Victory is an alternative to the Harley for sure. The parent company, Polaris, has been around building good quality off road products for years. My, and others, only problem is the styling. Don't get me wrong, I've been a fan Arlen Ness since his early days but, the man needs to sharpen his pencil in my opinion. The swoopy lines and the fine finish of the bike almost looks fake or plastic in some ways. For me it lacks character in it's appearance. But then again, I'm Old School.
