Motorcycle Obsession: What's in the box, Polaris?

Kind of carrying on the theme from the previous one, today's motorcycle blog post deals with Polaris, the Minnesota-based company that owns Victory Motorcycles. It also owns Indian Motorcycles, a 113-year-old brand that was resurrected by Polaris three years ago.

Last year, at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota, the Polaris-backed Indian released its first new models. These models featured a massive 111 cubic-inch engine, which was the first truly new Indian engine in something like half a century. If you don't care about motorcycles, the long and short of all this was that it was awesome. The motorcycle world fell over itself in rapture.

Now the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is again approaching, and again Indian are set to reveal something. What they will reveal has become my favourite mystery and I talk a lot about it in this post, and even more in the post's comments:
