Indian Scout Sixty
À partir de 10 999 $ PDSF (CA)
2019 Indian Scout Sixty Thunder Black is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 387.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Bike ! Great overall bike for the money, was looking to by a Harley. Hadn't thought Indian was an option . So I was at a Polaris Dealership to see a Harley Sportster 48 tricked out ... needless to say I saw all the amazing Indians on the showroom floor. So like many others I suspect I went home that night and researched quite a bit . I looked up Indian motorcycles , their history , who's owned them and pretty much every motor and bike ever made . When I was done researching I was a complete fan of Indian , trials, ups, downs, everything ... they've really hung in there . I love my new scout !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ride I purchased my 60 at the end of May and have put almost 4 thousand miles on it thus far. It has been everything I expected and more. Almost every day someone stops to chat with me about the bike and complement me on it. I was concerned about the power for two up riding, but it has been great and has plenty of power for two adults. The rear suspension could use some more travel for two up, but that would be my only feedback. Looks great and runs awesome. How much more could you ask for. Could use some more accessory offerings for it though and the name badge coming standard over the front wiring harness might help grab a few more buyers eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too much fun!! Purchased my Indian Scout Sixty in late July 2016. The motorcycle is an absolute blast to ride! Don't let it's diminutive size fool you. It has plenty of power and handles easily. On the highway the bike holds its own, though I will probably be in the market for a windshield in the future. One downside is the stock seat. I found it very uncomfortable. After the initial break in period the bike developed a very small anti-freeze leak which the dealer repaired. Other than that, no issues whatsoever. IT is just too much fun!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Bike, not really for long touring I drooled over this bike since introduction, took a demo days ride, and a year later finally traded in my Harley Fat Bob for it. It's lighter, lower, and more powerful, handles much better, and most days of the year is going to be a superior bike in nearly every way. Where does it fall short? Touring. Getting this up past 65mph on the highway and the bike doesn't ride straight as an arrow, it's whipped around easier in the wind, and takes more attention to keep it straight. Not bad on a commute or day ride, but I wouldn't want to deal with it on a long tour. Tires or suspension swap might help alleviate it, but in the meantime it's not a deal breaker since I ride it every day possible, not just for touring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's definitely an experience You ever just want something and don't know why? I have a lot of Harley friends and will never talk poop or fight over which is better. I've always wanted an Indian and I don't know why. I always figured that since they're collectibles, I'd never afford it. Then they rebooted them and I'm thinking, I'll never be able to afford that either....until I walked into the dealership and actually started talking numbers. I didn't intend to buy right now but I did. The dumbest thing I could do because I had a nice v-star that I was satisfied with, and it was paid off!...but you know how it is, you want something and you just have to have it. LOL I'm hardly ever impulsive but what the heart wants, the heart wants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest bike built!! I bought this bike a month ago for my wife. She is 5'3" and she loves the balance and sportyness of the Scout. I am 6'2" and I even love riding it around when I don't feel like getting my Cheiftain out. This is not only a great starter bike but is perfect for all riders beginner or expert.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first bike.... This is the first bike I have owned, and so far I am pretty happy with my purchase. My only concern is the front seems to take bumps pretty hard and bangs. For reference I am 6' and 195 so I feel pretty average size. I don't know if the springs are too much for my weight?? I find the exhaust to be way too quiet, I have already modified it with louder mufflers. The bike has attitude, why not match the exhaust tone to accent it? Overall for my first bike it seems pretty good but I have no basis for comparison.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2017 scout I bought the bike in January and awaiting my membership packet and IMRG membership. Im in MA so the weather has been poor but did manage to get in a couple of rides. The bike rides well and true with plenty of power. I waxed the bike before riding,but simply driving on city streets I picked up a couple of paint chips on the fender so Im leery of the soft paint issues Ive read about on line. Also the horn is poor, quickly replaced with a stebel. Slip ons are next as the stock is kind of moped-like. not many OEM accessories such as a narrow tank bib. Floor boards have been on backorder. My dealer MOMs Revere MA has been great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Cruiser I bought my Sixty in Sep of 2016. I have been riding for over 50 years and it ties for the motorcycles I have loved the most of over thirty motorcycles I've owned. The other bike was a 1974 Norton Commando. I bought the 60 because of LACK of stupid features on bikes today. Keep it simple! The only mod has been a performance air filter from K&N. Did that make a difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 62 year old first time rider I was committed to buy American and am familiar with the Indian legacy. So, after looking at a bunch of very fine H-Ds, I chose the Indian Scout 60. To me it represented the best value comparing price, engine size, and standard features. All my H-D rider friends have been very impressed. They almost always comment on the torque - they're very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a Harley..Sorry Harley I traded my Ducati in for an Indian Sport Sixty. Loved my Ducati! It brought me the distance flat and fast. Then I saw the Indian Sport Sixty and fell in love with the style, balance and size. It is Now my New love, relaxed and cruising along. The Indian Is Not front heavy like the Harley cruisers and doesn't vibrate in the handle bars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from White Lightning! You know you made the right decision to purchase a bike when you not only can't stay off the bike because is so much fun to ride, but you find yourself going in the garage and just staring to the point that your wife starts making fun of you! Can't help it, the Scout 60 is by far one of the sweetest machines I've had, very satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for I'm 5' 7", slight build, and had been looking for an upgrade from my Vstar 650 for about 5 years. Everything was too honkin' big and heavy (and expensive). I thought I'd never find the perfect bike for me. TaDaa! Out rolls the Indian Scout Sixty. This one was jussst right! Not too heavy, plenty of power, plenty of styling and at a great price. I always loved Indian Motorcycles but they were just too big for me. Thank you Indian for thinking of us smaller riders.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good, starts, runs, fun to ride, turns heads I have always wanted an Indian Scout since I saw the Wall of Death when I was a kid back in the fifties, I'm 72 now. I am not disappointed, I have spent over a quarter of a million bucks on motorcycles in my lifetime and very grateful to finally ride a Scout. I want to thank Polaris for their vision.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Bike The bike is nice. It is easy to handle. I am 5'3" and can hold the bike up easily. I did have a leaky gasket but warranty is covering that, however it does seem like it takes an unusually long amount of time to get it to the shop (could be the shop or Polaris, I'm not sure). Aside from the gasket, the bike handles well, but do to its weight, it does get a little shaky in the wind. I really like the bike itself and would recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied Customer I am very happy with this bike. It is quick and nimble and well balanced. With the weight being mostly at the bottom of the bike it feels very light. I have owned several bikes from Honda, Suzuki among others and this bike is my my favorite. I was also very impressed with the salesman and service at Indian Motorcycle of Southeastern Virginia, they are top notch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously great looking and fun to ride! My first cruiser after 20 years of riding Sport/Standard bikes, most of them with larger engines. I was pleasantly surprised with the handling and power delivery of the Sixty! Great seating position - I got used to the low riding foot forward position in about 15 minutes ... I love every moment of my ride and I get compliments wherever I ride :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Much Fun! I purchased the Scout Sixty two weeks ago from Indian Motorcycle of Southeastern Virginia (awesome dealer experience, thank you Maria, Dave and Ed)! I was considering an Iron 883 for a first bike, but for me there was no comparison between the two. The Scout Sixty is a comfortable, easy to handle bike with plenty of power, and gorgeous