Death wobble is/was a result of HD rubber mounted motors and the relation to the three axis of mounting and the pivot point of the swing arm... Do a google search on HD death wobble if you want to know more. They changed some stuff up in 08 to help with this.
In other words it is an HD issue not a Victory issue and has nothing to do with apes. If you are on an HD that gets into this situation the last thing you want is apes but it can happen with any style bar. Being fair to HD this only happens at real high rates of speed.
Bottom line - Victory does not have this issue.
Oh by the way - apes get a bad wrap by those that have not ridden with them. Yes you are not going to be doing the "ride like a pro" BMW course but they are not this big bad scary thing that so many fear. Honestly if you have a bad back, ape hangers are one of the BEST thing you can do to help with this. It forces you to set up straight. Now am I saying you need to have your fist over your head... NO but apes that come to your shoulders are about the most comfortable ride you can get.
