Victory Motorcycles to Unveil 15th Anniversary Special at International Motorcycle Show in New York City

By | General Posts

Victory Motorcycles has several special attractions on tap for the International Motorcycle Show in New York City, Jan. 18-20, including the introduction of a limited-edition 15th Anniversary model.

It was 15 years ago that the first Victory motorcycles hit the open road. Victory No. 1 – a V92C classic cruiser – was built on the Fourth of July 1998 at the Polaris/Victory production facility in Spirit Lake, Iowa. The limited edition 15th Anniversary Victory models will be produced on the same assembly line after the bike is unveiled in New York.

“We are excited to celebrate 15 years with our passionate riders,” said Steve Menneto, Polaris VP Motorcycles. “Victory riders are men and women who demand the best Cruisers, Baggers, and Touring bikes on the road and we are excited to celebrate this exciting time with them while also continuing to develop new models to ensure more great riding ahead.”

Victory’s New York IMS Plans

The Victory display at the New York IMS will include the complete 2013 Victory motorcycle lineup – Cruisers, Baggers and Touring models – as well as a large collection of new Victory apparel. Other highlights of the display and the New York show weekend will include:

• 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 (www.nationalmcmuseum.org) 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.

The Bunnies are scheduled to be at the Victory display: Friday, Jan. 18, 1-3 p.m., 4-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m.; and Saturday, Jan. 19, 10-11 a.m., noon-2 p.m., 5-6 p.m., and 7-9 p.m.

Electric Motorcycle and Scooter Sales to Reach 18.7 Million Annually by 2018?

By | General Posts

Manufacturers of electric motorcycles and scooters (e-motorcycles and e-scooters) are providing more robust features, including longer range capability and higher speeds, accelerating demand for these vehicles. Although still small, the market is expected to grow strongly as consumers become more aware of the products available. According to a new report from Pike Research, a part of Navigant's Energy Practice, annual worldwide sales of e-motorcycles and e-scooters will reach 18.7 million by 2018. The vast majority of these vehicles will be sold in China.
"Two-wheel vehicles are growing in popularity as a form of transportation, particularly in large cities in the Asia Pacific region," says senior research analyst Dave Hurst. "Urbanization in Asia Pacific is expected to grow to 55 percent by 2015. The resulting increased traffic and pollution have driven significant government interest in promoting e-motorcycles and e-scooters."

Heaven's Saints Motorcycle Ministry gets a kick start

By | General Posts

Curtis Jamieson looks likes the perfect biker cliché: His hair is pulled back into a long ponytail that runs past his shoulders, he's wearing a slightly intimidating leather vest adorned with multiple patches over his heavily tattooed body as he stands next to a dozen or more motorcycles.

But Jamieson is much more than just a biker, because Christian symbols leap out from the patches on his vest and the motorcycles he's standing next to are in the parking lot of the South Walton First Baptist Church, which chartered a local chapter of the Heaven's Saints Motorcycle Ministry on Sunday.

"We (bikers) aren't as wild and crazy as the world thinks we are," said Jamieson, a Phenix City, Ala., resident and the international president of the ministry. "It's easy for people to judge us on our appearance."

Founded in 1979, the Heaven's Saints Motorcycle Ministry was formed to spread the world of the Lord, without excluding anyone because of physical appearance.
