Custom Octane Motorcycles Cruise Into New York

Bikers in and around the ‘Big Apple’ will be the first to see the winning designs in Victory’s Operation Octane dealer custom build contest at the New York edition of the Progressive International Motorcycle Show.

Along with other major motorcycle brands, Victory Motorcycles and the Polaris Slingshot roll into the Progressive International Motorcycle Show (IMS) taking place at the Javits Center in New York from December 9th through the 11th.

As mentioned, attendees will be the first to see the winners of the Operation Octane dealer custom build contest as well as check out the Victory Cross Country Tour Swiss endurance rider Urs “Grizzly” Pedraita used this past summer to set a new world endurance record by riding 62,000 miles over six continents in 72 days. Other attractions, a custom Slingshot created by The Auto Firm, enter sweepstakes to win a Victory Magnum or a Slingshot SLR, and receive a special coupon good for a one-year extended warranty on a motorcycle purchased at participating dealers.

Rewarding biker loyalties, Victory motorcycle owners can show their key and/or a picture of their ride to receive a special gift.

Riders who don’t own a victory yet, may well be tempted. The entire line of 2017 Victory motorcycles, including the all-new Victory Octane and best-selling Victory Cross Country models, will be on display at the show alongside the new 2017 Polaris Slingshot, Slingshot SL and Slingshot SLR.

“Victory and Slingshot vehicles have both turned heads and fired up imaginations,” said Kevin Reilly, Marketing Director for Slingshot and Victory motorcycles. “Not only have the production vehicles proven to be winners, but the custom scene is seeing our vision and taking it even further, which is very exciting to see for both brands.”

Doors open 2pm Friday, 9am Saturday and 9am Sunday with ticket prices set at $20 for Adults and free for children ages 11 and under. In addition to New York City, look for Victory Motorcycles at future IMS series stops, including Washington D.C., Dallas, Cleveland, Minneapolis and Chicago.
