I visited the new Indian dealership today in Pompano Florida. I was impressed with the building design and curb appeal. When I entered it was like entering a mini HD showroom. It was inviting and bright with some Indian apparel and a few old Indians on display. A 47, a 41 and I think a 37 were on the floor.
Almost every new Indian on the show room had a sold sticker on it. The Harley's that were traded in and put in the parking lot for used inventory looked dated compared to the new Chiefs. These bikes are stunning and different than the previous Indian models. Fit and finish are as good as any new HD. The detail on the motors bits and pieces were definitely not overlooked. When one was started you couldn't help but grin. The motor is smooth and the exhaust note about perfect. When I sat on the Chieftain it fit me better than my Cross Country. I only wish I had the time for a demo ride as they offer them daily. Best I didn't being on the clock. All I could think of was how I could get one of these in my garage next to my XC.
The Chieftain is the big winner here IMHO but the Vintage is as cool as it gets for an old classic look. I can hardly wait and see what Polaris has coming down the road for both their MC lines. By the way this dealer states that Victory will be sharing the floor with these Indians in the very near future. Great Idea cause it looks like there in need of additional inventory. From what I see these Indians are priced to sell and that's what seems to be happening in this dealership.
