Victory, being one of the motorcycling world’s most custom-minded manufacturers, has an ace in the hole. Whether it’s Arlen or Cory Ness, these limited-production rides are almost scary cool. The 2009 Cory Ness Victory Jackpot is no exception. Custom wheels, custom paint and exclusive chrome and billet accessories gather to create this ride.
Where does the 2009 Cory Ness Victory Jackpot fail? That’s a tough one. Pricing for this limited-production ride is still slightly less than some Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, non-custom. The diamond cut cylinders and cylinder heads catch light, reflecting it in a sparkling, fiery dance that you can’t find on any other bike outside the Victory lineup. The 2009 Cory Ness Victory Jackpot is a limited-production bike, though, and comes numbered from the factory. Custom stitched seats are standard, as are tear drop mirrors, a billet engine cover (we don’t need no stinkin’ plastic!) and a one-off custom headlight. A 250-series rear tire helps to keep the 106-cubic inch engine under control, and a belt drive is silent and efficient. Whether you’re ready to embrace Victory motorcycles yet or not, the 2009 Cory Ness Victory Jackpot is one ride that’ll make you think twice about where exactly it is you’re putting that monthly payment.
The 2009 Cory Ness Victory Jackpot is powered by the same 1,731cc air-cooled V-twin Freedom engine that powers much of the Victory lineup. It’s a powerful 106 cubic inch displacement twin that provides awe-inspiring power from the low end all the way to redline. The Freedom engine on the 2009 Cory Ness Victory Jackpot features a single overhead camshaft with four valves per cylinder, self-adjusting cam chains and hydraulic lifters, and is fed by electronic fuel injection with dual 45mm throttle bodies. Four and a half gallons of fuel are stored in the tank, providing hours of riding entertainment thanks to the efficiency of the Freedom V-twin and the six-speed transmission. The suspension on the 2009 Cory Ness Victory Jackpot is fairly conventional, consisting of a telescopic front fork with 5.1 inches of travel, and a single monotube gas shock in back with 3 inches of travel and a preload adjustable spring tucked away out of sight to give the 2009 Cory Ness Victory Jackpot that clean, no-nonsense hardtail look. Brake discs are 300mm floating rotors front and back, with the front squeezed by a four-piston caliper and the rear by a two-piston caliper.
The paint for the 2009 Cory Ness Victory Jackpot is really the outstanding aspect of this bike. A crisp, clean white background is offset with dark, tribal-inspired graphics with pinstriping throughout. Priced at $24,499, the 2009 Cory Ness Victory Jackpot is one limited-edition ride you’ll be sorry you missed. Its combination of clean bodywork and stunning paint and graphic treatment coalesce to create what is arguably a work of art.
