Yeah, there's light-years of difference between Polaris and the fly-by-nighters who owned the trademark before. It'll do well as a high-margin/low-volume bike.

I still fail to understand why they chose "Victory" for their enginecycle division instead of just calling it Polaris. There's substantial brand equity there and a built-in potential customer base that loves their sleds. Dumb move, IMO.

Jingoism is a big seller at biker rallies.

An American flag doo rag just don't look right on them there Polaris'.

That sounds like some kind of Polack bike.

That would be a Can-Am Spyder.
