First of next year's machines launching this weekend
YOU might still be finishing 2011's mince pies but Victory is set to launch its first 2013 model this weekend.
Little more than a teaser video has been released so far about the machine. While based around the firm's existing 106 cubic inch 'Freedom' V-twin, it moves away from the firm's traditional cruiser/tourer field, instead becoming the first Victory-branded muscle bike.
The video shows a traditional round headlight where most Victory's have a more intricately-shaped lamp, a fuel tank that follows Victory's normal, heavily-sculpted style and what looks like a wide but small diameter (16-inch) front wheel. Oh, and the bars are relatively low for a Victory, too.
The bike will be revealed at this weekend's New York motorcycle show, with none other than Full Metal Jacket's 'Gunny' — R Lee Ermey — pulling the covers off. The firm will also show a custom version made by Zach (grandson of Arlen) Ness.
