I don't think Harley is worried about Victory. Victory has served to make Harley better. Think about it. When people ask what you ride and you have a Harley. When the answer is "a Harley" the conversation ends. There are no silly follow up questions like "Whats that" "Who makes that?" "or the inevitable "Why didn't you buy a Harley?" then the replys to that are canned responses regarding all the same old school issues , reliability, oil leaks, Pirates, Harley jokes, Lifestyle vs a great machine,, But all that falls on deaf ears because to most people, Harley IS the only motorcycle and you still don't have a Harley. VERY powerful brand for better or worse, and the Indian won't change it.
