    I’m with slickvic. Just bought my second Victory when they killed the brand. Left me high and dry for accessories. Love the way the Vic makes power. Looked at the new Indian Chief and wondered why it only makes 75 hp. No thanks.

    79 horsepower isn't anything to get excited about, but 111lb-ft at the wheel out of the box is pretty good.

    Or they weren’t idiots.

    If they kept both. What do you think people would buy more of once they took a ride in each bike? Most would buy the better performing less expensive better Handel if motorcycle. Unless they just wanted Indian for its name.