styling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome bike for the price Was looking for something in the sportster range price wise and was sset on a Harley. After Indian announced the Scout 60 I checked one out. Its smooth. Shifts great, has a ton of power and has many ways to customize. Extra features like bigger engine, smooth ride, great display full of info, and the classic Indian style sold me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bike! I purchased my Indian Scout Sixty at the end of February and bonded with her quickly. I've racked up 3000 miles in a little over two months and look forward to every ride. Plus, she turns a lot of heads. The dealership experience is excellent! After my purchase, I attended a Harley demo event and rode a 48. The Scout is soooo much more bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scout? Exactly! In my 38 years of riding other brands my only motorcycle shirts were for Indian Motorcycles. I could have had an Indian before this year but Mid-size Cruisers (900cc-1100cc) have always suited my riding style best. When the Scouts came out my first thought was, "Exactly!". Exactly the size I ride and wearing exactly the brand that had fascinated and impressed me since my youth! It was a tough choice between the two Scouts but the extra blacked out features made the Sixty the one. My Scout is the first bike I have owned where people in traffic roll down their windows to tell me how good my bike looks. It is not just a looker either as it easily out performs any of the five previous bike I have owned. Balance, power, performance, engineering.... the Scouts have it all! For as many days as God allows me to ride, they will be on my Scout Sixty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing value I bought my bike in April, it is my first proper bike (I have a 1976 yamaha trials bike at the cottage). I upgraded the seat to the 1920 style as many said the stock seat is not great. I'm glad I did it as it offers a more agressive seating postion. The bike has lots of power, shifting has become much smoother over the first 400km. It handles like a sport bike, looks amazing and stands out compared to my buddies who have Harleys (much faster as well btw). I am not crazy about the headlight - it shoud be a high output LED these days. The throttle surges in 1st and 2nd at slower speeds. Aftermarket fuel controllers apparently resolve this, but why could it not be fine-tuned from the factory? I will be adding a controller in the future. The exhaust is also big, heavy and quiet. Compared to competing brands, it could have been lighter and a bit throatier. All in all though, the bike is an amazing machine for the cost. I have no regrets buying the sixty over the bigger scout. For riding in and around Toronto, it is more than enough power and piles of fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Scout 60 I have been riding and racing bikes as long as I can remember. I have also owned everything from super sport bikes to the heaviest Harley cruiser; currently I own a Road King, a Can-Am ST spyder, and now my Scout 60. What I enjoy most about about the Scout is the clean lines, simplified style, and excellent handling (which is made better by the smooth power delivery of the stout 1000cc engine which has excellent power for what this bike is designed for). The Scout is light and easily managed by entry level riders but experienced riders will love how willing the bike is to lay into a corner and be ridden hard. I grin ear to ear every time I take it out of the garage! I only rated sound as 4/5 stars because the factory slip-ons are still very quiet but the actual exhaust note is very pleasing and I can't wait for more aftermarket exhaust options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pocket Rocket I test rode this bike at the demo ride in Denton, TX. This was pound for pound the most fun and fast bike Ive ridden in years. I am astonished at this 100hp hotrod marvel of engineering. It will get your heart pumping quickly with lightening acceleration and supeeior handling. This is a must for the sportbike kids who occasionally just want to switch to mid forward controls an a more relaxed stance. You can stiill go fast jn the twisties and turns but ride all day. This is a great bike for those smaller in staure. It was fun but too small for me. I am 6ft tall' 63 years old and I was a bit cramped. I'm still more of a big cruiser guy. The women at the demo and many younger men seemed to love this. machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bike I have ever owned! Took about 20 years off from riding motorcycles after riding since a little kid on all types of bikes. Went into the dealership to check out the new Indian models and after sitting on it and taking a comfortable ride I knew this was the bike for me. I put about 1,000 miles on it in the first month and that's riding on the island of Oahu!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing machine I am a beginner rider and desperately wanted a Scout, but with too much power, it wasn't a good starter bike for me. This new model could not have come at a better time! I have entered the Indian family on a bike that looks as good as any of its elders. I love it! Note: It's unfortunate the option of leather wrapped grips & levers is not available for this model

2019 Indian Scout Indian Motorcycle Red / Thunder Black (ABS) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 963.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Hoot! My 2016 Indian Scout is in one word Fun! It not only looks cool and is a real head turner, every time I stop at a gas station or store, there is always someone who is admiring the bike. It is a great conversation starter and I have met many old Indian riders curious about the new Indians. The Scout will put a smile on your face when you crank it up and ride. I find myself totally into the bike when I am riding, can't stop grinning and enjoying. It has power to spare, easy to control, you can flat foot it at stops. Indian really did it right in the design and execution of the Scout. Buy one, you won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding American cruiser I bought the 2015 Indian Scout to replace my '05 HD Sportster 1200 R. It has been a substantial upgrade in almost every way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome bike! I wish it had a gas gauge, and more after market options, a lot of accessories have come out for the other models of indians but not this one. I have a 27" inseam and this bike is my bagger. It would be great to have the option for cruise control or heated grips and a heated seat, or at least the ability to add it if I wanted it. This is also the first bike I've had that doesn't have a neutral safety switch which is weird to me since the other bikes have it. However just because I'm short and can't get a bigger bike with more options does not mean I don't love my scout! Hopefully some after market options are available soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Bike !!! I bought this bike on June 2nd 2017 after taking one for a test ride. I loved it and decided I had to have it. I traded in my Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic - Which was my first bike. I had it for seven years. This Indian Scout is so much better in balance and power and ride comfort. It is a rocket! I had a windshield, engine guards, floorboards, saddle bags, and stage one exhaust added to it. I Love This Bike. My face hurts from grinning so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of fun! I've had my Scout for a little over 14 months now, and it's a blast! I was surprised at how much lighter it felt than the Yamaha XSV1100 Custom I was riding since 2003, and how much more responsive it is..and all the compliments I get certainly don't hurt either!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Obsessed with my new 2016 Scout ABS I'm 250 miles into my break in period, and loving every twist and turn. Great balance, just the right amount of torque at the low end and more than enough in the upper end. Great fit for my 5'6" frame and 160# due to reduced reach bars and seat. Smooth gear shifting and more use for 6th than I thought. Breaks all good and like knowing that ABS is there. I added the mid size windshield which is just enough without hurting the overall look. Also had to have the backrest and saddlebags, which have less capacity than I hoped. Suspension is a bit hard in the rear end, so I'm still figuring that out. I added Bassani two in one pipes to try to move the heat away from my right knee, but it's still very hot. Pipes sound awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible bike. I took delivery of my bike in May of 2015- one month after earning my motorcycle endorsement. In late August of 2015, after putting a few thousand miles on the bike, I embarked with a partner on a 6,500 mile trip cross country, to take place in a two week period. Though I am a beginning rider, I had no issues getting this bike to perform flawlessly; through wind, high speeds, rain, mountains, etc. This brings me to the craziest point about this bike- it's so approachable! In addition, I found it incredibly comfortable- allowing for a best of 800 miles in a single day! I had to carry a considerable amount of supplies as we primarily tent camped. I did this without issue on the Scout. When I want performance out of my Scout, I simply crank that throttle and all I want is on tap. When I want a classic American cruiser that effortlessly glides over the rolling plains, well, I have that too- and so much more. I contemplated the possibility of moving up to a larger Indian Dark Horse, but I simply would have an impossible time letting go of the Scout. I am now a few months away from my one year anniversary with the Scout. 