2012 Victory High-Ball | Preview
When the designers of the 2012 Victory High-Ball went to work, they had one main idea in mind: create a bad-ass machine.
This is evident with the no-nonsense styling of the 2012 High-Ball, from the shorty-front fender to high-rise bars to the spoke wheels to the whitewall tires.
And talk about an engine…how about the power from the same 106/6, Stage 2 V-Twin that the Victory Freedom uses, which puts out 97 bhp?
Regarding paint, the 2012 Victory Highball sticks to the bad-ass philosophy, and is only available in one scheme: Matte Black. The only white on the bike comes from tasteful white tank sides, and the fat white-walls of the tires.
Simply put, everything from the mirrors to the dual exhausts on the Victory High-Ball is black: handlebars, headlight bucket, triple trees, frame, fender struts, cylinder heads covers – all black.
The bodywork on the High-Ball features the Victory Vegas signature raised spine running the length of the bike atop the fenders and the tank, and the frenched in tail light that keeps the lines smooth out back.
Among bobber- and stripper-style bikes from major OEMs, the High-Ball delivers a unique styling that looks like it just arrived from a pricey custom shop.
2012 Victory Highball Features:
- Most Performance: It’s got the largest-displacement engine, the most horsepower and the most torque.
- Lowest Seat Height: Cruise in comfort down low while reaching up to the too-cool high-rise bars.
- Best Value: The High-Ball delivers the most performance at the lowest MSRP.
- Coolest Styling: Sure, judging styling is subjective, but come on – look at this bike
- - it’s as much fun to look at the details as it is to twist the throttle.
- High-rise handlebars are adjustable and can be set in the upright position or laid back. The controls mount on the bars in either position and the cables reach in both positions, needing only simple hand tools
- to adjust.
- 16" lace wheels with 130 and 150mm Dunlop tires with whitewalls. Stainless steel spokes and Gloss Black wheels and hubs.

- A 2-into-1 exhaust (black, naturally) will be available and most Pure Victory Gear accessories designed for the Victory Vegas, including passenger seats and passenger floorboards or pegs, also fit on the High-Ball. It’s easy to personalize the bike to the way you want it, and build the perfect bike for you.
