    Can someone explain to me what they mean by fake pushrod? Oh talking about the design on the outside of the casing they chose to go with?

    I'm sure it was meant to remind people of the pushrod days and that that's where are these motors originated from, but the Scout being there more performance-oriented smaller bike it's doubtful they thought will put these fake pushrods on here and make people think that's what it is. I think it's a simple aesthetic design choice made to remind you of the history of the between motor and nothing more if that's even what it is it may be just a design that use to go with and everyone's overthinking it rather than just enjoying the machine which is a good machine.

    Good question. I was wondering the same thing. I don't get fake pushrod out of anything on the Scout engine.

    It looks like investors are not happy with Polaris results. Stock is down 10% so far today.

    Results overall weren't great but motorcycle sales were up 67%, a small part of their business but very good growth in a tough market. I know it's somewhat relative to size but I'd be surprised if HD post an overall gain in sales for 2015. The reports says the sale of large displacement motorcycles was down high single digits in the 4th quarter...

    "overall motorcycle industry retail sales, 900cc and above, declined high-single digits percent in the 2015 fourth quarter"

    Harley's end of 3rd quarter results were $4.81B so they may not hit the 2014 number in 2015 given the last quarter was soft for the large displacement market in general.

    It will be interesting to see if Polaris motorcycle sales can keep up the momentum year over year.

    I dont worry too much about what the stock market does. I sales are up or even if they are meeting their projected numbers it's ok.

    As far as the future of Polaris, the near term future is going to be a rough road...

    “Our outlook for 2016 reflects another volatile year in powersports driven by near-term growth pressures from weak end markets as the threat of a worldwide economic slowdown looms...”

    The word "volatile" can be translated "lower expectations".

    It will be interesting to see the Harley numbers but given the soft 4th quarter for Polaris I'd be surprised if HD matches it's 2014 number ($6.23B). Their nine month 2015 total was 4.81B so they would have to have a pretty strong 4th quarter to match 2014.

    When you watch stock prices forget about the past. Investors care about the future. Look at what Polaris is projecting for 2016 if you want to understand the stock price action.

    For sure Oldman47. And anything less then a stellar forecast...

    "Our outlook for 2016 reflects another volatile year in powersports driven by near-term growth pressures from weak end markets as the threat of a worldwide economic slowdown looms."

    usually doesn't bode well for the stock price in the near term.

    +My wife and I have been pleased overall with PII's performance for the years we've owned both their vehicles and stock, and appreciate their usual continued good news. The current broad range stock turbulence is an anamoly. Stay long, and stay safe.
