2014 Victory Boardwalk Review

The 2014 Boardwalk is a true testament to Victory's styling and performance expertise. Similar to the Judge, which shared its chassis and main components, the Boardwalk displays rare balance and rider-friendliness for a large cruiser. [more]

2014 Victory Hammer 8-Ball Review

A big V-twin, ginormous rear tire, inverted front fork, and low-riding tail are the key ingredients of a muscle cruiser. While all Victory models use the same exact engine, they manage to provide different thrills. Case in point: The sporty and sinister-looking Hammer 8-Ball is a stark contrast to the smooth and laid-back Cross Country/Cross Roads. [more]

With sound management, the wealthy resources of Polaris, and some help from the Ness designer family, Victory has built a strong, unique reputation in just over a decade and a half.

2012 Victory Hard-Ball Review

Last December, Victory unveiled the 2012 Hard-Ball, a gorgeous retro-looking motorcycle that offers more convenience than the High-Ball (introduced a year earlier) thanks to a pair of rigid saddlebags. This new model also boasts 18-inch laced wheels and all the sex appeal of the High-Ball, including matte black paint with red pinstriping, ape-hanger handlebars, and the air-cooled Freedom engine. [more]

2011 Victory Cross Country Review

Victory, a division of Polaris Industries, puts some fun and style in light touring adventures with the 2011 Cross Country, a motorcycle that will happily take you from one town to another without the handicapping weight and top-heavy front that slow down traditional touring-only models. Here's a nicely equipped cruiser with a modern frame, lively powerplant and obvious panache. [more]

August 19, 2011

2011 Victory Hammer S Review

A big V-twin, gigantic rear tire, drive belt, inverted fork and low-rider tail - those are the ingredients of a genuine muscle cruiser. The 2011 Victory Hammer S is a member of this species, a hardcore cruiser for seasoned riders that delivers exhilarating performance. [more]

July 15, 2011

2011 Victory Vegas 8-Ball Review

Inspired from modern choppers, the 2011 Victory Vegas 8-Ball is a reliable, attractively-priced mainstream cruiser with no frills but plenty of attitude and tuning potential, courtesy of a stacked Victory/Ness accessory lineup. [more]

July 08, 2011

2011 Victory Cross Roads Review

First came the Country, and now the Roads, a Victory touring bike with saddlebags and a whole lot of flair. The American manufacturer knows about technology and bold styling, but also respects the standards of the genre, as demonstrated by the oh-so-smooth retro lines of the Cross Roads. [more]

June 24, 2011

2012 Victory High-Ball Review

Victory offers a new retro-looking, stripped-down motorcycle powered by the famous second-generation 106 Freedom V-Twin with 6-speed transmission. This latest creation sports numerous styling innovations and shows a whole new attitude courtesy of a unique riding position. The blacked-out engine features machined cylinders and staggered, slash-cut dual exhaust in matte black. [more]

2011 Victory High-Ball Preview

Victory introduces the new 2011 High-Ball, an old-school, plain-looking cruiser motivated by the famous second-generation Freedom 106/6 powertrain. This latest weapon in the brand's arsenal sports a number of unique design cues including blacked-out engine and exhaust pipes. [more]

2010 Arlen Ness Victory Vision Review

The limited edition Arlen Ness Victory Vision we rode in Florida this past March is aptly named. The outrageously futuristic shapes and dizzying colours, matched with all-American size and muscle, combine to create a one-of-a-kind visual hit. Designed for stylish and comfortable touring, it appeals to those who want a clearly unique and exclusive ride, rather than a stock cruiser with a few chromed accessories added by the owner to "Personnalize" it. [more]

2010 Victory Cross Country Review

I first rode Victory bikes more than five years ago, when General Manager Mark Blackwell had just finished replacing the unfortunate looking first generation models with delectable new ones, while adding more technology to the air & oil cooled V-Twin, and improving the quality of components and assembly of the bikes. [more]

2009 Victory Vegas Jackpot First Impressions

The bold design of the Victory Vegas Jackpot comes back with new graphics and new colors for 2009, not to mention an extra dose of torque for big V-twin fans. This stylish steed also gets a new, hydraulically-controlled clutch that's easier to modulate. [more]

2009 Victory Hammer S First Impressions

In 2005, Victory sought to conquer a new market segment: performance cruisers. Often criticized for their uneasy relationship with the rider, the original Hammer has evolved into a friendlier machine, with upgraded frame, brakes and engine. I recently had the opportunity to take Victory's latest 2009 Hammer S for a quick spin. [more]

2009 Victory Vegas 8-Ball First Impressions

If you're on a limited budget and looking for a stylish, well equipped cruiser powered by a big V-Twin engine clocking in at over 1,500 cc, Victory definitely has some interesting propositions for you. Take the Vegas 8-Ball for example, a high-performance yet very simple cruiser that's well positioned with a sales price around $15,000. [more]

May 27, 2009

2009 Victory Kingpin Tour Review

Fully faired luxury touring bikes suffer from one major shortcoming - they are big and heavy, especially when loaded and at lower speeds. This is where a standard cruiser with add-ons such as an effective windshield, deflectors for the lower legs, and various side and top cases, really shines. This is in fact the role played at Victory by the Kingpin Tour, completing the line with a capable tourer short of the top end Vision models in size and price. [more]

May 22, 2009

2009 Victory Vision Tour Premium Review

Let me deal right off the bat with the first thing that strikes when you lay eyes on the Vision, and it strikes quite hard: the looks. I am at a loss of "artistic" words to describe it. I negotiated with myself the word futuristic by implication, as it looks like nothing from the past! [more]

The queen of the Vegas lineup is aptly named. Jackpot is exactly what potential buyers think they have found when seeing this motorcycle for the first time in a Victory showroom. The Vegas Jackpot is a custom cruiser offering the same quality and reliability as a production bike. The American brand made no compromises when designing this magnificent beast. [more]

2008 Victory Kingpin 8-Ball First Impressions

A few years ago, the Minnesota-based manufacturer offered for the first time a stylish, blacked-out motorcycle, the Vegas 8-Ball. This machine delivered all the thrills of the more expensive models in the lineup for less than $15,000. Now, for 2008, Victory is at it again with the all-new Kingpin 8-Ball. Sleek and mysterious, it certainly does not lack any appeal. [more]

July 07, 2008

2008 Victory Hammer First Impressions

The "sport" label is used way too often for marketing purposes, which only makes consumers more confused. A number of large-displacement cruisers delivering impressive performance are immediately described as true sport machines. But there's more to sportiness than pure engine power, let alone accelerations times. [more]

2008 Victory Vision Tour First Impressions

Victory, a subsidiary of Polaris, took nearly seven years to develop it, but now, the Vision Tour is finally ready to take on other luxurious long-distance motorcycles. This first grand touring Victory will certainly delight fans of endless rides. At first sight, the Vision Tour looks so massive and futuristic that it feels almost surreal. This bike turns a lot of heads with bold, outrageous lines and a unique visual character. [more]
