Victory motorcycles have finally revealed the new Project 156 motorcycle. The Project 156 will be used to race the famous Pikes Peak International Hillclimb.
For the Project 165, Victory teamed up with Roland Sands and they seem to have done a hell of a job.
Victory ‘s general manager Rod Krois, states that: “We have an intense focus at Victory Motorcycles to prove the performance of our vehicles. The Project 156 motorcycle is a hand-built road-racing bike with a prototype Victory motor developed at Victory’s Minnesota research and development facility. This liquid-cooled engine represents the future performance of the Victory brand. It features twin intake 67mm throttles with downdraft runners for maximum power and torque as well as a performance valve-train including intake and exhaust valves made of titanium to allow for maximum engine speed.
Polaris who is also owning the Indian brand seems to guide Victory more and more in to racing and performance machines. Not long ago, Victory took everyone by surprise and announced that they will participate in the Electric TT.
It would be also interesting to see a street version derived from the Project 156.
