I rode an Octane last year with the optional piggy-back shocks(stage1 engine also), they were some serious business. It was in a group ride so I couldn't push it much but it could feel the sportiness of the suspension....that little bike was a blast to ride
As I was writing this I remembered I had a pic of the bike:

btw: I read back in this thread and it was made right after the launch of Octane when most of us were very disappointed as to what was released. After riding the Octane I came around to it a bit more and did like it for what it is. That said, I, like most of us, would have liked Octane to have been more a "true sport bike", closer to the Project 156 it came from.
