I currently own a 2015 Victory Gunner (my 4th Victory) and I agree that Indian won't be far behind......... because prospective Indian buyers will be put off by the fact that Polaris just dumped their Victory line after all those years. Polaris did this with watercraft in the 90's. One day they announced that they simply ceased production.

In my case, I suppose I'll just ride this Victory. The alternative is to "give it away". I like the bike, and have no intention of giving it away - so ......

.................................... .................................. ........................................... ............

The members over at the Victory forum are having a melt-down. Can't blame them all that much.

Sad to see them go. What does closing the doors for service and parts for the owners?

Looks like the VOG forum is having the biggest meltdown. I don't blame them either. I'm going to head over to one of the largest Victory dealers in the states and see what they have to say. They are also an Indian dealer.
