- Like pieces to a puzzle, the CORE slowly comes together.
- Talk about a lane-splitter! The CORE concept is sleek and slender.
- The CORE consists of only the essentials: engine, frame, wheels and front suspension – no rear suspension.
- The design is raw and elemental,and the five pieces that compose the frame houses everything.
- The CORE's unique cast aluminum frame was made by pouring molten aluminum into a sand core, which was removed when the casting was complete.
- The front end features a Works Performance 48mm inverted fork and dual 320mm discs.
- Michael Song (left) and Greg Brew are deep in thought as they work to infuse life into the CORE.
- An overhead view lets you see how streamline the motorcycle is.
- An African mahogany seat on a rigid ride - looks killer but my backside has its own opinion.
- The 3.2-gallon tank has a neo-board tracker look reminiscent of Roland Sands' KRV5 Tracker.
- Victory VP Mark Blackwell said that 'We are all about the future of American Motorcycles' and the CORE supports that statement.
