    Polaris developed a new motor for the Ranger Razor which is a 900cc V Twin, but an incredible 88 horsepower. Could the High-Ball be an under $10,000.00 sport cruiser to bring people into the dealers with a 900cc bike. Which by the way they desperately need. The motor doesn't look like it belongs in a motorcycle but hey, what the hey. The Vision was revolutionary as well. Just a thought. Victory's current lineup lacks anything under $13,199.00 which is a huge gap in the motorcycle world, leaving them with nothing to compete with the Yamaha and Honda 1300 cc categories. The Yamaha 1300 title states 79 Horsepower and is mucho impressive off the throttle thru 5th gear, I've ridden it and embarrassed a few harley riders who couldn't keep up. The razor v twin looks like an inline tho, so don't expect it to surface as a motorcycle engine, fun to speculate tho. Guess we will all know tomorrow.

    Doubt it will be under 10k. If the captured screen shots have any truth it will be a 13k bike. We'll know in a few hours anyway.

    I think an entry level bike would be Victor's logical next step. If Vic wants to build a strong "Victory" only dealer network and/or expand Victory floor space within new & existing cross-line dealers, they're going to need a sub $10K entry level bike to help make that happen - imo...
