2012 Victory Zach Ness Vegas

Posted on by

Zach Ness designed a series of accessories for the limited edition Victory Zach Ness Vegas. Technically the Zach Ness Vegas 8-Ball utilizes a stock Vegas 8-Ball model and adds many styling accents such as custom wheels, a metallic paint with custom Ness graphics, engine covers and a metallic frame. It’s also worthy of being mentioned that each model comes with a special plate on the engine that features Zach’s logo and its signature.

The 2012 Victory Zach Ness Vegas is powered by a 1731 cc 4-stroke 50° V-Twin 4-stroke 50° V-Twin engine which is mated on a 6-speed overdrive constant mesh transmission.

The Victory Zach Ness Vegas’s ride quality is assured by a front 43 mm telescopic fork, which offers 130 mm of wheel travel and is combined with a rear single, mono-tube gas, with rising rate linkage that delivers 75 mm of wheel travel.

SUEDE TITANIUM METALLIC PAINT WITH CUSTOM NESS GRAPHICS

Victory Zach Ness Vegas

The Zach Ness Vegas was born of cruiser minimalism, but with a capital M. Zach picked up the paint wand knowing full well that black is not black. That knowledge resulted in the bike’s distinctive suede finish complemented by Zach’s own custom graphics.

MATTE TITANIUM METALLIC FRAME AND SWING ARM

The foundation metal of the Zach Ness Vegas sports the titanium metallic paint in order to unify it with the rest of the bike, but gets a matte finish to allow the more up front elements a silkier pop.

NESS HANDLEBAR CROSSBAR

Advancing his custom look to the tallest part of the bike, Zach added a touch more brawn to a cruiser that was already a bare-knuckle street fighter.

NESS CUSTOM BILLET WHEELS

The high performance billet wheels front and rear are all Zach, and send out a bold custom styling message with every revolution.

NESS CUSTOM MIRRORS

Ness custom chrome mirrors add style to a high-profile area and complement the bike’s black suede treatment, making every object reflected in these mirrors cooler than they appear.

NESS HOLESHOT BILLET HANDGRIPS

Victory Zach Ness Vegas

If black suede is the outfit, Holeshot billet handgrips are the custom jewelry. Complemented by the Holeshot engine covers and footpegs, the Ness Holeshot grips help hold it all together.

NESS HOLESHOT FOOTPEGS

The Ness Holeshot theme extends all the way down to the footpegs, helping to give Zach’s signature styling an integrated feel. Now even your riding boots become part of the art.

NESS HOLESHOT ENGINE COVERS

Nestled between the Freedom V-Twin’s cylinders sits the crown jewel of Zach’s Custom Vegas – Holeshot engine covers that direct the eye toward the heart of the machine and set the theme for the rest of the bike.

CUSTOM STITCHED LEATHER SEAT

Comfortable enough to turn any city street into urban highway, and every bit Zack. Except for the imprint, which will be all yours.

106 CUBIC-INCH FREEDOM V-TWIN

Victory Zach Ness Vegas

As the cruiser leg of the family custom design triumvirate, third generation Zach Ness couldn’t wait to get his hands on the venerable Freedom V-Twin engine. The perfectly balanced power plant high performance look and feel he was after, plus 113 ft lbs of hole shot torque that would easily satisfy every cruiser fan’s need for a wash of adrenaline.

6-SPEED OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION

Victory Zach Ness Vegas

As with the engine, the highest performing transmission on the road gave Zack more foundation upon which to build his masterpiece. Zach wanted cruising through town to be all about the look of the bike and the sound of the custom chrome pipes. As such, the Zach Ness Vegas transmission’s smooth shifting helical-cut gears ensure that gear slap has no place in his design.

CHROME EXHAUST

Here, the custom design can be heard as well as seen. A chrome exhaust lights up the right side of the bike in perfect contrast to the understated paint finish. Fire up the Zach Ness Vegas and the thump of the louder yet perfectly street legal exhaust goes straight to the heart.

NESS OIL LINE COVER

To the Ness Family, a road is never just a road, and an oil line is never just an oil line.

ENGINE NUMBER PLATE

No proof of purchase has ever been more rewarding. Each of Zach’s Custom Vegas motorcycles bears a number and an etched facsimile of Zach’s John Hancock.
