2016 Victory Vegas Review

2016 Victory Vegas on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Style from every angle…

The Vegas 8-Ball (all-black) and the Vegas have had the biggest changes this year. Each has an improved round headlight and colour-matched frames. Victory has also upgraded the wheels for each model, fitting cast aluminium axe design ‘Falchion’ wheels. These are lighter and stronger. The painted frame adds a custom touch, but not a gram of weight. A new, sleeker headlight further slims the profile. The Vegas 8-Ball comes in Gloss Black and the Vegas is only on sale in Sunset Red.

” 106 cubic inch Freedom® V-Twin (1731cc)
” 139Nm at 2,800rpm
” 6-speed overdrive transmission
” 17 litre tank
” Solo seat
” 640mm seat height
” 21 x 2.15″ front wheel with a Dunlop D418F Elite 3 tyre
” 18 x 5.5″ rear wheel with a Dunlop D417 tyre
” 297kg dry weight

 

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.”

 

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.
