Victory Motorcycles is a motorcycle manufacturer based in Minnesota, in the United States of America, which began production of its vehicles in 1998. Its parent company, Polaris Industries, created the firm following the modern success of Harley-Davidson. Victory's motorcycles are designed to compete directly with Harley and similar American-style motorcycle brands, with V-twin engines and touring, sport-touring, and cruiser configurations. The first Victory, the V92C, was announced in 1997 and began selling in 1998. Victory has been modestly profitable since 2002.


at the start of my test ride (Joburg to Durban Run 2009). I must admit, didn't like the first photos I saw of the Vision,

but fell in love with the machine after riding more than 1500kms on the 2009 Joburg to Durban Run

in 'cruising mode' on the Victory Vision, riding towards Harrismith

snow and the cold temperatures didn't affect me on the Vision

what, minus two outside?... NEVER, not on the Vision Tour

riding the Vision is like being on holiday... period!

check the low revs, not even 3000rpm @ 130kph

effortless to ride... very spacious and comfortable - photo by Dylan

Thanks to Kevin, Lalarney and the guys at Victory Motor Cycles East for the ride,

I thoroughly enjoyed the bike, it's got everything - just add juice and away you go.
