2016 Victory Judge Review
2016 Victory Judge on www.Totalmotorcycle.com
Let the odometer do the talking….
American muscle never died. It just needed handlebars. The Judge rumbles forth from a time when nothing subtle ever ruled the road. It’s modern performance with an old-school soul.
This is one of Victory Motorcycles’ sportiest models and one of the best-selling Victory bikes in EMEA region in 2015. The Judge is recognisable out of the other cruisers from the race number ‘106’ on the side with the 106 referring to the engine capacity in cubic inches. This year it’s on sale in a new colour – Sunset Red with Black Rally Stripes.
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.”
