    Default Victory Vision trike

    Victory and Lehman have teamed up to come out with the Crossbow, Victory's trike version of the Vision. Been waiting to see how this would be done. Looks like they put a pair of trunks in the fenders behind the wheels to keep the V style rear lights. The picture angle makes the area between the trunk and the taillight look like there is more space than is really there.

    Can't afford a new ride, especially for $33,995, but I have come to like the Vision, like the trike, too. (At least in the pics - will have to wait to see it in person) I have always said that the Vision looks like what designers in the 1930's thought a motorcycle would look like in the 21st century.

    Here is an article about the Crossbow:

    I like it as a trike better than as a bike. At least on paper.

    Yeah, that is what I thought when I first saw the picture. I do want to see it in person, and see more pictures.

    Another bike that looks better as a trike (I think) is the Harley V-Rod. Motor Trike has a good looking kit for the 'Rod.

    I'm 100% with you on that opinion, Ozark. I don't care for the V-rod appearance, but I saw a triked one this past winter that was absolutely beautiful! It is one I would have been proud to own!

    I test rode a V Vision. If I were in the market for a cruiser or a "touring cruiser" the Vision would be on my short list. Fit and finish is great and the engine is oh so smooth!

    Thats a very impressive machine. The body work fits the style of the bike to a T!

    I own a Vision (bike), it would make an excellent trike! The Crossbow is well integrated with the flowing lines of the Vision. Victory? Check the JD Powers owner satisfaction surveys about this brand...

    My son rides a Vision, I rode it too. Nice bike, very smooth and power was great. Lots of nice features.

    I checked out the Crossbow. I like most of it except the trunks ( glove boxes) in the fenders...don't care for that at all. I know most people pull a trailer and that would make up the small areas in the fenders...but I just don't like them.

    Only knock on Victory is the small dealer network, but that takes time and most Victory bikes are trouble free...

    Good bikes, I would own one.
