    Re: Polaris dropping the Victory line of motorbikes

    I won't miss the Victory line, always seemed to have an identity crisis to me. Touted as the other American V-TWIN but sported an overhead cam engine. My pushrod yamaha roadliner has a more American style motor ala HD. And the Victory Vision is just plain fugly. And am overly critical cuz Polaris owned them

    I own a '14 Cross Roads 8 Ball (means no chrome, all black).
    Indian's past has been dotted with financial closures and discontinuations.
    Victory has some tough completion with the HD and the metric cruisers.
    They will be back some day, just like Indian.

    Going the way of the Polaris watercraft. Too bad, lots of investment in both.

    Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
    A persons actions will tell you everything you need to know.

    They probably need the assembly line space to start producing factory snow bikes.......

    The HD coolaid is just too powerful. My guess Indian will fold eventually too.

    Re: Polaris dropping the Victory line of motorbikes

    In the announcement they talk about not being able to achieve the market share they need. I believe anyone who has spent time on a new Harley and also on a new Victory will understand this. Harley has made a lot of changes, most good , they are building a great product, really nice bike.
    And competing with the HD marketing machine was a tough task to start with, inception of Victory and a couple others really woke the giant up.
    Reality, even yet today, little guys still dream and talk about when I grow up I'm gonna buy a Harley".
    Too bad , was a good alternative for some .
