After 18 years of building cruisers in the USA, Victory Motorcycles is pulling into the garage and putting down its kickstand for the final time.
The 2017 Victory Octane set a new, though irrelevant, Guinness World Record for the longest motorcycle burnout during a stunt at Orlando Speed World in Florida.
Victory Motorcycles' new Combustion concept, designed by Zach Ness around its new liquid-cooled 1,200cc V-Twin, is a followup to the Project 156 racer and Ignition cafe racer.
Victory teams up with drag racing champion Urs Erbacher to craft this custom Ignition concept bike for the EICMA show in Italy this year, built around the forthcoming new Project 156 engine.
The Isle of Man is abuzz with the chatter of visitors and the blatting of motorcycles at the annual TT (Tourist Trophy) race. Crowds have gathered from around the world to watch races being run and records being beaten. They have not been disappointed.
Victory Motorcycles, Roland Sands Design and Cycle World are teaming up to enter the Project 156 custom prototype racing bike you see here at this year's Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
Victory Motorcycles, known for making heavy-weight cruisers, shows its forward-looking face with the announcement of its entry of two electric race bikes in the SES TT Zero Challenge on the Isle of Man.
Consumer Reports' 2015 motorcycle study still finds Japanese brands to be the most dependable, but riders have the most love for American models from Victory and Harley-Davidson.
UK-based motorcycle racer Lee Johnston has posted a photo on Twitter that points to his participation in the 2015 TT Zero aboard an electric motorcycle developed by Brammo. We can only wonder which brand the bike will wear if it makes it to the historic Mountain Course – Brammo or Victory?
While Brammo's production arrangement with Flextronics was a pretty significant deal, their latest strategic partnership may prove even more momentous. Powersports powerhouse Polaris Industries has helped close out its $28 million series B funding round in style and committed to synergistically dipping their vast peanut butter resources into the electric motorcycle maker's technology chocolate. So to speak.
It's spring, and that means motorcycles are back in season. Polaris must be in a buying mood, as the recreational vehicle giant announced that it has purchased Indian Motorcycles. Terms of the sale have not been disclosed, but the move has certainly given Polaris a stronger foothold in the American-made motorcycle market. Polaris also owns Victory, which makes cruiser and tourer bikes that compete directly with models from Harley Davidson.

Jeremy Mayfield, a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver with five career victories, has become the first driver suspended for substance abuse since the sanctioning body's no-nonsense policy took effect this season. Jim Hunter, NASCAR's vice president of corporate communications, would not say what the specific substance was, but he did clarify that it was not alcohol-related. As of last September, NASCAR tests all drivers and crew members at the start of the season, and randomly throughout the year.
