New 2013 Victory. You be the Judge.

January 26 2012

The early release game has intensified. Barely a few weeks into 2012, Victory has already announced a new 2013 model that has been authoritatively named the Judge.

Picture of the 2013 Victory Judge Rear wheel of the Victory Judge Described as a classic American muscle car with a drag bar, the Judge’s appearance is dominated by its distinctive bodywork and blacked-out components.

Most of what you see is completely new. The handlebar, bodywork, tail light, and fender struts that create its brooding profile and define the minimal, high-performance look are exclusive to the Judge. The bike rides on 16 inch mag wheels shod with Dunlop Elite II tires; the raised white lettering on their sidewalls is a pure muscle-car touch.

Victory says the 300 kg (660 lb) Judge provides “premium” levels of power, braking and handling. Victory’s 1,731 cc, Freedom 106 V-twin, is at the heart of the machine. It has a claimed peak torque of 153 N-m (113 lb-ft) and has been fitted to a 6-speed transmission with helical cut gears and a positive neutral finder.

The Judge’s riding position combines a 658 mm (25.9 in.) seat height with mid-mount pegs, so it should be a relatively comfortable and easy bike to ride.

Of course we won’t be able to reach a verdict on the Judge until we’ve had a chance to ride one. Until then we will continue to admire its styling, in particular the way the seat wraps the odd, yet funky, oval-shaped side covers. We also like the shape of the Judge’s seductively sculpted 17 litre fuel tank. Available in black ($15,299), red ($15,749) or “Suede Nuclear Sunset” ($15,749), the Judge is an interesting addition to Victory’s line-up.
