Did everyone see the commercial Indian Motorcycle created to describe the arrival of “choice in American motorcycles”? It’s brilliant. Hundreds of Harley riders stream down a two-lane highway, while at a crossroad a mini pack of Indian riders waits patiently. Finally, one appropriately wizened Harley guy stops the herd, examines the new bikes, then, after a theatrical pause, offers the Indian riders an approving nod, which gives them the right-of-way.
When reintroducing the California 1400 Custom, Moto Guzzi didn’t create a commercial to announce its threat to the establishment. As Italy’s oldest continuously operating motorcycle manufacturer, it’s a brand that drips history and clout. And like most things Italian, it’s sneakily sexy: Versace, Bolo*gnese, Donatello, Aprilia. Blame it on cultural pheromones.
The Demo fleet of Indian Motorcycles are getting prepped as I type so that the tour can commence on February 15th in Miami, FL. Get your helmets out and get excited to swing a leg over the latest incarnation of America's First Motorcycle Company. I have been lucky enough to see a Classic out in the wild, and witness it cut a swath through the generic and hum drum parking lot of one of our local motorcycle haunts. It was awesome. I cannot wait to see the Indian Truck pull up and put its wares on display for the general public to marvel at.
If the tour is rolling through your area, and you get a chance to check the new motorcycles first-hand, please take a camera, and be sure to give us your ride reports!
Not feeling confident in pulling the trigger, and picking up a first generation Indian Motorcycle with Polaris at the helm? Try this one on for size. Indian Motorcycles is so confident in their first offering under the new management, they are offering 5 years of coverage! This includes a year limited warranty and an extended service contract!
How do you like them apples? IF something goes wrong with that new scooter of yours, all it is going to cost you is a $50 deductible, and there is no mileage limitation at all. You can ride that thing to the moon and back and any mishap will still only cost you $50.
They will guarantee you a trade in value when you come back to the dealership in 2 and 3 years later. That is unheard of!
You also get a full year of roadside assistance that spans the whole gamut of things that can go wrong out on the road. Fluids, flat battery, and emergency transport. Now that is service!
If you are on the fence, you needn't be! Indian Motorcycles has you covered!
