We Are Indian Motorcycle

We’re proud to be America’s First Motorcycle Company. In 1901, two fearless trailblazing innovators — George M. Hendee and Oscar Hedstrom — founded America’s first motorcycle company: Indian Motorcycle. They started by taking a risk and going all-in on something entirely new and unheard of to most Americans — the motorcycle. Their passion lives today at the core of our brand with a simple yet powerful vision.
