2016 Victory Vegas 8-Ball Preview

The 2016 Victory Vegas 8-Ball is classic, stylish, and not too loud. For the person who wants to arrive in style without yelling “Hey look at my style!” this version of the Vegas is just right. With all the strength and subtle Victory styling cues, this bare-knuckled cruiser is Victory all the way. The Vegas is the cruiser model with a little bit of flash and a whole lot of go. We love the more classically styled rear fender on this bike and think this is an awesome base to start adding your own style to.

If you haven’t had the chance to put Victory’s Freedom 106″ Engine to the test, do yourself a favor and try to get on one. The smooth delivery of power and torquey engine with surprisingly long legs is sure to put a smile on the face of any motorcyclist. And if you can’t get out and ride one, you can take their word for it. Victory has been demonstrating their performance all over the world. Electric bikes taking podium at the Isle of Mann TT, racing Pike’s Peak with Roland Sands Design, and the Grizzly Endurance Project just to name a few of the awesome undertakings Victory had on their plate this year.
