Indian's NEW sound...

Maybe old news for some but I found this link on the exhaust note for the new upcoming Indian engine on Polaris' website and thought I'd share and get opinion? To me it sounds Harley-ish at idle and ferrari-ish at speed so this could be a nice engine as long as it has upwards of 105HP/120 torque out of the crate. Any less and Polaris won't be able to charge the premium that they would need to get out of it IMHO

It sounds like a nice v twin. Nothing overly amazing. Hopefully good power.

If the sound of the exhaust is the best they have got, I don't give them too long to be like the other indian buy outs. Looking for another buyer.

Any of you heard about the 152cu Ilmor V-twin engine from Viper Motorcycle Co? I saw it @ one of the local drag events here @ Z-Max speedway. That would be a nice fit for the next Indian. Built on current technology with 2 huge slugs beating up and down

Just saw a 2010 Indian today, the owner said he was afraid that Polaris would do a 'Ness' to Indian and ruin it.... his bike was BEAUTIFUL.

I'd trade my CrossRoads in a heartbeat if I was going by looks alone, I have no idea how they compare mechanically....

...I have to imagine they are a lot more expensive than mine.

I didnt hear it skipping like and HD, i thought it sounded killer!
I have faith in Polaris doing right by it....I believe they will keep it as pure as they possibly can....they already have Vic to do all the innovative and different things with..
