Just read an article about Indian trademarking the names Pursuit & Guardian. Sounds like they might be preparing to dive in to the world of police motorcycles. If so, I hope they last longer then the Victory experiment.

I would definitely push my administration to take a look at the indians over Harley.

I was actually wondering how Indian will fare through this pandemic. This recent article about their future bike names could be read as a good sign, I guess.

Police bikes would be a potentially lucrative market. Harley Davidson probably has most of that business here in the USA although others have also had pieces of that pie. BMW, Honda and Kawasaki come to mind. Long ago Moto Guzzi also had police motorcycles as I recall. I hope Indian has success.

Victory did very well when they started producing police bikes. They were able to contract with over 150 departments and were going strong until Polaris pulled the plug. I'm still riding my Victory Commander 1 at work with hopes of a new Indian coming out in the future

Just to be clear, Victory and Polaris had nothing to do with the Police version of the Cross Country. That was done solely by a private company in Tucson AZ. Victory just supplied the platform.

Even if there was a 3rd party doing the prep package, there was definitely an agreement with Pii to provide the bikes at a discounted price.

To be clear, the VPM folks out of Tucson did get factory money from Polaris. Mike & Anita had several meetings with them. Actually, at one point Victory had the police bikes on the website.

My point was, Victory did not have anything to do with the development of the police platform. Will try to be more precise in the future.
