2015 Victory Gunner: The Bobber is Back

2015 Victory Gunner: The Bobber is BackAre you a serious rider with a soft spot for that classic bobber style? If so, you’re the target market for Victory’s newest model, the 2015 Gunner. Though it doesn’t take the shape of traditional bobbers in that it retains a front fender, albeit a small one, and the tail isn’t particularly “bobbed,” the Gunner nonetheless exudes that custom vibe. Unlike most bobbers, however, the Gunner is a full sized, big bore motorcycle powered by, you guessed it, the Freedom 106 powertrain found in the rest of the Victory lineup. The Gunner is extremely low, with a 25-inch seat height, and offers plenty of OEM customization options including drag bars, a solo seat, straight exhaust, luggage rack, and more. At $12,999, the Gunner is Victory’s second most affordable model, coming in only $500 more than the Vegas 8-Ball. Victory touts the new bike as being equally adept at highway cruising and navigating city streets. According to Polaris Motorcycles Vice-President Steve Menneto, “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.” What do you think, does the bobber styling do it for you?
