I sat on one as well.
I sat on an Octane today at the Barry Sheene festival of speed at Eastern Creek raceway Sydney. Really nice seating position, very nice suspension feeling compared to the Scout which was also on the stand. All in all I thought the Octane to be a more together bike than the Scout. Not having ridden either I may be way off the mark, but thats what it felt like from just sitting. I also can't seem to upload any pix. Damn eh?
