Howdy Folks,
Huntsville is a great city in a beautiful part of the country; I've visited it a couple of time with our Presidio High School rocketry club to participate in NASA's Student Launch Initiative. Does this mean that Polaris is pulling ATV production out of Mexico?

Article said the new plant will make the Ranger and Rzr models. That's all I know of for now. What is coming from Mexico?

It's called the Rocket City. Has a lot of hi tech jobs and is a nice clean place to live.

Howdy taboothe,
Those are their side-by side models which I believe they've been building in the Spirit Lake plant along with Indian and Victory; sounds like Spirit Lake will be exclusively motorcycle production...

I'd agree they are looking forward to an increase in 2 wheeled production. I don't think they were quite ready for the Indian brand to take off a fast as it has though. A good problem to have!!

The Huntsville plant will also build a new type of off road machine named the Polaris Ace. It's a single ride in cab with steering wheel 4x4 machine. It's already for sale. Check out their website. Looks like a lot of fun and affordable.
