QUOTES

Victory Hammer 8-Ball

Totalmotorcycle ---- "The street-dominating muscle cruiser is blacked-out to create a powerful, understated presence. It delivers pavement-churning power and has a head-turning 250mm rear tire. And it’s just waiting for the personal customizing you apply. Like they say, no 8-Ball stays stock for long."

Autoevolution ---- "The 2013 version of the Hammer has been born to inspire respect and admiration: it not only looks like any muscle cruiser should, it also does what such a bike should. Thanks to the powerful Freedom V-Twin engine delivering 149 Nm (110 ft-lbs) of torque out of the 1,731cc (106cc) displacement, the Hammer 8-Ball will churn the asphalt under its wheels."
