I like it, but not likely to buy one. Mostly because the controls are too far forward. But good on Polaris for making it, but it reminds me of a recent bike from Victory.

Read the article.
"The Scout, a smaller bike than the company's large Roadmaster, Chief Vintage, Chief Classic and Chieftain, has an 1133cc liquid-cooled engine that puts out 100 horsepower, the company says."

One picture isn't really enough to pass judgment on, but I think with slightly different styling, it would fit better in the Victory line-up...the mufflers look like they came off a Victory.

Here's my pie-in-the-sky dreaming/wishful thinking prediction: Victory will get a performance oriented aluminum framed standard with a 1250cc, 150hp version of this motor in it. $14,999. You read it here first, folks.

Indian's version of the Gunner, you say?

I wonder if even mid controls are possible, given the engine architecture in this picture.
