This was a shock as I know some of the people over at Polaris and spent some time with them last year at the shows and such. Plus they are a local company and a spin off of EH. I really like my KingPin and would buy another Victory in a heartbeat. On the plus side there are plenty of good Victorys out there and parts are not a problem as they seldom break and there are warehouses full of spare parts anyway.
It could be a Carrier spin but I who knows.
I know initially they wanted to gain 2% market share and have done much better than that so this makes it even more surprising. Still I am saddened by the move.
