2017 Victory Octane www.Totalmotorcycle.com
Features and Benefits
A RACE-BRED POWERTRAIN
Developed from the Project 156 prototype that was tested at the most demanding
racing event in the world-the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb™-the
60-degree V-twin features a short-stroke just like the Project 156 racer to
allow higher engine rpm and more horsepower and a quick-revving engine more
like a sportsbike than any traditional American V-Twin. An electronically
metered 60mm throttle body feeds high-flow four-valve heads (operated by dual
overhead cams) and liquid cooling quenches the heat generated by 104 horsepower
and 99 Nm of tyre-shredding torque. Geared short for quicker acceleration,
Octane can sprint down the quarter-mile in 12 seconds and rush from 0-60 mph
in less than four seconds. With the heart of a racer, Octane has power to
Based on the Project 156 racer that competed at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb,
Octane’s 1200cc V-twin uses 4-valve heads, dual overhead cams, and liquid
cooling to make 104 horsepower. Geared for acceleration, Octane™ can
run the quarter mile in 12 seconds and hit 60 mph in under four seconds.
A STIFF AND SOLID CHASSIS
Raw power is only half of the muscle bike equation. You also need a solid
chassis that can transmit all that power to the road and also hold a tight
line when bent into a corner. Octane’s solid-mounted powertrain is a stressed
member that connects cast-aluminium front and rear frame sections, with twin
tubular-steel backbones for added reinforcement. This rigid assembly is suspended
up front by a 41mm fork equipped with dual-rate springs for solid front-end
feedback over any type of road and out back with stylish laydown shocks mounted
53 degrees off-horizontal, also equipped with preload-adjustable dual-rate
springs. Oversized, 298mm disc brakes with stainless-steel lines are at both
ends and ABS is standard. Cast aluminium, 10-spoke wheels are sized and shod
for sure-footed handling. The 18-inch front wheel wears 130/70-18 rubber,
while the 17-inch rear wheel is wrapped with a 160/70-17 tyre. A low-slung
solo saddle that rides just 658mm (25.9 inches) above the pavement, an equally
low pullback handlebar and semi-forward-set foot controls create a riding
position that looks properly badass but still provides adequate support when
the rider grabs a big handful of throttle and the bike wants to rocket off
A light and rigid cast aluminum frame transmits every horsepower directly
to the pavement. Sharp steering geometry and 32-degrees of lean angle deliver
agility previously unknown to American motorcycles. Cast aluminum 10-spoke
wheels are sized for sure-footed handling.
There are no smooth, flowing lines here. Octane is the most aggressive Victory
motorcycle ever built and the styling has been revised to suit with harder
lines, sharper creases, a more-pronounced centre spine and other details that
make Octane look leaner and meaner than any American motorcycle ever before.
The bullet cowl is standard equipment and screams to oncoming traffic that
this bike is built for speed-the only thing other riders are going to see
is the LED taillight disappearing into the distance. Chrome won’t get you
home, so there’s hardly any shiny stuff on Octane. The bulk of the chassis,
running gear and powertrain are blacked-out, and Matte Super Steel Grey bodywork
looks all business. Even the tank badge has been cast in grey instead of the
traditional Victory red to create a modern, monochrome look.
THE MODERN AMERICAN MUSCLEBIKE
Octane uses a significant number of unique parts specifically designed and
engineered to deliver the high-performance, raw-adrenaline riding experience
Victory riders demand. With a high-revving engine character and surprising
high-rpm power hit, it behaves more like a sportsbike than any American V-twin
that has come before. Fast, capable and stylish, Victory’s Octane is the answer
to a Modern American Musclebike.
LEANER AND MEANER
Octane™ is the most aggressive Victory motorcycle ever built, styled
with harder lines, sharper creases, and other subtle details that make Octane™
look leaner and meaner than any other American motorcycle. The bullet cowl
is standard equipment and proves this bike is built for speed.
CHROME WON’T GET YOU HOME
That’s why there’s so little shiny stuff on Octane™. The chassis
and powertrain are blacked-out, and Matte Super Steel Gray bodywork creates
a modern, monochrome look.
Tachometer with Shift Light
Monitor the bike’s performance and stay aware of precisely when to shift
gears with this Victory Tachometer With Shift Light. The precision tachometer
reports engine RPMs up to 10,000, and an amber light comes on to indicate
optimal shift points.
Add racing-inspired custom style and customized ergonomics. This bar is like
those on drag bikes, nearly straight across, which puts the rider in a forward,
engaged position that many riders feel can heighten the riding experience.
Stage 1 Slip-On Mufflers
The Victory Stage 1 Slip-On Muffler produces a muscular, throaty exhaust
note that properly represents the bike’s outstanding performance.
Adjustable Piggyback Shocks
Experience the ultimate in suspension performance with these shocks that
deliver fade-free damping and offer 16-way compression adjustability for custom
tuning to suit a rider’s weight and riding style.
