2012 Victory Cross Country Tour Review

The new long distance machine others will be chasing for years.

The new long distance machine others will be chasing for years with the world's largest storage capacity with over 41 gallons.

 

VICTORY CROSS SERIES

Choose the Cross bikes for traditional styling with the modern technology only Victory brings to riding enthusiasts. It starts with the 106 cu. in Freedom V-Twin with power and torque for exhilarating speed at the twist of the wrist. With a 6-speed overdrive transmission these bikes have the long legs for all-day cruising.

Our all-aluminum backbone frame provides light low-speed handling and impressive stability in corners and at speed. Combined with a range of windshields and storage choices and you have a bagger for everyone who wants to travel in style and comfort.


NEW TRUNK FOR VICTORY CROSS COUNTRY/CROSS ROADS

Touring riders can put away their tools. The new Lock & Ride® Trunk from Pure Victory can be installed on a Cross Country or Cross Roads in seconds, and removed just as quickly - without tools.

To install a trunk, a rider simply aligns the trunk mounting legs with mounting points at the rear of the bike and snaps down the locking arm. The trunk's power cord connects easily to the bike's electrical system to power the taillight at the rear of the trunk lid, the audio speakers and the accessory power outlet inside the trunk. To remove the trunk, simply reverse the process. When the trunk is on the bike, a locking pin can be added for theft prevention and additional peace of mind.
oThe trunk has more than enough room for two full-face helmets.

oThe trunk lid seals securely, is lockable and provides the bike with a high-mounted taillight.

o The front face of the trunk has a comfortable, padded passenger backrest and dual audio speakers.

o Each 2011 Cross Country and Cross Roads comes with a spare lock cylinder so a trunk can be locked with the bike's ignition key.

oTrunk-related accessories available from Pure Victory include: Passenger Armrests, Trunk Luggage
Rack (mounts atop lid), and Trunk Liner


PROVEN OUTSTANDING RELIABILITY

Victory has a track record of consistently outstanding reliability and dependability, which has led to the industry's highest customer satisfaction ratings. This proven reliability, along with the new transmission design, allows Victory to recommend extended oil service intervals for 2011 drivetrains.

oThe recommended oil change interval for 2011 models is every 5,000 miles (8,000 km).

oLess-frequent oil changes results in a lower cost of ownership.


NEW TRANSMISSION

The Victory drivetrain team scrutinized every component of the engine and transmission and fine-tuned the designs and performance of numerous parts. Approximately 40% of the drivetrain is new for 2011, with the transmission receiving so many improvements it is virtually a new transmission.

The changes: improved manufacturing efficiency and quality assurance; enhanced drivetrain's already-impressive reliability; improved engine performance; and, for riders, improved ridability and delivered a more appealing-sounding transmission.

oIn terms of operating sound, selected modulation frequencies have been eliminated. This produces a more-appealing sound - consistently in each gear. In 4th and 6th gears in particular, gear whine has been reduced.

oDriveline lash has been reduced by 66%.

o"Neutral Assist" has been added to make it easier for a rider to shift into neutral when stopped. This will reduce the rider's effort, will reduce clutch wear and will lessen the performance demands on the oil.


ENHANCED INSTRUMENTATION

All cruisers now have instrumentation similar to that of the Victory Cross Roads, which provides a rider with a wealth of information in one, easy-to-read location. The new instrumentation includes:

o An analog speedometer, which may be set to show MPH or KPH.

oBlue backlighting.

oA large LCD that displays: Clock (time of day is viewable at all times), gear position, tachometer and diagnostic readouts for Victory dealership service technicians.

o The gauge face includes lights such as high-beam and neutral indicators and the oil warning light. Cruisers no longer have these indicator lights atop the triple clamps.

oThe Cross Roads instrumentation also has an always-viewable fuel gauge.


