“Victory motorcycles always have outstanding brakes, that aren’t tuned to feel like a handful of mashed potato-potatoes,” we said in our review of the 2005 Victory Hammer. Many Victorys were fitted with Brembo calipers, which gave them an advantage over other cruiser brakes, and in later years Victory-manufactured calipers also proved to be quality items with strong stopping power. Victory’s single-disc front brake arrangements weren’t quite as stellar as the Hammer’s twin front-disc setup but they generally tended to outperform other cruiser brakes when battling in a shootout, forcing H-D to up its braking game by incorporating Brembos on some of its recent models.
