The Naza Group, via its subsidiary Harmony Fabulous Sdn Bhd, officially launched the Victory Motorcycles brand in Malaysia today, with Deputy Minister of Finance Datuk Ahmad Mazlan doing the honours.
The 15-year old American brand’s full range of cruisers, baggers and touring models will be housed at Victory’s showroom and service centre in Glenmarie, Shah Alam. The RM5 million 6,000 sq ft corner shop also stocks a wide range of Victory merchandise.
Established in 1998 by Polaris (the maker of ATVs and snowmobiles), Victory started full production of its first bike – the V92C – in Spirit Lake, Iowa that summer. We were told by GM Chris Chin to think of the Victory brand as “more motorcycle and less mystique”, a more performance-oriented brand targeted to a younger, and more aggressive rider compared to Harley-Davidson, which is also distributed by Naza in Malaysia.
A total of 12 models are available here, and they are the Cross Road Classic, Cross Country, Ness Cross Country Limited Edition, Vision Tour, Cross Country Tour, Vegas 8-Ball, High-Ball, Hammer 8-Ball, Boardwalk, Jackpot, Judge and Hammer S. With such a wide variety of styles, surely there’s something for everyone. All are powered by a 1,731 cc ’106 cubic inches’ V-Twin engine.
Victory has collaborated with famous bike customisers over the years, and there’s an Arlen Ness collection designed in collaboration with the famous family – check out the mad Vision Tour Ness Edition below!
Naza is promising a worry-free ownership experience and easy parts availability, and is backing that up with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty for all Victory bikes. Prices start from RM97,800 for the Vegas 8-Ball to RM199,800 for the Vision Tour Ness Edition.
“Victory Motorcycles will not be a a fringe player. We intend to build the brand to become one of the major players in the cruiser segment of the motorcycle industry,” said Datuk Wira SM Faisal SM Nasimuddin, joint group executive chairman of the Naza Group.
Times are good for Malaysian bike lovers – there really is something for everyone these days.
