I didn’t get what I wanted. And, yet, I’ve become okay with that. With a little perspective and some time with the Octane, which I think I like a bit better than the Scout if only for the marginally greater power and the better handling from the 18-inch front wheel, I’m coming around to see Victory’s side of the story. Even if the Octane were a fire-breathing machine, with, say, 130 or 140 rear-wheel horsepower, would it sell? Would the existing dealer network know what to do with it, and, more important, is there even a market for such a thing? If you look at V-MAX and V-Rod sales you might convince yourself that there isn’t.