CHASSIS CHANGES ACROSS THE LINEUP

All brake calipers, rotors, lower belt guards, and floorboards are black.

oAll left- and right-hand switch cubes are black, as are the audio control switch block and cruise control switch block.

o The triple clamp is black on all models except the Vegas Jackpot (which retains its chrome triple), and the Victory Cross Roads (which retains its brushed finish).

o A new side stand on each model features an integrated hooked-end design for easy locating and easy control of the side stand.

o All cruiser exhausts have a larger outlet for improved sound quality and a lower exhaust note.

2012 Victory Cross Country Tour Features and Benefits

106 CUBIC-INCH FREEDOM V-TWIN
At the heart of the Cross Country Tour sits the Freedom V-Twin power plant, expertly balanced for the perfectly controlled explosions that deliver 97 horsepower and 113 ft lbs of hole shot torque. Maestro of the motorcycle world, it's what keeps man, machine and highway working together in perfect harmony.

6-SPEED OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION
The highest performing transmission on the road receives the power generated by the massive V-twin and seamlessly turns it into something you can use. Neutral Selection Assist and helical-cut gears ensure every shift is as quiet and smooth as the one before it.

ABS BRAKES
Standard on the Cross Country Tour, the Victory Anti-Lock Brake System doesn't discriminate between dry, wet or rock-strewn pavement. No matter what the conditions, ABS monitors what the wheel is doing and gives you consistent, smooth braking from the handlebar lever down to the rubber on the road.

VICTORY COMFORT CONTROL SYSTEM
Since Mother Nature seldom listens to the weather requests of motorcycle enthusiasts, we've taken means to accommodate her. Down below the knees, we've given the Cross Country Tour dual fairing vents (as well as a storage box). Close 'em for complete protection in cold or rain, open 'em wide when the weather's more agreeable.

CRUISE CONTROL
After making every other aspect of going the distance as effortless as possible, the throttle hand still had a beef about being overworked. By adding precise, automotive-style cruise control, the right mitt can now simply hang on and enjoy the ride.

4.7 INCHES OF REAR SUSPENSION TRAVEL
Just in case the open road gets too lonely the class-leading rear suspension features an easily adjusted air shock and coil spring, ensuring a smooth ride for you and any adventure seeking passenger.

TOTAL STORAGE
Add up lower faring space, trunk and saddlebags and you get an amazing, best-in-class 41.1 gallons of storage space.

SADDLEBAG AND RAILS
With lockable latches and 21.3-gallon capacity, the Cross Country Tour can protect from theft and accomodate a passenger that doesn't follow the "travel lightly" rule. Exquisitely designed chrome rails provide style as well as tip-over insurance that you'll be grateful for when your brother-in-law asks to ride.

HEATED SEATS AND GRIPS
The Cross Country Tour lacks for nothing in the comfort category, and as proof we offer up heated seats and handgrips as exhibit A. Together they offer the best means of enhancing your road warrior reputation by adding precious road time to both sides of summer.

TALL WINDSHIELD
To maximize comfort, we've raised the windshield, resulting in reduced buffeting and increased wind and rain protection.

26.25" SEAT HEIGHT
Rule of the road: the lower the seat height, the more control. The Cross Country Tour has the lowest seat in its class. Unless you admit having the toe strength of a ballerina, you want to be able to plant both feet firmly on the ground.

HID LIGHTING
A machine that looks this good deserves to be seen. The High Intensity Discharge headlamp shines four times brighter than standard halogen headlamps and shouts 'HERE I COME' four times louder. Since it also lasts 10 times longer, you can see your way ocean to ocean with every mile marker perfectly illuminated.

ADJUSTABLE PASSENGER FLOORBOARDS
When the passenger floorboards are easily adjustable, any height passenger can find comfort. That's the long and short of it.

12V SOCKET
Power from the engine can now be sipped to charge phones, cameras, or anything that uses a 12v socket. Sometime during your long distance cruise you may need to call in support for that rider stranded with a lesser motorcycle.
