Re: New Indian

120 horsepower, 500 pounds, amazing looks (obviously subjective), and priced far more competitively than I expected it would be. This has all the makings of a really cool bike. I bet it sells really well.

If the 120hp is true that will be a heck of a bike.

Re: New Indian

Pricing and power for the S model is directly in line with the base Monster 1200 which is pretty impressive. I like it!!

Re: New Indian

Polaris continues to evolve. Looks like a superb design to me. These will sell in a very competitive market.

Re: New Indian

Looks similar to the bikes Travis Pastrana used for his LasVegas jumps.

Re: New Indian

I agree 100% with everything said above. Looks great. Great specs and a competive price too. I don't need but I sure do want.

Rob, really? And you were just getting known as Dirty Rob too.

Re: New Indian

Wonder how the fenders will work in the wet? Looks like engine will catch it in front and possibly rider in back. Good range for fuel tank. Like to see her in spokes.

Re: New Indian

Also looks like it has flat track potential.

Re: New Indian

Oh great another bike I can’t afford.
At least its a way of getting another chance at picking up a “Harley XR1200X like” flat tracker, you may have missed the first time around.

Funny you say that. My first thought when I saw the production version of the Indian (and the specs) was, “This looks like the bike I wished the XR1200 was”.

I think that about almost every factory exhaust. Emissions and noise standards really handcuff designers in that area.
