FWIW the rep from Polaris-Victory at the Intl Moto sshow said the designer of the bike came from BMW.
Many styling cues from the LT to mention. Bike did not fit me properly. Seat to low, arms reached to far. But compared to the wings controls where you have buttons by your knees and you have to take your eyes off the road way to much to make adjustments it is much better design on that level. The passenger sits way high of the windsheild.
The front view looks like a GW-LT mingling of the species. The side views seem to be cross between LT and v-twin retro/deco style cruiser
I personally like the way it looks. NOT like another one of the other 2 billion HD's or other clone V-twin cruisers. Kind of like another brand out there that is different from the rest of the pack.
Another point Victory is way less than 20 years old and is doing this. HD is 100 years old and still doing the same old thing. At least they (Victory) are doing something different!
This bike is going to be like the Dodge ram truck, when they went to the Kenilworth look in the early 90's you will like or hate it. I like the styling looks.
Would I buy one... Well not unless it fits me right and proves to perform close to the LT. my guess it will be a gas pig and be quite heavy and handle accordingly. I do not think Victory's known for excellent fuel mileage.
