We rarely report on other magazine's happenings, but this is too exciting to pass up. We're slightly envious of friend and Cycle World Road Test Editor Don Canet.

You should already know about this bike from our first article following the announcement (link above), but the team has decided to start with a series of teasers that slowly give out more and more information. Here's the first in probably many teasers to follow.

Named Project 156, no full pics of the bike have been released just yet. The Pikes Peak finish line is over 14,000 feet over sea level and this makes for some interesting tuning challenges as the bikes reach the top of the mountain. Watch as Victory Motorcycles engineers put the Project 156 engine through it's paces on the dyno.
