The Indian

From its beginnings in 1901, the Indian Motorcycle Company has had many incarnations. Closing, reopening, changing hands, the Indian has seen several incarnations, the most recent started shipping out new Indians in 2008. Indianís legendary durability and power characterize the new Indian brand as much as the old. For example, the new Indian Chief has a brand new engine, developed by the Indian Company, which is fuel-injected with computer control, a completely redone 105ci Power Plus V-twin motor, the classic 45-degree V-twin. The size of this new motor is 1720cc, which is larger than the old format, but the engineís appearance is very similar to the original. With an Indian, you get history.

Modern Indian Chief Features include a 6 speed Power Plus 105 engine, air-cooled. Engine displacement is 1720cc, or 105 cubic inches. Fuel is delivered through a closed loop sequential system, with port fuel injection. The chassis frame is made from high tensile steel. Suspension in the front is 41mm, traveling 108mm; in the rear is a single shock, traveling 73mm. The brake systems floating rotors have a dual caliper in the front, single in the back and both have a diameter of 11.5mm

The Indianís seat height of 27.89 inches before sitting makes it easy to control the GVW of 728 pounds. It is driven by a chain drive with a final drive belt. The Exhaust system is two-into-one stainless steel with chrome shields. Mounted on the gas tank the rider will find an analog speedometer and a multi-function digital display. The Indian has a chromed teardrop-shaped headlamp, a glass front fender light, as well as auxiliary spotlights.

Short fenders are standard, but you can get longer fenders for an extra fee. These mimic the old-style full skirts of the classic Indian. Laced wheels are standard; billet wheels extra. Black leather is standard, but red or tan leather is slightly more expensive. Riders can order fringe extra, too.

The Indian has a Power Plus 105ci engine, which is an air-cooled pushrod engine. It uses a closed loop, sequential port injection with heated oxygen sensors and a six-speed transmission. The Indian uses the popular Bremboģ brake system, with dual floating rotors and 4-piston calipers in the front, and a single floating rotor with 2-piston caliper on the rear wheel.
