Victory does not make a 200HP V4 that I am aware of.

I think I like that Helmet in that color too. Sheryl and I both have that helmet in white for the hot summer weather, but it does look better in this color.  Cool

I wonder if I just post the link for the picture it would work better. Most likely have to copy and paste.

The Raider's own engine is also pretty strong putting out 123 lbs of torque. I have seen some sharp Raiders, with chrome wheels and the passenger seat replaced with a sharp looking Chrome rack.

I didn't care for the looks of the pipes either but what bothered me the most was it was built for a taller person then me. I didn't care for the reach to the bars and since I was only sitting on the bike, I couldn't tell about the reach to the pegs for me.

Checking out the 360 View shows the Raider doesn't look anything like a Victory. I like the overall look of the bike.   Cool

If you get the chance, ride a second generation VMax. Sure, it's a big bike, but that power, ohhhhhhhh my!

Momma always said if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything,,so I won't other than I think they should stick with the Road Star.

I'd ride a Max 2.0,  perfect for Florida.  Needs to shed a few pounds though ( like 100).

VMax 2.0 = 694 pounds wet

Harley-Davidson FLS Softail Slim = 700 pounds wet
