    From what I read, Victory wasn't very profitable for Polaris, Indian has been a money maker right out the gate. However, a Polaris spokesman says what they learned with Victory gave them the confidence to buy and revive the Indian brand.

    I can recall how well my 2 stroke triple sound was under power ~ two bad Polaris doesn't use their 2 stroke triple in a sport bike . . .

    That was an awesome video cheers,
    I ride with a mate who has an RG 4 & 500 wicked noise and cool to ride as are the Benelli TNT 1130, I've burnt a couple of tanks of gas thru it very deceptive power and nice torque.
    Another friend has a NS400R in Rothman colours it's got an crazy wail to.
