Weds July 13 edition of the UK motorcycle newspaper Motorcycle News has published some 'images'.

The opening paragraph reads:

'Pictures of five new Indians and a production version of the radical Victory Core concept have leaked to MCN after a reader was unwittingly targeted by an online research firm'

'New Chief, set to be the defining new Indian: conventional forks, dual seat and high exit pipes make the visual case that this is a serious Harley rival'

'New Warrior: Surprise parallel twin evokes Indian's 1949-51 foray into British-bike territory'

'New Sport Scout: Reminiscent of the bike which lapped the entire field in the inaugural 1937 Daytona 200. And is that motor liquid cooled?'

'1950's-style Chief: No front downtube on the frame, plus bodywork reminiscent of unpopular late period Chief, it looks like a red herring'

'Eight-valve racer tribute: ultra purposeful roadster bears the white tyres and tank-under-frame style of Indian's 1910s board-track racer.'

Each is accompanied by an illustration NOT a photograph.

The final paragraph of the article says:

'If you are in the market for an authentic Harley alternative, you'll have to wait around 18 months. Mike Pedler, Polaris' UK sales and marketing boss says: 'We've got international models planned, but we'll just be serving the US market for the next 18 months' '

Remember, you heard it here first!

Eventually the article may appear on their website (http://www.motorcyclenews.com/).

Bottom left is the core bike. Amazing they could disguise it that well.

Those cylinders are real tall & long - kinda odd looking. It will be interesting to see the final production bike. I like the Indian nostalgia - I hope it works - I would like to see it succeed & stick around. Can't be ugly though.

The bottom left is NOT the Core bike, it's the eight-valve racer tribute with the tank under frame style of Indian's 1910's board-track racer.

This is the best I can do. The Core bike referred to is in the small inset picture.

I guess it looks ok..........

If they want Indian to sell it has to look like an Indian and run like a Victory! full valanced fenders, retro style vtwin, push rod etc... I am saving for one if they do it with a decent price point!
