    Good news to hear. As far as Victory has progressed in just over a decade I’m looking forward to seeing what they have coming up for the next 10 years.

    So is this a function of an improving economy or raising gas prices….???

    This is a true progression… not a recovery …for Polaris. They are obviously reaching deeper into existing markets….. ( ie, market share) .. .. glad I finally got off my ass and bought their stock awhile back.

    Victory is becoming a name to be reckoned with .. and we’re inching closer to their ‘version’ of Indian … Bright days ahead for this company!

    Good for Victory. This makes better motorcycles for us to buy from all involved. Can’t wait for Indian to get seriously in the game.

    I guess Victory would account for the larger percentage of Polaris’ “on-road” vehicle sales correct? What other on-road vehicles does Polaris produce? It will be interesting to see if Polaris can take a chunk out of the Motor Company’s heritage market as Victory has done against the metric OEM market.

    Polaris owns a couple small electric vehicle companies that are also “on road”. They’ve also expanded their Iowa plant with a full on dedicated assembly line just for Indian. For now the “on road division” is almost all Victory, but they obviously have plans for Indian far and above what it has been for some time now. I’m going to hang on to this stock for awhile.

    For you knowledgeable types up there hoping Indian does something soon?

    Get educated. Polaris owns the Indian brand as well. biggest issue I knew of was fitting the assembly factory to handle the new frames, etc.
