New 2017 Indian Range
New 2017 Indian Range Released
Back in 1901, Infotainment on a motorcycle probably consisted of wiping the flies from your screen or out of you mouth.
Fast forward a Century and a bit, and as far as Indian Motorcycles are concerned, it’s all about touch screen technology!
Ride Command™ Infotainment System On Chieftain And Roadmaster Models.
“Fat Skeleton Asks just where will it all end?? Probably stuffed into the rear of a Ford Mondeo as you fiddle with all these features ??” At least it’s not linked with Facebook yet, as it would be quite embarrassing to tell your insurance company you were liking this weeks hottest Funny Cat video as you ran the red light (OMG-LOL-WTF-Crunch etc. etc.)

As for the Bikes themselves:
Fat Skeleton says "Expect sterling price increases all around as the £ has been hammered by Brexit to the tune of 15% as I write this. Prices in the Press release below are in $ but I’d imagine it’s a safe bet to simply swap with a £ sign as a pretty close price guide".
