Scott Wine, Polaris’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The second quarter results, our 19th consecutive quarter of record earnings performance, exemplify our commitment to delivering high quality innovative products and a first-class purchase experience that our consumers expect. Our strong financial performance in the quarter was driven by outstanding retail sales growth, up 15 percent in North America, driven by share gains in our side-by-side vehicle product line and continued growth of our Indian motorcycle business. The recently introduced Sportsman ACE further solidifies our #1 market share position in the North American ORV market and our Small Vehicle and PG&A businesses delivered impressive growth, up 29 percent and 20 percent year-over-year in the second quarter, respectively.” 
 
Wine continued, “On the heels of last year’s new product launch, which was lauded to be the largest and most groundbreaking in our Company’s history, next week we will celebrate our 60th anniversary and further enhance our innovation profile with the unveiling of our model year 2015 products for ORVs, motorcycles and the much anticipated Slingshot vehicle. Between strong demand for our existing offerings and our industry leading product innovation, we believe sales and earnings will continue to accelerate in the second half of the year, supporting our confidence and decision to again raise full year sales and earnings guidance for 2014.”
