Victory launches 2012 High-Ball

Another variation on America's other V-twin cruiser revealed in New York

AS THE New York Motorcycle Show opens today, Victory has taken the opportunity to reveal the first of its 2012 – yes, 2012 – models.

Let's let their own words take it from here. No mid-life crisis digs, right?


Stripped down. Bare bones. A bold throwback. The all-new Victory High-Ball rumbles down the road in the spirit of the classic bobber with an outright refusal to sacrifice performance along the way. Built piece by piece around the road-pounding 106 Freedom V-Twin, it’s a ride with all the power and agility you’d expect from a Victory. If you’re a pure rider with a passion for old-school styling, this is the bike you fire up for the first time and never look back.

Ape-Hanger Handlebars

Make a statement with two fists in the air. These blacked-out Apes give this bike its signature profile and send grown men running for their mommy’s. Pull ‘em down low for a more relaxed, but no less intimidating riding position

Short Front Fender

Less is more. This shorty front fender offers protection from whatever the road throws your way without taking away from the “bare necessities” spirit of the bobber style.

216-Inch Lace Wheels with White Sidewalls

Wide 16-inch wheels, featuring an old-school lace design with white sidewalls, are a throwback to a classic style and help give our bike a custom feel right out of the box. Wherever you want to go from here, these wheels will take you.

Blacked-Out 106 cu. in. Freedom V-Twin

Like a dark storm cloud rumbling on the horizon, our blacked-out powerhouse will alert the townspeople of your impending arrival. The road-pounding Freedom V-Twin kicks out an incredible 97 hp and 113 ft.-lb. of torque. Hell yeah!

Blacked-Out Exhaust Pipes

Ain’t no chrome here. We gave the High-Ball a blacked-out paint job, head to tail, that gives it all the happy, coziness of the Grim Reaper. So if you ever find yourself needing to blend in with pavement, this is your bike.

Two-Tone Tank with New Victory Logo

The matte-black and white color scheme on the tank tie it in with the rest of the bike. Then we ditched the usual badge in favor of a specially designed, painted-on logo that gives this bike a true custom look.
