10 Seconds All Day



10.741 seconds at 141.22 mph
10.667 seconds at 142.04 mph
10.613 seconds at 142.25 mph
10.696 seconds at 141.82 mph

Consistency is King.

Victory brought their 2015 Isle of Man TT race bike to the 2015 American Victory Rally in Colorado. The TT bike was a strange breed amongst the big baggers and factory bobbers.

There was little Victory about the 2015 race bike besides the stickers, with Polaris simply absorbing the IoM program when they purchased Brammo back in January, but that didn't stop Victory from trotting out the TT bike and Lee Johnston for several 1/4 mile sprints.


Without a clutch to feel and a gearbox to kick, Johnston was setting passes within 0.128 seconds of one another with a speed variance of 1.03 mph. To put that in perspective, Victory's supercharged bagger stunt bikes with 160 hp on tap we're passing in the mid 12's. Granted they were starving for oxygen at 5,800 ft above sea level.

Victory will no longer chase Harley-lite dreams and will instead begin focusing on out and out performance. A 10 second bike sounds like my idea of a good start...

That is just crazy! Just imagine what they can do with more fine tuning and even adding more to its performance... maybe break into the high 9's
