking up the miles and memories today. After 15 years of growth and evolution, Victory now provides riders with a full lineup of 15 different Cruisers, Baggers and Touring models.
Starting today, interested consumers should visit VictoryMotorcycles.com and submit an inquiry to have a dealer contact them regarding the purchase of a 15th Anniversary Cross Country Tour Limited Edition.
