When it comes to performance credentials, the Victory Hammer S holds a back seat to no one. This bike is powered by a 97-hp Victory Freedom 106/6 V-Twin that is calibrated especially for the kind of muscle cruisers that deliver sporty performance for riders of all ages.

At the heart of the Hammer S is a powertrain that informs the world of your arrival with every crack of the throttle. It is combined with the best performing transmission on the street that collects the power generated by the massive V-twin and allows the Hammer S to roll fluidly between the curbs.

When it comes to muscle cruisers, Hammer S definitely knows its own strength. 300mm floating rotors equipped with 4-piston calipers provide the kind of sure-footed stopping that inspires confident riding. Add that to the inverted cartridge telescopic fork that has 5.1” of road-smoothing travel, and the Hammer S will provide the kind of smooth and easy steering that makes it such a joy to be in command of. In addition, with a 250mm tire on the back of a muscle cruiser like the Hammer S, the rider and the machine will both look like they are ready for anything the road has to dish out.

Even the most independent of riders feels the need for human interaction once and a while. The Hammer S’ stylish, color-matched cowl can be turned into a passenger seat. And when you’re ready to get back to that drag bike demeanor, simply reattach the cowl and return to one-up heaven.
