Victory Cuts Down EMEA Lineup for 2017 - Limited to Four Models

Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) riders will only get four Victory motorcycles to choose from next year. And it all has to do with emissions regulations.

Victory Motorcycles recently announced it cut down its EMEA lineup for 2017 blaming that forthcoming Euro IV emissions regulations are the reason why it had to ditch seven of its models for the respective markets.

“We look to a bright future at Victory, learning from our past successes, while not forgetting the models that have made us the brand we are today,” Victory Motorcycles General Manager Rodney Krois said. “Octane was the start of a new direction for Victory Motorcycles, and we can now get ready for the next chapter. Sure, we’re sad to see some models leave the EMEA region, but what follows will be even more exciting.”

This being said, the EMEA region will only get 4 models, namely the Gunner, High-Ball, Octane, and the Judge, all sharing the same platform. They meet Euro IV emissions standards and will also be equipped with ABS as standard, required by European regulations.

These new models are also updated for 2017, and, starting with the new Victory Octane, this got two additional colors (Matte Pearl White, Gloss Black) and graphics as well as new accessories like a 2-into-1 performance exhaust, bar end mirrors, gunfighter seat, billet style parts, tank bag and solo rack bag.

The 2017 Gunner and Judge remain the same, but the High-Ball receives a new color scheme (Nuclear Sunset Orange), while the existing black version gets even darker by eliminating the white-wall tires and graphics on the fuel tank.

Models discontinued in the EMEA range are the Vegas, Hammer, Cross Country, Magnum, Magnum X-1, Cross Country Tour and Vision. They will still be offered in the North American market, so don’t worry.
