Victory motorcycles who are known for their exquisite cruisers, and who have carved out their own identity in the market dominated by heavy weights like Harley Davidson, Triumph, Honda and Suzuki have officially unveiled their 2013 Victory Boardwalk cruiser.
And boy oh boy, it is surely a head turner, we say. The DNA of this motorcycle is largely based on the classic-looking cruiser’s of the mid 60s.
Powered by an air-cooled, four valve per cylinder, fuel-injected 1731cc monstrous V-twin engine, the Broadway is not for the faint of heart. A six-speed gearbox which drives the rear wheel via a carbon-reinforced belt is all but waiting for its rider to unleash it’s throttle. The engine has a maximum torque of 149 Nm. But for us the icing on the cake surely are the white wall tires, wrapped around 16-inch wheels, which make this Victory motorcycle a worthy contender to be displayed at its famous namesake theaters. This steady mill will burn a hole in your pocket by $ 15,499 (Rs 8 lakhs approx).
A fair price to pay for that unparalleled sensation of hitting the open road and rumbling into the sunset on a virtual sofa-on-wheels, we say.
