2012 Victory Motorcycle

Since its inception in 2006, the Victory Vegas Jackpot has become synonymous with the term “muscle cruiser” due to the powerful 106 ci Freedom motor wrapped inside custom styling.

And Victory continues this tradition with the 2012 Victory Vegas Jackpot, a bike that appears as a full-out custom directly from the company’s Spirit Lake, Iowa, headquarters.

Besides the wild, custom paint schemes, color-matched frames and frenched taillight, the 250-mm rear tire adds to the meaning “muscle cruiser.”

Following are some highlights, color options, MSRP and specs for the 2012 Victory Vegas Jackpot motorcycles.

Unique Vegas Jackpot Styling

For a full-on custom look, the Vegas Jackpot has a two-tone headlight housing (except on the solid black model) and a color-matched frame. It has billet wheels, including a 21″ (53.3 cm) front wheel and a chrome front end (forks and triple trees). Plus, the rear fender with its frenched taillight rides above the eye-catching, smooth-riding 250 mm rear tire.

Signature Vegas Styling

There’s a distinctive Vegas DNA presence here, too, including the split tail fuel tank that integrates with the driver seat, and the raised spine running the length of the bike.

Premium Victory Performance

The 2012 Vegas Jackpot is powered by the Freedom 106/6 stage 2 V-twin, a fuel-injected, counter-balanced, air- cooled engine producing 113 ft-lb of torque, all hooked to a 6-speed transmission.

Pure Victory Accessories

Pure Victory accessories for the Vegas Jackpot include: grips, lower controls, covers and trim in varied finishes and designs; x-bow and tri-Pro stage 1 performance exhausts, touring seats, backrests and more.
