Haven't seen a bike in person yet. I did grab the issue of Cycle World that had the new motor in it. Pretty interesting design.

But there ain't nuthin' like the real thing!

I love the new Indian. But can't afford a $19,000 bike. I'm glad they cut the price. I feel Indian is here to stay this time. And it's actually worthy of the Indian name.

Looks like they took some styling tips from Victory. I'll pass.

Both the new Indian and Victory are Polaris companies. Polaris says the companies and product lines will remain separate. But I'll bet we see combined Indian/Polaris dealerships just like we saw Chevy/Pontiac , Suzuki/Kawasaki or Harley/Buell dealers.

Buzz Kanter from American Iron was at the unveiling last night and posted up on Facebook. He said he got to ride one a month back and really liked it.

I like the engine "flathead" look but was never a fan of the fenders.

Riding Baggers before Baggers were cool!
Riding an FXD when everyone else started riding baggers!

Really the Kawasaki Drifter looked better than most recent Indian versions IMO.

Those skirted fenders is kind of indians signature. Indians got me into motorcycle after seeing Brian Setzers.

Kawasaki got sued because of that bike. By who owned Indian at the time. I don't like Kawasaki because all they do is copy other companies designs. Like the w650 which was a copy of a triumph bonnieville
