A motorcycle to be seen as well as heard

Slick "Victory Vision 2008" has built-in iPod controls.

It may not have a Wi-Fi computer or a waterproof GPS unit , but this motorcycle will still manage to turn heads--in a good way.

The "Victory Vision 2008" has iPod navigation controls built into the handlebars and a dashboard display, according to Chip Chick. That in and of itself is handy, but there are other bikes with similar features. What sets this one apart is a four-speaker system in higher-end models, with an option for XM Radio.

If the bike is anywhere near as fast as it looks, however, we'd suggest skipping the speakers. As we've said before, speakers for two-wheeled vehicles of any kind don't seem like the most logical accoutrements.
