2012 Victory High-Ball Bobber Preview

It looks like American manufacturer Victory Motorcycles has gone back to old school with its new High-Ball bobber. Featuring matte paint schemes, whitewall tread tires, ape hangers and no sign of chrome, the bike is a true attention grabber.

The matte paint scheme shown is black with an accent of white on the tank, complemented by old school whitewall tires. Other highlights include a low, solo seat, and standard ape hanger handle bars.

Victory describes the High Ball as “Stripped down. Bare bones. A bold throwback. The all-new Victory High-Ball rumbles down the road in the spirit of the classic bobber with an outright refusal to sacrifice performance along the way. Built piece by piece around the road-pounding 106 Freedom V-Twin, it’s a ride with all the power and agility you’d expect from a Victory.”

“If you’re a pure rider with a passion for old-school styling, this is the bike you fire up for the first time and never look back,” says the American motorcycle manufacturer.

The new High-ball is available in the United States starting this April, in Solid Black color scheme, and it is priced at $13,499.
