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.
This week we ride two genre-departing motorcycles from the established American manufacturers. Jess McKinley gives us his thoughts on the all new Harley-Davidson Pan America Special, and Ron Lieback gives his on Indian’s latest version of the FTR 1200 S.
