Motorcycle enthusiasts have enjoyed custom bikes built from the Octane from industry icons like Zach Ness, Aaron Colton and Rick Fairless. Now, over 20 Victory dealers from around the world have created their own interpretations of the light, fast and affordable Octane.
Aside from beautiful looking motorcycles, every day riders have an opportunity to ride away with their very own Octane with this latest bike-building contest.
Dealers participating in Operation Octane were asked to utilize a 2017 Victory Octane, however their build inspirations and themes were up to them. There’ll be four winners, a North American champion, North American runner-up, International champion and International runner-up. Dealers will compete for prizes including a 1st place of $5,000 and inclusion in a print ad, and a 2nd place of $3,000. The four winning dealers will be determined by the voting public.
Fans of Victory Motorcycles are invited to vote for their favorite bike online until November 21st. The very act of voting earns a shot at winning a free 2017 Victory Octane, $3,000 worth of Victory Octane parts, garments and accessories, plus a trip to meet and customize their awarded Octane with TV’s Bryan Fuller and his Fuller Moto design shop.
The latest Octanes come in four flavors, Gloss Black priced at $9,999, Matte Super Steel Gray priced at $10,499, Matte Pearl White priced at $10,499 and Gloss Black with Graphics with a sticker price of $10,499.
Every flavor of Octane features a high revving liquid-cooled 60-degree V-Twin with four-valve heads and dual-overhead cams that makes 104 horsepower and 76 foot-pounds of tire-shredding torque. While it has the heart of a Pikes Peak International Hill Climb racer and a 0-60 mph time that makes it the quickest Victory ever produced, there’s also a stiff and lightweight cast-aluminum frame, sharp steering geometry, a tight wheelbase and 32 degrees of lean angle.
“It has been incredible to see what Victory Octane owners have done with their motorcycles, and the broad guidelines we’ve established for this contest are sure to bring out some equally amazing interpretations of the bike,” says Nate Secor, Manager of Marketing, Victory Motorcycles.
