The Hard-Ball is probably one of the meanest-looking bagger cruises in Victory's whole range for 2013. If you're looking for a less-chrome-more-black bike with a commanding air about it, then the next-year Hard-Ball is definitely your game.
There's more than the 6-speed overdrive gearbox carrying the awesome 106 ft-lbs (143.7 Nm) torque to the rear wheels to keep heads turning. First it's the mean look of this bike all cloaked in smooth darkness, with red accent pinstripes running across it, bags, tanks and rims, beautifully contrasting with the rest of the machine.
And then there's the ape-hanger handlebar with classic oval mirrors for an almost retro style, all in black, of course. The sidecases provide you with 21 gal (92.5 l) of watertight, lockable storage, perfectly fit for touring purposes, alone or with a pillion passenger.
The 2013 Victory Hard-Ball comes with ABS braking as standard and that's a really nifty feature.
