From the Manufacturer
Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, Expands to 16 Models for 2018 In 1901, Indian Motorcycle became America’s first motorcycle company. Since then, the iconic brand has captured the hearts of motorcyclists around the world through its dedication to legendary acts, industry firsts, racing dominance, and innovative design.
When Indian Motorcycle relaunched in 2013, it roared into the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally with an all-new 3-model lineup. Over the last 4 years, Indian Motorcycle has proved that it has no intention of slowing down. An ever expanding lineup, unrivaled engineering, and industry-leading technology have catapulted the brand into the 21st century and honored its iconic name.
Indian Motorcycle presents a 16-model lineup—an impressively wide product offering that ranges from the 999cc liquid-cooled Scout Sixty to the ultra-premium Roadmaster Elite embellished with 23k gold leaf badging. The stripped-down Scout Bobber, the blacked-out Springfield Dark Horse and the ultra-premium Roadmaster Elite are new for the 2018 lineup while other models receive significant upgrades and new paint schemes. Notably, the Chieftain Dark Horse gets a 19” ten-spoke blacked-out wheel and Ride Command—the largest, fastest, most customizable infotainment system on two wheels.
