Polaris hiring as it expands line of motorcycles

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Sales of Indian Motorcycles are strong enough to support more jobs at the Iowa plant that makes them.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1qhzcVO ) Polaris Industries expects to hire 300 more people at its Spirit Lake, Iowa plant that already employs more than 700.

The Minneapolis-based company is hiring because it is expanding its Indian line of motorcycles to include the lighter, less-expensive Scout.

Polaris’ ,Steve Menneto says the company is confident there will be strong demand for the revived Scout model.

Sales of Indian Motorcycles have been strong for Polaris, but the brand remains well behind industry leader Harley-Davidson.
