    To the best of my knowledge, Polaris have no history in motorcycle manufacture & marketing.

    Victory, to me like a hybrid of a Harley & an Indian, cool idea but how many want to buy it.

    From the get go pricing was an issue ... they priced themselves equal to HD. Instead of aligning their pricing closer to the the Japanese manufacturers or ever below to get a foothold in the market. They 'wrongly' assumed people would pay HD prices for a new brand from a company with no real road bike experience.
