Looks great but I don't think much of the hard tail rear end.  OK on a show bike obviously but not very real world.

Meh, not a big fan. Too many concepts trying to be too futuristic.

Let me preface my comment by claiming not to know much.

My frist glance at the pic i would've thought it was a Harley V-Rod if you hadn't said it was a victory bike.

I will bet that it has some sort of rear suspension hidden behind that hard tail look.

Hardtail Victory CORE Concept

Sorry fellas,

According to the article on the Motorcycle-USA.com web site there is no rear suspension.

"And look as long as you like, but you won’t find any rear suspension. No, it’s not a softail. We’re talking one rigid ride as the rear suspension has been nixed in Victory’s move to minimalism."
