I wouldn't put much faith in larger discounts.

There are 4.3 million here in the valley with one dealer still in operation that employs one mechanic.

Every time I see that ad in Broggy's post #2, I get piss'd. It demonstrates, all too well, that Polaris had no idea how to market their Victory line or who their clientele was. Grrr.

Polaris sucks plain and simple. Do not buy a Indian. I thought they would give me a good trade in value for my Victory. That was a joke. Plus Indians are a 2 valve motor and push rod motor. They are a regression from a Victory motor. They stepped back not forward with the Indian and want more money. Buy a Harley Davidson. Their new motor is assume.

Of course the area's population is irrelevant compared to the number of Victory motorcycles within the area. But I get your point and it's well made and taken. I know that when I lived in the greater Chicagoland area (8M+) and now in the greater Chattanooga area (0.8M?) I was and still am the only one on my block (or in my neighborhood) to ride a Victory.

My local dealer is about 25 miles from me. They opened as a Polaris Indian/Slingshot/Victory dealer in late 2015. Just over a year later Polaris kicked a leg off their Polaris tripod. The people who own and work their (Crockett Powersports) are great. I'll enjoy being their this weekend for the Veteran's Day ride that originates at their shop. In fact they participate in a lot of local mc events. But no sir, they won't be selling me a Polaris Indian.

I do believe Victory of Mesa overtook Mom's as the #1 volume Victory dealer after the shutdown they were #2 but started buying up others inventory. I know that doesn't mean the bikes stayed here they probably didn't.

My situation is very similar, in that my dealer is also one of those 'Powersports' dealers that still sells Polaris, along with Honda's, some Suzuki's, and Kawasakis. So, I don't foresee having a problem with warranty work, parts, or service. Only drawback is that they are 100 miles away. The advantage to that drawback is that the back roads to get there offer some of the best riding and scenery in Southern Arizona.
