Motorcycles’ newest owner itself The Guardians of the Jewel. that sounds a little as can be seen by the positive comments to posting, Indian has such a following and loyal fan base they are probably not too far off. At one Indian and Harley-Davidson fought it out for of the open highways, and the Chief led the

Featuring the iconic full-fenders and styling, the Indian Chief is a American classic. According to article. Indian says the images being shown on site of the ’09 Chief is not a accurate view of the production Still, they go on to add that it is a good depiction of the classic and direction our designers are taking.

Looking over the pictures. we see that the bike is instantly as a Chief, which is a good but it is a bit derivative of past designs although purists are sure to out that this is not necessarily a choice.

Also, it looks like added an extra disc up front, much needed And the rear light assembly different.

This is essentially the same that Gilroy Indian building in 2004. I have a Chief Deluxe, there about 2,200 bikes between 2003-2004 (they down midway in 04).

What a shame. in its heyday were top notch because were innovative and fast bikes. but this chrome-laden isn’t going to win anything. sad to see they went the Harley selling a copy of a copy of the old design instead of dropping the V-twin clichà and coming up a truly innovative bike can compete with -all- That’s why the Japanese manufacturers are the market now, you know.

But didn’t, and because of that will fail like

If you don’t see the equity in an iconic an American iconic brand, here’s a primer. Mustang, Camaro, HD, all names that suffered and just barely and are now back in force.
