Considering a Gunner.
I need to put my hands up and say that although I've been riding for years and visited many showrooms, I've never paid much attention to Victory bikes, so I know little about them.
However, recently threw a leg over a Gunner in a showroom and was absolutely AMAZED at the low weight/center of gravity, so much so that I'm now thinking of trading in my 2014 Triumph T'bird Storm for a new Gunner, but there is no demo bike available and I have a couple of concerns.
First... base price seems very good, but some things which are essential bumps the price up, pillion seat/pegs, exhaust system, not much else I would really want as I'm not a great 'modder'. Is this where Victory make up for low base prices also would it be normal for a dealer to negotiate on new bike and accessories?. Are services and service parts also expensive?
The other concern is from reading various reviews which seem to suggest the Gunners' gearchange is harsh/clunky, anyone know what this is all about and is it a problem?. This is what is holding me back most as I'm not really keen on clunky cog swapping or general mechanical noise.
Thanks for any info.
PS any other general thoughts on buying/owning a Gunner.
