Victory Motorcycles is about to reveal the best of two worlds, bringing an intense blend of heavyweight motorcycle with V-twin muscle and an edgy bobber style without compromise. The 2015 Victory Gunner is sure to have riders talking, heads turning, and the competition left in the dust after it is finally unveiled to the public this Saturday at noon, at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Chicago.
Until now, motorcyclists have had to choose between a powerful, comfortable heavyweight cruiser and a nimble bike for downtown rides. With the Gunner bursting onto the scene, that’s all about to change. The Gunner boasts a powerful 106ci V-twin on a full-size chassis, a lowered seat height, and lean-angle engineering that makes it ride like no other bobber currently on the market.
“Bikers have been asking us to give them a bobber with some real power – and that’s exactly what we’re giving them with this bad boy,” says Steve Menneto, Vice President, Polaris Motorcycles. “The Gunner’s got the muscle of a heavyweight, the handling of a Victory, and it’s an awesome-looking bobber. There’s no other bike like it on the market, and we can’t wait to lift the cover and reveal it this weekend. The Gunner offers a much-needed option for serious riders in the market for a bobber.”
The Victory Gunner will be revealed to the public on Saturday, February 8th, at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Chicago. The reveal will take place in the Victory Motorcycle booth at the show at noon. The public will be able to get a close look and a feel for the bike in Chicago; Gunner demo rides will be available in March at Daytona Bike Week.
106 CUBIC-INCH FREEDOM V-TWIN
The Victory Freedom® 106/6 V-Twin is smooth, efficient – and extremely powerful. It’s fuel-injected, counter-balanced and delivers 110 ft-lb of torque you can use to own city streets and enjoy extended highway cruising with confidence and power to spare. It delivers instant throttle response and outstanding power you can unleash on demand.
6-SPEED OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION
Every gear shift is smooth and defined with the Victory 6-speed transmission with true overdrive. Its helical-cut gears ensure that each shift is smooth and sure. For interstate cruising, the 6th gear overdrive drops the RPMs and revs up a great ride experience.
24 SPOKE CAST ALUMINUM WHEELS
The lightweight 16″ front and rear wheels have such unique and powerful style that the Victory Gunner looks like it just rolled out of a custom shop.
LOW SEAT HEIGHT & RELAXED ERGONOMICS
The comfortable Victory Gunner seat has a narrow straddle point so your legs extend directly to the pavement from the 25.0″ seat height, enhancing your confidence and control. The relaxed cruiser ergos ensure a comfortable ride on city streets and out on the open highway.
