Aestheticallly speaking, I've never been able to reconcile the proportions of the jugs on Victory bikes.

They appear a little too lean for what are meant to be muscular scoots.

The ovals appear to be a poor attempt at a faux oil bag.

C+ ... Like anyone asked me.

I like that version! I'd love to see Victory put a 126" motor in it...

Victory Engineer explains the deets:



Tossing out the anemic performance and parts being labeled as a Muscle Bike, the explanation of the engineering and design seems fair. It's supposed to be reminiscent of the American musclecar era of the 60's and 70's, not an actual musclebike, despite what the pr guys say.
Yesterday I was like "A VMax would destroy that thing!"
Today I'm like "Oh, it's just another cruiser with a theme. OK."

I like Zach's version with a higher seat, and the "mid" controls look to be further back.

I thought this had the XRoads 5.8 gallon tank. Spec's say it's downsized to 4.5. Shame, really, I was seeing some good useability there.

Not bad, it does have the 70's muscle car theme going on...

First thing I noticed is why the rider has a helmet on??

I have to disagree on that one the Glory Stomper is just plain bad ass and one of a kind, this is more like a piss poor attempt at a cafe racer type bike. Just my 2 cents.

Because one disc is sufficient. It might appear that 'more is obviously better' but in fact (all other things being equal, of course), twin discs do not offer better stopping power than a single disc. The real advantage of twin disc set up is that it offers better cooling for brakes, which improves their performance in very high stress constant use. That matters on track in MotoGP, but makes absolutely no difference for a cruiser on a public road.
