Victory Motorcycles isn’t really the type to release attention-grabbing teaser photos, but on the rare occasions that it does, the American motorcycle manufacturer makes sure that it’s able to convey the right amount of “teasing” attached to these images.

The company’s release of the “Project 156: Race to the Clouds” teaser is a pretty good example of that.

Apparently, Victory Motorcycle’s got something big planned for the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb that’s scheduled on June 28, 2015 at Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Without outwardly announcing as much, Victory Motorcycle definitely left a strong hint of its plan in the teaser, which includes “Race to the Clouds” in a huge, red Speed Racer-type font. Just below that is an illustration of the Colorado Mountains, a clear indication that Victory Racing, the company’s racing division, is preparing something in time for Pikes Peak.

So what exactly is that “something”? That’s the part that’s unclear, although a silhouette of a sports bike on the teaser photo hints at a possible custom project that Victory could unveil at the highly recognized event. I’ve been staring at that silhouette for a couple of hours now and I still can’t make out exactly what model the company’s planning to show.

Considering that Victory is mostly known for its all-world cruisers, the fact that a sports bike is being shown in the image speaks volumes on how clueless I am about this mysterious machine. Then again, that’s probably what Victory was going for when it decided to release the photo.

It wants to get us all excited to see what this Project 156 is all about. On that note, I have to give Victory a lot of credit. Job well done on the teaser image, fellas.

I can’t, for the life of me, figure out what it is.

Why it matters

The 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is still a few months away, but there’s nothing wrong with getting a jump on the anticipation leading up to the highly anticipated event.

Victory’s definitely doing its part in that regard. I’ve already touched on various elements of the teaser photo and trying to come up with hints on what Project 156 actually is. But I saved the most important part of the teaser for this section.

What exactly is Project 156?

Despite the myriad of events and activities Victory has planned for the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, the American motorcycle manufacturer is being particularly coy about what “Project 156” really is. All I have so far is a carefully constructed message the company issued on its Facebook page, telling us to “stay tuned as we unleash the fury.”

There’s really not much information after that, although I have to admit that I actually want
to be kept in the dark about what Project 156 is until Victory decides to announce what it’s all about. There’s just something about the amount of secrecy Victory is obviously
working really hard to keep.

If I were to guess, I think Project 156 will be a new sports bike that the company built specifically to conquer the treacherous race course. I can’t wait to see what it is!

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
