2016 Indian Motorcycles

Indian Motorcycle has released its 2016 lineup for the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East, Africa), which includes new finishes and color schemes across all models – the Scout, the Chief Classic, the Chief Vintage, the Chief Dark Horse, the Chieftain and the Roadmaster. Expect the same changes in America.

The ’16 Indian motorcycles arrive after a record-breaking year of sales that resulted from a huge demand for the Polaris Industries-owned brand’s newest models – the Scout, Chief Dark Horse and the Roadmaster.

Indian Motorcycle expects sales growth throughout 2016, especially from the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) area.

Dario Baraggia, EMEA Motorcycle Brand Manager, says “It seems like yesterday that Polaris re-launched Indian Motorcycle at the end of 2013,” says Dario. “And now we are launching a MY16 range with six award-winning motorcycles that have been enjoyed by a high number of customers in just two years of sales. The design, the technology, the quality and the riding capabilities of each Indian Motorcycle really do give riders a unique experience.”

The Medina, Minn.-based Indian Motorcycle has yet to release the final prices for the 2016 cruiser motorcyles. Following are the official highlights of each model in the 2016 Indian Motorcycle Lineup:

There has been huge demand for this middle-weight cruiser in the EMEA region. With its compact design, low 643mm seat height and ABS as standard, the Indian Scout is the perfect multipurpose bike for any rider. Its liquid-cooled 1133cc V-twin engine has a usable 100hp of performance and a sound that will bring a smile to your face every time you ride.

2016 Indian Scout Colors:

  • Wildfire Red – NEW
  • Thunder Black
  • Thunder Black Smoke
  • Silver Smoke
  • Indian Motorcycle Red

2016 Indian Chief Models: Chief Dark Horse, Chief Classic, Chief Vintage, Chieftain

The Chief lineup of 2016 Indian motorcycles features the proven Thunder Stroke 111 (an air-cooled version is on the Chief Dark Horse, Classic and Vintage), but each model has its own character and style.

Riders can opt for the Chief Classic (cruiser) with its classic looks, much cleaner now following some re-work carried out for 2016: solo vinyl seat, black switches, single headlight and cast aluminum wheels. It now also only comes in one color; Pearl White.

Next there’s the Chief Vintage (bagger) with its beautiful fringed leather saddlebags and seats, and quick-release windshield (all as standard) making this the option for those who plan to ride on extended road trips. Four colors are available with one of these being new for 2016.

The Chieftain (bagger) has a large fairing with a power-adjustable windscreen (to offer superb cruising comfort), genuine leather seats and hard saddlebags with remote central-locking. It’s available in four colors in 2016 with two of these new.

Finally there’s the Chief Dark Horse. This is the most striking cruiser on the market. It is matte black from end-to-end with only a few flashes of chrome (accessories are available to fully blacken it out). This bike makes a statement even before you fire it up. It looks intimidating, but its low seat height and balance makes it very easy to swing a leg over and ride, plus it’s the best entry point to ride a Thunder Stroke 111 powered Indian Motorcycle. Propelled by 139Nm of torque and the same chassis and suspension from the award-winning Chief Classic, the Chief Dark Horse rolls with ABS, a remote key fob for keyless ignition and electronic cruise control.
