The new Harley-Davidson 48 is supposed to help the American firm attract a new younger fashion-conscious audience. The 48 is basically a stripped-back Sportster 1200, with a wide 150-section front tyre. The speedo is mounted flat on the top yoke and the mirrors are mounted under the handlebars to give the 48 a flat-topped look.

MCN Roadtest: Long distance travels on a Victory Vegas
My fellow workers here at MCN think the Victory Vegas 8-Ball that I've got on long-term-test is only good for slow cruising and showing off so I thought I'd prove them wrong by piling on some serious miles.

Victory Motorcycles: Hammer vs. V-Rod
