    For the best! Indian is a much more recognizable brand and the R+D budget can go towards that. Scout is a super nice bike!
    Bought not built!

    Yeah, as a brand Indian has waaaay bigger recognition, no need to develop and market both marques. Unfortunate for Victory fans, though.

    Too bad. As a current Scout owner, I had the Victory Gunner in my sights as my next bike. Victory made beautiful machines that ride well.

    Yeah that's unfortunate. I can't say I've ever seen one on the roads here, but they were all over California when I went last year and thought they were beautiful bikes.

    Good riddance, all they are is a wannabe Harley anyways.

    If you wanna ride a gay cruiser just go out and buy a Honda Shadow now.

    Hate to say it but I agree. Victory to me is a second option to a Harley if you can't afford a Harley.

    Never been an Indian motorcycle fan. The overall look and styling has never made me go "I want one of those"

    I don't care for anything Victory however I don't agree with that logic. I don't have a Harley because I can't stand them, or all the Harley die hards that go with them dressed 24/7 in Harley crap. Don't even want to be associated with the culture lol so the more options out there the better.

    As a guy who's had 2 Harley's and going on a 3rd soon I agree with the die hard douche bags covered In Harley crap... they look stupid haha. And there is absolutely no denying that a large majority of Harley owners are douche canoes

    Not a cruiser rider but I always had a soft spot for this one..



    Im with the others as i wouldnt buy a Harley simply based on the fact that i dont want to be grouped with the mid life crisis warriors that buy every piece of Harley schwag available. (not that being grouped in with sport bike riders is much better )
    I MAKE BALLER CARS MORE BALLER.....

    Im not a cruiser guy at all but if i was buying one that would be it.

    I can only imagine the animosity these guys get lol
