I'm surprised there's any meat left on that corpse it's been picked over so many times.



Too bad we can't hook a generator to the tail end of the Springfield Indians, they're spinning in their graves so fast we could power half of Massachusetts

Now that's a mean thing to say and politically incorrect as well. You should be ashamed.

Skeptics aside, these types of companies bring back the dead. Remember that Texas holding group? They brought Ducati back from the brink. Maybe these guys can do positive things with a once great motorcycle company name. Don't expect the clone thing to last too long. They know that the consumer won't allow for it.

I wish them luck.. Looks like government is pitching in to help. At best a great name is restored.. At worst 100 or so folks get job retraining and jobs for a couple of years.. and some rich folks in England can write off the losses.. made with the government subsidies.. Sorry if I sound sarcastic but this country's middle and working class is in trouble...GM, Ford, etc

I think the big difference is that Ducati has a unique line of products. The last Indian was a total joke but that didn't stop the owners and employees from drinking the koolaid.



I had a conversation with an employee who tried so hard to convince me the motor was unique and they even had "proprietary brake calipers!" Woo Hoo!



Indian went out of business in 1953. I just don't think the name has that much value anymore. Chris Craft might be a different story.

Those guys at Chris-Craft are going to want a raise when they see what Indian's paying.Whats the differance between an S&S engine in an Indian or a Volvo in a Chris-Craft? About $7.00 an hour!!