12,000 miles later I love it even more than the day I took it home! It is truly amazing to think how this piece of machinery has so massively enriched my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable I bought this bike as a birthday gift for my wife. Riding it home I was impressed by how comfortable the riding position was. I bought the bike because the low seat height would allow my wife to stand flat footed when she stopped. Because of this I expected the riding position to be cramped. It was anything but. Forward controls and great placement of the handlebars made for a very comfortable ride. The bike also handled very nimbly and had great power. Lots of torque, so you weren't shifting all the time. I recently bought a Roadmaster and absolutely love it. I might sneak the Scout out of the garage every once in a while just to blast around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ride it 'cause it's fun Purchased my 2016 Scout ABS in June of that year. Includes black bags, 2-up seating and a windshield. Wonderful joy-ride machine; a feisty little mare! And she's got the stiffest of frames. Weaknesses? The suspension is too soft/short for 2-up riding. I like it just fine when I'm alone, which is 99% of the time. I'm 5'6", 180, so I love the low seat, and rolling on that throttle is a thrill! Even 2-up, she just keeps on accelerating. Another weakness is the amount of vibration in the handlebars. But she's so much fun, I can't wait for spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A peppy fun scoot! I took a demo ride on this bike and it was a blast! I own a Chieftain, but was trying out the Scout as I looked for a short-distance commuter bike. My requirements were something small that I could ride on my short commute to and from work, about 20 miles, gas efficient, fun to ride, and a good corner carver. At 550lbs the bike was easy to hold up and maneuver. The 100hp and 72lbs of torque gave this bike all the power it needs to get you where you want to go quick and in a hurry, with great throttle response. The fact that its water-cooled is an added benefit when caught in city traffic. Overall, it a functional and fun bike that anyone would enjoy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sacagawea None of the fitment options are ideal (ie. Reduced/standard reach), poorly designed exhaust hot on leg at stop, transmission has a few issues with going into neutral when shifting from 5th to 6th, suspension - obviously, fuel capacity, tractor seat could use some spring and a sun/rain cover just for protecting the leather, turn signals move too much on rubber mounts, needs fork locks, needs helmet attachments, coolant level in reservoir needs better visibility (ie. Color or float...), and needs a small tool bag for under tractor seat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't say enough about the Scout! Got my 2018 Scout 69 on Sept. 15, 2018. It's April 8th, 2019 and I have over 7K on it! I got it with a 20" windshield, saddlebags, touring passenger seat, backrests and saddlebags. It has not let me down. It's rock solid, reliable, maneuverable, sporty, sharp-looking and classy; you'll stand out from the sea of black, "that other brand we shall not mention". I ride two-up with my wife all the time and this bike handles it perfectly. Have ridden through hilly, twisty roads and it has all the power I need. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I wish it vibrated less at 70 MPH and above. Otherwise, I would give it 5 stars!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Power Cruiser! Who Knew? I've had my Scout for a year and it has great performance and handling as well as being comfortable on longer trips. It even gets compliments from Harley riders. The one issue has been the less than optimal tires (switching to Michelins for this season) and front-end wobble in the wind. I had to add a steering head lock (only standard in Australia and maybe Europe) and finally found a security system that fit (Gorilla Series 9 Compact). I do miss the gear position indicator now on the 2016 model. Overall, it has been a very good bike. I also have a streetbike and a sports tourer, and the Scout holds its own despite being a cruiser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd give 10 stars if I could! I've had this bike for just over a year now, after purchasing sight unseen, and I absolutely could not possibly be happier! She's got power for days and, of course, with the legendary balance she handles like second nature. At 5'1, my Harley Sporty was too tall, with a sketchy center of balance, and my Honda Shadow Aero was grossly underpowered. Indian got this one just right! As great as this bike produces and handles, it looks even better! And with the gorgeous tan genuine Indian bags, I can easily have everything I need with me. Wherever I go, bike people flock to check er out. This is truly the motorcycle I've been waiting for all my riding life! Thanks Indian! I feel like this bike was custom designed just for me!:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looks + Great Build Quality = Great Ride! Had not planned on buying a bike in the Chicago area in late Nov 2016, but when I took a test ride on a Scout from Indian Motorcycle of Libertyville, IL I knew I had to buy it. I had owned a Harley Sportster 1200 Custom previously and the Scout is superior to the Sportster in ever way. Build quality is much higher on the Scout, the engine makes way more power, the transmission is light years ahead of the Harley and the Scout handles far better. Very satisfied with my Scout as well as the attention and great deal I received from the Libertyville dealership. Can't wait for Spring so I can start putting some miles on the bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Niiiiiceeeee... A beautiful and (mostly) wonderfully performing motorcycle. The only knocks are that the suspension is sub-par. The fork springs are way too soft, resulting in a slight wobble at freeway speeds. The rear shocks are not much better. Once those are replaced, there isn't much to criticize. It is a bit low. If you ride twisties, you'll scrape your pegs, but NBD. It's a matter of personal preference, I suppose, but for my taste, the cans are too large. It has more than adequate power. It would be nice to have an actual fuel gauge, and the pricing on accessories is just obnoxious. they'd sell more if they priced them better and would make up the difference in volume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bike! I have wanted an Indian motorcycle since I was a kid and I am thrilled to see what Polaris has done with the brand. They've done everything right and continue to improve year to year. My 2020 Scout ABS was built for me, from the handle bars to the forward pegs, it is a great fit and a comfortable ride. The attention to detail that has been put into this build is easily seen, even from a distance. It has the power to pass when needed, sounds great and looks like the Indian cruiser it was designed to be. I just can't say enough positive things about the Indian Scout ABS. I am really enjoying this bike and I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bike Best mid cruiser on the market. Handles great wet and dry weather. Not a fan of stock sound. The skys the limit on personal style options. This is a pass down the generations bike. Plus Indian motorcycle offers a riders group to show off and hit the high way with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to turn, snappy acceleration. Test rode the scout. Great turn in...It almost falls into the turn for you. Very little effort. Very easy to ride. Acceleration is great, it helps to be in the right gear...unlike the 111 engine that pulls in almost any gear. I'm 6'4" with a 34" inseam. This scout had the extended reach seat, but if it were mine, I'd get the extended reach foot controls as well. Gearbox is much better than I expected. Brakes and suspension work together flawlessly. Altogether great. I have no complaints about the bike. I just wish I were normal size..... Or that getting the proper seat and controls for my size was included in the MSRP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very, Very Fun Bike!! Purchased my Scout about a month ago and have grown to love it. It looks great, handles great, and the power is very pleasing. The next best thing to flying! The only criticisms I have, which are minor, are the somewhat stiff rear suspension and the "hard to read" dipstick. I'm going to try to adjust the rear shocks to soften the ride some. Suggest Indian source a dipstick that contrasts better with the color of oil. Perhaps a metal 'stick in a shade of light silver. My eyes aren't as good as they used to be. Otherwise, very happy with my purchase of the Scout, so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Scout! Demo ride in Laconia: I've always loved the design of the Indian machines, the Scout and Bobber have great styling lines, Scout has a rich blue tank color, tan seats, chrome pipes, great looking machines. Comfortable setup, soft seat and gripping the bars seemed like a perfect fit to my body, easy to hop on and ride away. Nice engine sounds, great power though the gears, sporty, it was a really fun ride. I found myself saying, “I really like this bike” multiple times, it’s a machine that stood out as a one I'd like to get. (5 stars for ditching the group ride demo setup!)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from BE AWARE THIS IS NOT A LEGIT CRUISER This bike is a mix of a sport bike - cruiser , is very unconftable in long trips for tall people , im 6''2 , and i hate it , bought a scout red over black here in monterrey mexico, on one 2 hour trip i had the worst back pain in my whole life, the bike is amazing for acceleration, handling and fuel consumption... but then again if i wanted that i would buy a sport bike , sold it ASAP after my first long trip , don't buy this thing is you are tall or want a pure cruiser , this product is for the typical sport bike guy getting transform into cruisers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2016 Indian scout Nice bike, but wish I would have waited for the 2017. The 2017 has better suspension and a tighter turning radius. The stock seat is like riding on a wooden plank, but a $275 mustang seat will allow you to ride for 250 miles instead of 25. If you're 150 pounds or less and want a light fast machine for short rides there is nothing better out there. If you're over 150 pounds and want to travel, plan to spend $2000 on a new seat, tires that don't suck in the rain, and front and rear suspension upgrades, or just buy a chief, because sooner or later you'll want to upgrade to one anyhow

