|For 2016 Indian Motorcycle is once again delivering premium finishes and new colour schemes for its range of cruisers, baggers and tourers.
Indian Motorcycle has had record sales results this financial year, helped by overwhelming demand for the Scout,
Chief Dark Horse and Roadmaster. The brand expects growing interest from bikers throughout EMEA during 2016 as they begin
to see and hear more about Indian Motorcycle ownership and the experiences each model can offer.
Dario Baraggia, EMEA Motorcycle Brand Manager, says it’s easy to see the appeal of these beautiful, well-engineered
motorcycles on roads throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
“It seems like yesterday that Polaris re-launched Indian Motorcycle at the end of 2013,” says Dario. “And now we are launching a
MY16 range with six award-winning motorcycles that have been enjoyed by a high number of customers in just two years of sales.
The design, the technology, the quality and the riding capabilities of each Indian Motorcycle really do give riders a unique experience.”
Here’s a look at the MY16 line-up.
height and ABS as standard, the Indian Scout is the perfect multipurpose bike for any rider. Its liquid-cooled 1133cc V-twin e
ngine has a usable 100hp of performance and a sound that will bring a smile to your face every time you ride.
For 2016 the Scout comes in five colours.
Wildfire Red – NEW
2016 Chief Dark Horse | Chief Classic | Chief Vintage | Chieftain
unmatched engineering and stunning beauty of the industry’s hottest heavyweight cruisers and baggers.
The Indian Chief family has impeccable styling and sophisticated performance. The proven Thunder Stroke 111 engine
powers them all (an air-cooled version is on the Chief Dark Horse, Classic and Vintage), but each model has its own character and style.
Riders can opt for the Chief Classic (cruiser) with its classic looks, much cleaner now following some re-work carried
out for 2016: solo vinyl seat, black switches, single headlight and cast aluminium wheels. It now also only comes in one colour; Pearl White.
Next there’s the Chief Vintage (bagger) with its beautiful fringed leather saddlebags and seats, and quick-release windshield
(all as standard) making this the option for those who plan to ride on extended road trips. Four colours are available with one
of these being new for 2016.
The Chieftain (bagger) has a large fairing with a power-adjustable windscreen (to offer superb cruising comfort), genuine
leather seats and hard saddlebags with remote central-locking. It’s available in four colours in 2016 with two of these new.
Finally there’s the Chief Dark Horse. This is the most striking cruiser on the market. It is matte black from end-to-end with
only a few flashes of chrome (accessories are available to fully blacken it out). This bike makes a statement even before you
fire it up. It looks intimidating, but its low seat height and balance makes it very easy to swing a leg over and ride, plus it’s
the best entry point to ride a Thunder Stroke 111 powered Indian Motorcycle. Propelled by 139Nm of torque and the same
chassis and suspension from the award-winning Chief Classic, the Chief Dark Horse rolls with ABS, a remote key fob for
keyless ignition and electronic cruise control.
The colour options for all of the Chief models this year are:
Pearl White – NEW
Star Silver and Thunder Black – NEW
Silver Smoke – NEW
Chief Dark Horse
Thunder Black Smoke
The Roadmaster is available in five colour options with three of these new:
Storm Grey and Thunder Black – NEW
Pricing and availability for all MY16 models: MSRPs and availability dates will be communicated regionally on a country-by-country basis.
All models have ABS as standard and come with a 5-year warranty.
All models can be now equipped by EU certified accessory exhausts made by Remus for an even throatier sound.
