    My guess on the price was $10,999. Glad it came in under that. Not what I was expecting performance wise. I hope Lloyd has some goodies coming for it soon.

    Was enthused that more of the 156 would show up to the dance. Looks like a Scout with a Vee on the tank. And the power is way under what I thought...what happened to 120?????
    And would someone please tell Ma Vic that there is another foot position beside >Forward< and a seat height over 26"?????
    Yawn.

    Yeah...disappointing. Maybe this is the entry level bike. I was hopeful for something more aggressive.

    When did 100 horsepower become "entry level?"

    No idea?????

    Especially since it will literally run away from ANY other STOCK Victory in a straight line, around a corner and under braking.

    No one here has ridden it except for you and almost no one responding to these threads has ridden a Scout beyond maybe a demo ride and even then it's likely it wasn't ridden "correctly". I recall talking to someone who came off a Scout demo riding right behind me who commented how "slow" the bike was and wanted to know why he couldn't keep up with me? He assumed there was something wrong with his bike. I asked him what RPM he was shifting at and he didn't know (no tach on the Scout unless you change the mode on the speedo). He said, "around the same RPM I shift my Harley at". So, he was leaving 4000 RPM and more than half the torque curve on the table......

    When Vic claimed they were going to be a performance leader.

    Or did I missunderstand all the performance hype and Vic meant to say entry level bike?

    Playing devil's advocate, what other sub $11K American Made cruiser has more HP or better yet, better power to weight ratio?

    That has nothing to do with "entry-level."

    The Octane is not an "entry level" bike. It might be an "introductory-level" bike to the Victory line-up, but I pose the question as to how you are knocking Vic for making their cheapest bike 104 horsepower?!

    Demo rode a scout and it was a blast. Victory did hype this bike up how much more would this bike cost out of the factory pushing 120hp? Wouldn't that attract more sport bike riders?

    Again, I guess I missed the, "We barely exceed some similar water cooled cruisers with this new platform." Campaign.

    Don't get me wrong, I think it will sell very well, but they have underwhelmed ME, both in quality and performance.

    Hopefully, they scale the water cooled Vtwin for the Heavy weights with their next new release. Simple for me, they up the game or I buy a low mile used bike and spend the extra customizing it.

    I spent more than a decade approaching HD that way and was hoping for more substance behind the hype with Vic.

    This is, as someone else said, a decently designed engine mated to a conference room full of marketing and accounting room voices for final product.

    Show me where I knocked them for those combinations of factors. I wasn't looking for a $10k ish bike, and price wasn't a limiting factor for me.

    Thanks for using quotes though. Did "introductory-level" come from a talking points paper?

    Okay, serious question: If you (Vic) are playing poker with another dude that you don't want to loose to (HD), would you show your hand when the first card hits the table, or wait until the river?

    We all know that Polaris and HD are able to create HUGE powered motors, but they still have to adhere to the EPA, general public tastes, what the competition is doing, etc.

    Don't act like I am a corp shill.

    I was using "you" as an overarching term, so my apologies.

    LOL, I have too many friends involved in marketing to call anyone a "Corporate Shill."

    But let's not pretend the Vog doesn't count Victory in its revenue stream.

    Not biased? please list all the things you would immediately replace if you owned one.