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Middle Age Man's Crotch Rocket I took my bike home with a set of Vance & Hines Grenade exhaust installed and it was transformed into a rocket on 2 wheels. This thing is soooo fast and handles like a charm. By far the best street bike I've ever owned and the best looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a great Motorcycle. I only have 500 miles and own two scouts. The fit/finish and quality is amazing. I have had zero issues so far. Powerful, great sound, stiff ride, all metal construction. My only complaints are no place for registration storage and a pain to check the oil. . It is also easy to ride and my wife has one as a new rider. too. The power is amazing and this thing hauls if you want it too. Frankly I have not been over 4K RPM and that is when it comes alive. She learned very fast and the narrow stature makes it easy to learn. I have considered a larger bike, but the Scout fits my needs. It is a real head turner too. Get ready to be stopped a lot and asked about it. Finally, the redfire color is amazing. It is pure red with no sun and a glowing golden red when the sun hits it. My wifes is Indian red and it's nice, but the pop of the pearl in the redfire is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needs a few adjustments Upon riding for 2 weeks I realized a few misgivings. 1. The Kenda tires didn't exactly instill confidence. Replaced with Michelin Commanders. 2. Front spring rate was very soft. Replaced with new springs and emulators from Race Tech. 3. Although the saddle is beautiful it had to be replace because of pressure points on my tail bone.

Indian Scout Bobber
À partir de 13 999 $ PDSF (CA)
2019 Indian Scout Bobber Thunder Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 287.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Scout bobber I signed up for the demo ride at a local dealership with Indian factory test ride rig. Stock the scout bobber was a little soft in power delivery with firm feeling rear shocks and seat. Then I rode the scout bobber with modified intake and opened up pipes with fox shocks and comfort seat. The bikes engine response was crisp with smooth linier power. Handling was good suspension compliance with the fox shocks and stock forks was spot on. The brakes were strong with good rider feedback and the six speed gear box shifted cleanly with well sorted out gear ratios. Overall the modified bobber was a blast to ride.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from That darn seat!! I bought this bike about 6 months ago. From the very first ride home from the dealer, people were stopping me to ask about my bike. As other reviews have stated, it starts a lot of conversations. This bike has great power and looks. The only problem for me is the seat. After about an hour or two, my butt is cramped up and I can't wait to get home. There are after market seats available but they are expensive and the prices are rising fast. I suppose if Indian does not have alternative seat, I'll have to spend the money. After all, what's the use of having such a cool bike if I cant ride it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bike I ever owned Bought the bobber in February. It was the best decision I ever made to sell my Harley and buy a Indian. Bike is so smooth, plenty of power and incredibly good looking. Im 6'4" and after I installed the extended reach controls and the mini apes I fit perfect. The only complaint I have is the seat. After a hour the seat is extremely uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Demo Days Rider 8-30-19 Thunder White Smoke little bobber!! If you haven't had the joy of riding a Scout Bobber,Your missing out. My 2nd year riding in a Demo days and rode a lot more bikes this time. Springfield, FTR1200,Scout Bobber, Scout and Cheiftain.This bike I rode twice. Like them that much. These little bobbers are so agile and a complete BLAST to ride. Great power and handling. If my son ever starts riding(He wants too learn), Gonna make him buy one of these just so I can ride it too. ONLY reason I have a regular Scout is its 2-up, Which I need for the wife to ride with me. Only fault the bobber has is the seat is not as cushy as the regular Scout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike! My wife & I bought 2 Scouts this past February from Paul Blouin’s in Augusta, Maine. I love my bobber, smoke black, changed the exhaust to rinehart, & solo pan seat. My wife bought a Scout add bags & a windshield to hers. She loves the bike how it handles, ride & weight. I love the Bobber, performance, handling, & ride is awesome. Nice weight to handle too. Will extent the controls. And the exhaust sounds better than HD. We have owned Softails, Street Glide, Heritage, Electra Glide & Road King and I have to say this is the best bike I have owned, its not a touring bike but to ride on back roads, around town & to put 200 miles on a day it is great. I test rode all the Indians and went back to the Scout. Suits my needs well. Our dealership is great too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unreal appearance! Bought my Bobber in October and absolutely love it. I get compliments every time I ride it. The only thing I have been frustrated with is the difficulty in customizing it, which was a large part of the marketing for it. I just got the 10” apes and brake lines, and was never told I’d need new mirrors and grips. Haven’t exactly been pointed in the right direction for what mirrors and grips will work with the new handlebars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised HD Rider for Decades, never even considered an Indian. Caught in a YouTube Vortex and found the Scout Bobber. Test Rode the next day......and rode it home. Wild little Motor that REALLY comes to life over 5K in the Revs (odd for a twin) and goes to about 8K. That 100HP comes out up top and the 72 FPT gets it moving from a stop nicely. Love this little ripper and could not be happier.......Full Exhaust goes on tomorrow :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun/style/quality Great bike. Fun to ride and has great power. The fit and finish is quality. The sound stock is too quiet, but a stage 1 or Maverick Crushers fix that. The suspension is good out front but the rear is a bit harsh, feels well planted though. Plenty of aftermarket and factory accessories to make it your own. I've had fun doing that. Only wishes are: -fuel gauge -cruise control -factory fly screen for Bobber

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less is more I took part in a demo ride. I really enjoyed this bike. It is obviously not meant for touring. It is a very cool looking bare bones ride. It was easy riding. Had plenty of power when needed and easy to also just take it easy and cruise. The weight is low on the frame which I think makes cornering even easier. May not be as comfortable for a tall rider but easy to fix with mini ape handle bars. I would also recommend upgrading the exhaust. Indian offers affordable upgrades.