PASADENA, Calif. — Under the backdrop of the prestigious Art Center School of Design campus, Victory Motorcycles unveiled its 2009 lineup, which includes several upgrades on the company’s signature bikes, including a new engine, a new model and 100 limited edition 10th Anniversary Victory Visions to be sold via an online bidding process.
“The introduction of these bikes is really about the start of a year-long celebration of our 10th anniversary, but it’s also about imagining how far we’ll go in the next 10 years,” said Mark Blackwell, vice president of Victory.
Among the highlights of Victory’s 2009 lineup unveiling was the introduction of its new 106ci Freedom V-Twin engine, which feature Stage 2 Cams that produce 97 hp and 113 foot-pounds of torque. The new engine will power Victory’s muscle cruisers, the Hammer and Hammer S, as well as the Vegas Jackpot.
Victory also introduced the newest addition to the company’s lineup, the 2009 Kingpin Low. A lower 25.2-inch seat height and “scalloped” side covers make the bike 11/2 inches narrower and gives the bike its “low” look and feel.
