Victory pumped up its Vegas with a Freedom 106/6 V-Twin, Stage 2 cams, and lengthened its stroke to make what Victory hails as its ‘quickets motorcycle ever produced.’

in a 6 mm-longer stroke, Stage 2 cams and almost 100cc more power to play with and you’ve got a Vegas that should really romp. To add to its sporty demeanor, Victory jazzed up the Vegas LE with racing stripes down its fenders and tank and added a 106 race plate graphic.

Victory claims that the 2010 Victory Vegas Limited Edition motorcycle is “the leanest and meanest Victory ever offered. Featuring the Freedom106/6 with Stage 2 cams, the Vegas LE pumps out 97 hp and 113 lb-ft of torque and features a Bonneville Salt Flats-inspired paint scheme.”

“We wanted to honor racers that have brought Victory Motorcycles to the Bonneville Salt Flats,” says Victory Product Manager Gary Gray. “Bonneville is one of the most harsh racing environments on the planet, and racers such as Gregor Moe, Laura Klock of Klock Works, Matt Waring of MBW and others have helped show the potential of our motorcycles to the world. So we started with our lightest bike and our largest most powerful engine and added a Limited Edition paint scheme to create a unique motorcycle, plus we priced it aggressively.”
