For 2017, Victory Motorcycles continues its push forward as the American performance motorcycle brand, but will do so with a leaner, meaner line-up in Europe.
With new Euro IV emission regulations impacting every global motorcycle manufacturer in Europe, Victory will offer a more concise range in the Europe for the 2017 model year, headlined by the new 1200cc liquid-cooled V-Twin Octane, that was launched earlier this year.
It means the line-up in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in 2017 will be spearheaded by Victory’s ‘Modern American Muscle’ cruisers, namely the Judge, the Gunner, the High-Ball and of course the Octane. When it comes to an overall balance of power, handling and style, nothing compares to a Victory cruiser – and the successes at the Isle of Man TT and Pikes Peak in 2016 are helping the firm with its future product development.
The existing stock of MY16 Cross Country, Cross Country Tour, Vision and Magnum models will still be sold in the EMEA region during the coming months.
Rodney Krois, Victory Motorcycles General Manager said:
“We look to a bright future at Victory, learning from our past successes, while not forgetting the models that have made us the brand we are today. Octane was the start of a new direction for Victory Motorcycles and we can now get ready for the next chapter. Sure, we’re sad to see some models leave the EMEA region, but what follows will be even more exciting.”
