Battle of the Americas - Harley vs Victory

This thread may go south real quick. But I'm looking for good honest feedback. I'm torn between purchasing a used 2006 Victory Vegas or 2005 Harley Wide Glide (or similar). Any opinions as to which is the better ride, fun factors, reliability, etc would be greatly appreciated.

Get the Vegas, looks better, and who wants a Harley anyways?


......Now others can chime in with useful information.

I have owned three Vics, two of which were Vegas models ( 8-ball). They will not hold their value as well as the HD. However, they use 1 oil, not 3, have much more horsepower as well as more torque, will and do go over 150,000 miles without having to open them up.There is a series of comparisons on you tube by the wrench at Arisona Victory that goes through the running gear side by side with both engines. If I wasn't raised up pre- computer era I would post a link. Sorry

I'd vote victory. I think you'll end up paying a premium for a average bike, the only good thing is that HD seems to be pretty solid as far as depreciation goes. It seems like I never see a HD under $12,000.

neither..... any VTX1800 from honda... WAY more reliable just as good looking. Similar HP to the victory.... probably more than the harley... and more torque. Oh and dirt cheap.

Victorys do look nice... but a well known dude out here "Victory john" they call him has had his motor rebuilt 2x times already.

Dad sold his 02 VTX1800 that had all of 6k miles on it for 5k about a year ago. That thing was a blast to sucker in harley sons of anarchy wanna bees into a drag race then just leave em in the dust.

Though I own several H-D's and customs with H-D derived V-twins, I'm a bit biased. But, I like the Victory. Both are nice bikes. If you aren't planning on turning the bike over in a short time ... resale wouldn't be an issue.

I've no plans for another new H-D. I would only build a modern version of a '40 knucklehead.

With all that being said, there are better bikes at better prices and IMHO that look better than either the H-D's or Victorys.

The VTX1800 is an incredibly nice bike that can be had at a great price for a lightly used one.

The Warrior is another great metric that can be had cheap!

The Truimph is a spectalur ride that will out perform all the above!

If you go back a few more years ... the Valkyre is an outstanding and seriously under rated bike! Put a 6-into-6 exhaust on it and there is nothing that sounds like it!

Screw everyone that talks about the "horsepower" and "torque" and "handling", etc. Most are too ignorant and have never been on one! Get what you like and feels right for you. I've put 4000 miles on a Springer in less than 5-days in pure joy and comfort! It's not for everyone, but I like. For any potential long rides, I'd actually be torn between taking an H-D or new C14.

They don't take three. You can get away with using only the H-D "special" syn for all applications. But, I still prefer using seperate lubes for the gearbox and engine. It's not a big deal. H-D's are still one of the easiest bikes to drop the fluids!

really... i seem to remember my buddy complaining at how much of a bitch it was to change the oil on a harley compared to other bikes.

Either way to each his own... But like stated there are much better bikes for much less money compared to HD / Victory.

i would LOVE to get my hands on a Triumph rocket 3 roadster.

I have a soft spot AND a hard on for the Vegas. I know that when it comes time to tame it down, I want a Vegas!

Now, I have never put a leg over either. That being said, I have been riding bikes since I was 12 in '68, so I do know what I like.


Good luck with your choice, amigo.

I personally like the V-Rod, but Victory's Kingpin is a close second! One pro-con argument I can appreciate is: Look in your town…any town. How many Harley dealers vs. Victory dealers? Service issues could become a problem. We only have 2 Vic dealers here & both have the same owner…see where I'm going with this?

Harley vs Victory

I currently ride a honda 750cc shadow. Bike has been an absolute trooper - never had any problems and fun to ride. For my upgrade I wanted to try to stick with the American bikes. Based on some of the conversations I should at least consider the japanese counterparts.

H-D had a bad reputation for many years in regards to reliability, but from what I hear they have made HUGE strides in reliability over the last 10-12 years? I've never owned or ridden a H-D. Since I'm really not concerned about appreciation/depreciation as I plan on keeping my next bike for a while, does HD's reliability rival their japanese counterparts?

Almost all of honda's automobiles are at least assembled here in the US? What about their motorcycles?

Fortunately for me, there is a Victory dealer less than 10 miles from my home, so service wouldn't be an issue. Thanx for giviing me something else to consider!!

