Back with the Victory Vision Tour to Isiraider, I took the opportunity to see the consumption data from the on-board computer. This gave a figure of 16 km / l which, translated into units that are easier to work with, is equivalent to approximately 6.25 l / 100. I did not think it was too high a consumption for the characteristics of the bike, although I must also admit that the pace I took during the test was rather relaxed. With this consumption and a fuel tank of 22.7 liters, the theoretical autonomy is about 360 kilometers, about.

I observed that the level indicator needle is a little imprecise since it modifies its value depending on the inclination of the motorcycle. That is, if you hit the ignition key with it right, the needle marks correctly but if, on the contrary, you do it resting on the side leg, it marks less than what is actually inside the tank. And speaking of tipping, do you remember that during the test I mentioned that I was wearing side protections to protect in the event of a fall? Well, as you can see in the cover photo, I did not want to return it without testing how they worked, although later it was also necessary to raise it again. But that's better than see it in the video

As you may have noticed, they are designed in such a way that absolutely no part of the body or the exhausts with what the integrity of the Victory Vision Tour is safe. In the event that for whatever reason it falls to the ground, you just have to worry about removing your foot so that it does not get caught and letting it rest on the protections.

A couple of details that didn't convince me were the pushbutton positions both on the heated grips and the heated seat. The first is in the buttons located above the tank and is a bit far away, forcing you to release your hand from the handlebar and lean forward to activate it. As for the heated seat, it has two switches located in a notch next to the left handle. This hole is quite small and difficult to locate, especially with gloves. Perhaps it would have been more convenient to place the switches more visible, in a similar way to the placement on BMW scooters.

Lastly, the engine rev range is poor, about two thousand laps located between two thousand and four thousand although you have so much torque that it is not necessary to carry the most revved engine. Below two thousand turns, the vibrations of the engine are a bit uncomfortable and you can see that it does not turn completely round and about 4,500 approximately, there are also quite a few vibrations that are even perceived in the adjustment of some plastics. But as long as you stay between these two figures, you will barely notice the engine, and see that each piston is big, but it is very well balanced and insulated.

The price of the Victory Vision Tour is 23,900 euros, which puts it a bit below its direct rival, the Harley Davidson Electra Glide. Victory also has limited editions of three of its models signed by Ness and which we will also talk about. Specifically, the Victory Arlen Ness Vision Tour at a price of 29,900 euros.

By the way, if you want to enjoy a Victory for two months, you can become ambassadors during that period and represent the brand on the back of one of its mounts. You have all the details on the Victory Motorcycles page.
