Thanks for the video, not a fan of Indians and this is still in that category. Whats with borrowing of a Dodge car name for a bike. Also a dumb move. no thanks.

I'll stick with my RG. I'm not a big fan of the lines on any of the Indian baggers. The Scout and FTR bikes aren't too bad looking though.

Not a bad lookin bike, but I have never liked the Indian front fenders. Looks very similar to a RoadGlide and since I have a RoadGlide, I will keep what I have.

This type of competition is good for the industry and will drive innovation.......so I am glad Indian made this move.....keep the MoCo on their guard

I think the name is directed towards Harley and wants to be the main “challenger” to the Road Glide or at least trying hard to be. We need that completion anyway for some much needed improvements in some areas on Harleys part imo
