Celebrating its 15th anniversary, Victory Motorcycles announced its 2014 lineup at the Polaris Industries dealer meeting in Washington, D.C. Headlining the new model year motorcycles are the Cross Country 8-Ball, the Cross-Roads 8-Ball, the new Cross Country Factory Custom Paint program and a limited-edition Ness Legacy Cross Country. Victory also announced MSRP reductions and model enhancements elsewhere in the lineup.
The new Cross Country 8-Ball and Cross Roads 8-Ball wrap themselves in black and offer a pure, elemental riding experience. With MSRPs starting at $17,999 and $15,999, respectively, the new 8-Ball baggers offer convenient, easy-access storage, athletic on-road handling and hard-charging power propelled by the high-performance Freedom 106/6 V-Twin powertrain.
Riders seeking high style and more features have several new options this year with the announcement of the Victory Cross Country Factory Custom Paint program. A range of paint schemes produced from the handcrafted themes of Victory’s design team allow more individualized expression with quick ordering and limited production. The Factory Custom Paint designs are expertly applied in the Spirit Lake, Iowa, manufacturing plant and can be special ordered and delivered to a rider’s local dealership in just a couple of short weeks.
Those seeking an expert’s take on how to style a Victory bagger need look no further than the Ness Cross Country featuring Ness Legacy Paint. For 2014 the skills of three generations of Ness come together to co-design this stunning bagger that features a striking red and black paint scheme loaded with detail. A well-chromed engine features diamond-cut cylinder fins for a sparkle that exudes custom and detail in a way only the Nesses can. In addition, each Ness Cross Country comes with an original autographed and framed photo of Arlen, Cory, and Zach Ness featuring a limited-edition plate uniquely numbered to match the machines, for new low price of only $22,999.
“We worked hard to add features and attain price points that make 2014 Victory motorcycles more desirable than ever before,” said, Steve Menneto, Vice President for Polaris Motorcycles. “Riders know that a Victory is a rider’s bike, and now we have loads of options for them, whatever their style. We’re offering that with more value than ever before in making our motorcycles more attainable while increasing features and options. Victory Motorcycles has never had the diversity and approachability that it does for 2014.”
Price reductions and other great refinements define the Victory cruiser lineup. The popular Victory High-Ball now comes in two versions. Both feature a new, round headlight while the Suede Black and White version features cast wheels and the low starting MSRP of $13,499. A new Suede Black with Flames version of the High-Ball features traditional spoke rims, but pops with a custom inspired red flame on suede black paint job that wears its attitude on its cut off-sleeves.
The Victory Judge features a new ergonomic layout and styling cues, but maintains the powerful muscle-car inspired look that defines an adrenalin-producing ride. The Victory Jackpot now features a round headlight, a color-matched frame and striking Sunset Red and Gloss Black paint and comes in at the lowest price it’s ever had, $15,999.
The Victory Boardwalk brings high style to laid-back cruising with a new two-tone paint and pinstripe detail that’s doesn’t cost a penny more than last year’s model.
The crown jewel of the 2014 Victory Touring Line-up, announced in January, is the 15th Anniversary Cross Country Tour Limited Edition that features a limited build but unlimited features and style, while the 2014 Cross Country Tour continues to define class-leading storage capacity, style and performance and now comes with the option of its first two-tone paint scheme in Sonic Blue & Silver. The high-style Victory Vision continues to offer the finest feature-laden ride for all-day-in-the-saddle comfort in three color options including the new Nuclear Sunset.
