Kris, I tend to march to a different drummer. In high school, whatever the fad was, I would avoid it. No sheep me. Requiring a lower seat height, I was forced into buying a cruiser, a style of bike I never liked, and would not consider a Harley due to their popularity for one reason or another. Fortunately, Victory broke out the Cross bikes at the right moment and now I have the cruiser that a cruiser hater can love.
Americans appreciate a bargain too and an equivalent Victory sells for less than a Harley, hence some sales. What Polaris is fighting are the traditionalists, the groupies and the wannabes that the H-D culture has cultivated. Vic's 15 years against the MoCo's 110. Considering that alone, I think Vic is doing nicely here, not great, but OK. Back to me, I like that I am usually the only one riding in to a group on a victory. Its fun watching the H-D guy's reactions.
