Evil Victory Bikes Imagined by Oberdan Bezzi

Experimenting with shapes and even more interesting – purposes, is definitely one of the most spectacular sources of awesome bike designs. A bold, creative mind which dares to take the extra step beyond the point where “certainties are still certain” clearly has more chances to come up with amazing results. Some call it unnecessarily drifting from the established rules of motorcycle design, but others will thoroughly enjoy it. Me, I’m with the latter category, at least when it comes to Oberdan Bezzi’s latest take on the Victory machines.

Setting out with a proven cruiser base, Bezzi used a traditional Freedom 106-equipped Victory and gave birth to a new family he called Aim High. Three bikes are so far members of this virtual family, an S, an R and believe it or not, an RR.

Clearly using the generous pool of Harley-Davidson XR and Sportster-based racing machines, Bezzi’s ne beasts carry one the heritage of the old-school American flat-track design… with a twist. The S version is the naked monster, with a raised front end, a petite fly screen, a nifty chin spoiler and a chopped-off tail which only leaves room for the rider’s seat. In fact, all three creations are solo machines, intended for hard riding without having to care whether you’ll still have your passenger behind at the end of the ride.

The R introduces us to the hot-rodded design, with a very 70’s front cowl with rounded bulbous shapes extending back to the sporty air intake slot. The added taller windscreen leaves no room for mistake: the bike should be fast enough to make you want to cower behind the protective Lexan layer and keep an eye on the road ahead.

Finally, the RR brings together half of a superbike’s bodywork and the might of a v-twin powered machine. The cowl of the R blends seamlessly into the chin spoiler and incorporates the air intake, adding better protection to the rider and tons of style to the build. And of course, an RR without radial brakes was a no can do, so Oberda Bezzi gracefully loaded some on his RR.

Would you swing a leg over such machines?
