How to Begin the Motorcycle Purchasing Process

The digital checklist will allow you to begin the purchasing process for an Indian Motorcycle before you enter the dealership. Use the digital checklist to submit a trade-in for evaluation, get pre-qualified for financing or explore protection and service plans. You can complete as many of these steps as you want, and your dealer will automatically be notified with each completed step of the digital checklist.

To begin the trade-in process with Polaris Xchange, you must first select the bike you wish to purchase from the Indian Motorcycle current offerings. Once you've begun the purchasing process, you can submit your trade-in for an evaluation. The form will ask a number of questions about the type and condition of the vehicle and offer a potential value based on the given information. The dealer you selected will receive this information and reach out to you with the contact information you provided.

Once you have selected your vehicle and submitted a price request or used the customization tool to build your new vehicle, scroll down the page and select START BUYING PROCESS.
