Victory Motorcycles announces the first 2013 year model

All-New Victory Judge Rules the Street With Muscle Car inspired Styling & American Power

[AMERICAN MUSCLE NEVER DIED. IT JUST NEEDED HANDLEBARS.

At the intersection of exhilarating American V-Twin power and dynamic muscle bike styling is the all-new Victory Judge. This is a new cruiser from Victory, the only brand that can combine such powerful new styling with dominating V-Twin power and smooth, confidence-inspiring handling for riders of all sizes.

Style

The Victory Judge has a powerful silhouette and details that evoke visions of classic American muscle cars. Deeply sculpted bodywork and blacked-out components give the bike a strong purpose. Three paint options including a sinister Gloss Black, Sunset Red, and a signature Suede Nuclear Sunset, host the minimal graphics. No frills, no excess, no excuses. Lots of bikes look good when parked, the Judge looks like it's just resting up for the next challenge.

[The fuel tank features signature Victory styling, the new headlight has crisp design lines and the side covers have oval faces just waiting to be customized. The frame, dual exhaust, triple trees, cases, cylinder heads and more are blacked-out. The Judge says "just drop the polish and pull the trigger."

The drag bars and bodywork are all new, as is the styling of the taillight, fender struts and new EFI covers between the cylinders. The Victory Judge features new 5-spoke cast wheels that evoke memories of performance mag wheels seen at race tracks in the 70's. These 16" rims are shod with premium Dunlop Elite II tires with raised white lettering, the perfect look on this performance cruiser.

[Performance

The Judge pulses with Victory Engineering DNA, delivering premium power and braking, and a smooth ride and handling.

A Judge rider is in an engaged riding position, on top of the action, and in total command of the bike. The mid-mount lower controls create comfortable, confidence-inspiring ergonomics. A rider's intuitive, natural leaning produces easy, responsive handling. Roll smoothly through tight turns and carve twisties on the gas as the premium suspension and emifloating brake rotors blend into seamless performance. With the rearward control positions and 25.9" (658 mm) seat height, the Judge is an ideal cruiser for riders with modest inseams. Its incredible balance and low center of gravity invite riders of all heights to get on and go.

[Street-owning power flows from within the Freedom(r) 106/6 V-Twin. It serves up 113 ft-lbs of torque that let a rider punch through the gnarliest traffic, hustle through the curves and decimate any straightaway. Helicalcut gears in the proven 6-speed transmission deliver consistently smooth shifting. The true overdrive of 6th gear delivers smooth highway cruising, and a positive neutral finder simplifies the stoplight to stoplight battles. The 4.5-gallon (17.0 liter) fuel tank offers great range and is coupled to a high-end fuel injection system that can handle any riding conditions. Pure Victory Gear, available from Victory dealers and 24/7 at , features Judge-specific accessories so every rider can make their Judge truly their bike.

[The Verdict

The all-new Victory Judge presides where American V-Twin power intersects with dynamic muscle bike styling that only Victory can deliver. The Judge opens a new chapter of outstanding Victory cruiser performance. It serves up incredible handling and street-dominating power for a phenomenal riding experience.
