Harley-Davidson Street Glide vs. Victory Cross Country - Town & Country

By Aaron Frank, Photography by Jim Moy

2010 Harley-Davidson Street Glide | Price: $18,999

Though it makes significantly less peak torque, the two-valve Twin Cam 96's low-end output lords over Victory's four-valve Freedom106 at lower revs. The Street Glide holds a 5 lb.-ft. advantage at 2000 rpm, which makes it quicker from a standstill.

When the rest of the cruiser industry rushed to supersize everything, Harley-Davidson held the line, thus modern Hogs feel almost compact. An easy reach to the bars and floorboards makes the Street Glide a good fit even for smaller riders.
