2015 Victory Magnum

2015 Victory Magnum
MSRP $21,999

Victory has given the new 2015 Magnum “the largest production bagger wheel” up front, a 21-inch cast contrast cut hoop appropriately called “Black Roulette.” Victory tweaked the fork, retuning the dampers and stiffening the springs with a progressive dual-rate set-up. Victory dropped the rear an inch achieved by reworking the suspension linkage for a more progressive rate and retuning the shock in return the Magnum lost 1.2-inches of travel on the rear. A new ‘Low-Pro’ Seat hugs the back fender as Victory has dropped the Magnum’s seat height to 25.7-inches compared to the Cross Country’s 26.3-inch high perch. The seat is scooped more and the pillion thinner and tapered and fits the flow of the tank and back fender well. The Victory Magnum goes ‘Boom’ courtesy of six-speakers wedged into the front fairing, has a boomerang windshield, and provides reliable braking with the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS).
