After tryng the 2009 Kingin Low at the NYC Motorcyle show (Jan '09), I decided that this was the best Victory model for me (I'm short too!). In February, I went window shopping at my local Victory Dealer and found a left-over, 2007 Kingpin Tour in pearl while and grey metallic...just beautiful! Since Victory was offering serious discounts to move the older model bikes, along with a 5 year warranty, I talked to the dealer about converting the bike to the Low...needless to say, the deal was on!! I don't remember the exact cost of the conversion, itself, because I had some other upgrades too, but the low seat and side covers (cowels) were the biggest expense...approximately $500-$600 and $300-$400, respectively. The cost of the pulled-back handlebars, new cables and hardware for the floorboards was relatively cheap compared to those items. And, of course, there's the labor cost to consider. However, keep in mind that during those long winter months, the maintenance shop is looking for work, so the dealer is more likely to work with you on the labor costs, so try to negotiate a little. Overall, the coversion cost me a few bucks, for sure. However, I was able to get a new, fully dressed, Kingpin Low (Tour), with a 5 year warranty, that was priced well-below the asking price for a new 2009 Kingpin, with no add-ons. For me, it was definately worth it...I love my bike!!Also, I have upgraded my handlebars and cables since the initial purchase and I have still have the 2" pulled-back handlebars and cables if you're interested. Just let me know and we can talk. For now, I'm keeping them as a back-up.Good luck with your decision!
