2012 Victory Hard-Ball Preview

2012 Victory Hard-Ball Preview:


Joining the High-Ball in Victory’s expanding stable of models is the 2012 Hard-Ball. The black-as-night iteration of the High-Ball’s ape-hanger profile brings a touch of touring convenience with the addition of saddlebags.


In addition to the black and pinstriped luggage are obvious additions such as the two-person seat, crashbars, floorboards, lower fairing and split exhaust. Not as immediately apparent are some of the changes Victory incorporated into the Hard-Ball to better suit its longer-mileage persona.



The re-styled fuel tank holds 1.3 gallons more petrol, and the wheels, while still spoked, increase in size as well. The front grows in diameter to 18 inches, from 16 inches on the High-Ball, and carries a 130/70 R18 Dunlop 491 Elite II, while the rear grows in width from 3.5 inches on the High-Ball to 5.0 inches on the Hard-Ball wearing a 180/60 R16 Dunlop Elite 3. The span between wheels grew by nearly an inch to 65.7 in from the High-Ball’s 64.8 in.


Rake and trail figures are more relaxed, 29.0° / 5.6 in vs 31.7° / 6.7 in, weight increases by 92 lbs (dry), and so does ground clearance by 1.1 in. Seat height, at 26.25 inches, is 1.25 inches higher the High-Ball’s.


Up front the the Hard-Ball features an inverted fork and gains a second brake disc while the braking system is of the ABS variety. Engine and drivetrain remain unchanged from the High-Ball model.


Price and availability are TBA.
