What a crock o sh*t....that dead horse ain't gonna' take too many more whacks for it turns to mush.

Just for fun how about some real innovation, like putting the final drive on the right hand side and enclosing it, maybe a neo-girder front end like a real Injun... of course then you'd need to like design something instead of doing the catalog custom trip...

Better yet, why not design a complete bike like Triumph or Victory did? There's your business model, you could copy a 1st edition Kawasaki Concourse, maybe a ZX10 and have a relitivly modern Indian instead just churning out the same ol crap that every other ass hole has churned out trying to pick a few chunks off what is a truly rotten corpse? better yet quit embarressing yourself and everyone involved with this excersise in futility and just go away.

Y'all have it all wrong! They are actually cloning the Polaris Victory and adding deeply valanced fenders and stuff.

I liked this gem: The closed loop sequential port fuel injected powerplant is claimed to put out 100 lb-ft of torque, but Indian admits that this initial projection is still arbitrary. That's a fine way to say: "we're just making **** up."

The ultimate fight of the King Kongs of the Motorcycle World, this and a Harley. Is one of them going to break the much feared 64 rwhp limit? Awesome.

I'd like to see them make a modern version of the older board racers, now that'd be cool.

So over $30k for a HD clone... well i think the engine looks cool but who in the hell would pay $30k for that?!

Except in this case the Harley will be half the price of the competitor.

When was the last time you were able to say the Harley was the better priced product?!

Not only that - it's almost certainly the more-RELIABLE product in this case as well!
