    Yep. I really hoped that motor/bike was going to be badged Victory.

    Can't wait to see more.

    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.:D

    Indian's version of the Gunner, you say?

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

    Well they damn sure toned down the Ugly on the Scout's fenders that's for sure, It's actually pretty good looking from that angle and I'm not much into Cruisers..

    Now if only the controls were more centered then far forward.. Wonder if that thing will take on the V-Rod? Or well if that's the market it's going for.


    Also the "AIRCOOLED HURRR" Guys are going to have a meltdown.

    What a ridiculous thing to say. Was HD the first company to build a water cooled cruiser?

    I want pictures with the bodywork off.

    Night Rod Special. Same size engine with 15 more HP. The Indian is a lot cheaper, though.
