2016 Victory Cross Country 8-Ball

Victory's blacked out bagger is back

The 2016 Victory Cross Country 8-Ball is bold, blacked-out, and bad to the bone. The gloss black paint contrasts the matte frame and contrast cut wheels perfectly, giving you that classic custom look. We love the strong look of this bagger and say if it ain't broke, don't fix it. We've always loved that old adage, which we feel definitely applies to Victory's 2016 Cross Country 8-Ball model, especially in the performance bagger category.

Victory's Cross Country made its debut in 2009 and the now 7-year-old is definitely coming into its serving as the platform for pretty much every bagger/touring bike in Victory's lineup (except Vision of course). While the gargantuan lockable saddlebags, killer stereo, 106ci Freedom V-Twin and other creature comforts are responsible for its success, Victory's left well enough alone with the 2016 model.

We're excited to get some more seat time on a long-term Cross Country, based on the simple fact that we've ridden thousands of miles on the beast, and have to report it's one of the best out there for a long trip.
