    No new polaris?

    Why did polaris stop making pwc? I mean I have owned polaris 4x4 4 wheelers, I know they make a kick butt snow mobile. I also seen a few 2003 polaris and they looked very nice. Thanks again, Rod

    Seadoo owns so much of the market and polaris saw no real reason to keep dumping money into a product line that really wasnt profitable..

    A few reasons I'm aware of but like hydrotoys summed it up.
    OUT-SOURCING was the demise of the Polaris PWC department.

    BRP bought Johnson who owns the Ficht injectors Polaris needed to continue their 140 project.
    The 110/150 went into cost over run for the engine once they added marinezation costs.
    The release delay of one model year for Polaris to enter and compete in the 4 stroke wars.
    The first year quirks with the 110/150.
    The constant loss the PWC department generated.

    There are alot of other reasons that contributed to the closing of the PWC department but it's sad as they finally put a good hull together and with the new model on the horizon they would have done AWESOME.
    They should have developed their own power-plant instead of outsourcing.

    Makes me wonder??? Could you fit a V-Rod motor sideways in a hull.That would be a Sweet Sound on the water.

    Victory mopeds, I mean motorcycles. One of the many reasons the PWC line died.
