Insights, Strategy & the Idea
After its 9th year of stagnant sales, Victory motorcycles was determined to establish growth or throw in the towel. As the self-proclaimed “New American Motorcycle”, Victory was inadvertently emulating Harley Davidson’s identity and brash, lifestyle-oriented culture. Problem was every motorcycle manufacturer was too, which resulted in a sea of sameness of communications.
Digging deep into Victory owners, we discovered that despite the lifestyle/cultural messaging and media, they had a very different relationship with Victory motorcycles. We uncovered that what truly motivates them has nothing to do with leather or biker bars; it is their insatiable appetite for the high-performance, on-bike, visceral riding experience. Re-awakening the core value of Victory’s brand – an obsession with enhancing the riding experience – we set out to communicate that Victory shares this rider’s passion for the riding experience and is the one brand that never stops fuelling it.

Creative Execution
“Fuel it” became the brand’s mantra, but Victory couldn’t just say it, they had to live it. Capitalizing on every audience engagement to emotionally connect with our audience’s passion for the riding experience, we broke through the lifestyle-oriented conventions.

We were the first in the industry to utilize interactiveTV - allowing viewers to locate dealers, request brochures, chat with other riders, watch videos and get brand updates via Twitter and Facebook.

Very targeted online and mobile experiences allowed “Motorcycle Enthusiasts” to instantly interact with bikes and schedule test rides.
Ads were placed in the middle of motorcycle magazine articles; speaking to riders at the very moment they were fuelling their obsession.
Traditional brochures and print ads were turned into multimedia experiences –snap tags allowed riders to engage with pictures, videos, and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
Engaging consumers’ passion for riding contributed to separating ourselves from the pack.

Results and Effectiveness
The campaign delivered over 2,000,000 consumers who engaged with our campaign. InteractiveTV surpassed goals by 60% with over 27,000 brochure requests and an average of 7 minutes watching videos on the dedicated channel.
Online produced close to 500,000 engagements alone which had a direct impact on converting online visitors to schedule a test ride, which led to a 193% increase in sign ups. Video units delivered 5,113,656 total minutes of view time.

Victory Motorcycles has experienced double digit sales increases every month since “Fuel it” launch, posting a record 22% overall increase in sales while the industry was down -12%.
