If it were shaft driven I'd be drooling. Beautiful bike but it deserves better than a belt drive.

So you want to add extra weight and wonky handling characteristics? I can sorta see the attraction of a shaft for a Gold Wing and such but other wise they don't make any sense to me.

Admittedly since it's a hard tail concept bike commenting on the handling may be a bit much.

I've never experienced any issues with a shaft drive motorcycle which made a notable difference in it's handling - and i'd take the access weight for less maint. and better performance. I always manage to shred belts or slip them. Garbage imo, but it's just what I think.

I think a shaft would just add unnecessary complexity which goes against the concept of the Core. I also don't see how you would get more performance from a shaft since I'm pretty sure belt drives are the most efficient as far as power loss goes. Even more efficient than chain drive.

My Vegas is the only belt drive bike I've had and it hasn't caused any problems in 18k miles I've put on it so far. The only time I adjust the belt is when I'm replacing the tire. It also doesn't require cleaning like a chain does.

Different strokes and all of that.

I have owned shaft, chain and belt. My belt is less maintenance than any of them. I know bikes with over 120 ft lbs of tq with belt and no problems.
I have 15k on my belt and after the 1000 mile service it was never messed with until the tire change. Even then it was still in spec.

That bike is hot except I have never liked the looks of their engine. It doesn't have the character of the Harley engine. The rest of the bike is awesome!

Well it's only a concept bike but in the videos they teased that they were thinking of building it. I can't imagine that they would actually build a bike without rear suspension though. The least expensive Victory made is $14K so I don't think it will be cheap.

Something that is kind of amusing is that while so far everyone who's bothered to post on this Sportbike site seem to love it. The vast majority of cruiser dudes on the Victory forum hate it.

I like the bike, it is nice, but not sure I could buy one. I love an old bobber, what makes one different from another, the time the character each one has. If I see one of these on the road I know there are 1000 more just like it and that looses what makes it special. Look at Ed's bike for example... super sweet, full of character, he built it, made decisions, and you wont find another one just like it.