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sexy in black, scratch that...plain sexy I bought this motorcycle at the end of September and I took my time making sure that I had the right experiences to make sure I gave the right review. First of all, as the title alludes, this bike is sexy. It gets looks everywhere. I've been stalked in Starbucks locations across the state. "Hey..is that your bike out there?" A long conversation usually ensues. Most common of the queries are from true motorcycle enthusiasts whom usually own Harleys. This bike gets looks, even from devoted fans of other brands. Lets talk positives. First of all, the reports of the engine being a beast are spot on. I do not find myself regretting this, in fact, a Scout 60 bobber would still be a sexy sexy beast if they ever came up with one. Just saying, but I am glad it came with the 69 because my riding style is all about fast accelleration then cruising at speed. This thing flies (when you let it). One time at a stoplight I accidentally let it rip a bit too hard, I think it was a "lean back and the grip rolled with it" kinda moment and had an instant torque yank that set be back in the saddle as far as my arms would let me. It startled me a bit, but I recovered. This isn't a toy. I have always wanted a power commander, so I bought one. Did it need more power, no. But I got one with the stock pipes just in case I wanted to change things up. I must say, throttle response and as far as I can tell thus far, fuel mileage has improved. Jury still out on mpg but the quality of the bike on a power commander is worth considering even if on stock pipes. I was worried about cornering. Fat tires, heavier and lower suspension bike than I have ever previously owned had me babying it. After a few rides, I realized that the only thing holding me back was me. I dont lay into turns or scrape pegs, but I do accelerate into turns and roll it over as much as I have on previous bikes. The mirror placement is perfect (upright) for me. I cannot see myself, as cool as it would look, putting the mirrors down. As far as ride quality, well, no bike is perfect. My riding style is more of a short cruise variety. My typical rides are around 30-50 miles around the "island" (I am in Hawaii). Occasionally I hit 70+ miles but that's the exception not the rule. I also do a lot of point to point riding on this bike, just getting around. Going to to the movies, coffee, dinner, meet friends in town. From literature, it appears that my type of riding is exactly the market, as far as riding style, they were looking for. However, I think they sucked it down just a tad to far in the comfort vs. look/cost tradeoffs. Perhaps others are fine with it, and generally I am the type of rider that adjusts me before I adjust the bike as I figure the engineers know better. But his being my 4th bike, 2nd brand new, i was disappointed in how uncomfortable the bike was off the floor. Almost from the first ride, I realized I needed to make some adjustments. First step was preload. That made a huge difference. I think many dealerships overlook this step, but when you buy it, have the dealership adjust the preload IMMEDIATELY for your use. That did not occur, perhaps because the shop was closed by the time my transaction was completed, but it didn't get done and the ride home was a bull ride. This is extremely important as we will discuss in the next section. The suspension system, although an improvement over the standard scout previous models, still is sub par (being kind). If your municipality is full of horrific rough roads as mine is, please do yourself a favor and plan to upgrade suspension from the get-go. The preload helped a ton, but occasionally there's a spine jarring bump that made me question my choice of bikes. Proper preload helps, I cannot stress this enough, but I will be investing in a better suspension system as soon as enough reviews come out to distinguish which will best fit my needs. The seat is uncomfortable. I struggle with this the most because that's possibly the most iconic eye catching item on this bike (aside from the bar end mirrors). The seat sets it apart from other Scout models and i fell in love with it at first sight. However, its not built for long rides. Can I make do with this seat, yeah. absolutely, But if you tend to sit on your bike longer than I do, you will definitely be looking for other options in this area. In this, every professional review I read on this seat was spot on. Best for tooling around town, not so much for long cruises. Indian, you should put together a "Bobber Pro" model with better brakes, shocks, and seat. I would have bought it in a heartbeat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from bad rear shocks rear facory shocks are horrible. im 6'1 237 lbs, and they bottom out even on smallest bumps.,now i see fox makes shocks for the rear, sold by indian, to help take care of this problem, why didnt they just put the fox shocks on to start with.. the way the bike is now its unbearable to ride..so my bike just sits till i have 900.00 dollars for the new shocks

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seat like a cinder block I wanted to ride a touring model but the wait was to long so I tried the Scout Bobber. My back still aches two days later. No spring in seat whatsoever. Hit a bump in the road and you're thrown several inches up out of the seat which could cause lose of control, not to mention like getting punched in the kidneys. I've ridden ridged frame bikes that were less harsh. When I mentioned this to sales rep he couldn't agree more with my riding impression. Other than a cruise around the block, I don't see many that would be up for any distance on this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best version of the Scout! This bike is the most beautiful "Bobber-style" bike out currently! Better looking than the Triumph Bobber or the Harley 48. It is plenty powerful and will satisfy your need for speed. I love my Scout Bobber and wouldn't trade it for anything. This bike is built to last. Everything on it is metal and solid feeling, none of that cheap plastic that the Japanese bikes have. Definitely has a premium feel to it. The only thing Indian could do better was improve the stock seat's comfort, mild exhaust note and harsh rear suspension. Also, it would be nice if the LED Pathfinder headlight came stock with this bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real head turner. I purchased this bike last spring after seeing it online. It's one of those bikes that the second you see it you know you just have to have it. The matted out look is definitely for me and adds tremendously to the attitude of the machine. The performance is superb and meets all my needs. This bike gets looks from bikers and public alike. Best purchase I have made in a long time!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bike seat sucks I bought this bike a couple months ago or so I like everything about the the (Scout bobber) the looks the feel all except the seat. The seat has got to be the worst seat ever. I ride to work and other place every day possible and my max time is 40 min on the bobber seat, after that I’m ready to apply preparation h and I’m a young guy. I mean my god the thing is terrible, and I own a buell and the seat is better on that bike. I get it’s a city bike so they say but geez I live in a big city so..... please step it up on that. Ok, other than the seat the bike is great good power ergonomics minus seat and USB port is great for phone gps usages. Keep the good work but step it up on seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This bike hits everything right on target, except one thing, so far... Performance, looks, price, cost to maintain: excellent. Only thing lacking with the bike is the seat. I can only stand the stock seat for about 30 miles at a time before I start losing feeling in parts of my body. Yes, the parts that just came to your mind are what I'm talking about, among others. Currently I'm justifying to my wife the need for a $300 to $500 replacement because, "The stock seat feels like someone strapped a $5 baseball glove on a cinder block." I'm like 5'11" 3/4, and weigh 200lbs. Other than that, I had a couple questions about the bike's matte finish, someone in customer service was supposed to reach out, but no one ever did. This is a review about the bike, though, and this bike is a lot of fun. I'm a very happy first time Indian-owner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I should of bought the Scout Not meant for New York Long Island roads. The suspension is very hard so you will bite your tongue on big bumps and every time you run over any kind of bumps the shock pushes your body and arms against the throttle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing piece of machinery!! It's only been a month and a half since since I brought the Bobber Sixty. I don't regret it for a second. The bike is so much fun to ride. I put 400 miles on the motorcycle already and I feel like that was in a blink of an eye. I was worried that since this is Indians cheapest motorcycle, I would have to upgrade it ASAP. I was wrong, this can be my forever bike. I really don't know what's better, the looks or the performance. Both are equally amazing. I would definitely recommend it if someone want a midsize cruiser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing I bought this bike a week ago at Ohio Valley Indian, in Mineral Wells, WV. Have ridden it every opportunity since. I had been in contact with the dealership for several months prior to my purchase, and the staff were great to deal with. Sales floor was immaculate. About the bike. It rides great, a little rough, but that was expected. Very clickable. A monstrous amount of power. The factory exhaust sounded very anemic, not fitting for such a powerhouse of a bike. I upgraded to crusher maverick slip-on, and do not regret it. It sounds perfect now, maybe on the loud side, but the tone is perfect. Brakes are very responsive. Transmission is smooth. Clutch feels great. Paint, and fit of the bike are perfect. Overall, I wouldn't hesitate recommend this bike to anyone! It is just that good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and beautiful This is my first motorcycle. Let me tel you, it is great!! Not overpowering and dangerous, very nimble and light. If you are looking to buy this Bike, I highly recommend getting the cushioned seat Indian offers otherwise you will regret the ride home. Trust me and several others who will tell you, the stock seat is hard as a rock and will hurt your tailbone. Another thing is the sound, wish the mufflers were louder. I am very happy with my purchase. I got the 2020 bobber. did my own 500 service on my own. A bit messy but easy nonetheless. It’s an overall great fun motorcycle.

