The Jackpot's distinctive headlight is a real beauty. It's available from Victory's accessory line for a modest $179.

The new Jackpot is a sexy and stylish new offering, and one that will continue to build on Victory's emerging power in the cruiser marketplace.

Victory has hit the Jackpot with its latest offering, especially with the extra bling offered on this Corey Ness Signature edition, but it's not what many would consider inexpensive.

That little tire up front also makes smoky burnouts more challenging, as traction from the rear tire easily overwhelms the front tire, and the hooligan rider is soon skating along with the front wheel locked. (We do the testing so you don't have to!)

The addition of the 100/6 engine to the '06 Kingpin and Vegas families makes a good drivetrain even better. The Kingpin Deluxe pictured here comes equipped with a windshield, saddlebags and backrest.

This rendering shows a direction Victory was looking at prior to the Jackpot. Its lack of a rear seat is highly apparent, but what's really interesting is what looks to be an aluminum steering head structure instead of the traditional twin-downtube arrangment, using the engine as a stressed member.

If the stock 100/6 motor isn't mean enough for your bad ass, any Victory can be accessorized with optional ($800) drag pipes that will scare your neighbors, as seen on this Competition Yellow Jackpot.

Here's something the crew in Wyoming cooked up, demonstrating their fertile minds. This ultra-custom features a double-A-arm front end, a chopped rear end, and dual nitrous tanks on the fork.

Both the Hammer (left) and Jackpot (right) have identical riverboat-wide rear ends, but fork and brakes up front are quite different, as are the headlights.

The Jackpot can be upgraded to a choice of Ness Signature Series bikes, Arlen's in light blue and Corey's (pictured) in a navy/purple combo. Both are loaded with the same features, including custom paint, billet wheels, unique engine covers and a chrome swingarm.
