Starting with the company’s brand new Octane, this will be available in Gloss Black ($9,999), Matte Super Steel Gray ($10,499), Matte Pearl White ($10,499), and Gloss Black with Graphics ($10,499).

The back-to-basics bike follows the classic American musclecar recipe - powerful motor and lightweight chassis. No fancy ABS is offered on the Octane, but there’s a new Stage 2 Kit that brings a performance air intake and 2-1 exhaust system to provide 10 percent more power and 5% more torque.

Inspired by the original bobbers built by returning WWII vets, the Victory Gunner is powered by a 106 cu-in Freedom V-Twin that cranks 110 lb-ft (150 Nm) of torque. The bike is available in Suede Titanium Metallic ($13,499) or Suede Sagebrush Green Metallic ($13,899).

The stripped-down speed demon Victory High-Ball impresses through two new colors for 2017 - Suede Black with black-wall tires ($13,499) or Suede Nuclear Sunset Orange nicely matched with white-wall tires ($13,749).

Moving to Victory’s most aggressive cruiser, the Hammer S only comes in Gloss Black with White Racing Stripes ($15,599) and comes with dual front disc brakes, burly inverted fork, extra-wide rear tire and a neat rear cowl with a hidden passenger pad.

The sleek Victory Vegas comes with a color-matched frame, contrast-cut 21-inch front rim, pullback handlebars, slash-cut mufflers, flush-mounted LED taillight and blacked-out decals. The model is only available in Sunset Red ($13,999) with a matching frame.

For all black-lovers, the Vegas 8-Ball is the same as the model above, but everything except the rims, fork and bolts is either gloss or matte black. This dark model is available at $12,999.

The Magnum muscle bagger is fitted with a 21-inch front rim, LED headlight, Bluetooth-enabled audio system with 6 speakers, ABS and can be had in three awesome colors - Gloss Black with graphics ($22,599), Habanero Inferno Orange with graphics ($23,099) and Indy Red Pearl with graphics ($23,099). Also, $24,499 can bring you the Magnum X-1 limited edition that has custom features like contrast-cut billet rims, special Pearl White with Platinum overlay and Electric Red pinstriping, as well as a 200-watt ten-speaker surround sound system.

More standard features can now be found on the Victory Cross Country, including ABS, cruise control, and Bluetooth-enabled audio system, while a Stage 2 Kit adds S&S cams, high-flow intake and performance exhaust system to boost the power by 20% and torque by 10%. The 2017 Cross Country is available in Gloss Black ($19,499), Suede White Frost ($19,999), Suede Nuclear Sunset Orange ($19,999) and Sunset Red ($19,999).

If you’re more like Swiss adventurer Urs “Grizzly” Pedraita and need a bike to go around the world, the 2017 Victory Cross Country Tour comes with 41.1 gallons of storage capacity, 200W audio system, ABS, LED lighting, air-adjustable rear suspension as well as Victory’s Comfort Control System that channels upper and lower wind to increase comfort. It is available in Gloss Black ($21,999), Gloss Blue Fire ($22,499) or Two-tone Turbo Silver and Black ($22,999).

The futuristic-styled Vision Tour comes with a powered windshield, ABS, cruise control as well as heated seat and grips. It is available in only two colors, namely Gloss Black ($21,099) and Gloss Blue Fire ($22,099).

Finally, the electric 2016 Empulse (yes, Victory strangely labeled the model as 2016) has a 10.4 kWh battery pack that recharges in 3,9 hours mated to an electric motor and even a six-speed automatic gearbox. It can be had in Titanium Silver with Havasu Red for $19,999.
