First Ride: 2008 Kingpin 8-Ball Rolling for

Chrome is the enemy. It costs a lot and if it is the cheap way, it is bad for the environment, is why it costs a lot. But we love it on our so most of the time we get it, and we pay for it.

Victory an alternative. A few years ago, the makers began offering the in basic black, deleting of the chrome and other shiny finishes and giving customers a on price. Or maybe they just trying to be bad-….

In any case, the Vegas 8-Ball was a and the “darkness” treatment has been for 2008 to the Kingpin.

It couldn’t happened to a nicer bike. The is the best-riding “traditional” bike in the line. It’s got like-sized (130/70-18 and 150/55-18) for easy supple suspension with an fork, a comfortable feet-forward position and a nice-running 100-cubic-inch V-Twin.

The latter was an important update. As the worked on engine refinements so the Vision tourers would be quieter and more powerful any Victory before, the same were also applied to in the rest of the lineup. So the anti-backlash gear on the clutch, quieter cam improved fuel-injection, lower gear, etc. that so well on the Vision’s 106-cube are all applied here.

The 100-inch also got a reduced, 8.7:1 ratio, which allows for ignition advance at lower rpm and in better bottom-end torque, response and detonation resistance.

Money-saving alterations continue a simpler, round headlight and no seat/footpegs, either.

Sometimes I am to think about a “60-pin Engine Control Module speed-density based load using manifold air pressure sensor for cylinder phasing, compensation and primary load such as applied to all of Victory’s ’08 But a lot of times I am more stoked to get on the motorcycle and have it run well, the critical thinking about matters to someone else.

Victory did its homework on this of the Freedom engine. It is lively and with great throttle sounds good and has better than ever.

A backroad through the mountains above Barbara during the bike’s introduction also showed a cruiser with good and a comfortable ride. The deleted gear (another money-saving is missed a little on the highway, but for touring, Victory will you to the Kingpin Tour, which has and the overdrive sixth.

In the end, the $13,999 ($14,249 in because of emissions equipment) carries off the bad-… attitude people will see from while revealing its good to the rider. Nobody will the chrome.
