The main emphasis of the Victory Core concept is it sand cast aluminum frame. Supporting the engine, serving as the airbox, fuel tank and giving the Core its distinct look. Hence the name.

The Core is powered by 1731cc Victory Freedom stage 2 engine providing 97bhp and 113lb/ft of torque. We're a bit perplexed by its lack of rear suspension, which would seem to remove the "performance" from performance cruiser, but are relieved to see a skinny 150-70-18 rear tire in place of the typically oversized cruiser item. That, along with the neat wooden seat and narrow profile lend the Core a welcome delicateness that contrasts extremely well with the big engine and strong frame.

Expect the Core's design language to be translated to a future production performance cruiser, but also expect that machine to be more conventional and feature rear suspension.
