Polaris tried to acquire KTM, but did not. Maybe they sure acquire the motorcycle Gas-Gas, it is a Spanish company that makes motocross, enduro, trials, and quads. They produce their own two-stroke engines and even have a side valve four-stroke that will be out in 2009 check it out. http://www.gasgas.com/images/fourstroke/4stroke_diag.jpg[/b]
They did not try to buy KTM,Rumor only, they have a limited partnership with them. Acording to Snow Goer and POLARIS. POO news section on Polaris vehicle site reported this 1+ year ago.
Some other rumors were that POO was moving to NORWAY. Also debunked by POO on their web site.

I would think KTM is too big of a company for Polaris to just buy out. Plus I think KTM is in a way better financial state than Polaris, their dirt bikes and supporting hardware are the tits!!!

polaris owns 25% of ktm and uses a 525cc ktm motor in the outlaw quad[/b]
They're using KTM's 450cc motor as well in their new Outlaw 450 race quad. This quad received excellent reviews in the latest issue of ATV Sport for anyone who cares.

Polaris sold back to KTM its shares of stock. Thought it might be interesting to see peoples reaction if Polaris bought a small motorcycle company to complete the Victory line. You can bet you will see a KTM engine in a Polaris sled in the near future. :thumbsup:

Maybe Polaris should...........Stop making their sleds so Fast.?
It is embarassing to Ski-doo and the others.

Should we ask Polaris to screw up on the clutching and make the engines only 100hp so the others can keep up??
