Victory Judge vs Gunner

Lets compare them. Since people like to compare!




The pulled-back handlebar, wheels and paint are the clearest differences between the Gunner and Victory’s other bobber, the High-Ball.

While some might complain that the Gunner is nothing more than a repackaged Victory cruiser, they would be both right and wrong. The Gunner embraces the bobber ethic: take an existing bike and peel away the layers for a cleaner look and better performance. While there are clearly things that an OEM cannot strip away (I’m looking at you, license plate holder) that a private builder would, with the Gunner shaving 11 lb. from the dry weight of its sibling, the Judge, to tip the scales at 649 lb. dry (which translates roughly to 683 lb. with all fluids) , the bobber ethic is front and center.

Sure it is different from the Judge but not by much really. I can see how people would be disappointed that the Gunner isn't a bit more unique when compared to the Judge.

What does that weight reduction mean for the performance of the Gunner? Does the weight reduction translate to better acceleration, topspeed, etc???

not sure about performance but it saves us a bit of money so no complaints there.

Anything you can save is great it will basically work out to be free mods if thats what you want to do

It would, but at least in the beginning you can take your sweet time getting to know every bit of your bike in stock form before throwing on mods that will make a difference in how it rides.
