Was initially sponsored or made by Polaris from what I understand.
Nice looking bikes, not real keen on engine upgrades from what I was told but that's been a few years.

They don’t make them anymore. Indian took their place. The first Victories the V92 had serious transmission problems. They would lock up the rear tire. They never found a fix. Their answer was buy a new bike. The newer ones seem to be pretty decent. I have a cousin that puts about 20000 miles a year on one.

My BIL used to have one-bought it used.  Speedometer did not work.  Had been replaced under warranty, so would not warranty it again.  $600 if memory serves to replace it, never did that as did not trust it to be any better!

I thought they were made by Polaris too. There is a dealer about 40 miles from me. I've looked at them many times, nice looking bikes. They are a few guys at work that has one. I've seen them in the parking lot, but I have no idea what years they are. I never heard them say anything negative about them.

ATV and off road too.
I bought a Polaris PWC in 01.
1200cc 3cyl 135hp 2 stroke.
67 mph is all I could get out of it.
They had a 100hp upper engine and exhaust upgrade for 3K.

Go fast enough you just skip, water up your nose kinda thing.
Plenty sore but never got hurt.

Joe I see a lot of them here too. They and the four wheelers don’t have very good reputations. I believe they run and ride good but break down often here in the rough country.
My dad has a Polaris 4 wheeler that rides like a new Cadillac.. he’s easy on stuff and I’m sure it will hold up fine. I’d have it tore up first day.£

  Yeah,,Thad,,,I think I posted here before on the excellent ride quality of my Son's Can-Am in the rough country,,and he ain't shy bout gettin where most people will not even try to go,,,,,Clap He tells me Can-Am uses some really exotic (which equates to expensive) Wink
 shocks/struts for their ride quality. On the times I'd been drinkin enough to get in thet thing with him,,,,,,,,I was amazed at the "No Bouncing" around when we was "off Road" at those ridiculous speeds he like to travel inClapClap
 I still gots two Polaris Trail Boss 350's that I had fixed up for the older grand sons and them sobs would bounce you around pretty good if much faster than a crawl,,,,,,Only'ist thing I did NOT like bout them is they tend to run ragged at the higher elevations (8400 ft) because of being two stroke,,,,
