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.
