Summary:

Loved it enough to own it for over eight years!!

Faults:

I updated the electrical system. The stock system burns up batteries.

Acquired Corbin seat for more comfort.

Replaced fly screen with stock Vegas windscreen.

Goes through Dunlop tires in only 3,500 miles. I replaced the Dunlops with Avons (they lasted for 5500 miles so far).

General Comments:

Mine is the V92SC (Sport Cruiser). It has fatter tires and suspension than the V92C. For a cruiser this thing really can handle the corners.

Once I replace the Stock Seat with a Corbin (solo rider) seat, the comfort level doubled.

Not too much low end torque, but the mid range power is fantastic.

Parts a very hard to come by. Most dealers don't even know if certain stock parts are available.

Dealer support has been fantastic. The technicians love working on these first generation Victory's.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
