2012 Victory Cross Roads Hard Bagger
Cruiser bikes need not be all about looks and imposing presence; it’s also great if it can back up its stature with some great storage, unprecedented comfort, and unbeatable performance.
That’s what you get on the Victory Cross Roads Hard Bagger. Despite carrying a long name, the Cross Roads Hard Bagger is the ideal all-around cruiser that can take you out for a great ride on some weathered asphalt, breaking the wind to your heart’s content.
Packed with a 106 cc Freedom V-Twin engine, the Cross Roads Hard Bagger is the kind of stripped-down touring purist that takes its performance credentials very seriously, capable of delivering 97 horsepower and 109 lb/ft of torque. The bike’s expertly balanced credentials make for a controlled ride that feels like you’re being shot out of a cannon. Joining the powertrain is a transmission system that’s considered one of the best in the market.
Other standard features on the Cross Roads Hard Bagger is Victory’s very own Anti-Lock Brake System, a set-up that monitors what the wheel is doing and gives you consistent, smooth braking from the handlebar lever down to the rubber on the road. As far as the aforementioned storage space is concerned, the Cross Roads Hard Bagger can be set-up with a number of storage options, ranging from 17.4 gallons of soft bags storage capacity to 21 gallons of hard bag roominess.
