The name suggests a risky proposition, but when it comes to the Victory Vegas 8-Ball , there’s nothing risky about riding this classic cruiser on the road.
For the 2012 model, the Vegas 8-Ball gets refreshed styling, courtesy of a Blackline on the design and components, showing off a look that’s very classic in styling. The spherical-shaped accessory headlamp and the very small speedometer located above it exude even more of the classic look that Victory was going for.
More than just the classic styling, the Victory Vegas 8 Ball Cruiser is also powered by the Freedom 106/6 stage 2 V-twin, a fuel-injected, counter-balanced, air-cooled engine that produces 113 ft.-lb. of torque. This engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission that has true overdrive and neutral assist, making it easy to find neutral when stopped. The best performing transmission on the street collects the power generated by the massive V-twin and allows the Vegas 8-Ball to roll fluidly between the curbs. Likewise, helical-cut gears ensure that each shift will be as smooth and clean as the bike itself, while the starter lets you feel the deep, unbridled power of the bike like an eruption of low-end torque on your chest.
With each precision-tuned piston stroke, the Freedom V-Twin’s 4-valve overhead cams and perfectly matched 6-speed overdrive transmission promise to provide unmatched throttle response, acceleration, and passing power.
