After two very ambiguous video teasers, fans can now have a clearer picture of the upcoming and new Victory Octane dragster model as its design patents have leaked online. These leaked patents shows how the bike will possibly look like when it is finally launched on February 19.
As previously reported, the new Victory Octane will feature Victory’s new DOHC 1,200cc V-twin engine with quad-valves per cylinder, The mill was previewed before in the brand’s Project 156 Pikes Peak racer and more recently in the Victory Ignition concept.
Based on the drawings, we can see that the Octane will have the same cast aluminium frame as the Ignition concept. Reports further indicated that Greg Brew, who is Victory’s own design chief, penned the exterior. Based o that, there are almost no doubts about the bike’s final outlooks.
Besides that, the drawings also show that the new Victory 1,200cc mill shares an identical bottom end with the Indian Scout model’s 1,133cc V-twin mill primed. Whilst it stands as the smallest engine ever produced by Victory, it promises to be the brand’s most powerful one ever.
Victory declined on revealing exact power figures, but the most recent teaser video indicates the mill’s race car-line soundtrack, suggesting it will rival against the likes of the Harley-Davidson V-Rod and Ducati XDiavel.
More details will be available as soon as the Victory Octane debuts officially later this month.
