"One of the most extraordinary motorcycles in the Alcalá de Henares Museum is this Osca, about which it is not easy to obtain information. Also known as Victrix-Osca, on the tank it bears a logo with the «V» and the name Osca, undoubtedly a reference to the city of Huesca - which has those words in Latin on its coat of arms - on a motorcycle that appears to have been manufactured in Madrid."