I believe this had the Stage 1 kit factory installed on it.Sticker on tank said so.This Red and Black beauty was a dream to ride.Wish the Scout base felt solid like this too,Unfortunately it didn't. This bike has that "GET IT BOY" response that reminds me of a Sport bike I used to have.The torque will pull you back in the seat. The only cons are, Again ,Stock seat could be more comfortable and I need a 2 up for my wife to ride with me.Indian-PLEASE make this in a 2 up model in Jade Green.Thanks!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long time coming....... I waited a long long time to get an Indian Scout, but it sure was worth the wait. The Indian Scout Bobber Twenty is everything I was looking for in a bike. It's a comfortable, magnificent cruising bike for the open country back roads just outside my back door. It's got plenty of HP muscle, a low grumbling bellow (but not as obnoxious as some others), and a number of Scout throwbacks including the floating seat & spoke tires. I've stopped counting the number of people that have approached me in a parking lot, given me a thumbs up, and wanted to know more about this bike.

Indian should do better with the stock saddle and the rear shocks are mediocre at best. The rest is all good. Mine is matte black and is my city bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sits nice, fast, handles good. Smooth transmission Test rode today, part of a group ride at the dealership. Overall, satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great motor! Great fit & finish! Stiff ride As a very happy owner of a 2015 Roadmaster with just shy of 20k miles, we recently took advantage of the Indian Test Ride at our local WI dealer to check out the Scout Bobber as a new addition to our garage. I was very impressed with the overall look of the 2018 bike. Fit & finish is top-notch. Motor is just fantastic! Clutching and shifting is smooth and effortless. Very smooth throttle response as the bike gains RPMs from idle up to around 3000, which is where it really starts to sing! Ride is a little stiff and would look to soften it up if possible and would probably change out bars to accommodate a taller rider (6-1"). The Scout Bobber is definitely in the running for that spot in the garage next to our Roadmaster.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Motor The Bobber has a great motor, but nothing else about the bike stood out to me. BUT you could take this platform and build a performance cruiser that would lure some 30/40 year olds off their sport bikes and on to something more comfortable Mid controls, dual front brakes, standard riding position is all you would need. an "R" version with adjustable suspension would sell too. I don't why manufacturers think that a power cruiser won't sell. There are plenty of riders out here who are waiting for a good one!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put Springs under the Solo Saddle I tried a bobber today. It was equipped the way I would order one: solo saddle, extended reach controls, 10" apes. Lots of power, handling is superb, it's nimble, and feels light on it's feet (I normally ride a Springfield). Brakes are excellent, and, in this configuration, ergonomics are great for my 6 foot height. I have only one complaint: put some springs under that solo saddle to take the kick out of the bumps. It's like riding a rocket powered block of concrete. I could see even some neoprene bumpers under the saddle making a difference.

I test rode all the Indians and went back to the Scout. Suits my needs well. Our dealership is great too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unreal appearance! Bought my Bobber in October and absolutely love it. I get compliments every time I ride it. The only thing I have been frustrated with is the difficulty in customizing it, which was a large part of the marketing for it. I just got the 10” apes and brake lines, and was never told I’d need new mirrors and grips. Haven’t exactly been pointed in the right direction for what mirrors and grips will work with the new handlebars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised HD Rider for Decades, never even considered an Indian. Caught in a YouTube Vortex and found the Scout Bobber. Test Rode the next day......and rode it home. Wild little Motor that REALLY comes to life over 5K in the Revs (odd for a twin) and goes to about 8K. That 100HP comes out up top and the 72 FPT gets it moving from a stop nicely. Love this little ripper and could not be happier.......Full Exhaust goes on tomorrow :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun/style/quality Great bike. Fun to ride and has great power. The fit and finish is quality. The sound stock is too quiet, but a stage 1 or Maverick Crushers fix that. The suspension is good out front but the rear is a bit harsh, feels well planted though. Plenty of aftermarket and factory accessories to make it your own. I've had fun doing that. Only wishes are: -fuel gauge -cruise control -factory fly screen for Bobber

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less is more I took part in a demo ride. I really enjoyed this bike. It is obviously not meant for touring. It is a very cool looking bare bones ride. It was easy riding. Had plenty of power when needed and easy to also just take it easy and cruise. The weight is low on the frame which I think makes cornering even easier. May not be as comfortable for a tall rider but easy to fix with mini ape handle bars. I would also recommend upgrading the exhaust. Indian offers affordable upgrades.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sexy in black, scratch that...plain sexy I bought this motorcycle at the end of September and I took my time making sure that I had the right experiences to make sure I gave the right review. First of all, as the title alludes, this bike is sexy. It gets looks everywhere. I've been stalked in Starbucks locations across the state. "Hey..is that your bike out there?" A long conversation usually ensues. Most common of the queries are from true motorcycle enthusiasts whom usually own Harleys. This bike gets looks, even from devoted fans of other brands. Lets talk positives. First of all, the reports of the engine being a beast are spot on. I do not find myself regretting this, in fact, a Scout 60 bobber would still be a sexy sexy beast if they ever came up with one. Just saying, but I am glad it came with the 69 because my riding style is all about fast accelleration then cruising at speed. This thing flies (when you let it). One time at a stoplight I accidentally let it rip a bit too hard, I think it was a "lean back and the grip rolled with it" kinda moment and had an instant torque yank that set be back in the saddle as far as my arms would let me. It startled me a bit, but I recovered. This isn't a toy. I have always wanted a power commander, so I bought one. Did it need more power, no. But I got one with the stock pipes just in case I wanted to change things up. I must say, throttle response and as far as I can tell thus far, fuel mileage has improved. Jury still out on mpg but the quality of the bike on a power commander is worth considering even if on stock pipes. I was worried about cornering. Fat tires, heavier and lower suspension bike than I have ever previously owned had me babying it. After a few rides, I realized that the only thing holding me back was me. I dont lay into turns or scrape pegs, but I do accelerate into turns and roll it over as much as I have on previous bikes. The mirror placement is perfect (upright) for me. I cannot see myself, as cool as it would look, putting the mirrors down. As far as ride quality, well, no bike is perfect. My riding style is more of a short cruise variety. My typical rides are around 30-50 miles around the "island" (I am in Hawaii). Occasionally I hit 70+ miles but that's the exception not the rule. I also do a lot of point to point riding on this bike, just getting around. Going to to the movies, coffee, dinner, meet friends in town. From literature, it appears that my type of riding is exactly the market, as far as riding style, they were looking for. However, I think they sucked it down just a tad to far in the comfort vs. look/cost tradeoffs. Perhaps others are fine with it, and generally I am the type of rider that adjusts me before I adjust the bike as I figure the engineers know better. But his being my 4th bike, 2nd brand new, i was disappointed in how uncomfortable the bike was off the floor. Almost from the first ride, I realized I needed to make some adjustments. First step was preload. That made a huge difference. I think many dealerships overlook this step, but when you buy it, have the dealership adjust the preload IMMEDIATELY for your use. That did not occur, perhaps because the shop was closed by the time my transaction was completed, but it didn't get done and the ride home was a bull ride. This is extremely important as we will discuss in the next section. The suspension system, although an improvement over the standard scout previous models, still is sub par (being kind). If your municipality is full of horrific rough roads as mine is, please do yourself a favor and plan to upgrade suspension from the get-go. The preload helped a ton, but occasionally there's a spine jarring bump that made me question my choice of bikes. Proper preload helps, I cannot stress this enough, but I will be investing in a better suspension system as soon as enough reviews come out to distinguish which will best fit my needs. The seat is uncomfortable. I struggle with this the most because that's possibly the most iconic eye catching item on this bike (aside from the bar end mirrors). The seat sets it apart from other Scout models and i fell in love with it at first sight. However, its not built for long rides. Can I make do with this seat, yeah. absolutely, But if you tend to sit on your bike longer than I do, you will definitely be looking for other options in this area. In this, every