2009 Victory Cory Ness Vegas Jackpot First Ride
It’s easy to see why Cory chose the Vegas Jackpot to customize. Big engine, big rear tire on a beefy bike that’s stretched long and low. Better yet, the cruiser motorcycle is powered by Victory’s new Freedom 106/6 engine. That translates to a claimed 14% increase in horsepower over last year’s powerplant, with engine calibrations set to get the most out of the bigger mill. The 4-stroke V-Twin utilizes Stage 2 Cams to push its dyno numbers to a claimed 97 hp at @ 5000rpm and 113 lb-ft of torque earlier in the range at 4300rpm. Gobs of torque are readily available as soon as you twist the throttle, which makes it easy to bark the tires in first and second gear. By the end of the wide second gear, you’re already at highway speed with four more gears at your disposal. Third and fourth gears provide a stimulating ride until around 5000rpm before they begin to sign off. Kick it down into sixth gear and watch rpm drop as the engine settles into a smooth, low-vibe, highway-cruising rhythm, idling along at around 2400rpm at 70mph.

The 4-valve overhead cam engine utilizes self-adjusting cam chain tensioners and features new gaskets to seal everything up tight. The 101mm bore remains the same as in last year’s 100 cubic-inch engine, but the stroke has been lengthened by six millimeters to 108. The longer stroke gives a boost to the compression ratio, which has also been

The 50-degree V-Twin sits pearl-like in the double cradle frame with its diamond-cut cylinder heads reflecting every glint of sunlight it catches. Vibrations coming off the counterbalanced engine are nominal, and a combination air/oil cooled system keeps heat down to easily tolerable levels. Victory did an admirable job of tucking the oil cooler unobtrusively between the front downtubes
