Look at that profile, even covered up there’s no denying that it’s based on a Road Glide faring

So Indian is giving HD a run across all models. That's great! Consumer wins. Water cooled, so much better than air cooled. Better power, better fuel consumption and generally cooler for the rider.

Now, do HD riders demand great changes with the motorco's offerings? Hell no. The motorco puts on its mediocre offerings with just enough change for you to feel there is a difference to be had, with what I'd say is around the time frame of 6 to 8yrs of production. Look at the V-Rod. Way out there for normal offerings and it never really caught on, because people buy an HD for reasons other than advancements and cutting edge technology, and the riders of their products don't push the limits of the bike (hell few even move the odometer much). Other manufacturers already fill the market for those demanding cutting edge and a purpose built machine.

Indian is good, but I don't think it will overtake HD in the cruiser segment of the market, at least not anytime soon. Motorcycle market as a whole is shrinking anyway.

Although it looks like a new Road Glide it doesn’t have the M8 so it’s probably safe to take it for longer runs

Indians are ugly, dealers are to far and few between, there is no aftermarket support, Indian parts are expensive, and things on the bike look like after thoughts (like the hand controls).

If they sold better they probably wouldn't have the niceties on them that they do.

People can buy an Indian if what they want.

I wouldn't get one no matter what. I like Harley, That's why I buy them. Looks are important to me I guess and I just can't get past how shitty Indians look. I only know one cat that has an Indian and he got it because it was cheaper.