professional review I read on this seat was spot on. Best for tooling around town, not so much for long cruises. Indian, you should put together a "Bobber Pro" model with better brakes, shocks, and seat. I would have bought it in a heartbeat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seat like a cinder block I wanted to ride a touring model but the wait was to long so I tried the Scout Bobber. My back still aches two days later. No spring in seat whatsoever. Hit a bump in the road and you're thrown several inches up out of the seat which could cause lose of control, not to mention like getting punched in the kidneys. I've ridden ridged frame bikes that were less harsh. When I mentioned this to sales rep he couldn't agree more with my riding impression. Other than a cruise around the block, I don't see many that would be up for any distance on this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best version of the Scout! This bike is the most beautiful "Bobber-style" bike out currently! Better looking than the Triumph Bobber or the Harley 48. It is plenty powerful and will satisfy your need for speed. I love my Scout Bobber and wouldn't trade it for anything. This bike is built to last. Everything on it is metal and solid feeling, none of that cheap plastic that the Japanese bikes have. Definitely has a premium feel to it. The only thing Indian could do better was improve the stock seat's comfort, mild exhaust note and harsh rear suspension. Also, it would be nice if the LED Pathfinder headlight came stock with this bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real head turner. I purchased this bike last spring after seeing it online. It's one of those bikes that the second you see it you know you just have to have it. The matted out look is definitely for me and adds tremendously to the attitude of the machine. The performance is superb and meets all my needs. This bike gets looks from bikers and public alike. Best purchase I have made in a long time!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bike seat sucks I bought this bike a couple months ago or so I like everything about the the (Scout bobber) the looks the feel all except the seat. The seat has got to be the worst seat ever. I ride to work and other place every day possible and my max time is 40 min on the bobber seat, after that I’m ready to apply preparation h and I’m a young guy. I mean my god the thing is terrible, and I own a buell and the seat is better on that bike. I get it’s a city bike so they say but geez I live in a big city so..... please step it up on that. Ok, other than the seat the bike is great good power ergonomics minus seat and USB port is great for phone gps usages. Keep the good work but step it up on seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This bike hits everything right on target, except one thing, so far... Performance, looks, price, cost to maintain: excellent. Only thing lacking with the bike is the seat. I can only stand the stock seat for about 30 miles at a time before I start losing feeling in parts of my body. Yes, the parts that just came to your mind are what I'm talking about, among others. Currently I'm justifying to my wife the need for a $300 to $500 replacement because, "The stock seat feels like someone strapped a $5 baseball glove on a cinder block." I'm like 5'11" 3/4, and weigh 200lbs. Other than that, I had a couple questions about the bike's matte finish, someone in customer service was supposed to reach out, but no one ever did. This is a review about the bike, though, and this bike is a lot of fun. I'm a very happy first time Indian-owner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I should of bought the Scout Not meant for New York Long Island roads. The suspension is very hard so you will bite your tongue on big bumps and every time you run over any kind of bumps the shock pushes your body and arms against the throttle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing piece of machinery!! It's only been a month and a half since since I brought the Bobber Sixty. I don't regret it for a second. The bike is so much fun to ride. I put 400 miles on the motorcycle already and I feel like that was in a blink of an eye. I was worried that since this is Indians cheapest motorcycle, I would have to upgrade it ASAP. I was wrong, this can be my forever bike. I really don't know what's better, the looks or the performance. Both are equally amazing. I would definitely recommend it if someone want a midsize cruiser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing I bought this bike a week ago at Ohio Valley Indian, in Mineral Wells, WV. Have ridden it every opportunity since. I had been in contact with the dealership for several months prior to my purchase, and the staff were great to deal with. Sales floor was immaculate. About the bike. It rides great, a little rough, but that was expected. Very clickable. A monstrous amount of power. The factory exhaust sounded very anemic, not fitting for such a powerhouse of a bike. I upgraded to crusher maverick slip-on, and do not regret it. It sounds perfect now, maybe on the loud side, but the tone is perfect. Brakes are very responsive. Transmission is smooth. Clutch feels great. Paint, and fit of the bike are perfect. Overall, I wouldn't hesitate recommend this bike to anyone! It is just that good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and beautiful This is my first motorcycle. Let me tel you, it is great!! Not overpowering and dangerous, very nimble and light. If you are looking to buy this Bike, I highly recommend getting the cushioned seat Indian offers otherwise you will regret the ride home. Trust me and several others who will tell you, the stock seat is hard as a rock and will hurt your tailbone. Another thing is the sound, wish the mufflers were louder. I am very happy with my purchase. I got the 2020 bobber. did my own 500 service on my own. A bit messy but easy nonetheless. It’s an overall great fun motorcycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Demo rider June 29th and 30th. WOW!! First impression riding this is SOLID and feels to be quality built. I believe this had the Stage 1 kit factory installed on it.Sticker on tank said so.This Red and Black beauty was a dream to ride.Wish the Scout base felt solid like this too,Unfortunately it didn't. This bike has that "GET IT BOY" response that reminds me of a Sport bike I used to have.The torque will pull you back in the seat. The only cons are, Again ,Stock seat could be more comfortable and I need a 2 up for my wife to ride with me.Indian-PLEASE make this in a 2 up model in Jade Green.Thanks!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long time coming....... I waited a long long time to get an Indian Scout, but it sure was worth the wait. The Indian Scout Bobber Twenty is everything I was looking for in a bike. It's a comfortable, magnificent cruising bike for the open country back roads just outside my back door. It's got plenty of HP muscle, a low grumbling bellow (but not as obnoxious as some others), and a number of Scout throwbacks including the floating seat & spoke tires. I've stopped counting the number of people that have approached me in a parking lot, given me a thumbs up, and wanted to know more about this bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost there I bought a 2019 in February and put RSD mids, exhaust, speedo relo, pro-taper bars, and a Mustang seat on it. The motor is ridiculously good. Indian should do better with the stock saddle and the rear shocks are mediocre at best. The rest is all good. Mine is matte black and is my city bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sits nice, fast, handles good. Smooth transmission Test rode today, part of a group ride at the dealership. Overall, satisfied. The turn signals and display buttons are quite small especially when wearing gloves which I do. Handle bars / grips are small diameter which is a little different for me as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great motor! Great fit & finish! Stiff ride As a very happy owner of a 2015 Roadmaster with just shy of 20k miles, we recently took advantage of the Indian Test Ride at our local WI dealer to check out the Scout Bobber as a new addition to our garage. I was very impressed with the overall look of the 2018 bike. Fit & finish is top-notch. Motor is just fantastic! Clutching and shifting is smooth and effortless. Very smooth throttle response as the bike gains RPMs from idle up to around 3000, which is where it really starts to sing! Ride is a little stiff and would look to soften it up if possible and would probably change out bars to accommodate a taller rider (6-1"). The Scout Bobber is definitely in the running for that spot in the garage next to our Roadmaster.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Motor The Bobber has a great motor, but nothing else about the bike stood out to me. BUT you could take this platform and build a performance cruiser that would lure some 30/40 year olds off their sport bikes and on to something more comfortable Mid controls, dual front brakes, standard riding position is all you would need. an "R" version with adjustable suspension would sell too. I don't why manufacturers think that a power cruiser won't sell. There are plenty of riders out here who are waiting for a good one!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put Springs under the Solo Saddle I tried a bobber today. It was equipped the way I would order one: solo saddle, extended reach controls, 10" apes. Lots of power, handling is superb, it's nimble, and feels light on it's feet (I normally ride a Springfield). Brakes are excellent, and, in this configuration, ergonomics are great for my 6 foot height. I have only one complaint: put some springs under that solo saddle to take the kick out of the bumps. It's like riding a rocket powered block of concrete. I could see even some neoprene bumpers under the saddle making a difference.

