On January 9, 2017 Polaris Industries made a big announcement. They announced that they will no longer be producing Victory Motorcycles. While the end of Victory Motorcycles will be disappointing to Victory owners, it is good to be prepared.
Here is a snippet of Polaris’s Announcement:
“This was an incredibly difficult decision for me, my team and the Polaris Board of Directors,” said Polaris Industries Chairman and CEO Scott Wine. “Over the past 18 years, we have invested not only resources, but our hearts and souls, into forging the Victory Motorcycles brand, and we are exceptionally proud of what our team has accomplished. Since inception, our teams have designed and produced nearly 60 Victory models that have been honored with 25 of the industry’s top awards.”
What you can do
A few positives that we found is that they will have a parts supply for ten years. Another plus is that dealers will still provide service and warranty coverage to Victory owners. They have also stated that they will assist their dealers with inventory. With this news you will likely have questions or concerns. It’s important to be proactive rather than to wait for something to happen. Be sure to ask your local dealer. They should be able to answer any questions you have and maybe refer you to other resources. To locate a Victory dealer near you here is a link to their website: Victory Motorcycle Web Site
Polaris is going to now focus on extending resources to its Indian and Slingshot brands. Which is great news for the Spirit Lake, Iowa community who will still have the Indian Motorcycle production. They also have a commitment to the Huntsville, Alabama community with its Slingshot production.
