Polaris revs up plans for Indian motorcycles

Author:

Medina, Minn.-based Polaris Industries Inc. displayed its 2013 Indian Chief Vintage Final Edition at the International Motorcycle Show in Minneapolis this past weekend, the Star Tribune reports. According to a news release, the tribute bike was "designed to commemorate the end of one era in motorcycling, and the beginning of another." Only 25 Indian Chief Vintage Final Edition bikes will be made.

The newspaper says Polaris will introduce a fully redesigned Indian motorcycle this fall.

“We are working hard designing and building the new Indian Motorcycle, but we knew it was important to honor and celebrate the long and proud heritage of Indian Motorcycle, and the Kings Mountain era played a key role in that continuing history,” Steve Menneto, Vice President of Motorcycles at parent company Polaris Industries, said in a news release.

Forbes says Indian has a five-model lineup for 2013, which includes the Chief Classic, Chief Dark Horse, Chief Vintage, Chief Vintage Limited Edition and Chief Vintage Final Edition.

Polaris acquired the 112-year-old iconic American brand in 2011. The power-sports giant wants to compete with Harley-Davidson and have 150 Indian dealers set up across the United States and Canada by the end of 2014.
