While we were wandering the floor of AimExpo 2017 in Columbus, Ohio we found some of the most badass motorcycles. Among them? There were plenty to be seen at Indian's booth. Just one look at these bad boys and even a non-rider would want to slip on a helmet and go for a ride.
So which ones did we like most at TheStreet? I must admit, with parents who rode a Harley Davidson (HOG - Get Report), I tend to gravitate toward bikes with nostalgia. And as a woman with a small stature, I also lean to midsize, low rise with great control and easy maneuverability. And of course, it's gotta be packed with cool features. So my favorite was without a doubt the Indian Scout Bobber.
Indian Scout Bobber
This ride gives a nod to the 1920's iconic Scout. It's stripped down with shortened fenders and blacked out. It's a good move for Polaris Industries (PII - Get Report), Indian's parent company, to attract a younger generation of riders. You might recall when Indian got into motorcycles in 2014 the bikes were touring bikes and cruisers. They had saddlebags and big windshields. The Scout has none of that! They dropped the bags, it's stripped down and looks like it is ready for a run through New York City. I'm ready. Are you?
Chieftain Dark Horse, Indian Roadmaster Elite
For more great picks we caught up with Kevin O'Reilly, Vice President of Marketing for Indian. He gives us a full rundown of the Indian Scout Bobber, Chieftain Dark Horse and the Indian Roadmaster Elite. There's a motorcycle for everyone, price points ranged from $11,000 to $37,000.
