Victory boosts 2017 lineup

Victory boosts 2017 lineupThe press release announcing Victory’s participation to the Pikes Peak event with a naked streetbike dubbed Project 156 came as a surprise to many. Those who follow Don Canet’s Cycle World column or Roland Sands’ Instagram account may have had a heads up on the information that Victory had developed a racer out of an Indian Scout in just four months. Investigating the sportier side of the Scout’s V-twin apparently attracted plentiful publicity to Victory’s plans, and also offered the opportunity to test the engine’s limits in a competitive environment.

Soon after two concept models – the Ignition and the Combustion – completed the introductory trilogy.The works of Urs Erbacher and Zach Ness evidently contributed to the Octane’s final shape and added another two well-known names to that of Roland Sands in the new bike’s bloodline.

Pricing the the 2017 Victory Octane starts at US$10,499 (RM44,182) and the Performance package adds US$2,049 (RM8,622) to the price of the bike. No word on availability or deliveries yet, but it can be assumed that customers will be receiving their Octanes towards the later part of the year.

Victory have finally taken the wraps off their affordable new 1179cc cruiser. Dubbed the Victory Octane, the machine sports the engine first seen in Project 156, a prototype that Victory went on to race at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

The liquid-cooled V-twin is Victory’s first-ever liquid-cooled engine and in another departure from cruiser norms it utilises double-overhead-cams, four-valves per cylinder and a rev-limit that extends beyond 8000rpm.
