Victory Octane To Star In New Velocity’s “Car Fix” TV Show

1victory-octaneJared-Zimmerman-Lou-SantiagoThe 2017 Victory Motorcycles® Octane®  is set to make its television debut Saturday, April 30, at 10 AM CT / 11 AM ET, in the season premiere of Velocity’s Car Fix http://www.velocity.com/tv-shows/car-fix/ the essential “how to” automotive series that features the talented dynamic duo of Lou Santiago and Jared Zimmerman.

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.

In this 30-minute “Car Fix” episode, the guys take a look at what makes the Victory Octane a Modern American Musclebike – the sharp-edge styling, the race-bred V-twin engine producing 104 horsepower and 76 foot-pounds of tire-shredding torque, and the stiff and solid chassis that delivers outstanding power to weight performance in the class. Zimmerman then customizes an Octane and puts it up against Santiago’s Mustang GT. Who will win in the quarter mile?

“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.” “Car Fix”, which premieres on Velocity at 10 AM (CT) on April 30 and will encore at 10 AM (CT) on May 1.

    the tattooed bearded arms folded pose is wearing as thin as the big wheeled baggers.

    That mini fairing looks good with the tank lines, good angle.

    Will they try and turn it back into an Indian Scout. Should be a short episode where the fat beared one runs down to the Indian dealership and buys a Scout badge while the other guy yanks the Victory badge off the “Octane.” Some double sided tape and voila!

    Octane needs to be in a series like the old Bronson show, although the show would probably be god awful.

    Will take a look
    Can’t be as bad or much worst
    than most of the shows of its ilk

    This is actually one of the better how to car shows. They do not have the bs “gotta do a full resto in one week” time schedules but actually show the home garage guy how to do stuff.

    Correct in that these guys actually work on their own stuff as well as customers gear…not outrageous builds with unlimited budgets…stuff most guys can do in the garage whilst imparting some hotrodding knowledge..much more realistic a show…not everything has fuel injection in these guys eyes..

    The Velocity channel is programed as one of my “favorites” channels … I will take a look at this and tell you what I think.

    Not a bad episode and they got the almost stock bike to turn some high 12’s. That platform has some real long term potential with the understressed motor and modular chassis.

    Polaris really needs an R version of this platform….figure out a do-able mod for some mids, better suspension and 120hp.

    Oh, and unlike so many car/ bike shows, those two guys seem like they would be fun to have a few cold ones with.
