Victory Motorcycles® is focusing on performance. The very first Victory motorcycle brief was simple: build a motorcycle that’s more powerful and handles better than any other American cruiser. Eighteen years later, Victory remains dedicated to the pursuit of performance. For 2017, after achieving a 2nd place podium position at the Isle of Man TT with the Victory RR, becoming the 2nd and 3rd fastest motorcycles to climb Pikes Peak with the Empulse® RR and Project 156, accomplishing a circumnavigation of the globe in record time with Urs “Grizzly” Pedraita and his Victory Cross Country Tour®, and setting a Guinness World Record burnout with Joe “Vertical” Dryden aboard an Octane®, America’s motorcycle manufacturer is geared up for its most powerful year ever, redefining what an America V-twin motorcycle can be. Whether it’s our 1200cc Octane®, five-model Cruiser family, Magnum®, Magnum® X-1 and best-selling Cross Country® Bagger models, Cross Country Tour® and Victory Vision® Touring models or electric Empulse® TT, these bikes are just the beginning of a new era in American motorcycle performance.
OCTANE®. POWER TO BURN.
Drop the clutch and light up that rear tire. Octane® makes it easy by following classic American musclecar formula: a powerful motor in a lightweight chassis. What’s left is just what you need to go very fast and without distraction. Featuring a high revving liquid-cooled 60-degree V-Twin with four-valve heads and dual-overhead cams that makes 104 horsepower and 76 foot-pounds of tire-shredding torque, Octane® has the heart of a Pikes Peak International Hill Climb™ racer and a 0-60 mph time that makes it the quickest Victory ever produced. But power is only half of the musclebike equation. There’s also a stiff and lightweight cast-aluminum frame, sharp steering geometry, a tight wheelbase, and 32 degrees of lean angle that together deliver agility previously unknown to American V-Twin motorcycles. Need more power? Need more sound? Check out the Victory’s Stage 2 Kit that includes an air intake and 2-1 exhaust to offer 10% more horsepower and 5% more torque. Fast, capable, stylish and affordable. Victory’s Octane® is the formula for the Modern American Musclebike. Available in Gloss Black ($9,999), Matte Super Steel Gray ($10,499), Matte Pearl White ($10,499) and Gloss Black with Graphics ($10,499).
GUNNER. SUPERIOR FIREPOWER.
Take aim at the competition with this modern bobber, inspired by the original bobbers built by returning World War II vets who were hungry to recreate the adrenaline rush of flying a P-51 Mustang® fighter plane. Powered by the 106 cubic-inch Freedom® V-Twin mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed overdrive transmission, the Gunner has enough torque – 110 ft.-lb., in fact – available for takeoff. Combine that performance with the confidence inspiring riding position gained from a low 25-inch solo saddle and pullback handlebars, and you have the ideal recipe for a performance bobber. Available in Suede Titanium Metallic ($13,499) and Suede Sagebrush Green Metallic ($13,899).
HIGH-BALL®. STRIPPED-DOWN SPEED DEMON.
Raise your fists and leave the civilized world behind on High-Ball®. There’s no radio or radiator, no saddlebags or sissybar, nothing to take the attention away from the big-bore V-Twin sitting in the belly of this beast. Reach up and grab some attitude with the ape-hanger handlebars and let the 16-inch spoke-alloy wheels roll. New for 2017, choose from a new Suede Black color with black-wall tires ($13,499) or a new Suede Nuclear Sunset Orange ($13,749) color with white-wall tires.
HAMMER® S. PRO STREET PERFORMANCE.
Drop the hammer on the competition with the Hammer S, the most aggressive cruiser in Victory’s lineup. Equipped with a big-block Freedom® 106 V-Twin engine, burly inverted fork and a pair of strong-stopping four-piston brake calipers that look like they came off of a sportbike, extra wide pro stock-inspired 250-series rear rubber, a sleek rear cowl with a hideaway passenger pad and bodywork wrapped in musclecar racing stripes, the Hammer S is a streetfighter with an American soul. Available in Gloss Black with White Racing Stripes ($15,599).
VEGAS® ATTITUDE FROM EVERY ANGLE.
Put some power into your profile with the Freedom® 106-powered Vegas®. Featuring clean custom styling, a color-matched frame, and a contrast-cut 21-inch front wheel, Vegas® is the cleanest looking and most powerful factory custom made today. Check out the tucked-in headlamp, 21-inch contrast-cut Falchion™ front wheel, elegant pullback handlebars, slash-cut muffler tips, flush-mount LED taillight, and blacked-out details that make the rich Sunset Red metallic paint with matching frame really pop. Of course, since this is a Victory, the Vegas isn’t all show. With the same Freedom® 106/six-speed overdrive combination as the rest of the Cruiser lineup, Vegas packs more than enough power to knockout any stoplight challengers, too. Available in Sunset Red ($13,999) with color-matched frame.
VEGAS® 8-BALL. ROLLING THE DARK STREETS.
Sinister and blacked out, sparse use of chrome details, and a 21-inch contrast-cut Falchion™ front wheel named after a sword known for its versatility and ready to slice out plenty of attention. This is the Vegas® 8-Ball. Front to back, the Vegas® 8-Ball is sculpted by a tucked-in headlamp, chrome gauge cluster, black risers and pullback handlebars, slash-cut muffler tips and a flush-mount LED taillight. Like its sibling, it runs on a Freedom® 106 V-Twin producing 110 Ft.-Lbs. of pulse-pounding torque mated to a smooth six-speed overdrive transmission. Available in Gloss Black ($12,999).
MAGNUM® X-1. LIMITED EDITION MODEL DESIGNED FOR SERIOUS MUSIC AND MOTORCYCLE FANS.
The 2017 Magnum® X-1 takes the stage powered by a 200-watt 10-speaker surround sound audio system. Loaded with custom features such as contrast-cut billet wheels – featuring a 21-inch front – a new custom paint scheme and LED lighting, this may be the only motorcycle on the market that attracts both custom motorcycle fans and concert groupies. Available in Pearl White with Platinum overlay and Electric Red pinstriping ($24,499). Continue reading ‘2017 Victory Motorcycles Lineup. Increased Power. More Standard Features.’
