Polaris Industries, owner of the Indian Motorcycle brand, just released financial results from the second quarter of 2017, including good news for Indian sales and market share.
Ignoring a big reduction in sales of Victory models, a brand that has been discontinued, but including the Slingshot three-wheeler, Polaris reported a slight reduction in quarterly sales for its motorcycle segment. Indian itself, however, reported “retail sales increased 17% and continued to gain market share ….”
Some of that market share gain for Indian is undoubtedly at the expense of heavyweight cruiser leader Harley-Davidson, which reported decreasing sales for the same quarter.
