2012 Victory Vegas
The Victory Vegas has a name that certainly backs up its overall capabilities. More than just being able to turn heads wherever it goes, the Victory Vegas also has performance numbers that can reap some serious power.
Packed with Victory’s noted 106cc Freedom V-Twin engine, the Victory Vegas is more than capable of producing 97 horsepower and 113 lb/ft of torque. In addition to its outstanding engine prowess, the Vegas also has a low 25.2" seat height and a split-tail fuel tank, allowing for great performance credentials that very few bikes on the market can compete with.
Aiding in the bike’s powertrain is the best performing transmission on the street capable of collecting the power generated by the massive V-twin and allowing the Vegas cruiser to roll fluidly between the curbs. The Vegas also features helical-cut gears that ensure smooth and clean shifting wherever you go. Press the starter of the Vegas, and immediately, the deep, powerful engine erupts to life, making it primed and ready for action whenever and wherever.
Meanwhile, the aforementioned low 25.2” seat height works in tandem with the pulled-back handlebars to ensure a firm and comfortable ride that provides a precise, automotive-style cruise control so the rider can enjoy the road without having to worry about losing control of the bike.

106 CUBIC-INCH FREEDOM V-TWIN
Whether you’re finding your way across town or cruising the city’s glass canyons, the Freedom V-Twin power plant delivers 97 horsepower and 113 ft lbs of green-light torque with ultimate authority. The heart of every Victory Cruiser machine, it informs the world of your arrival with every crack of the throttle.
6-SPEED OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION
The best performing transmission on the street collects the power generated by the massive V-twin and allows the Vegas cruiser to roll fluidly between the curbs. Helical-cut gears ensure that each shift will be as smooth and clean as the bike itself.
113 FT LBS TORQUE
Press the starter and you can feel deep in your chest an eruption of low-end torque. With each precision-tuned piston stroke, the Freedom V-Twin’s 4-valve overhead cams and perfectly matched 6-speed overdrive transmission promise to provide unmatched throttle response, acceleration and passing power.
Any road. Any time. The handlebars are designed for all kinds of riding since their ready reach means easier steering for riders of all sizes.
LOW SEAT HEIGHT
The low 25.2” seat height works in tandem with the pulled-back handlebars to ensure a firm sense of mastery over the machine. Combine that with a more rearward placement of the foot controls and you have a rider who stays comfortable from points A to B and all the way to Z.
SPLIT-TAIL GAS TANK AND SPINE
One thing that sets the Victory Vegas apart from the rest of its cruiser family is its split-tail gas tank. The other is the way the tank’s sculpted sides lead to a raised center spine, adding further testimony to the bike’s aggressive spirit.
AVAILABLE CRUISE CONTROL AND HEATED GRIPS
Opting for precise, automotive-style cruise control means your right hand can just hang on and enjoy the ride. Choosing heated grips can add precious road time to both sides of summer, and may be the best means of enhancing your road warrior reputation.
