You don’t often associate Victory Motorcycles with off-road riding.
That didn’t stop these police officers from taking their bikes off the pavement at a recent demo event for police models based on Victory’s Kingpin and Cross-Country models. Sure, they’re not hitting the whoops on those bikes, but it’s still interesting watching these officers have some fun and try to catch a bit of air. Warning: there is a bit of colorful language in this video, which isn’t too much of a surprise if you know a lot of police officers.
A bit of backgrounder: Victory doesn’t officially offer law enforcement models. The Victory Police Motorcycles program was not created in the Medina, Minn., offices of Victory Motorcycles or its parent company Polaris Industries. No, the Victory Police Motorcycles enterprise is the brainchild of Tucson, Ariz., Victory dealers Nita Buckner and Mike Schultz.
Victory Police Motorcycles currently offers three models, the Kingpin-based Enforcer and Commander I, as well as the Commander II which is based on the Cross-Country.
