Looking to the future with a nod to the past, the Victory Vision 800 concept motorcycle is a radical departure from previous designs from the Minnesota factory, combining the seating position of a cruiser, the storage capacity of a touring bike, the ease of operation of a scooter, and the styling of a dustbin-fairing-equipped roadracer of the 1950s.
With no foot controls, the Vision is a “point-and-shoot” motorcycle.
Borrowing technology from the parent Polaris snowmobile and all-terrain vehicle divisions, the Victory Vision is equipped with a fully automatic torque converter-style transmission, making the Vision a “point-and-shoot” motorcycle bereft of foot controls. The Vision’s low seat height and wide rear tire give the machine a custom cruiser tail end, with the large forward storage compartment cum retro performance fairing offering a more sporting influence. Powered by a virtually horizontal 800cc parallel twin rather than Victory’s traditional V-twin configuration, the Vision transmits its muscle via an exposed shaft drive running through a single-sided aluminum swingarm.
