All their dealerships will have on display the entire range of Indian Motorcycles which have been launched in India. These include Indian Roadmaster, Indian Chief Classic, Indian Chief Vintage, Indian Chieftain, Indian Chief Dark Horse, Indian Scout and now Indian Scout Sixty.

Being an entry level motorcyle in the Indian range, new Scout Sixty is expected to bring in more sales to the brand. This will help them achieve their aim of capturing 15% market share this year. If this is made possible, it also means that Indian Motorcycle will register a growth of 45-50% this year in the country.
