• The #93 Octane will be unveiled at the Sturgis Rally
  • Aaron Colton has been building it in his garage
  • Says it’s “shaping up to be a stallion”

Aaron Colton is one of the most recognised Street Freestyle riders in the world, but he’s also a dab hand in the garage too.

Which is why he’s been customising a Victory Octane ahead of the Sturgis Rally in South Dakota next month, where he plans to let rip in front of the thousands of bikers attending the week-long rally.

He’s built the #93Octane in his home garage and says it’s shaping up to be a stallion: “Why am I building this? I’m building it because I want a bike that puts the power to the ground and I can shred on, “ he enthuses. “The build on the #93Octane is going to be pretty cut and dry, it’s not going to have a lot of thrills, but the components are going to be second-to-none and we’re changing the ergonomics more to the sport side of things. Once this bike is done there’s going to be quite a few playgrounds it’s going to be ready for.”

Full details and hi res images will be available on the media site next week.

ABOUT AARON COLTON
Aaron Colton is the riders’ rider. Any fans of Street Bike Freestyle will know the name. A prodigy on two wheels since he first stepped onto the scene with freakish talent, a large set of balls and taste of flamboyance as a fourteen year old. Colton is the Red Bull darling of stunt supremacy. The king of no-handed wheelies, a plethora of tricks on two wheels (and often one), abuser of rear wheel rubber, drift dancer, a showman, competitor and overall a splendidly amiable guy. He’s gained a broad respect throughout all disciplines of motorcycling competing in Street Freestyle, AMA Pro Road Racing, AMA Pro Flat Track, WORCS Off-Road Races as well as Regional Supermoto and Motorcross Races. His demo program spans across the United States with 25+ activations and an additional 3+ activation tours outside the Continental U.S. each year. As a versatile athlete, Aaron has managed to evolved his career as one of the most recognised Street Freestyle riders in the world.
