2016 Victory Cross Country 8-Ball

Stripped down to basics, the 2016 Victory Cross Country 8-Ball is about getting where you need to go with out fancy accouterments and doing it in blacked-out style.

You still get the necessities—a large fork-mounted fairing, 21 gallons of lockable and weatherproof storage, twin front disc brakes and plenty of room for the rider. Of course, it also has the Freedom 106/6 powerplant that is tuned to prove the rider with 106 ft/lbs of torque from the 106 ci displacement. Inverted forks, rear air shock, and plenty of lean angle make the Cross Country 8-Ball handle well.
