    It was a bummer when Honda stopped. Not that I would ride a goldwing or an ace, but it was cool that they had American manufactured bikes none the less.

    At least they were almost 100% made in the US. Some small FI part was made in Sweden. Unlike Hardleys that are 50-60% made in the US

    Manufacturers no longer in production[edit]
    This is a list of companies that formerly produced and sold motorcycles available to the public, including both street and race/off-road motorcycles. It also includes some former motorcycle producers of noted historical significance but which would today be classified as badge engineered or customisers. It includes both companies that are defunct, those that still exist but no longer make motorcycles, and some that were acquired by other companies.
    This is a dynamic list and may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness. You can help by expanding it with reliably sourced entries.

    ^ "Norton Website". The Norton company closed in the UK in 1976. The company reopened in 1995 in Portland, Oregon, United States manufacturing replacement parts and eventually new Norton models. The venture eventually required capital and was bought by Stuart Garner who intends to return production to the United Kingdom.

    a b "Vincent Motors". In 1928, Phil Vincent bought HRD and changed the name to Vincent HRD. In 1949, Vincent HRD was renamed Vincent. Production of Vincent stopped in 1955. In 1994, Bernard Li acquired the rights to the Vincent trademark, and in 1996 formed Vincent Motors, USA. Vincent Motors, USA, made 5 prototype motorcycles in 2002. The engine used in these motorcycles has since gone out of production and Mr. Li has since died. It is therefore not likely that series production will begin.

    Trump will be fixing that come January 20. How dare those Japanese people make our American motorcycles in Japan taking jobs away from American Citizens. Next thing ya know they will be making transistor radios and TV sets.

    If there was one brand within the Polaris portfolio that I wouldn't bet on lasting a decade--Indian would be it.
    Make believe Americana.
    Aka zombie-brand.

    Never forget they are making Harleys in India these days. Besides I could never see Victory lasting, ugly in your face over done monster bike that only the strongest and fittest could push around, which creates a small market

    Considering they have been around for half that time already, who knows. I know the FTR750 American Flat Track bike is the business and they have three of the best flat track racers in the US riding for them in 2017. I know this doesn't sell land yachts, but at least they have something going on.

    It's not a Rotax, it's manufactured in house.

    Honda makes a little flat tracker called an FTR too. It's really a street bike and

    far less complicated than the "Indian" flat track racebike. The caliber of riders that Polaris has hired to, are able to be fast guys on damn near any bike. So it ain't all aboot "Deus Ex Machina"

    The name "Indian" was bought to use to sell bikes. Several factors led to the demise of the original company including Harley Davidson's factory racing bikes and riders and contracts let by the US Government to Harley-Davidson in WWII.

    Honda FTR223. way too small for us six footers but a nice bike.
