S&S Cycle News


La Crosse, WI (January 03, 2008) — S&S Cycle® announces a three year extension to its agreement with Polaris Industries, Victory Motorcycles.

Through this extended agreement, S&S will maintain its status as the exclusive provider of performance aftermarket engine components for the Victory Motorcycle line.

Over the last few years, S&S has built a 106ci Hot Set Up™ Kit for Victory® motorcycles that will make close to 40-percent more horsepower and over 20-percent more torque than the stock engine. The kit consists of a flywheel assembly, cams, valve springs, an S&S high flow air cleaner and a downloadable tune file for the fuel injection. Additionally, S&S offers the high flow air cleaner along with its downloadable tune file—capable of about a 10-percent gain in performance.


Michael Scaletta, Director of Business Development said “The three year extension is going to benefit both companies as well as our loyal customers; I am very excited about some of the new products we are working on.” Scaletta continued, “This year will be a big one for both Polaris Victory and S&S, with the release of the new Vision and S&S celebrating its 50th anniversary; it is a thrilling time to be in the motorcycle industry!”

S&S will still maintain its Victory Dealer Direct distribution strategy. New and upcoming components include a chromed forged primary cover, new exhaust offerings, and airbox compatibility with 2008 model year motorcycles. S&S Research and Innovation engineers are enjoying their development time on the Victory engine and a number of “you-can’t-see this” components have been prototyped. While no plans to bring these items to market have been announced yet, there are some very fast Victory development bikes at S&S with a rather lumpy idle and a deep sound from their exhaust pipes.

More Victory/S&S news comes on the heels of this agreement and centers on the 106ci Hot Set Up Kit. First, S&S is pleased to announce a drop in. The MSRP to $2500, making the kit much more desirable for all 100ci Victory owners. Second, S&S now offers installation service of the Hot Set Up Kit in the La Crosse, Wisconsin Remanufacturing Facility. Any Victory dealer can arrange to pull a customer’s engine out, ship it to S&S and have the 106ci kit installed.


In late February of 2008, the S&S dealer website will link to a new website designated Freedom Performance Tuner that will have an area dedicated to downloadable Victory tune files. As new tune files for various exhaust systems are developed, they will be made available to Victory dealers installing the 106 kit or the high flow billet airbox kit—including the billet airbox being designed for 2008 models.
