Victory Motorcycles revealed the final installment in their 1200cc concept series at the International Motorcycle Show in New York City. This concept, called “Combustion,” is powered by the production version of the engine that made its debut last month at EICMA in Milan. It was built by Zach Ness of Arlen Ness Motorcycles in Dublin, California.
“Our family has a long-standing relationship with Victory Motorcycles customizing many Victory production bikes in the past,” says Zach Ness, third generation custom builder and grandson of the “Godfather of Customs,” Arlen Ness. “It’s always fun to look into the future – so to have the trust of Victory to create a more conceptual bike has been great. Also, as one of the first to ride this new engine it absolutely RIPS!”
This Ness concept follows the Milan, Italy EICMA reveal of a concept bike built by Urs Erbacher of Switzerland. His concept bike known as “Ignition” took the first pre-production engine and wrapped it in an aggressive sport-bike inspired stance intended to satisfy needs of riders.
Both the Ignition Concept and the Combustion Concept are propelled by production-intent engines that will power a new model Victory Motorcycle to be revealed in 2016. The Engine is a 1200cc liquid cooled 60 degree V-Twin design with four valves per cylinder that will deliver the kind of engine performance enthusiast riders find exhilarating.
