Polaris Industries Inc., has donated two Victory motorcycles to the Iowa Lakes Community College Motorcycle and Small Engine program which will assist students in their learning experience.
The two motorcycles are a 2007 Vegas and 2007 Kingpin. They will be used for educations purposes.
“With the addition of two more Victory motorcycles, the students will be able to better hone their skills as technicians in such areas as fuel injection, electricity, power train/drive train, and suspensions in both the classroom and the lab,” said Matt Bohl, instructor in the Motorcycle and Small Engine program based on the Emmetsburg campus.
Polaris Industries Inc., is a recognized leader in the powersports industry and is based in Minneapolis. In addition to motorcycles, Polaris designs, engineers, manufactures and markets innovative, high quality off-road vehicles (ORVs), including all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and the Polaris RANGER® side-by-side vehicles, snowmobiles and on-road electric/hybrid powered vehicles.
“Our employees are not only building and designing our machines, they are also enthusiastic riders,” said Cory Knudtson, Operations Manager. “This gives us the competitive edge because we are working together to make the riding experience better.”
“The value of business support for our education programs is priceless,” said Jolene Rogers, Executive Director Institutional Advancement. “The student’s opportunity to utilize current technology and actual simulations helps them be prepared for success in their career pursuit. The Victory motorcycles from Polaris are a tremendous visual and public endorsement of the commitment the company has to quality education.”
