    Victory Motorcycles unveiled what it hails as its ‘quickest motorcycle ever produced’ in New York today at the IMS. The 2010 Vegas Limited Edition (LE) is the first Vegas model to run with Victory’s Freedom 106/6 Speed V-Twin. Throw in a 6 mm-longer stroke, Stage 2 cams and almost 100cc more power to play with and you’ve got a Vegas that should really romp. To add to its sporty demeanor, Victory jazzed up the Vegas LE with racing stripes down its fenders and tank and added a 106 race plate graphic.

    Victory claims that the 2010 Victory Vegas Limited Edition motorcycle is “the leanest and meanest Victory ever offered. Featuring the Freedom106/6 with Stage 2 cams, the Vegas LE pumps out 97 hp and 113 lb-ft of torque and features a Bonneville Salt Flats-inspired paint scheme.”

    Production of the 2010 Vegas LE is limited to 100 motorcyles. Ordering opens on January 22 and runs until February 15, 2010. The Vegas LE’s will come numbered from the factory as each features a limited edition plate on the engine. Buyers get to choose from one of four color schemes when ordering - Fire Ball Red, Competition Yellow,Pearl White, or Turbo Silver. Interested parties can log on to www.victorymotorcycles.com/vegasLE/ for more details.

    “We wanted to honor racers that have brought Victory Motorcycles to the Bonneville Salt Flats,” says Victory Product Manager Gary Gray. “Bonneville is one of the most harsh racing environments on the planet, and racers such as Gregor Moe, Laura Klock of Klock Works, Matt Waring of MBW and others have helped show the potential of our motorcycles to the world. So we started with our lightest bike and our largest most powerful engine and added a Limited Edition paint scheme to create a unique motorcycle, plus we priced it aggressively.”

    They look cool. Every Victory dealership I have seen open closed with in 6 months unless it was anchored to another dealership. I hope they manage to stay afloat in the current economy.

    Best looking Victory I have seen yet.

    I predict Victory goes under in a few years and HD will be HURTING BAD soon. The baby boomers are starting to get too old to ride and that is who tends to buy these cruisers.

    If I owned HD, I would have sold it two years ago. That was the peak of the cruise market. It is all down hill from here. Fewer and fewer people want a chrome plated couch to ride around on. The younger gen wants performance and handling.

    I think you're on to something. However, Warren Buffet did loan them quite a bit of money to stay afloat and he's normally right.

    With that said, it will be interesting to see if the younger generation picks up the cruiser tradition.

    i know 3 guys that ride victories and all 3 of them can't praise the brand enough, they claim their victories are mechanically bulletproof. if i'm ever back in the market for another cruiser i'll be looking for a victory.

    The best thing about a Victory motorcycle is that it isn't a Harley. :supergrin:

    They will if they keep riding. Your knees, back and wrists will be sorely taxed when you hit 50+ on Ricky Racers.

    FnFalMan will soon be posting pic's of old dudes riding sport bikes.:supergrin:

    If you ride a sport bike properly, there is no stress on your knees, back or wrists. The only people i've ever heard complain about it didn't know how to ride.

    For some of us, the older we get, the faster we like to go. We don't intend to go gentle into the good night.

    LOL, sorry you are not being totally honest. Before my current bike I had a GSXR. It was much less comfortable than the Super Glide I ride now.

    If you want to put your money where your mouth is, tell us what sport bike you own and ride. We will fill and ride until one of us gives out. Loser pays for the trip. Cruisers and tourers, all makes not just HD, are made for comfort and cranking out long days of miles and miles. The sport bike basic design is for speed and not comfort and 800 mile 1 day runs.

    My personal favorite Victory is the "Hammer S".

    Go to the Aprilia Forum http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums and sign up. Then go challenge a guy with the user name of "novos". He'll take his RSVR and ride with you on your SuperGlide all day long, thousand-miles-whatsit.

    Tourers are made to churn out miles and miles in relative comfort. I don't know what cruisers are made to go long distance. Putting weight on one's cocyx (aka tailbone) with the legs all jacked up like visiting a gynecologist ain't exactly a comfortable seating position for long haul.

    I'm a slight wuss so no RSVR for me, but I'll take anybody's challenge for long rides. My weapon of choice is my Tuono.

    It's a 2003 and i find it very comfortable. If you hold your self with your core muscles and don't rest on your wrists or ride with a wierd posture, you'll be fine. I haven't done an 800 mile day, but i've done several 300-400 mile days without problems.

    My point wasn't about how far can you go in one day, it was that you won't be physically injured in the long run by riding a bike with a more agressive riding postion....unless you're doing it wrong.
