For the first (and more distinctive) of the 2012 rigs, Victory piled on to the existing Cross Country, adding a top box, tall windshield and hard plastic lowers, thus casting it as a longer-haul touring machine. In fact, Victory bills it as the motorcycle with the "World's largest Storage Capacity." The biggest chunk of that capacity comes from the copious 17.7-gallon Lock & Ride trunk - previously an optional accessory on 2011 Cross Country machines - that's now standard issue, as is a new 20.5-inch tall windscreen, which is a full 8 inches taller than the unit on the standard Cross Country. Those new lockable hard-shell lowers also offer a 1.0-gallon storage capacity (each) and include an iPod-ready cord that connects with the bike's integrated audio system, as well as an integrated 12V power outlet for any auxiliary accessories. The lowers also offer built-in wind deflectors, and are mounted on highway bars that provide tip-over protection. Other premium features include HID headlights, heated seats, an adjustable rear suspension, adjustable passenger floorboards, and (drumroll, please) ABS - as standard equipment. Yep, seems that Victory listened to all our moaning over the years about the lack of ABS, and for 2012, not just the new Cross Country Tour but all Victory touring bikes have ABS as standard. By comparison, in 2o11, you could only get it on the Vision Tour and Arlen Ness Vision.
