2013 Victory Judge Review

2013 Victory Judge

American muscle never died. It just needed handlebars.

All-New Victory Judge Rules the Street
With Muscle Car inspired Styling & American Power

At the intersection of exhilarating American V-Twin power and dynamic muscle bike styling is the all-new Victory Judge.

This is a new cruiser from Victory, the only brand that can combine such powerful new styling with dominating V-Twin power and smooth, confidence-inspiring handling for riders of all sizes.

JUDGE STYLE
The Victory Judge has a powerful silhouette and details that evoke visions of classic American muscle cars. Deeply sculpted bodywork and blacked-out components give the bike a strong purpose. Three paint options including a sinister Gloss Black, Sunset Red, and a signature Suede Nuclear Sunset, with minimal graphics. No frills, no excess, no excuses. Lots of bikes look good when parked, the Judge looks like it’s just resting up for the next challenge.

The fuel tank features signature Victory styling, the new headlight has crisp design lines and the side covers have oval faces just waiting to be customized. The frame, dual exhaust, triple trees, cases, cylinder heads and more are blacked-out. The Judge says “drop the polish and pull the trigger.”

The drag bars inspired by the CORE concept motorcycle and bodywork are all new and unique, as is the styling of the taillight, fender struts and new EFI covers between the cylinders. The Victory Judge features new 5-spoke cast wheels that evoke memories of performance mag wheels seen at race tracks in the 70’s. These 16″ rims are shod with premium Dunlop Elite II tires with raised white lettering, the perfect look on this performance cruiser.

JUDGE PERFORMANCE
The Judge pulses with Victory Engineering DNA, delivering premium power and braking, and a smooth ride and handling.

A Judge rider is in an engaged riding position, on top of the action, and in total command of the bike. The mid-mount lower controls help create an exceptionally comfortable, confidence-inspiring cockpit. The Judge’s intuitive, natural handling produces easy, responsive handling resulting in confident handling all the time. Roll smoothly over back roads then carve twisties hard on the gas as the premium suspension and semi-floating brake rotors blend into seamless performance.

With the rearward control positions and 25.9″ (658 mm) seat height, the Judge is an ideal cruiser for riders with modest inseams. Its incredible balance and low center of gravity invite riders of all heights to get on and go, whether the object is to wind down from the day, or get pumped up for the weekend ride.

Street-owning power flows from within the Freedom® 106/6 V-Twin. Serving up 113 ft-lbs of torque that let a rider punch through the gnarliest traffic, hustle through the curves and decimate any straightaway. Helical-cut gears in the proven 6-speed transmission deliver consistently smooth shifting. The true overdrive of 6th gear delivers smooth highway cruising, and a positive neutral finder simplifies the stoplight to stoplight battles.

The 4.5-gallon (17.0 litre) fuel tank offers great range and is coupled to a high-end fuel injection system that can handle any riding conditions. Pure Victory Gear, available from Victory dealers, features Judge-specific accessories so every rider can make their Judge truly their bike.

THE VERDICT
The all-new Victory Judge presides. It has the American V-Twin power and dynamic muscle bike styling that only Victory can deliver. The Judge opens a new chapter of outstanding Victory cruiser performance. It serves up incredible handling and street-dominating power for a phenomenal riding experience.

Locally the Judge is expected to arrive for retail in Australia around May this year. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.

Available in dealerships April 2012
