Polaris surprised the industry in January when it announced that it would shut its homegrown motorcycle brand, Victory, and focus entirely on Indian, a company it bought in 2011. So far, the move seems like a smart one. … “Indian’s share of its segment is already higher than Victory’s was.”

All the really mechanically essential parts are pretty easily obtainable. The aftermarket for the bikes is definitely drying up, though. The bikes are so well engineered that for the most part, they just run.
The fact that Victory’s don’t have a high resale value can be a good thing. You can buy a used Victory which is just as good as a new one for a fraction of the price and you still have a bike that can hold its own or surpass anything else on the market.

In announcing the winding down of Victory, Polaris said that the brand struggled to establish the market share needed to be profitable, with competitive pressures increasing headwinds for the brand.
It is definitely a collector bike. And they still have the backing for the next 10 years of parent company Polaris Industries, an industrial giant. After 10 years, we can’t image they would walk away from a lucrative spares market, nor would aftermarket suppliers. … making their bikes more valuable as collector items.
In terms of raw performance, Indian often has the advantage over Harley, but typically by what are negligible amounts, though H-D does produce models with spec sheets that best their Indian-made direct competitor.
Registered. The bike is absolutely metric BUT many aftermarket bolt ons are not.
In 1970, Harley produced the XR-750, shown above, a new Sportster-based entry for AMA Class C racing. In 1981, 13 Harley execs bought their company back from AMF. And in 2011, Polaris Industries bought Indian. All has been well with both companies since.
Indian Motorcycle is owned by Polaris Industries and Polaris has a factory in Opole, Poland where it makes some of its off-road vehicles. … As of this writing, Indian Motorcycle still does all of its production in the U.S. which is a point of pride for many of its riders and employees.
Registered. The engines in the XC are the same as the XCT. My XC manual says 4.0 quarts when not replacing the oil filter and 4.5 quarts when replacing the oil filter.
Motorcycle depreciation is the reduction of the value of your motorcycle with the passing of time due to normal wear and tear. Some motorcycles depreciate faster than others due to reliability issues, model discontinuity, and other factors.
The Hammer will provide better handling and braking with it’s front end. The Jackpot is more of a cruiser with the tall, skinny front tire – I like the styling better. I ride a JP though the winding Ozark hills with no handling issues, but a Hammer can take the turns faster.
The fuel injected, four-valve overhead cam engine makes its mid-80’s horsepower with a smooth, counterbalanced pulse.
