Polaris CEO Speaks about Better and Cheaper Indians

With Indian's comeback being one of the most interesting things to be expected in 2013, a lot of customers are wondering how will the new bikes REALLY be. After long years during which Indian stood more for heavyweight cruisers with heavyweight prices than for the performance which made them famous back in the day, Polaris CEO Scott Wine hints us a bit on what's to come.

For starters Wine stresses that the new Indian bikes will not be derived from the successful Victory cruisers. Some feared this would happen because both Indian and Victory brands are owned by Polaris and could have been a lot easier doing such a move.

The new Indians are intended to compete directly with the Harley-Davidson machines and show massive ties to those of yore. Wine also notes that the last Indians were heavy and slow and too expensive... so we might expect faster, lighter and cheaper, or at least that's what we get from his words.

At the same time, the dealership network will receive a lot of attention as it clearly needs some reinvigorating policies and Polaris is looking forward to rebuild a strong and proud community of Indian motorcycle fans.
