You can pretty much put the nail in the proverbial coffin because Victory’s new Hammer 8-Ball cruiser is poised to take the next step in becoming one of the premier cruiser motorcycles in the world.
For the 2012 model, the Hammer 8-Ball returns with the ideal platform for the motorcyclist who wants a bike that he can customize to his heart’s content. As always, Victory offers many custom accessories to personalize the Hammer 8-Ball. As far as aesthetics go, the Hammer 8-ball comes dressed with a sporty bodywork, highlighted by a short front fender and a high-cut rear fender that shows off the 250mm rear tire. This bike also has inverted forks and a removable black cowl that covers the passenger seat during solo riding.
The Hammer 8-Ball’s powertrain system also allows you to travel far distances, thanks to the Freedom V-Twin power plant that delivers 97 horsepower and 113 ft lbs of green-light torque with ultimate authority. The dark heart of the Hammer 8-Ball lies in this system, informing the world of your arrival with every crack of the throttle. Mated to this engine is a 6-speed transmission that comes with true overdrive and neutral assist, making it easy to find neutral when stopped.
Victory is also offering a host of accessories for the Hammer 8-Ball, including windshields, backrests, saddlebags, Vegas passenger seat, grips, performance exhausts, and more.
