Was he talking about factory gimmees like extra parts allowances? That will hurt dealers since they must get a piece of that action. Or was he talking about making currently stock components optional? Makes sense for a machine that is reliable and the OTD price is negotiable. If you overload it with goodies then what exactly are you leaving on the table for the dealer?The sales guy at my vic shop told me that Victory was going away from the add ons for the bikes, and if you wanted extra's you were going to have to pay for them. Will be interesting to see if that is true
With all this Indian hype, I find myself dreaming of adding the new Chief to my garage. It could be my Sunday bike, and my XR can remain the working horse it currently is.For Goodness sakes man ! Don't do it.! If you do anything at least be different again and buy a new CHIEF thumb up
Rumor is that an XR 8-Ball will be finally coming, which could explain why the HardBall would step away from the line-up.Dammit, I like the hardball and was wanting to get one in a few years
That's kinda what I was thinking. Some apes on a new Chief would be badass for sure!I, too, am thinking about another Indian in my garage.
I wonder if a "kit" will be offered for the apes if the HB dies the death of my XR.
For some reason not having a white option for the Judge kinda pissed me off..especially after the SHARPIE bike was thrown out there...like you made one, why not add the colour?
Ditto on that. We'll see, but I think that has been a focus this year. Getting Indian out of the gate. I know Victory & Indian are suppose to be 2 different entities, but I'm thinking Polaris had to pull some resources to make this happen. The only bike I think that may have had a chance for a make-over may be the Vision. I keep hearing little teasers about making the bags larger, and my local dealer has the New/old Visions marked down substantially.
I can't see that as a good reason to buy an HD unless you like overpriced bikes that leak oil and spend a ton if time in service bays, I speak from experience, I was part of that legion of blind following the blind
All the Harley s I have owned never a problem, did my own service. Thinking of buying a Vrod muscle. All in 1 oil filter change hardly any maintenance. Have watched the bike Evolve. Vegas nice bike keep it for when the wifee rides and the muscle for cruising.
