Victory breaks the sound barrier

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

Victory already made its lineup bigger and badder with its new Magnum bagger. Now, with the recent release of the new Magnum X-1, it’s gotten louder.

Unveiled at Daytona Bike Week, the X-1, says Victory, “is designed for serious music fans.” It’s powered by the brand’s familiar 1,731 cc Freedom V-twin and integrates a whopping 10-speaker, 200-watt stereo system into the bike’s design. Victory says the stereo is four times louder than that on its Cross Country model and twice as loud as the standard Magnum. “This is our loudest bike ever,” says Victory. “It harmonizes your riding style with your music style.” (Finally, a system that will do our Miley Cyrus collection justice.) 

Exact availability is not yet known, though Canadian MSRP starts at $27,999. Earplugs sold separately. For more details, click here
