Top Motorcycles Monterey Car Week 2016 2/2



While Monterey Car Week’s raft of auctions are primarily about cars, there’s always a smattering of top class motorcycles going to auction. And with Mid-America auctions, America’s largest motorcycle auction house, recently becoming part of Mecum, many of Mecum’s lots featured significant motorcycles. Several of the major auction houses also included motorcycle lots in their catalogs, too.

This is not a normal auction report in that we’ve included a number of significant bikes that didn’t sell, and we’ve listed them with their high bid. While auction sell-through rates were down on the car side of things, with some spectacular successes for very special offerings, the motorcycle results were downright depressing, with many spectacular motorcycles being sold for well below estimate and many more not even attracting bids of half their estimate.

Gooding & Company sold one of the original 400 batch of the Ducati 750 SS for a world record price, but there were no other motorcycle highlights in the entire five days of auctions.

This is both good and bad news for the enthusiast because some of the better motorcycles are clearly still available for sale and the next big round of motorcycle auctions isn’t until January in Las Vegas, so that knocking you hear might be opportunity.

$40,000 (high bid) – 1949 Vincent 1000cc Rapide

Mecum Auction Page Link

This bike didn’t sell with a high bid of just US$40,000 against a conservative estimate of $70,000 to $75,000. Very original and not overly restored, and enough paperwork to validate that it’s exactly what it appears to be: a very good example of one of motorcycling’s most desirable classic motorcycles. Still available.

$40,000 (high bid) – 1912 Thor Model U Twin

Mecum Auction Page Link

A rare and highly desirable motorcycle from the annals of American motorcycle history, the 76.25 cubic inch (1250cc) Model U V-twin was marketed by Thor in period as the most powerful motorcycle yet known. The record at auction for the model was set in 2015 by Mecum Mid-America during the Las Vegas auctions when a 1914 model sold for $77,000 and a 1918 model sold for £32,200 ($49,715) in Bonhams’ Lonatti Collection sale in October, 2015. Still available.

$55,000 – 1916 Harley-Davidson 16T V-Twin Board Tracker

Mecum Auction Page Link

From the Dr. J. Craig Venter Collection and previously museum displayed.

$55,000 – 1913 Indian Single Board Track Racer

Mecum Auction Page Link

From the Venter Collection, this bike was restored by Jim Prosper, whose restorations are some of the most accurate. The bike uses an original 1913 Indian frame and engine, and the bike has been museum displayed.

$52,000 (high bid) – 1931 BMW R16

Mecum Auction Page Link

Originally from the Willy Neutkens Collection of Important BMW Motorcycles, this bike was estimated to fetch between $75,000 and $100,000 but only attracted a high bid of $52,000. Still available.

$67,000 (high bid) – 1929 BMW R63

Mecum Auction Page Link

Estimated to sell for between $90,000 and $110,000, the bike attracted a high bid of just $67,000 and is still available. The R63 is very rare, as it was produced in low volume and was the first 750cc overhead valve motorcycle BMW produced. In the company’s centenary year, it was an even more inexplicable result.

Victory Motorcycles 2017 Range Emea Judge Highball



Just four Victory models will make it to the markets of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) for 2017, with the brand new Octane leading the cruiser charge. Bagger and Touring motorcycles will no longer be on offer in the EMEA region, in anticipation of new models in the near future.

The 2017 Victory Octane in Matte Pearl White color The 2017 Victory Octane in Matte Pearl White color Matte Pearl White is one of the two new colors of the 2017 Victory Octane The 2017 Victory Octane in Gloss Black color with graphics
For the 2017 model year, Victory Motorcycles has announced an EMEA line-up that has shrunk to four ‘Modern American Muscle’ cruisers: the Judge, the Gunner, the High-Ball and the Octane. The Bagger and Touring models Cross Country, Cross Country Tour, Vision and Magnum that were previously available in these markets will be discontinued as of 2017 – although they will still be available in North America.

According to the official press release, the new Euro 4 emission regulations are the obvious culprit of this strategic decision. The 2016 stock of the discontinued models will still be on offer during 2017, taking advantage of the one-year leeway allowed by European rules for existing models that do not comply to the new emission norms.

The 2017 Cruiser models will come with no significant changes, except for some new color variations and enhanced equipment lists.

Apparently Victory is planning to release some new models in the future that will be in full compliance to the European rules.

“We look to a bright future at Victory, learning from our past successes, while not forgetting the models that have made us the brand we are today,” said Rodney Krois, Victory Motorcycles General Manager. “Octane was the start of a new direction for Victory Motorcycles and we can now get ready for the next chapter. Sure, we’re sad to see some models leave the EMEA region, but what follows will be even more exciting.”

The revised EMEA line-up now looks like this.

Octane

The Octane took center stage in 2016 as Victory capitalized on the racing success of the Project 156 at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The former Indian Scout motor was used for the introduction of a new power cruiser model family, with the Octane taking over the role of the patriarch.

For 2017 the Octane will be offered in two new colors; Matte Pearl White and Gloss Black with green graphics added to the Matte Super Steel Grey guise in which the bike was first introduced.

Victory also announced a new line of accessories for the Octane that include a 2-into-1 performance exhaust intake, bar end mirrors, a gun fighter seat, a complete line of billet style parts, a tank bag and a solo rack bag.

Gunner

Powered by the 106 ci (1,737 cc) Freedom V-twin motor, the Gunner is the essential bobber in Victory’s line-up. It comes with no changes for 2017 and will be offered in Suede Titanium Metallic and Suede Sagebrush Green Metallic colors.

Judge

The Judge is designed to convey a muscular look with its drag handlebars, thick 16-inch cast wheels and of course the torquey Freedom V-twin engine. It will be available in the Gloss Sunset Red color with black striping and the characteristic ‘106’ side plates.

Highball

The bobber with the ape hanger handlebars gets a new color scheme for 2017, the striking Nuclear Sunset Orange. Joining the existing Matte Black version, the new color version distinguishes itself with white-walled tires.
