Wow, that's interesting.

I wasn't even aware that the motorcycle market was soft until some of our members mentioned that here in another thread a month or so ago.

As I understand it Polaris developed the Victory Motorcycle brand as a start up 18 years ago and then bought Indian Motorcycle brand when it went bankrupt about 10 years ago.

Do most Victory Dealers also have the Indian franchise? If not I could see how there could be some resentment because Polaris used their capital and resources to develop the Indian brand when they could have supported the Victory franchise.

Very much like the loyal GM dealers who resented GM's development of the Saturn Franchise when those resources could have been used to make their existing brands more competitive in the market.
