Victory teases new 1200cc Octane

Watercooled bike promises Diavelstyle performance


THIS teaser video gives the first glimpse of the new water-cooled Victory model that will be launched next month.

Already previewed in the form of the Project 156 Pikes Peak race bike, the Ignition concept and the Combustion concept during the last year, the new model will go under the name ‘Octane’.

From the glimpses of the bike in the teaser video, the overall style looks fairly close to that of the Combustion concept, but with a longer rear fender and, presumably, much more silencing.

We understand that the new bike, which has a 1200cc water-cooled engine that’s derived from the bottom end of the Indian Scout motor but with new cylinders and heads for much more power, will use a cast aluminium chassis just like the one on the Combustion.

In terms of performance, Victory has already made bold statements that it will have the highest performance in its class. Given that the 160bhp Ducati Diavel is arguably in the same league, that’s a high bar to set.

All will be revealed on 19th February.
