Deconstructed for modern nomads: The Core Concept.

"Brainchild of Michael Song, Victory’s Lead Industrial Designer, the CORE concept bike is a power motorcycle displayed at the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show in New York that just weighs 469 pounds. Featuring heavy bodywork finished with cast aluminum frame and Victory’s latest Freedom 106/6 Stage 2 engine with a proprietary six-speed gearbox, the CORE concept bike is a strip-down package for modern nomads.

The CORE generates power by its influential 1731cc engine, while hefty 320mm dual discs are good enough to stop the 469-lb bike swiftly. Breaking from the traditional bodywork, the motorcycle presents an inside-out frame design. The power bike also includes a slim 3.2-gallon tank, single 240mm disc at the rear to assist the dual set-up on the front and LED tail/turn/brake lights integrated to the thin wooden seat."
