Polaris Industries own, American motorcycle maker, Indian Motorcycle, will launch three new motorcycles. Polaris Industries CEO, Scott Wine hopes three motorcycles will woo enough fans to justify his “$100 million bet” on buying America’s oldest bike brand. Indian bikes are manufactured at the same state-of-the-art facility as Polaris owned Victory motorcycles. Bikes have maintained its signature handcrafted leather details brand is known for since 1901.
