The 2017 Victory Octane is the future of the American cruiser segment, at least if Polaris has anything to say about it. Gone are the days of the same old designs paired with the same old motors. Cruisers can be tough and modern and American, and Victory is pushing their chips all in.
We’ve been waiting for this bike for a long time. Harley-Davidson has long had a stranglehold on the cruiser market and, for too long, competitors like Victory seemed all too happy to try and copy them and take The Motor Company’s table scraps when they could.
