OCTANE
“We wanted to bring the American motorcycle into the 21st century. Victory doesn’t have any long history or legacy —we are a new brand and we can go wherever we want to go. We want to be modern, and bold, and set our own trends.”
— Mike Song, Victory Senior Industrial Designer

IGNITION
“This is a real performance engine, with four-valve heads, overhead cams and a lot of torque. And the engine revs much higher, like a sportbike.” —Urs Erbacher

PROJECT 156
“This bike is unapologetic. It’s not trying to be anything besides what it is—a strippedto-the-bone roadrace bike. You just go out and ride it.” —Roland Sands

COMBUSTION
“It’s not like any other American V-twin I’ve ever heard. It sounds like a Pro Stock motorcycle. It sounds pissed off. It sounds mean.” —Zack Ness

Power To Burn
Liquid-cooled with 4-valve heads and dual-overhead cams, Octane’s 60-degree V-twin makes more horsepower than any Victory ever built—104 horsepower and 76 foot-pounds of tire-shredding torque. Geared for quick acceleration, Octane sprints down the quarter-mile in 12 seconds and rushes from 0-60 mph in under four seconds. With the heart of a Pikes Peak International Hill Climb racer, Octane has power to burn.

Built to Thrill
Raw power is only half of the musclebike equation. You also need a solid chassis that can transmit all that power to the pavement and hold a tight line when bent into a corner. Octane’s solid-mounted powertrain connects cast-aluminum front and rear frame sections, with twin tubular-steel backbones for added rigidity. Dual-rate springs at both ends deliver solid feedback over any type of pavement, and oversized, 298mm disc brakes are ready for those rare occasions when you want to shed speed...

The loudest Bagger in the industry returns in 2016 with a 200-watt 10-speaker audio system, 21” billet front wheel, custom stealth paint, LED lights and a new lower price.

Minneapolis — February 12, 2016 — Victory Motorcycles announces the return of the Magnum X-1 – the loudest Victory Bagger ever built, designed for serious music and motorcycle fans. As the 2015 model quickly sold out upon its introduction last year, the new 2016 Magnum X-1 Stealth Edition hits the scene powered by a 200-watt 10-speaker surround sound audio system. Loaded with custom features such as billet wheels, a monochrome paint scheme featuring color-matched components and LED lighting, plus a MSRP that’s $1,000 lower than last year. Availability is limited, with dealers first getting the new model starting in February.

STEALTH GRAY PAINT. The Magnum X-1’s paint job reflects the latest trend with a Stealth Gray suede monochrome style featuring color-matched hinges, fender fillers, lower frame covers, dash, speaker grills and headlight bezel. This may be the only motorcycle on the market that attracts custom fans and concert groupies.

SOUND IS NO BARRIER. The Magnum X-1, our loudest bike ever, puts you center stage as you roll down the road. Trips are measured in both miles and decibels. Twist the throttle and plug into 200 watts blasting through two 6×9 woofers and two tweeters in the saddlebags, as well as two 5.25-inch mid-bass speakers, two 2.5-inch mid-ranges and two more tweeters in the front fairing. The audio system fully integrates into any Bluetooth capable device, and features an informational window for input and song selection.

“You’re just scared standing next to this thing,” says Senior Engineer of Powertrain Design, Alex Hopperman.

The lead-up to the debut of the Octane is steadily marching on. This time the Powertrain Design engineer offers a few moments of his thoughts on the Octane.

Sounds like this bike is going to have some big expectations to live up to.
