2016 Victory Hammer S Review

2016 Victory Hammer S on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

The Modern American Muscle Cruiser….

When you pick up a hammer everything looks like a nail. On the HAMMER®S, every open roads begs to be conquered with 113 ft-lbs of torque and a 250mm rear tire. Blacked-out styling, inverted front forks, and dual disc brakes rounds out its powerful punch.


The Hammer S is on sale only in Black with Red Rally Stripes this year. Its sister bike, the Hammer 8-Ball (8-Ball versions are always completely black), gains the same wheels of the “S” but keeps its footpegs in a forward position, so this is the cruiser to choose for those who want the classic American cruiser riding position. The Hammer S has dual front discs for a more aggressive riding style while the Hammer 8-Ball has a single disc.

” 106 cubic inch Freedom® V-Twin (1731cc)
” 139 Nm at 2,800rpm
” 6-speed overdrive transmission
” 17 litre tank
” Two-up seating
” 673mm seat height (Hammer S) and 660mm (Hammer 8-Ball)
” 18 x 3.5″ front wheel with a Dunlop D418F Elite 3 tyre
” 18 x 8.5″ rear wheel with a Dunlop D418F Elite 3 tyre
” 306kg (Hammer S) 303kg (Hammer 8-Ball) dry weight

The Hammer S is on sale only in ‘Black With Red Rally Stripes’ for 2016.

 

The 2016 Cruiser line-up is the brand’s most aggressive iteration of American muscle yet.

The line-up consists of the Vegas 8-Ball (all-black) and Vegas, the Hammer 8-Ball and Hammer S performance cruisers and the Judge sport-cruiser. Let’s not forget the Gunner, which has been a huge sales success and finally, the High-Ball, which is in high demand for its bobber-style.

Three of the cruisers – the Judge, Hammer S and Gunner – have the footpegs placed mid-frame instead of forward, giving riders in EMEA a sportier riding position to what riders in the USA have.

The Gunner, High-Ball and Judge all have ABS as standard.

 



2016 Victory Hammer S www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

250MM Rear Tire

This isn’t a fat rear tire. This is a muscular Dunlop® that grips the road, and never lets go.



Dual Disc Brakes

The only things that can slow down this much modern American muscle are dual disc brakes.



Inverted Forks

This much muscle demands inverted forks to turn straight-line power into turn-carving performance.

 


Racing Style Paint

This muscle car inspired paint desing compliments the overall style of this cruiser.




 

2016 Victory Hammer S www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits


106 CUBIC-INCH FREEDOM V-TWIN Whether you’re finding your way across town or cruising the high street, the Freedom V-Twin power plant delivers 88 horsepower and 103 ft lbs of green-light torque with ultimate authority. The heart of every Victory Cruiser machine, it informs the world of your arrival with every crack of the throttle.


6-SPEED OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION The best performing transmission on the street collects the power generated by the massive V-twin and allows the Vegas 8-Ball to roll fluidly between the curbs. Helical-cut gears ensure that each shift will be as smooth and clean as the bike itself.


103 FT LBS TORQUE Press the starter and you can feel deep in your chest an eruption of low-end torque. With each precision-tuned piston stroke, the Freedom® V-Twin’s 4-valve overhead cams and perfectly matched 6-speed overdrive transmission promise to provide unmatched throttle response, acceleration and passing power.


DUAL-DISC BRAKES AND INVERTED FRONT FORK When it comes to muscle cruisers, Hammer S definitely knows its own strength. Three hundred millimeter floating rotors equipped with 4-piston calipers provide the kind of sure-footed stopping that inspires confident riding. The inverted cartridge telescopic fork has 130 mm of road-smoothing travel, and awards a Hammer S rider with smooth easy steering, in town and on the open road.


MID MOUNTED CONTROLS The mid mounted controls put the driver in an active, engaged riding position. The rider is confidently in total command of the bike, and the ergonomics ensure long-riding leg comfort for riders on the open road.


250-MM REAR TYRE Put a 250 mm tyre on the back of a muscle cruiser like Hammer S, and rider and machine will both look like they are ready for anything the road has to dish out. In this case, looks aren’t deceiving. This tyre will stick to the road no matter the condition, and make any rim proud to be associated with it.


REMOVABLE PASSENGER COWL Even the most independent of riders feels the need for human interaction once and a while. When that time comes, yank the stylish, color-matched cowl and there’s your passenger’s ticket to ride. When ready to get back to that drag bike demeanor, simply reattach the cowl and return to one-up heaven.


Racing Style Paint This two-tone paint compliments the overall race style of this cruiser.
