2016 Victory Gunner

Called an “urban cruiser” by Victory, the Gunner is a beefy machine that is friendly around town. The fat Dunlop Elite II tires protect the 24-spoke 16-inch rims from pothole damage, while the low seat height makes it easy to find the pavement at stop lights.

The muscular air- and oil-cooled Freedom 106/6 motor means power is plentiful. A solo seat makes a singular statement, as does the blacked out headlight and chrome speedometer.

Other features include a bobber-style shorty front fender, LED taillight, halogen turn signals, and dual staggered slash-cut mufflers.
