When the Octane first launched last year, they brought a handful of us out to Orlando Speed World to test it out. I realized that first time throwing a leg over it, that the bike had a ton of potential. As a cruiser, it was torquey and exciting straight off the line, putting a big old smile on my face every time I would twist the throttle. But being the speed hungry guy I am, I would scrape the hell out of the pegs on just about every turn that I really threw into. For cruising the highways and byways, the Octane is an awesome machine. But when I was out on the track, Ms. Sharker was the bike I wanted.

The folks over at Victory Motorcycles Taiwan call this a mixture of scrambler and tracker style, but honestly, I'm glad that I don't see more of the scrambler style reflected here. To me, this is a cross between a sport bike, a cruiser and a tracker.

With Ohlins Suspension front and rear, SC Project Exhaust, and the high rear set foot controls located back at the start of the swingarm, this Victory looks more ready to drag a knee on the track then go scrambling down a fire road.

The suede and leather on the seat work with the matte/ gold/ glossy paint job on the rest of the bike, and that gold detail just makes the look of the Ohlins pop that much more.
