Few days ago, we told you about Victory and Playboy collaboration and brought you some cool photo shoot of the bike and Playboy Playmates, Raquel Pomplun, Anna Sophia Berglund and Ciara Price, for the 2013 catalog, which has now been released.
Victory Motorcycles and Playboy will be auctioning off an autographed Sunset Red 2013 Victory Cross Country with all the proceeds from the going to Operation Gratitude. Operation Gratitude is a charitable organization dedicated to providing material and emotional support to America’s armed forces and their families.
“The auction’s winning bidder will be riding a 2013 Victory bagger loaded with attitude and performance, and all proceeds will go to Operation Gratitude to support its outstanding programs,” said Steve Menneto, Pol,aris Vice President of Motorcycles.
This special bike, along with Playboy Playmate Raquel Pomplun, graced the cover of the 2013 Victory catalog. The bike has been autographed by Raquel and fellow Playmates Anna Sophia Berglund and Ciara Price. All of whom were featured in the Victory catalog photo shoot that happened last summer at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.

Victory has participated with Operation Gratitude for several years, and in 2010, the keys to a new Victory motorcycle were included in the organization’s 600,000th care package. “Victory is proud to support Operation Gratitude programs that benefit our military, their families and first responders,” Menneto said.
