Victory itself was responsible for recent months to maintain very high expectations or hype as they call it now in an Octane victory at the end is not as much as expected at first. Yes, it is the first liquid-cooled propellant victory, but to be at the heart of a muscle-bike as defined do not speak both its 1200 cc and 104 HP at 8000 RPM. Comparison with Ducati and Yamaha XDiavel v-Max paled.
Victory Motorcycles also plays a round of price, very attractive compared to the competition. In Spain, it will be available from 13,200 Euros with a guarantee highlight 5 years. There is few motorcycles custom with these advantages for this price.
The most aggressive victory
The V-Twin engine to 60 with 4 valves per cylinder and dual overhead camshafts is derived from the unit equipped with the victory project 156 who participated in the rise of Pikes Peak in Colorado at 2015. It has 103 Nm of torque to the 6.00o system and a speed of 6 optimized, which accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in about 4 seconds and does the quarter mile in 12 seconds.
Victory Octane can be measured with typical muscle cars accelerate through work to lighten the weight on the scale to give 243 pounds dry. After all, the name ‘Octane’ is quite appropriate given that the prototypes that were called advance ignition and combustion.
Everything is designed to provide superior against the custom of the competition, as performance specially profiled Type bullet fairing, a delayed and low handlebar that provides a unique driving Postua, or the height of the seat car only 658 mm from the ground.
The victory of rogue
This improved performance is complemented by a very aggressive look, with décor in grey steel Super Mate, chassis dark lightweight aluminum, the strongest central column, smoked dome at the front… And if this is wrong as this is the standard always you extensive customization parts catalog.
Custom liquid cooling
The frame is complemented by 41 mm fork, dual rear shock with only 76 mm of travel; disc brake on the two axes of 298 mm, 2 pistons and ABS as standard; aluminum front wheel 18 inch, rear 17 and 10 radios or Kenda Cruiser tires. The deposit is quite skinny, with only 11.7 liters. What is clear is that the Indian victory duo formed by Polaris can resist Harley-Davidson on several fronts with these new models. Currently Milwaukee is not responding to these proposals and their lack of new ‘real’ is obvious.
