2016 Victory Highball Review

2016 Victory Highball on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Cranked up performance. Stripped down style….

Few bikes get unveiled to such an overwhelming response. Riders flocked to this bobber-spirited, high-performance cruiser with as much anticipation for twisting the throttle as they did for its killer looks.


Finally, there’s the High-Ball, a model that is becoming ever more popular as riders start to appreciate its bad bobber style, white rimmed tyres and its ape hangers.

 

All of the motorcycles in Victory Motorcycles’ cruiser category can now be fitted with performance Akrapovic exhausts.

Owners of the Gunner, Judge, Hammer S, Hammer 8-Ball, Vegas 8-Ball and the High-Ball can simply make a straight swap of their standard exhausts for these new Akrapovic ones.

The exhausts come in either matte black or chrome and have a two-year warranty.

Uroš Rosa, PhD and CEO Akrapovic d.d says: “This is a very a significant event for all of us here at Akrapovic, and we are extremely proud to be the performance exhaust of choice for Victory Motorcycles’ cruiser category. We have a history of creating innovative exhaust solutions using the latest technology, and it is this philosophy that we see in this collaboration. Victory Motorcycles has breathed new life into the American V-Twin cruiser market with its pioneering range of bikes, and we are delighted to align our own unique exhaust knowledge with them. Akrapovic will give part of its world and a whole new character to each and every bike fitted with one of its exhaust systems, and, through the performance, quality, design, technology, and unmistakable sound that we deliver with each exhaust system, all Akrapovic-equipped Victory Motorcycles cruisers will be bikes that stand out from the rest.”

Victory Motorcycles’ head of parts, apparel and accessories, Andreas Geisinger, said: “I was very excited to work with Akrapovic on this exclusive exhaust line for our Victory Motorcycles line up.

“Akrapovic, with their well-known class-leading quality and performance levels, goes perfectly with Victory Motorcycles’ push to produce machines with ‘Modern American Performance’. These handmade exhausts are like works of art.”

No changes to this model for 2016, exactly the same as last year.

2016 Victory Highball www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits


APE HANGER HANDLEBARS It’s impossible to reach up to the High-Ball handlebars and not exude attitude. You’re riding the baddest, most wickedly fun bike on the street, so your smirk and sneer go well with your leather jacket. Stretch out and show the city who’s boss. And if the mood suits you, these bars can also be set back in a lower, relaxed position.


16” WHEELS WITH WHITEWALL TIRES The High-Ball is a fascinating mix of cutting-edge performance technology and some of motorcycling’s most timeless style elements, such as its 16” wheels with whitewall tires. This is exactly how this modern bobber should roll. Along with their classic style, these wheels and tires deliver a great ride and smooth, easy handling.


SHORT FRONT FENDER The High-Ball was designed with a “less is more” approach: If you don’t need it, it’s not here. That includes the bodywork, which is spare and minimal in classic bobber style. The short front fender blocks rain and gravel but doesn’t demand attention. It leaves that for the High-Ball ape hangers, whitewall tires, Freedom® V-Twin, and clean, stylish graphics.


ABS BRAKES Victory Anti-Lock Brakes give a rider greater confidence and peace of mind. When traction is compromised, the ABS immediately and automatically provides reliable braking to help you stop quickly


106 CUBIC-INCH FREEDOM® V-TWIN The Victory Freedom® 106/6 V-Twin is smooth, efficient – and extremely powerful. It’s fuel-injected, counter-balanced and it delivers 110 ft-lb of torque you can use for great cruising or dominating at stoplights. You’ll have instant throttle response and outstanding power you can unleash on demand.


110 FT-LBS OF TORQUE 110 FT-LBS OF TORQUE Do the math: Stripped-down High-Ball + Freedom® 106/6 V-Twin with 110 ft-lb of torque = Incredible high-performance fun. That’s a lot of power for a bike that consists of little more than engine, wheels and rider. Put the power to good use at stoplights, in traffic and wherever else you raise hell.


6-SPEED OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION Every gear shift is smooth and defined with the Victory 6-speed transmission with true overdrive. It syncs up with the outstanding power of the Victory Freedom® 106/6 V-Twin and its helical-cut gears ensure that each shift is smooth and sure. When you leave the streets behind for interstate cruising, the 6th gear overdrive drops the RPMs and cranks up your High-Ball attitude.
