Bag a big-wheel beauty

Rid­ers can be part of the Vic­tory cel­e­bra­tions as its bold­est and most cus­tomised bike ever rolls off the fac­tory line

Geelong Advertiser - Motoring - - CARSGUIDE -

VIC­TORY Mo­tor­cy­cles has an­nounced the ar­rival of the new Vic­tory Mag­num, a ma­chine that could raise the bar on fac­tory cus­tom “bag­gers’’ to a higher level.

Start­ing with Vic­tory’s Cross Coun­try model, the Mag­num adds a strik­ing 21-inch front cast wheel, slammed back-end, three-tone paint scheme, and its best per­form­ing sound sys­tem ever — star­ring six speak­ers in-dash and 100 watts out­put.

This big wheel bag­ger also has the per­for­mance and han­dling to back it up, with Vic­tory’s pow­er­ful Free­dom 1731cc V-Twin housed in a so­phis­ti­cated two-piece hol­low alu­minium frame.

Ac­cord­ing to Peter Har­vey of Vic­tory Mo­tor­cy­cles in Aus­tralia, the bag­ger trend is gath­er­ing real mo­men­tum lo­cally.

“Cus­tomers have been ask­ing for a cus­tom build of this type,” he said. “For it to be avail­able ex-fac­tory with the largest pro­duc­tion bag­ger wheel on the road com­ing stan­dard, plus all the other fea­tures should make it ir­re­sistible.”

Fea­tures unique to the Vic­tory Mag­num in­clude 21inch front wheel, one-inch low­ered rear sus­pen­sion, “boomerang” tinted wind­shield, colour matched painted dash, ra­di­a­tor shroud and rear fen­der close-outs, colour matched hinges, low-pro seat, LED head­light and sixs­peaker, 100W au­dio sys­tem.

The new Mag­num is avail­able from $29,995 ride away. Ex­pected ar­rival date in Aus­tralia is late Novem­ber.
