The new model introduced by Victory Motorcycle’s at Daytona Bike Week 2016 will appear on of Velocity’s Car Fix, the essential “how to” automotive series that features the talented dynamic duo of Lou Santiago and Jared Zimmerman.
Enjoying the descriptive title of 'World Record holding 2017 Victory Octane' after earning the title for the Longest Burnout, this ‘Musclebike’ will be seen on the small screen Saturday, April 30, at 10 AM CT / 11 AM ET, in the season premiere of the automotive series.
In each episode of ‘Car Fix’ Santiago and Zimmerman take on special automotive projects including modifications, upgrades and repairs using high-end performance and aftermarket products that car junkies can’t wait to get their hands on.
For riding enthusiasts looking for the motorcycle connection, the premiere will see the guys take a look at what makes the Victory Octane a ‘Modern American Musclebike’. Is it the sharp-edge styling, the race-bred V-twin engine producing 104 horsepower and 76 foot-pounds of tire-shredding torque, or the stiff and solid chassis that delivers outstanding power to weight performance in the class?
Not to spoil the episode, something tells us the answer is all of the above.
An interesting outcome in the show, Zimmerman will customizes an Octane and put it up against Santiago's Mustang GT. Who will win in the quarter mile?
‘Car Fix’, which premieres on Velocity at 10 AM (CT) on April 30 and will encore at 10 AM (CT) on May 1, is produced for the network by Brenton Productions. Learn more about Victory Motorcycles at VictoryMotorcycles.com or follow on Twitter and Facebook.
“Vehicle enthusiasts are familiar with the musclecar formula: take a big motor, shove it into a lightweight chassis, then delete anything that does not contribute to performance – the Victory Octane is the two-wheeled expression of that concept,” says Alex Hultgren, Director of Marketing for Victory Motorcycles. “The guys at ‘Car Fix’ couldn’t have found a better challenger to go up against Lou’s Mustang.”
