Default HD FXSB Breakout vs. Victory Gunner

http://www.motorcycle.com/shoot-outs...victory-gunner

Pretty good review:
Tommy sums it all up: “While the scoring was close, I think it’d be easy for me, given the situation of spending my own money on one of the two motorcycles, to purchase the Gunner and use what I save to buy some new riding gear, bike accessories, then take the wife on a weekend ride to a fancy resort … The Victory Gunner is less expensive, more comfortable and smokes the Breakout in every performance category. Shootout won.”

My buddy on his Breakout has been chasing me on my Hammer since he brought his home! I still remember the disappointed look on his face the first time I spanked him, then again when he put the V&H pipes on, then again when he bought his big sucker air cleaner and again when he put the power commander on, lol you get the point...

Yea, I get the point. My buddy feels the same way as his Hammer chases my V-Rod.

A V-Rod and Hammer comparo isn't apples to apples though. Anyone can get more power out of a wet motor over an air-cooled one.

A Fat Bob and a Gunner would be a better comparison.

Yes... the HP & torque numbers are almost reversed....

This is old... 2010... but it shows the comparison.

69 cubic inch V-Rod made 104/69
100 cubic inch Hammer made 75/93

Truth: The Hammer/Hammer S models were "Muscle Cruisers" only as a styling exercise. Same engine as every other Victory motorcycle... no more muscle than any other model.

The V-Rod has a completely different engine than other HD models. More like a sport bike engine than a cruiser engine. Closer to the engine in a Suzuki TL-1000 than to the Twin Cam big twin engine used in other HD models.

Also, I believe the entire V-Rod design was essentially based on the VR-1000 superbike , H-D's track bike. So, again, no wonder it rips... It ain't no big V-Twin that's for sure.
