According to an analyst from UBS Investment Research, Indian Motorcycles is on track to outsell its sibling company Victory Motorcycles in 2014, its first full year of sales since the company’s recent rebirth.
If this prediction turns out to be accurate, this will be a huge feat for Indian, considering the fact that the American brand only sells three models since its relaunch in August of last year, compared to Victory’s current 15 model lineup.
Victory has also been around since 1998 when it was created by Polaris Industries to be a cruiser alternative to the iconic Harley Davidson brand.
Among other predictions boosting revenue for Polaris in 2014 is the release of the Slingshot, a three-wheeled, reverse trike that will be powered by a 2.4L Ecotec four-cylinder engine from GM, which may give the KTM X-Bow and Campagna V13R some stiff competition.
Though 2014 looks to be a great year for Polaris Industries, time will tell if their plan to resurrect the Indian brand will bury some of Harley Davidson’s sales figures.
