Victory Motorcycles to Contribute to Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America
MEDINA, Minn. (June 30, 2014) – Victory Motorcycles is celebrating the Fourth of July, a special date in brand history, and honoring the men and women of the armed forces by making a donation to the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) for every new Victory motorcycle sold.
Victory will contribute $50 for each new Victory sold during that period to the IAVA, which is dedicated to empowering and assisting the military veterans who have served in recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“It’s an honor to celebrate our nation’s birthday by supporting the men and women who protect our freedom.” said Steve Menneto, VP Motorcycles for Polaris. “We admire their contributions and sacrifices, and appreciate the work done on their behalf by the IAVA.”
Victory is also making a donation to the IAVA based on Victory owner participation in the V2V Relay, a relay ride in which riders trace the old Victory Highway from coast to coast. This year’s V2V Relay is running from San Francisco to the Maryland Shore, and it will follow tradition by ending on the Fourth of July, Victory’s birthday. Victory is making a donation to the IAVA based on Victory owner participation in, and their social media tracking of, the 15th annual relay.
As part of its support for military personnel, veterans and first responders, Victory currently offers these individuals $1,000.00 off the cost of a new Victory motorcycle. Offers vary and exclusions apply. Complete details are available at www.VictoryMotorcycles.com.
The Fourth of July is a special day in Victory history. On that date in 1998, the first Victory motorcycle rolled off the assembly line in Spirit Lake, Iowa. Every Victory motorcycle in the brand’s 16-year history has been built at the Spirit Lake final assembly plant where a dedicated crew of employees built that first production model on our nation’s birthday.
The 2014 Victory motorcycle lineup features premium cruisers, baggers, and touring models that provide riders with industry-leading performance, comfort, style, cargo space, and reliability. Also available is the new 2015 Victory Gunner, an uncompromising cruiser with bobber style.
