The 2013 Victory Boardwalk is this year’s newest model, and ready to hit the pavement at your next whim. Fat, whitewall tires beg for the asphalt of curving, hilly roads.

You will definitely make your way there, with the Boardwalk’s new 4.7-gallon fuel tank. The structUrally sound, ultra-maneuverable Victory Boardwalk is home to a 1731cc four-stroke engine ready to take you wherever your wandering heart desires.
