Which bike will set the quickest time up the Mountain?

Which do you think will be the faster bike at the 2016 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, the Victory Empulse TT or Project 156?Victory Motorcycles

Ask Cycle World Road Test Editor Don Canet what he likes most about the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and he'll say something like, "That the race is between you and the Mountain, not you and another bike." This year, however, that's not entirely true.

That's because this year our man Canet and the all-electric Empulse RR that we've been covering as part of our "A Mountain of Unfinished Business" series will be going up against former PPIHC winner Jeremy Toye and the gas-burning Project 156, and Victory is making a bit of a competition out of it.

Which bike do you think will set the quickest time up the Mountain, the electric bike or the gas burner? Vote now at and be entered to win a Victory Empulse TT (should electric receive the most votes) or a Victory Octane (should gas receive the most votes).

And don't worry, we can't see who voted for which bike, so we can't ban you from the site should you vote Thunder (Toye/gas). We would though. Oh trust us, we would. #TeamLightning
