The 2016 Victory Magnum X-1 is a big-wheel bagger with high-end billet wheels, a 200-watt audio system, an LED headlight and custom paint.

Named after the Bell X-1, the plane that broke the sound barrier with legendary test pilot Chuck Yeager at the controls, the new Magnum X-1 is the latest loud-and-proud cruiser from Victory. Based on the Magnum big-wheel bagger introduced last year, the X-1 cranks the volume with 10 speakers (up from six) and 200 watts (up from 100) of audio power. It turns up the style with Black Billet wheels (21-inch front, 16-inch rear), a smoke-tinted LED headlight and an eye-catching Electric Red over Gloss Black and Platinum paint job. Like all Victorys, it’s powered by the 1,731cc Freedom 106 V-twin with a 6-speed transmission and belt final drive. The Magnum X-1 ($24,499) was revealed to the public at Daytona Bike Week on Saturday night and will be in dealers in April.
