All those Victory engineers and stylists had to go somewhere.

Yep, word is the Challenger's engine design was initially started by the Victory engineering staff and was to be a Victory before Polaris pulled the plug on that brand.

We've been through all this before, but the same folks that worked on Victory (engineers, designers, manufacturing, assembly, etc.) are Polaris employees. When they shut down Victory, most of the Victory guys started working on Indians and wearing Indian shirts.
I have it on good authority that some of the loyal Victory guys now working on the Indian line are still wearing Victory gear.
