    They do seem to have H-D in their sights. Just look at what they did with Victory and Indian. Polaris really seems to want a piece of the H-D market and are going head-to-head with them. Perhaps this will also mean that they will develop a Brammo electric sport bike and/or cruiser and get established in the market before H-D's board (the one that dumped Buell) can make a decision on what, if anything, to do with the LiveWire project.

    They say they will introduce an electric motorcycle later this year. Apparently it already has a name: Victory Charger.

    All of the speculation is on what style of bike it will be. My money is on a cruiser, but some people think the first model will be a re-badged Brammo Empulse.
