I'm dubious.
Polaris the company has had a terrific track record in a really competitive field...make that fields. Some small snowmobile company in Minnesota is now a multibillion dollar manufacturing company. Their snowmobiles rock, their atvs are really good...and they make a motorcycle too

I talked to one of their engineers at Sturgis and he said Indian will be more nostalgia/traditional, and Victory would go more techy. Makes sense. Indian can appeal to those who like fringes, Victory can pivot toward more touring stuff/muscle bikes. Hey, it wouldn't take a great leap of engineering for them to use their snowmobile/atv expertise and make a reallystonking adventure or dirt-bike. Stranger things have happened.
