Victory's slick new Octane

The long-awaited Octane is here.

Victory states that the Octane is like an American muscle car, in that it's light, fast, and affordable. This middle-weight Victory cruiser has a low seat height at 26.9 inches, and and the forward pegs give it a classic riding position. But the 104hp, the fairly short gearing, and the six-speed tranny give it performance closer to a Harley V-Rod than a 1200 Sportster.

Some specs: around 540lbs dry weight, 1179cc, 104hp, front tire 130/70-18, rear tire 160/70-17, 29 degrees/5.1" rake and trail, 5.1" fork travel, 3.0 twin rear shock travel, 6-speed transmission, 3.4gal tank.

Magazine test riders loved the Octane, calling the engine "sweet", pulling strongly thru the gears and hitting 100mph quickly.

Every Octane comes with a limited edition hat and t-shirt. Come on in and check out the latest muscley cruiser from Victory, priced to sell at $10,499.
