After launching its motorcycles in the country in January this year, Indian plans to introduce dual colour options including the superb cream-red combination that is sure to be a hit.
All the Indian motorcycles are powered by the new 49-degree V-Twin Thunder Stroke 111 engine which makes 138.9Nm of torque at 2,600rpm. It is the largest, most torquey production V-Twin in the market and has head fins, downfiring exhaust and parallel pushrods as reference from the past. A 6-speed manual transmission helps transmit all this power to the road.
“Two-tone paint schemes are among the most iconic elements of vintage Indian motorcycles dating back about 80 years, giving the bikes a look and feel that is instantly recognisable and beloved by motorcycle fans,‚ÄĚ says Steve Menneto, VP of motorcycles for parent company, Polaris.
Indian India (we love saying it like that) say we can expect the dual-colour Chiefs to hit our shores around mid-November 2014.
