Victory’s 2007 model line represents the brand’s ninth year and features nine models, all shown at Polaris Industries’ recent dealer meeting in Orlando, Fla.
Included in the upcoming line-up is a new long-haul bike called the Kingpin Tour; a “Limited Edition” Hammer S; and two new Ness Signature Series models. The company also revealed plans to enter the luxury touring market, displayed a pre-production three-wheeler developed with Lehman Trikes and showed updated returning models.
Victory retail unit sales grew by 43 percent in 2005.
Mark Blackwell, Polaris Vice President Victory Motorcycles and International Operations, said Victory plans to grow sales by approximately 30 percent in 2006. Year-to-date in 2006, retail sales are up 25 percent compared to last year.
“We had a great year in 2005,” Blackwell told Powersports Business. “The industry grew at about 4.5 percent and we grew at about 43 percent. It’s still small numbers, so we’re still a relatively small player, but we’re growing fast and I think gaining credibility in a variety of areas.”
