Power for the Vision is provided by the redesigned, second-generation Freedom V-twin. A 6mm increase in stroke bumps displacement to 106 cubic inches (1731cc) for more power and a broader torque spread. A more sophisticated Visteon engine-management system further improves performance, drivability and emissions. The new 60-pin ECM incorporates sequential injection with independent fuel and spark calibration for each cylinder, as well as a MAP sensor to precisely calculate the air charge; the new motor burns so clean, an exhaust catalyzer isn't needed. The latest EFI system features dual-channel, closed-loop operation, and larger 45mm throttle bodies are fitted with a new eccentric cable drum for smoother throttle pick-up. Luxury-touring buyers demand greater refinement than cruiser types, so Victory went to great lengths to improve the NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) values. State-of-the-art skirtless pistons and new rods with stepped small ends reduce reciprocating mass, so the motor vibrates less despite the increased stroke. Revised cams with altered closing ramps reduce valve-train noise, while split gears on the clutch and balance shafts, with ramp-type compensators to dampen idle noise, all help maintain the elemental sound and feel of the American V-twin with significantly less mechanical noise and vibration.
