Combined performance parts offer 20% more horsepower and 10% more torque for motorcycles featuring the powerful Freedom 106 engine


MINNEAPOLIS — June 16, 2016 — Victory Motorcycles® has teamed with performance specialist S&S® Cycle to offer a vast increase in the output of motorcycles powered by the Freedom® 106 engine, including the Magnum®, Cross Country® and Cross Country Tour®, as well as the Cross Roads® and Hard-Ball®.


The new Made For Victory® S&S Stage 2 Performance Cam Kit® (MSRP $549.99 US / $699.99 CAD) is designed to significantly increase performance without sacrificing smooth engine response at lower speeds to deliver the full-bore Victory Motorcycles riding experience. Designed to be used in conjunction with the Victory Stage 1 Tri-Oval Exhaust or Victory Stage 1 Round Exhaust (required and sold separately), this combined kit generates 20 percent more horsepower and 10 percent more torque than the already potent stock Freedom 106 engine for the Cross Country and Cross Roads models, which is well known for handling horsepower upgrades.


The kit includes front and rear cams, a high-flow air dam specifically designed to significantly increase airflow to the engine, and a calibration download card for the dealer. Currently available in 49 states (still pending CARB approval for sale in California) the kit features a one-year warranty. Dealer installation is required.


A Made For Victory® endorsement signifies factory approval in the use of these products on Victory motorcycles, that applicable quality, emissions and safety requirements have been met, and that your motorcycle warranty will not be impacted with the addition of these aftermarket products.


“Made For Victory products allows Victory Motorcycles to partner with some of the top suppliers in the motorcycle industry,” says Brandon Kraemer, Product Manager for Victory Motorcycles. “This kit requires no additional Dyno tuning or aftermarket assistance and completely removes the normal trade-off of performance vs. drivability that is common when installing different cams. An additional benefit to the rider is a less costly upgrade vs. the aftermarket, with the production fuel system being utilized as it was designed to be without any further components.”


“Making power is what we do and we’re excited to partner with Victory in their efforts to expand their performance product range,” says David Zemla, Vice President of Marketing at S&S Cycle.
