Project 156 got its name from the 156 turns of the Pike Peak International Hill Climb, a race that will also see the debut of this bike later this year. The entire endeavor is even more ambitious because, save for some track testing, the Race to the Clouds will be the ultimate proving ground for the all-American machine.

The bike is a hand-built piece of two-wheeled technology and is centered on a completely new prototype engine Victory engineered. A true road racing bike, Project 156 was stripped of all unnecessary bulk and looks quite menacing with all the bits and parts showing off.

Minimalist carbon fiber bodywork elements have been installed, but they are restricted to the tank and airbox cover, side panels and the tail section. The rest is proudly displayed, and we can see the tubular frame, the engine in all its glory, and the three radiator units.Still no word on displacement and horsepower
On the tech side, however, Victory is not too eager to let us know more. No displacement and no other tech specs have been revealed for the Project 156 engine, so we guess we'll have to wait some more until new info surfaces.

The only tech feature mentioned is the dual downdraft 67mm throttle bodies. We can only hope that Victory will release some tech specs before the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb race that will take place on June 28th. We know that the aim is very his, but cannot help wondering "what if"...
