The Victory Vision 800 concept was shown at the 2005 Long
Beach (California) International Motorcycle Show.
The Victory Vision 800 is a true concept bike, designed
to show just how radical Victory can think. Victory, a
division of Polaris ATV's has no intention of producing
the Vision 800, but the design is important nonetheless.
The Vision 800 is powered by an 800 cc flat parallel twin,
running through a continuously variable transmission,
(CVT) connected to an exposed shaft drive incorporated
into the single-sided swing arm.
Victory's traditional cruiser style riding position appears
on the Vision 800 with the use of long running boards
and the lack of any foot controls. Presumably the lack
of a clutch, or gears, allows the rear brake to be relocated
to the handlebars.
The extreme, front end bias, bulky nose houses storage
for two helmets, or anything else, while providing wind
protection for the rider. This is in sharp contrast to
the short and stubby tail section.
