2011 Victory Motorcycles
PROVEN OUTSTANDING RELIABILITY
Victory has a track record of consistently
outstanding reliability and dependability, which has
led to the industry’s highest customer satisfaction
ratings. This proven reliability, along with the new
transmission design, allows Victory to recommend extended
oil service intervals for 2011 drivetrains.
- The recommended oil change interval for 2011
models is every 5,000 miles (8,000 km).
- Less-frequent oil changes results in a lower
cost of ownership.
The Victory drivetrain team scrutinized
every component of the engine and transmission and
fine-tuned the designs and performance of numerous
parts. Approximately 40% of the drivetrain is new
for 2011, with the transmission receiving so many
improvements it is virtually a new transmission.
The changes: improved manufacturing
efficiency and quality assurance; enhanced drivetrain’s
already-impressive reliability; improved engine performance;
and, for riders, improved ridability and delivered
a more appealing-sounding transmission.
- In terms of operating sound, selected modulation
frequencies have been eliminated. This produces
a more-appealing sound – consistently in each
gear. In 4th and 6th gears in particular, gear whine
has been reduced.
- Driveline lash has been reduced by 66%.
- “Neutral Assist” has been added to
make it easier for a rider to shift into neutral
when stopped. This
will reduce the rider’s effort, will reduce
clutch wear and will lessen the performance demands
on the oil.
All cruisers now have instrumentation
similar to that of the Victory Cross Roads, which
provides a rider with a wealth of information in one,
easy-to-read location. The new instrumentation includes:
- An analog speedometer, which may be set to show
MPH or KPH.
- Blue backlighting.
- A large LCD that displays: Clock (time of day
is viewable at all times), gear position, tachometer
diagnostic readouts for Victory dealership service
- The gauge face includes lights such as high-beam
and neutral indicators and the oil warning light.
Cruisers no longer have these indicator lights atop
the triple clamps.
- The Cross Roads instrumentation also has an always-viewable
CHASSIS CHANGES ACROSS THE LINEUP
- All brake calipers, rotors, lower belt guards,
and floorboards are black.
- All left- and right-hand switch cubes are black,
as are the audio control switch block and cruise
control switch block.
- The triple clamp is black on all models except
the Vegas Jackpot (which retains its chrome triple),
and the Victory Cross Roads (which retains its brushed
- A new side stand on each model features an integrated
hooked-end design for easy locating and
easy control of the side stand.
- All cruiser exhausts have a larger outlet for
improved sound quality and a lower exhaust note.
