I just spent a couple of days with Victory Motorcycles testing a new model, and happened to have a discussion with an executive at dinner about parent company Polaris and the now sister-brand Indian (recently purchased by Polaris). It is clear that interesting things are coming for both Indian and Polaris, although I was given no specifics.
One thing is for sure. Every motorcycle enthusiast has their idea of the design direction Polaris should take with the iconic Indian brand, including our friend Oberdan Bezzi. His concept is pictured above, and it combines modern chassis components (Brembo brakes and Ohlins forks, for instance) with a traditional looking v-twin engine (and a huge one, at that). A sport bike in racing livery, including homage to the traditional sponsor brand Sunoco fuels. A sport bike with an American classic twist, according to Bezzi.
