Polaris Registers Design for Liquid-Cooled VictoryMon, 21 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0700
Polaris Industries has registered a design patent with the European Union for what appears to be a new liquid-cooled Victory motorcycle.
The design sketches, registered and published through the EU’s Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM), reveal a single-seat cruiser with a liquid-cooled V-Twin engine. The overall aesthetic is very much a Victory, with stacked twin slash-cut exhausts and bobbed fenders similar to the Vegas 8-Ball.
The design registration only covers the motorcycle’s appearance. We won’t know any technical details until Polaris releases official information about the new liquid-cooled model.
There’s also no indication about a possible model name, though it should be noted Polaris has filed for trademarks with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the names “Fatty“, “Magnum” and “Rogue“, one of which may end up being used for this new liquid-cooled model.
