Victory has just unveiled in New York the new Judge muscle bike featuring a relatively standard style seating position and the big 106 cubic inch (1,731 cc) v-twin. The bike is interesting for a few reasons.
Victory fitted a surprisingly narrow rear tire (a 140/90-16) and emphasizes nimble handling along with straight line performance.
All of the body work is new, with much of the chassis elements blacked-out, including the frame, exhaust, triple clamps, cases and cylinder heads.
16″ wheels are featured front and rear, with a single 300mm disc brake also found at either end. The front disc is squeezed by a 4-piston caliper. Victory describes the rearward control positions and short 25.9″ seat height as ideal for riders with modest inseams (indeed, the female rider in some of the photos provided to us appears to be less than 5 feet tall).
The Judge should deliver effortless power from its claimed 113 foot/pounds of torque and six-speed transmission. U.S. MSRP is $13,999 for the Gloss Black version, while the Suede Nuclear Sunset and Sunset Red versions are priced at $14,399. Here are full specifications provided by Victory this morning.
