  • Test ride Octane at Victory dealerships 
  • Priced from €12,950
  • Put all of Victory’s ‘Modern American Muscle’ range to the test

Victory dealerships in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) now have the new Victory Octane in stock.

Bikers now have the opportunity to put the firm’s mantra of ‘Modern American Muscle’ to the test by throwing their leg over Octane (and any of Victory’s other American V-Twin motorcycles) at their local dealership.

Bookings can be made online or by calling the dealership directly. There are also specially organised Demo Tour test-ride events taking place over the coming months in various countries (listed below).

Octane is a 1200cc ‘musclebike’ with a V-Twin engine that was developed from the race engine used in the Project 156 prototype bike at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) in 2015. It has been praised for its engine character and it’s sharp handling.

With 103 horsepower, Octane achieves 0-60mph in less than 4 seconds and runs a quarter mile dragstrip in just 10 seconds. It also has 32° of lean angle, delivering agility previously unseen in an American V-twin motorcycle.

An Octane was also used to set a new Guinness World Record for the world’s longest burnout, ridden by stunt rider Joe Dryden who smoked the rear tyre over 2.23 miles.

With a price starting at just €12,950 Octane runs in a class of its own.

Victory’s complete 2016 model year brochure is now available in dealerships or it can be downloaded from the Victory Motorcycles website. Test rides can be booked online too.

Here is the schedule of events taking place in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) region over the coming months.
