Polaris' managment is abandoning the workers that made the company's success possible so that they can profit from the increase in value of their stock options:

Glad I read this!! Was just about ready to buy a new Victory. Why? It is (was ) american made and american serviced.
Guess I will go back to looking at the Harley shops now for a bike.

It's only the four wheelers!! And besides , Victory is 90% American. As made in the USA!!

Really?! It's common knowledge only 43% of a Harley is Made in the USA. Their VIN plates used to say Made in the USA & they no longer do. Currently 70-80% of Victory is made in the USA. I hate to say it but since Honda has opened plants in states a Gold Wing has more American made parts on it then a Harley! If you want a truly American made motorcycle you better start manufactoring one yourself!

Wrong! HD is not built in USA any more so than a Victory Motorcycle. Besides only some of the parts used that go into a Victory bike will be made in Mexico. The assembly of Victory motorcycles will remain USA. HD has complete assembly lines in Haryana India.

Because it is a superior motorcycle to HD, and is made in the USA. Unlike HD which is built in India. Or would you prefer the US government support the India worker as opposed to the American worker?
