Victory Motorcycles High-Ball - Click above for high-res image gallery

It looks like Harley-Davidson isn't the only bike company dabbling in the dark arts these days. Victory Motorcycles has pulled the sheets off of its new High-Ball at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in New York. The bike looks like it's been upended and dipped in a vat of matte black paint with just a few exceptions. The tank wears a flat-white cove with matching wide whitewall tires. At the heart of this machine is the company's 97-horsepower 106/6 Stage 2 V-twin that cranks out 113 pound-feet of torque.

If you're looking at those ape hangars with the jaundiced eye of practicality, fear not. Victory says that the bars can be adjusted to stand straight up and down or folded back for a more comfortable riding experience. If you're looking to buy your way into the rat rod scene, there are worse ways to do it. The High-Ball carries a price tag of $13,499.

      Like this a lot. Vic has some sweet looking rides, high quality, and run decently fast. The ride is excellent on all the models.

      I like it as well, but they're really coming in on the tail end of the trend. This will be hideous in 5 years.

      I like it! I'm not a huge fan of flat black, but it looks really nice on this. Along with the whitewall tires, it has a really clean vintage, but modern look.

      Oh yeah, and that's quite a bit of torque. :D Should be a fun ride.

      I like how they put WAY more effort into this bike than H-D seemed to with their Blackline (or whatever it is called) series. This isn't just a different set of handlebars and different pipes. They really put in the effort to style it up with fat whitewalls and a murdered-out paint scheme.
