On Oodle, you can refine your motorcycle search by model, price range, year, mileage, color and cubic centimeters. Find Victory motorcycles for sale by private parties or dealers on the site, and click on a bike you like to preview its details. Compare various bikes based on lists of features, overall appearance, price and options available.

When questioning the seller, try to determine the bike’s service history, his motivation for selling it, whether the bike has safety issues or problems you should be aware of before buying it. Enlist a mechanic to inspect the motorbike for hidden problems before purchase, and base your offer for the bike on its condition before negotiating the price. Ensure the vehicle identification number on the title matches the VIN on the bike and that the bike has a clean title.
