The High-Ball turns in with neutral ease and handles impressively for a cruiser.
We know first-hand how much fun it is to ride the 2012 Victory High-Ball. Victory Motorcycles is issuing a challenge to owners of its bobber-influenced cruiser. The first 50 riders to log 1000 miles on their High-Ball has a chance to win customized engine covers with commemorative badging.

Fists up, High-Ball riders!

The all-attitude, no-frills new bobber from Victory is rolling off the assembly line and powering across America as riders take the “Victory High-Ball Road to 1000 Challenge.”

The first 50 riders to log 1000 miles on the new High-Ball will receive a set of limited-edition “Victory High-Ball Road to 1000 Challenge” badges for their engine covers. These badges will not be available at retail. Riders will have to earn them with at least 1000 miles of fist in the air, wind in the face riding.

“High-Ball owners live to ride, so they’re going to put some quick miles on these new bikes,” said Victory General Manager Steve Menneto. “They’ll have to stop long enough to shoot photos for the High-Ball Road to 1000 Challenge, but you can bet they’ll be back on the road in no time.”

To score the limited-edition engine cover badges, a rider must be among the first 50 High-Ball owners to submit a photo of the bike’s odometer showing at least 1000 miles and a photo of the owner with the bike. Complete details about the Victory High-Ball Road to 1000 Challenge are available on the Victory website:

These riders will also receive recognition on the “Road to 1000 Wall of Fame” on the Victory website, and in Victory Rider magazine, which is mailed to over 50,000 Victory enthusiasts.

The new High-Ball was introduced in January and production of the new model began in early April at the Victory Final Assembly Facility in Spirit Lake, Iowa. This is the plant where every Victory motorcycle has been assembled since the first bike rolled off the line on July 4, 1998. 

Victory Motorcycles High-Ball is a bobber-inspired model that is short on frills and long on attitude.
