They are slowly killing our beloved brand. Prepare to mourn and deal with it's less competent, more popularly named sister brand.

You can't just read the headline. Polaris is making money. Vic ain't the reason. Motorcycles and snowmobiles TOGETHER only account for 15% of Polaris earnings. And while the motorcycle sector SALES grew, Vic sales were actually down year on year. And I've yet to see an accounting for what motorcycle profits are after the pile they paid to develop and market the Indians.

Per Vics website..... 15 models for 2014. 9 models for 2015. BIG reduction.

Jackpot gone. No surprise. Even with 2014 great paint scheme.
Boardwalk gone. No surprise. Never held a candle to the Kingpin it replaced.
Judge gone. No surprise. Gunner and Highball make it not needed.
Vegas 8-Ball only. Probably last year? Who knows. Need entry level, but the new WET bikes will take over.
Hammer 8-Ball. Almost certain that this will be last year.

Vics going to aluminum frame trouring bikes and steel frame WET bikes. I see touring bikes being phased out with the tour packs and body panels on the new Indians.

Start of an era, or beginning of the end ???

It's not a rumor. They have applied for patents.

Hope they stay around and stay different . The Indians are nice but if I wanted retro looks I would have stayed with the Yami Roadstars , the best looking vtwin on any bike