Not to muddy things more but i had a 1999 shadow 1100 spirit that kicked most harley's in a drag race, had better ground clearance than most, was perfectly reliable (shaft drive) and most people couldn't tell the difference between it and a softtail. as far as american, harley's have gotten better on reliability so i'd go with a v-rod. (or xr1200x)

Just an addition to my earlier post. I have put well over 60,000 miles on two Vics and they have never been in the shop for any repairs. They are bulletproof. So is the vtx1300 and 1800. There are literally hundreds of them for sale used and the price is right. But the VTX's have no soul. The Warrior is very fast but is said to have only about 95 mile range. Honda Sharow Spitit 1100 is a good 100 mile ride, the 1100 Sabre is a better ride. Many, myself included feel the 1100 is a better setup than the vtx. Rocket 3 is fast,fast, fast but looks like a tractor and you ride on the bike not in the bike. Fit and finish not real good. Might have to wait a long time for any Triumph parts except the sport Tiples which are great bikes but not the cruiser you are looing for. You know, no one really makes a bad bike anymore ride what makes your heart sing.

Harley may have made great strides in quality, but they're still not anywhere near the Japanese brands in that respect, let alone Honda itself. Something else that should be pointed out - the Japanese cruisers have truly near-maintenance-free shaft drives available and Harley still has that stupid belt drive that one thrown pebble can ruin.

You can have it, one thrown piece of gravel in the wrong place and you're replacing the belt. In the really wrong place and you have to replace the (not cheap) rear belt sprocket.

better than not ever being able to change gear ratios and having a driveline that robs up to 20% of your power. no thanks.

just not for me. maybe when i'm old and maintenance-free equipment becomes top priority. until then, no thanks.

When you ride 200 miles a day sometimes, maintenance free becomes a lot more important.

If my shaft-driver had fuel injection and had better parts availability, I wouldn't have bought a 919. :P

Kind of off topic, but one of my buddy rider's here at work came over to my desk to ask a work related question. I asked him why he hadn't been riding lately.

Said the bike was in the shop. 2007 Harley. Transmission problem. Quote on labor and parts? 2k.

Only 10k miles on it. And he babied it.

This is pretty simple. If you want the Harley Lifestyle and join the herd, get a HD. That is what you become; a trumpeter swan for the Harley Lifestyle. I've seen it happen plenty of times; Harley's outnumber other bikes here probably 3 to 1.

If you want a bike with good reliability, engineering, awesome power, and none of the false friendships, get a Victory.

If you like the lifestyle, HD.
If you like riding, Victory.




Or save a nice load of dosh and get a VTX1800...

Yes but -20% of honda power still =more power than the average harley...and with less displacement (which is why my 1100 shadow beat anything but vrod's and screaming eagles)

otherwise, do what makes you happy. Any bike is a good bike if it makes you wanna ride

Being that this is a question of Harley vs Victory, shouldn't we be considering H vs V and not including the other rabble?


Once again, the Vic Veg has smitten my heart. Them jugs are plain sexahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

That's an interesting way of looking at it. There may be some truth to your assessment of HD vs Victory. HD does seem to have more of a lifestyle associated with it. That's certainly part of the appeal. Will definitely check out the vtx1800 though based on some comments here. I ride 100+ miles per day for commuting, so reliability is of the essence.

Can't go wrong with the VTX line. I had a 1300 that I put about 2k miles on. Was a great bike!

I'm on my third Victory and second Vision. There's nothing wrong with the HDs. I just prefer the Victory line. I can't tell a 80s Harley from a brand new one. You can spot a Victory from a mile away, plus the engines are alot stronger. I haven't had any mechanical problems with them and the resale value was great on my 2005 King Pin and on my 2008 Vision.

Victory over Harley but have a friend who worked on Victory bikes at a dealer and said the Hondas still are better as far as dependability over both. My vote is vtx, have 1300 vtx that have put 65000 miles on and had to do a water pump and adjust valves and I beat the heck out of it. Change the oil regularly and a Honda will outlast either Victory or Harley.

Still Undecided

Based on the comments in this thread, maybe I should change the name of this to Honda vs Victory. Harley seems to be the clear 3rd place finisher. I'm waiting another month or two before I purchase to try to save some extra money by purchasing during the winter. It'll likely be a Victory at this point but still open to the idea of the honda. Will check them both out.

Victory is a slug compared to a Harley. I've owned owned a Harley and the only reason I sold it was we had work schedule changes for me and the wife and never got to ride together. I've ridden several Vics they have no torque. And as far as "following the herd" that's a personal choice, I wasn't a member of HOG, didn't buy all the cloths, blah blah blah... All bike will have issues and just because one person has a high dollar failure doesn't mean the brand is junk. ALL BRANDS have high dollar repairs. Bottom line, get what brand you want and quit letting others influence your decision so much. Victory offers test rides and Harley will let you rent, go ride and compare.
