2015 Victory Magnum on Totalmotorcycle.com

Over the top custom style that comes to you straight from the Victory factory...

Envy comes standard. Life goes fast – make a lasting impr ession on the new Victory Magnum, our boldest bike to ever roll off the line. This big wheel bagger has the performance to turn heads, along with the style and sound to make people stop, stare, and listen. It ’s got a 21-inch wheel, slammed back-end, custom paint, and our best performing sound system ever — EVER ! Even sitting still, the Victory Magnum is never idle. Wherever it goes, it can’t be ignored.

Building on the international success of the sector-leading Cross Country, Victory Motorcycles have indulged themselves with a mainstream production model like no manufacturer before, creating a factory-custom bagger for a new generation of riders.


The new Magnum redefines the bagger class with its winning combination of fast handling chassis geometry, the lowest seat height in its class, uncompromised cornering clearance, and continent-crossing comfort as standard.


Its tall but muscular 21-inch front wheel, buried deep within a stylised front fender, reinforces the Magnum's slammed stance and the new LED headlight system, shrouded in the already-iconic Cobra-Hood fairing is just about the only thing that is capable of eclipsing the high status detailing of the new King of the Street.


Powered by Victory Motorcycles thundering 106ci (1731cc) Freedom® Motor, the new Magnum offers riders mountains of torque and easily accessible power across the rev range, delivered through a slick six speed overdrive transmission.


Finished in one of four radical eye-popping graphic schemes with 100W of music blasting out from the most powerful in-dash audio system that Victory Motorcycles has ever fitted to a motorcycle, the Magnum is guaranteed to make an entrance!

Ok, first off, I'm not into cruisers, so there's an inherent bias. But this one looks particularly cringe-inducing. Just a crass, gaudy, bloated, excessive, chromed-out, overweight boat of a bike that's also waaaaay too expensive.

Cringe-inducing indeed. Except people who buy a bike because of the stereo are probably incapable of cringing. Which leaves the rest of us to cringe for them....

Definitely a one-up model, which makes it a fail in my book.

Not to mention that colour... what's that even called?

This bike could absolutely accommodate 2Up riding, in fact the pillion is fairly large. Pics are on the full model guide page.

The front fender is awesome, and I'm a huge fan of the hardbags but I don't like how they leave the rear wheel so concealed. It looks like a pull-back car with only half the wheel showing. Also not a fan of that ridiculous AARP fairing, and anyone who cares about having music on their motorcycle needs to reevaluate their motives. Especially someone buying a cruiser. Lastly, 96ci is just too much displacement to take seriously, and the vacuum cleaner belt belongs on a Whooville city bus.

All that on top of a $22,000 price tag and I just have to hand down an UnCool, which believe me, hurts. All that negativity aside, just sitting there on the rubber the Magnum is a beautiful machine, pure rolling art in my book.

I have found bikes look much better in the showroom when you see them in the "flesh". Magazines don't do them justice. I am a fan of green but that green not so sure it would look good in the showroom either.

LOL Ceemes, love the fix!

Well, it was hard to to vote Fail, but I'll go Uncool. The reason being I like the radical paint scheme direction Victory is going with this, yes, the colors are not for everyone, but I'm glad to see something other than "black, matt black, shadow black, gloss black" Victory has been offering now for a few years.

The Magnum in my opinion is quite a unique (but not for me at all) bike. I can see the potential of what Victory is hoping to achieve here by offering a bike that goes beyond a Harley-Davidson custom and into the custom "car" arena. A 21" tire, that's massive and you can get many different rims and (If I remember right even a 23" front!). That's madness, but I've seen a lot of custom bikes here in Houston that look like this and they are mad.

Not sure about a manufacturer sacrificing rideability for style, and I know it's nothing new, but the 2015 Victory Magnum takes that to new lows.

A great show bike, but wouldn't want to own it myself or go over and see it other than that "OMG look at that accident face"...lol.

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=50414
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... Magnum.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2015 Victory Magnum is:


Awesome (3 points) 11% [ 4 ]
Cool (2 points) 32% [ 12 ]
Uncool (1 point) 26% [ 10 ]
Fail (0 point) 32% [ 12 ]

Total votes: 38

= a Coolwall Factor of 40.4%

NOTES: "Who hit the Victory Magnum with the ugly stick" or so goes the majority of opinions for the 2015 Victory Magnum. Some like it, in fact, it's quite original and unique in many ways. But the overall presentation by Victory seems to go too far for many riders to swallow. At 40.4% it drops the Victory Magnum to our 3rd lowest position for the year. Hopefully it's better in the show rooms?

Next 2014 TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting on, have fun!
