Spirit Lake, Iowa -- Enjoying the Ride

September 24, 2014

Looking for a little American muscle? You can find it in Victory Motorcycle assembled in Spirit Lake, Iowa. Polaris Industries, one of the leading manufacturers of snowmobiles and other off-road vehicles, took to the highways in 1998 by introducing  the V92C. It was the second largest motorcycle engine at the time and put Victory in competition with Harley-Davidson and other manufacturers in the U.S.

The plant currently assembles nine different Victory models including baggers, touring and cruiser bikes. The company also supports the Victory Motorcycle Club which holds events and rallies for Victory owners. The club boasts more than 90 chapters around the world. Polaris, which also revived  the iconic Indian brand motorcycles in 2013, announced in August it will be creating 300 new jobs in Spirit Lake to assemble the new Indian Scout. The Spirit Lake plant, which is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year, currently employs approximately 700 people.
