2016 Victory Vegas 8-Ball Review

2016 Victory Vegas 8-Ball on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Attitude from every angle…

Proven to fit and fit to perform.

The most popular custom cruiser in Victory history gets the blacked-out treatment that makes it a stealthy, understated gem. The ultimate value on the cruiser market, it delivers outstanding performance and it’s the ultimate black canvas, ready for your personal custom treatment.

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.

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.

2016 Victory Vegas 8-Ball www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits


BLACKED-OUT EVERYTHING The Vegas 8-Ball has blacked-out features from end to end, from the headlight to the exhaust. The blacked-out style is powerful and understated. A Vegas 8-Ball rider can customize and add accessories that suit your style to make the bike your own.


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 negotiating city traffic. It provides instant throttle response and outstanding power you can unleash on demand.


110 FT-LBS OF TORQUE With the outstanding power of the Victory Freedom® 106/6 V-Twin, you’ll ride a Vegas 8-Ball with confidence – and with 110 ft-lb of torque on tap. Use the power to enjoy the best cruising, to head out onto the open road, and to manage traffic with passing power to spare.


6-SPEED OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION Every gear shift is smooth and defined with the Victory 6-speed transmission with true overdrive. Its helical-cut gears ensure that each shift is smooth and sure. For interstate cruising, the 6th gear overdrive drops the RPMs and amps up your attitude.


BLACK FALCHION WHEELS The Vegas 8-Ball struts down the street with a tall, 21” custom-look Falchion wheel. The high-contrast wheels complement the bike’s blacked-out style and add a custom look. They also deliver a smooth ride and easy handling.


LOW SEAT HEIGHT Ride in comfort and in complete control with the low 25.2” seat height and pulled-back handlebars of the Vegas 8-Ball. The confidence-inspiring ergonomics provide an easy reach to the controls and let you plant your feet firmly on the ground.


STREAMLINED SOLO SEAT The Vegas 8-Ball seat is comfortable and stylish, and it puts the rider in a position of control and confidence. The seat is styled to integrate smoothly with the fuel tank’s split-tail design. To ride 2-up, add your choice of available Victory accessory passenger seats.


AKRAPOVIC EXHAUST (ACCESSORY) Designed, developed and manufactured exclusively for Victory Motorcycles, Akrapovic’s new twin silencer Slip-On system has been tuned to deliver optimum performance and enhance the thundering American V-twin soundtrack, for the full range of Victory Cruisers sharing the Freedom 106 (1731cc) motor.
