Victory Motorcycles welcomes another model to its expanding line of heavyweight American cruisers: the Gunner. Victory designed the Gunner as a “blend of heavyweight motorcycle with V-twin muscle and an edgy bobber style without compromise”. Unveiled today at the IMS show un Chicago, the Gunner is sure to turn heads and hopefully win hearts too. With a retail price set at $12,999 for the U.S., the Gunner strives to leave the competition in the dust.
“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.”
“Until now, motorcyclists have had to choose between a powerful, comfortable heavyweight cruiser and a nimble bike for downtown rides,” says Victory. The plan here is to offer with the Gunner a bike that does both things and does them well. The Gunner is powered by Victory's torque monster, the Freedom 106-inch V-twin. The engine is cradled in the company's full-size chassis and boasts a lowered saddle that gives a seat height of only 25 inches. Victory says that the Gunner's lean-angle engineering makes it ride like no other bobber currently on the market. We can't wait to get our hands on the Gunner and put it through the paces in our favorite hostile urban environment. We'll see if the Gunner truly comes armed and ready for the mean streets.
Gunner demo rides will be available in March at Daytona Bike Week.
