I like it, but then again I'm easy. I would put an ADV decal on the oval.

This and the Cross Country are two winners, The two best that Victory has built so far.

Saw it at the IMS show today, looks great in person.

I have a Warrior that I'm keeping for a few more years, so not the bike for me right now, what I really liked at the Victory stand is the Cross Country tour in red.

I also sat on the Hard Ball, I liked the styling and the position with the handlebars a lot more than I thought I would, if I didn't want more of a full on touring bike right now I think I could be very happy riding it.

That spot's for your number plate when you go racin.
Actually I kinda like it. I'd probably like to see a much taller seat, but the majority of the cruiser market likes em lower. Maybe a 2 -1 exhaust where the upper pipe is would look cool too. It looks like they kept the whole thing fairly simple, usually works better that way.

i think it would be nice if they stop kissin butt on the 26" inseam crowd and put a ujm'ish longer flatter seat on it. [for the record i'm only 5'9"]

think of all the storage under the zrx1200 seat..

if i could have just one, i'd get the hammer S in red and white and put the judge 'mid' controls on it.

It would be neat to see a custom ADV decal just for the Judge's number plate.


I like the custom that Zach did. It really points at a direction that I feel is wide open and ready for Victory to be brave enough to enter.
I loved the Yamaha MT-01. A factory sport machine from Victory along the lines of Zach's custom bike would probably be well received.
Get that engine in something that will stop and steer.

It probably wouldn't sell worth a shite....

I'd be interested, though...

I would also think it would give them room to repackage stuff in that under seat area and allow a thinner profile where your thighs hit when putting your feet down. You would still reach the ground the same. Being of short inseam myself, I find that wideness at the seat to a problem when back peddling a 700lb plus bike up a slight incline or in gravel. I also dislike the low seat bikes I've ridden for the reason that they tend to lock you in one place and that's got a very limited comfort factor for me. I guess that's why I've never gone the cruiser route.

Looks nice, but at 660 lbs dry, I think I'll keep lusting after the XR1200X.
