2016 Victory Hammer S | Motorcycle Buyer’s Guide

Sitting a bit higher than some of the Victory cruisers, the 2016 Hammer S has a performance-oriented style. There are 18-inch Dunlop Elite 3 tires at each end, with the rear tire getting the extra-wide treatment with a stunning 250mm width.

Inverted forks add to the look of performance, while the muscular Freedom 106/6 engine means that you don’t have to back down when sitting at a stoplight. Racing stripe graphics in red and black are your only choice is this mostly blacked out bike.
