At the NYC International Motorcycle Show last week, Victory Motorcycles introduced their new CORE concept bike. Designed by Michael Song as an all muscle power cruiser with less conventional looks, the bike was stripped down to its raw essence to help set new standards. An amazing mix of art and science, CORE uses a cast-aluminum frame that houses all the mechanicals and is powered by a 1731cc V-twin motor mated to a six-speed gearbox that outputs a stunning 97 hp and 113 lb-ft of torque. Though it’s a completely unique bike that pushes the boundaries, Victory is sadly not going to have it produced… so we can only hope it will serve as inspiration to others. [via Motorcycle USA]
