    The lead-up to the Octane release is marching right along. We are just over two and a half weeks away from the Feb 19th release date and here is another video. This time Zach Ness, who was responsible for the Combustion Concept bike is talking about the sound of the engine. According to him it sounds like a "crate engine out of a damn race car."

    The marketing seems to point to power, noise, and grit. Who is ready to see what Vic has coming?

    Oh are you thinking of buying one? I think the bike he unveiled as the concept will be the bike. Although I honestly liked one of the other designs. Either way it should be a lot of new things rolling out from Victory.

    One of my all time favorite old school Aussie muscle bikes was the kwaka Z 1000...

    Zacks build captured the essence of that classic muscle cruiser...

    Was I looking at changing up from my highball?

    No...

    Do I like my air cooled v twins??

    Yes sir!!!

    But man o man I'm falling in love with this concept machine and I'll make sure I'm one of the first to test ride it...

    If it goes like it looks then it's looking very very very tempting!

    Well keep us posted if you get one. If it runs like it sounds then Victory definitely hit a home run!!

    Say it ain't so, I can't beleive your considering letting the highball go! You must really like the sound of the bike.

    Zake is probably talking about his Concept bike with his short custom pipes ,not the new Victory Octane bike.

    It's the same engine and I'm sure he tried multiple exhausts while doing the build.

    They definitely have piqued my interest, but based on the speculation at the local dealer it's going to be too small for this 6'2" rider.

    Believe you me it will have to be freaken special machine for me to sell the HB....

    Love the engine but for me its more the look of Zack's build!!!

    Does anyone know how tall Zack Ness is?

    Looking at the scale of some of the pics the combustion looks a fair bit larger than the scout???

    I can't wait to ride it...

    Been to his shop in California but didn't get to meet him. I would guess 5"9 is his height but definitely not sure, I may be totally wrong but tv has a way of making folks look taller imo.

    I met Zack at the Hot Bike Tour.
    He's definitely no taller than 5'10" and I'm guessing 5'8" tall.

    The pipes in the video are not 50 state legal.
