Victory’s new ‘Hard-Ball’

1 of 3

This is Victory’s new 2012 Hard-Ball – created by blending the American  firm’s recent High-Ball cruiser and its Cross Country pannier-equipped tourers.

Or, to put it another way, it’s a ‘bagger’ version of the fat-tyred, new-for-2011 High-Ball – itself characterised by its novel, two-way adjustable ape hanger handlebars.

The bike will be available only in black with red pinstripes and is “hopefully” due to be publicly unveiled in the UK at the Carole Nash MCN Motorcycle Show at London’s ExCel from February 2-5 next year. It’s expected in dealers from late February/early March with the price confirmed at £15,995.
