Judging from the information on the Victory website, the appearance of the motorcycle with 1200 cc liquid propellant in the lineup is in the offing. Moreover, the date of presentation of the Victory Octane is called – 19.02.2016.
Just three seconds of the video-clip has been spent to show fragments of the novelty, but it can be assumed that the design of the bike will be similar to the concepts presented earlier. In November last year at the EICMA Motor Show in Milan was presented a new V-engine cylinders with the collapse of 60º. 1200 cc engine will be similar (and someone said – identical) to power unit Indian Scout (Victory and Indian are subsidiaries of Polaris). At the heart of these motors is a model developed for the prototype of Project 156 that participated in last year’s Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb.
Speaking of design, there is no doubt that the Octane will take the best of the Victory Ignition concept, developed by the Swiss Urs Erbacher and Victory Combustion, in the construction of which was involved Zach Ness. Both bikes have many similarities, such as the engine, fuel tank, frame and swingarm. Octane is to become one of the most powerful motorcycles in their segment, and if you remember the Ducati Diavel with its 140 hp at its peak, it becomes clear what features you can expect from this novelty.
