To this list add the new Cross Roads and Cross Country baggers that utilize traditional American touring silhouettes but with crisp, modern styling and definitely non-traditional construction. In the same spirit as the innovative Vision full-rig tourers and the more recent CORE concept bike, the Cross baggers have hollow, sand-cast aluminum frames that do more than just hold the bikes together. How so? Just like on the Vision, the frame is the airbox, with the inlet on the top of the backbone and under the conventional, 5.8-gallon fuel tank. Not just fuel capacity is large, either, as the locking saddlebags hold about 10 gallons of cargo each, which Victory points out is greater than select competing bikes from Yamaha and Harley-Davidson. Claimed dry weights (745 pounds for the copbike-screened Cross Roads and 765 pounds for the fairing-equipped Cross Country) are about on par with those of the competition, although Victory's Vision-sourced, air/oil-cooled four-valve-per-cylinder, 106-cubic-inch (1737cc) 50-degree V-Twin offers a stated 92 horsepower and 109 foot-pounds of torque, which should give these bikes lively acceleration. The six-speed gearbox features an overdrive top gear. Closed-loop EFI—with dual 45mm throttle bodies—uses oxygen sensors in the hydroformed twin exhaust system to continuously tune the air-fuel mixture.
