Victory VS. BMW Police Bike Challenge + Video
A notice to any potential law breakers out there: Victory is getting in on the police bike business. Using stock Cross Country models modified with only lights and sirens, the Victorys may not be as ill-equipped for chases (at least slow speed, parking lot chases) as you might think.

Nonetheless, watch “Bobby” aboard the Victory rip through this cone course with a BMW R1200RT police bike trying to follow suit. Listening to the guy behind the camera, we hear this course is setup specifically for the BMW, and this is only Bobby’s third time through the course on the Victory. No matter, it’s definitely an impressive display of riding.
So the next time you dismiss a Victory as an ill-handling pig, you might want to think again.
