2008 Victory Vision Tour First Impressions


by Pascal Bastien ,

Victory, a subsidiary of Polaris, took nearly seven years to develop it, but now, the Vision Tour is finally ready to take on other luxurious long-distance motorcycles. This first grand touring Victory will certainly delight fans of endless rides.

The sleek, flowing design is reminiscent of the beautiful American four-wheelers of yesteryear.

At first sight, the Vision Tour looks so massive and futuristic that it feels almost surreal. This bike turns a lot of heads with bold, outrageous lines and a unique visual character. The sleek, flowing design of the fuel tank and front fairing as well as the integrated trunk, rear bumper and passenger backrest are reminiscent of the beautiful American four-wheelers of yesteryear.

Generously equipped
With regard to features, this motorcycle could probably put to shame a premium sedan. Cruise control, a power windshield, a CD player with MP3 playback, a GPS-based navigation system, satellite radio, heated seats and handlebars as well as seemingly infinite storage make the 2008 Victory Vision Tour the perfect travel companion.

This machine might appear intimidating at idle, especially with the huge fairing and plethora of controls, yet it handles like a cruiser, feeling much lighter than it actually is. As soon as you take off, you notice the massive instrument panel with a pair of analog gauges flanking a small car-like digital display. The rider has easy access to all the important data and more.

Plenty of room
The Vision Tour was designed with comfort as a top priority. As a result, little to no vibrations are felt through the handlebars and floorboards. There's a ridiculous amount of room on board and, despite the galactic styling, ergonomics for both occupants are exemplary. With such a focus on passenger room and ergonomics, the Vision Tour manages to stand up to far more seasoned competitors.
