The Victory Combustion Project is a concept bike created by Zach Ness, one of the most respected custom builders in the USA.
The bike is the American version of Ignition Project, revealed earlier at EICMA. It has a half-matt grey color, high-performance parts and a sharp and simple design. Another concept using the same engine is Roland Sands’ Project 156.

The most interesting part of this concept is the 60° V-Twin engine. Victory says it is the most powerful engine in its class – it is liquid-cooled and has four valves/cylinders. To be the strongest, it should have over 123 horsepower (Harley-Davidson V-Rod’s figure).
Other performance elements are the “Torque Box” air cleaner, the MagnaFlow exhaust, Brembo radial brake calipers and Goodridge brake lines.
Zach Ness is the grandson of Arlen Ness and grew up in a custom-builder family. When his father and grandfather signed the first deal with Victory, Zach was only 12. “This platform is awesome – loads of power and an insane engine sound. The inspiration for the bike came fully from the throttle – I wanted to create a bike that was fast –, light and ready to attack the next green light”, says Arlen Ness.
The Combustion Project is the last of the three problems based on the same platform – a platform that could lead to a production model next year.
