Default New Indian Line Up - All About Colors

Same as the new Victory line up this new model year; the Indian has some new colors but that's about it.

Cyril Huze has a good first look at them.

I saw that. Does it seem a little too big to you too?

I'm at the dealer show and did the training session. It's so slick - literally leaps and bounds above H-D. The reaction time and screen sensitivity are very impressive.

Still takes your eyes off the road longer than a button or dial. If this is what is important to you about motorcycling, go for it, but there's a reason I ride a Cross Roads and the only bike I'd replace it with is the Springfield. Don't even want tunes, just a motorcycle, me and the road. That's entertainment enough for me for 64 years of riding.

2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.

Yea I hear you. But the fact is that most Bagger and touring purchasers want the "screen." We have had a number of people in the dealership walk away from a purchase because of it. I'm just happy to see how much effort Polaris put into the functionality. There is literally no comparison between this system and the H-D system. We have always offered a superior product in terms of ride, handling and powertrain but lacked in the fairing technology department. Not the case anymore.

But to your point if you press the center button then the Indian logo comes up and remains on the screen specifically because of comments they received about distraction. And if you hold the button in for 2 second then the screen goes completely dark but turn by turn voice prompts still work. And they kept the non-screen setup on the Chieftain Dark Horse.

Here's a nice Springfield for you. I love it myself. So classy.

I don't need a screen either... All I need is music. You can offer turn by turn NAV without a screen. From a marketing stand point though, Indian did the right thing.
