MEDINA, Minn. – Victory Motorcycles will rolling out a limited-edition 15th anniversary motorcycle during the Progressive International Motorcycle Show stop at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City.
The special model commemorates Victory’s 15th anniversary and will be built on the same assembly line in Spirit Lake, Iowa that produced the company’s very first motorcycle, the V92C classic cruiser. That bike was built on the Fourth of July in 1998.
The new model will be unveiled at 6 p.m. EST on Friday, Jan. 18.
Victory’s other plans for the New York IMS include a display of the complete 2013 motorcycle lineup and a large collection of new Victory apparel. Other highlights:
- Victory Bagger Bar: Riders can take a seat at the Victory Bagger Bar to learn more about Victory baggers and accessories from Victory engineers and accessories developers. Tablets at the Victory Bagger Bar will provide interactive access to the accessories catalog and allow riders to virtually “build” accessorized Victory models.
- National Motorcycle Museum Ness Victory Custom: Legendary custom bike builders – and Victory dealers – Arlen Ness and Cory Ness will introduce the Ness Custom Cross Country that will be raffled off to raise funds for the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa. Victory donated the bike and the Nesses customized it into a one-of-a-kind custom that includes museum graphics. The bike will be unveiled Friday, Jan. 18, after the Victory 15th anniversary model is introduced.
- ‘Gunny’ & The Bunnies: Actor, Victory rider and retired U.S. Marine R. Lee Ermey – better known as “The Gunny” – will be at the Victory display for autograph and photo sessions with riders, as will Playboy Playmates who appeared in the 2013 Victory Motorcycles brochure.
