Indian Motorcycle Company Shuts Its Doors

IMCTU-logos-lg.jpg

Five years into its attempt to revive the Indian Motorcycle brand, апошняя ітэрацыя індыйскіх матацыклаў Узначаліў для шчаслівай палявання. Гилрой, Каліфарнійская кампанія абвясціла аб сваім намеры зачыніць свае дзверы ў пятніцу, верасень 19, 2003, пасля няўдалай спробы атрымаць неабходнае фінансаванне для працягу дзейнасці.

аб'яву прыходзіць 50 года пасля першай індыйскага матацыкла кампаніі спынілі сваю дзейнасць і праз пяць гадоў пасля таго, як бягучы аб'ект быў створаны.

Заява была зроблена амаль усе, уключаючы нас саміх, знянацку. Кампанія нарэшце-то здавалася, што робіць прагрэс, заснаваны на сустрэчы мы мелі з ёй як раз за тыдзень да. It has sold 13,000 motorcycles with rather impressive price tags, about 4500 of them in the last year. And it had just showed us its 2004 мадэлі, which seemed to have finally moved out of the realm of the Harley clone.

We no longer have to apologize or explain our motorcycles, Fran O’Hagan, Indian’s executive vice president, told us.

The 2004 models were built almost entirely of components designed by and built for Indian. Only the engine’s Harley pattern kept it from being a completely original motorcycle. With all the proprietary parts, Indian anticipated greater reliabilty, more streamlined manufacturing, and significantly better performance. Most 2004 models were also to see sharp price reductionsin the neighborhood of $1000.

There was a new model, the Scout Two ten, named for its wider rear tire, which we rode briefly and were generally impressed by.

The conditions that enabled the current owners to get rights to the Indian motorcycle name may have also contributed to its undoing. The court that gave it to them ordered that it produce a significant number of motorcycles almost immediately. У выніку, those first Indians were little more than Harley clones built by CMC with wide, deep fenders and a couple of Indian logos. The company had been trying to build a motorcycle using its own parts in the five years since.

It looked like it was about there. аднак, spokemen said that trying to manufacture motorcycles and fund development of future products turned out to be beyond its financial ability. The financing that fell through was reportedly in the eight-digit range.

The company employed just under 400 employees, who were told that it was over on Friday.
