Victory plans Gunner motorcycle for 2015

Victory is planning a Gunner bobber motorcycle named after Hollywood actor Ronald Lee Ermey who played Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket, which earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

The Gunner could have been a great competitor for Harley’s new Street mid-weight bike, but it will be a pared-down bobber, powered by the same 1731cc (106cuii) V-twin engine found in all the Victory Motorcycles.

Ermey is the face of Victory Motorcycles in US advertising and could be expected to be in ads when the bike is released in 2015.
