Hey folks. Hope I'm not violating any rules here. Just for the fun of it I created a survey on Survey Monkey asking some questions about the possibility of a sport standard bike From Victory. I don't work for Victory, this is simply for fun. I'd appreciate your responses and feel free to share the link to the survey. The more responses the better. Thanks....

Cannot imagine a Victory sport standard using any of the power plants they now have in production. Headscratch
All they make are cruiser motors.

Them being owned by Polaris, they could probably whip up something quite easily IMO.

They certainly could. Having been a Victory owner the last 11 years, and watching how the company thinks and operates, they have to believe it's going to be worth their investment to make the jump. The Project 156 is an indication, I think, that they're at least looking at the sport standard market and considering how far they could take the Scout motor. Time will tell.

Thanks for participating everyone. Feel free to share the link to the survey with anyone you think might be interested. The more responses we get the better the results. Thanks!

So did Buell, and they were pretty popular.

The Scout engine tuned up to 110HP or so in a 450-475lb sport chassis will get my attention. A small sporting windscreen to get the wind blast off the chest and some soft bags and off we go.

I'd be surprised if they did it, but I'd consider them along with any of the established companies that make a sport standard.  Really, they kinda need to do it soon, though, before they are though of as only a cruiser company and automatically dismissed as not being able to play in that segment like harley.  It's gotta look good and be competitive in capabilities, features, and price though.

I always thought Triumph did it right - when they returned they started off in the sport category so they were not hamstrung by being though of as a company that only makes "classics" - this allowed them to be considered in other categories and now they are a full-line manufacturer.

For any established company with a limited product line it's hard to break out, but it can be done.  BMW was able to branch out into the sport category by going out and flat building one of the best sport bikes ever AND pricing it fairly reasonably.  Had they priced it at typical-for-BMW stratospheric levels and merely made it "somewhat competitive" it wouldn't have worked for them.  Now they can be considered alongside anyone else in the sport category.  Victory would need to do the same - it's gotta look good and be VERY competitive in capabilities, features, and price to be seriously considered right from the git-go - they can't afford to take years to get truly competitive.

Thanks everyone. One last push for the weekend then I'm going to close it down and post the results.

That being said, I've received 355 responses so far with only 5 coming from women. I would love to get some more female input on the survey. If the ladies here would share the link around to any female oriented riding sites it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and have a safe and happy New Year everyone.....
