Zach Ness Vegas 8-Ball | $18,999
For the first time, Victory and the youngest Ness customizer, Zach Ness, teamed up to produce a production bike for 2011. The pair had worked together before when Zach tricked out a Kingpin in 2009, but it was a one-time deal. He must have done something right by Victory standards since they allowed him to build a limited-edition run of 350 of this here Zach Ness Signature Series Vegas 8-Ball.
The Zach 8-Ball is a step up from stock and features Zach-designed graphics adorned over the black suede paint. The chrome exhaust is a nice contrast to the all-black bike and the little bits of flash throughout via the Ness Holeshot grips, footpegs, and engine covers are the appropriate Ness-essories for this model. The bike also features a custom-stitched leather seat.
The 8-Ball alone is a great handling bike by itself. So to class it up with custom parts should be a welcomed success. And with the Stage 2 cam upgrade, it packs even more of a punch than the previous year 8-Ball models.
