2016 Victory Vegas 8-Ball

Pushing ahead with a 21-inch Dunlop Elite 3 front tire under a minimal fender, the new 2016 Victory Vegas 8-Ball makes a bold cruising statement. Red is a primary color for the Vegas, with even the frame getting the scarlet treatment.

The wheel, motor, and exhaust are blacked out, with a few metal highlights shining through. Like all gasoline-powered Victory motorcycles, the Vegas gets the powerful Freedom 106/6 V-twin power-plant that has plenty of torque for runs down Fremont Street.
