The latest line-up of Indian Motorcycle for India sees the addition of three new bikes as well as new feature enhancements
Polaris-owned Indian Motorcycle set foot in India in 2014 and since then has been offering motorcycles brought in as direct imports via the CBU route. Now the American retro bike manufacturer has revealed its line-up for 2021 which will be made available in India shortly.
New Bike Additions
The American brand has added Roadmaster Limited, Vintage Dark Horse and Scout Bobber Twenty to its India portfolio. This upcoming range of motorcycles from the company is said to be laced with next level technology in addition to a robust suite of new accessories options for customers.
Retailed only across eight dealerships across the country, Indian Motorcycle is one of the most premium motorcycle brands in India where each product is brought via the CBU route. This is expected to continue for the next few years as well. As per Lalit Sharma, Country Manager, Polaris India Pvt Ltd., the new line-up for the Indian market incorporates several new additions and upgraded features which will attract a larger audience.
2021 Lineup for Indian Motorcycle in India
The 2021 lineup for Indian Motorcycles is spread across three ranges- Thunderstroke, PowerPlus and Scout. The Scout family consists of models such as be Indian Scout, Indian Scout Bobber, & Indian Scout Bobber Twenty.
Motorcycles featured in the cruiser segment include Indian Chief Vintage Dark Horse and Indian Chief Vintage. Indian Chieftain Limited, Indian Chieftain Dark Horse, Indian Springfield and Indian Springfield Dark Horse make up the bagger segment of Indian motorcycles.
Touring segment of the retro American bike brand features Indian Roadmaster, Indian Roadmaster Dark Horse, Indian Roadmaster Limited. In addition to this, the India portfolio also features Champion FTR 1200 S, Champion FTR 1200 S Race Replica and Challenger series.
Indian Motorcycle will introduce its BS6 compliant range in the country starting from December this year. The first lot of models to be introduced will belong to the Scout family, bagger segment and touring segment of Indian Motorcycles. The updated Challenger series of motorcycles will be launched in January 2021.
New Colour Schemes
The Scout lineup of 2021 will receive a fresh set of colour schemes which will further enhance the style and lines of the bikes. Both Indian Scout Bobber and Indian Scout Bobber Twenty get new additional new colours like Stealth Gray and Maroon Metallic Smoke on respective bikes. According to the company, these new colours accentuate the aggressive, low profile look that riders associate with Indian Scout motorcycles.
The 2021 lineup also witnesses some feature enhancements, especially in the Roadmaster range. The touring segment now gets Apple CarPlay as standard across the entire range, while Roadmaster Dark Horse and Roadmaster Limited bikes receive an all-new feature namely Clima Command Rogue heated and cooled seat with Ride Command integration.
With technology enhancements and new accessory packages for riders to choose from, the brand aims to offer a lot more value for the hefty sum of money one actually has to pay. With Harley Davidson quitting India, it might be a right time for Indian Motorcycle to put the pedal down and expand across the country.
However, it seems unlikely at least for the next two years. Currently, Indian Motorcycle retails its products in India at New Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Cochin and Hyderabad.