Indian Scout Bobber Sixty
À partir de 10 999 $ PDSF (CA)
2020 Indian Scout Bobber Sixty Thunder Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 286.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Scout bobber I signed up for the demo ride at a local dealership with Indian factory test ride rig. Stock the scout bobber was a little soft in power delivery with firm feeling rear shocks and seat. Then I rode the scout bobber with modified intake and opened up pipes with fox shocks and comfort seat. The bikes engine response was crisp with smooth linier power. Handling was good suspension compliance with the fox shocks and stock forks was spot on. The brakes were strong with good rider feedback and the six speed gear box shifted cleanly with well sorted out gear ratios. Overall the modified bobber was a blast to ride.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from That darn seat!! I bought this bike about 6 months ago. From the very first ride home from the dealer, people were stopping me to ask about my bike. As other reviews have stated, it starts a lot of conversations. This bike has great power and looks. The only problem for me is the seat. After about an hour or two, my butt is cramped up and I can't wait to get home. There are after market seats available but they are expensive and the prices are rising fast. I suppose if Indian does not have alternative seat, I'll have to spend the money. After all, what's the use of having such a cool bike if I cant ride it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bike I ever owned Bought the bobber in February. It was the best decision I ever made to sell my Harley and buy a Indian. Bike is so smooth, plenty of power and incredibly good looking. Im 6'4" and after I installed the extended reach controls and the mini apes I fit perfect. The only complaint I have is the seat. After a hour the seat is extremely uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Demo Days Rider 8-30-19 Thunder White Smoke little bobber!! If you haven't had the joy of riding a Scout Bobber,Your missing out. My 2nd year riding in a Demo days and rode a lot more bikes this time. Springfield, FTR1200,Scout Bobber, Scout and Cheiftain.This bike I rode twice. Like them that much. These little bobbers are so agile and a complete BLAST to ride. Great power and handling. If my son ever starts riding(He wants too learn), Gonna make him buy one of these just so I can ride it too. ONLY reason I have a regular Scout is its 2-up, Which I need for the wife to ride with me. Only fault the bobber has is the seat is not as cushy as the regular Scout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real head turner. I purchased this bike last spring after seeing it online. It's one of those bikes that the second you see it you know you just have to have it. The matted out look is definitely for me and adds tremendously to the attitude of the machine. The performance is superb and meets all my needs. This bike gets looks from bikers and public alike. Best purchase I have made in a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This bike hits everything right on target, except one thing, so far... Performance, looks, price, cost to maintain: excellent. Only thing lacking with the bike is the seat. I can only stand the stock seat for about 30 miles at a time before I start losing feeling in parts of my body. Yes, the parts that just came to your mind are what I'm talking about, among others. Currently I'm justifying to my wife the need for a $300 to $500 replacement because, "The stock seat feels like someone strapped a $5 baseball glove on a cinder block." I'm like 5'11" 3/4, and weigh 200lbs. Other than that, I had a couple questions about the bike's matte finish, someone in customer service was supposed to reach out, but no one ever did. This is a review about the bike, though, and this bike is a lot of fun. I'm a very happy first time Indian-owner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing piece of machinery!! It's only been a month and a half since since I brought the Bobber Sixty. I don't regret it for a second. The bike is so much fun to ride. I put 400 miles on the motorcycle already and I feel like that was in a blink of an eye. I was worried that since this is Indians cheapest motorcycle, I would have to upgrade it ASAP. I was wrong, this can be my forever bike. I really don't know what's better, the looks or the performance. Both are equally amazing. I would definitely recommend it if someone want a midsize cruiser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing I bought this bike a week ago at Ohio Valley Indian, in Mineral Wells, WV. Have ridden it every opportunity since. I had been in contact with the dealership for several months prior to my purchase, and the staff were great to deal with. Sales floor was immaculate. About the bike. It rides great, a little rough, but that was expected. Very clickable. A monstrous amount of power. The factory exhaust sounded very anemic, not fitting for such a powerhouse of a bike. I upgraded to crusher maverick slip-on, and do not regret it. It sounds perfect now, maybe on the loud side, but the tone is perfect. Brakes are very responsive. Transmission is smooth. Clutch feels great. Paint, and fit of the bike are perfect. Overall, I wouldn't hesitate recommend this bike to anyone! It is just that good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and beautiful This is my first motorcycle. Let me tel you, it is great!! Not overpowering and dangerous, very nimble and light. If you are looking to buy this Bike, I highly recommend getting the cushioned seat Indian offers otherwise you will regret the ride home. Trust me and several others who will tell you, the stock seat is hard as a rock and will hurt your tailbone. Another thing is the sound, wish the mufflers were louder. I am very happy with my purchase. I got the 2020 bobber. did my own 500 service on my own. A bit messy but easy nonetheless. It’s an overall great fun motorcycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Demo rider June 29th and 30th. WOW!! First impression riding this is SOLID and feels to be quality built. I believe this had the Stage 1 kit factory installed on it.Sticker on tank said so.This Red and Black beauty was a dream to ride.Wish the Scout base felt solid like this too,Unfortunately it didn't. This bike has that "GET IT BOY" response that reminds me of a Sport bike I used to have.The torque will pull you back in the seat. The only cons are, Again ,Stock seat could be more comfortable and I need a 2 up for my wife to ride with me.Indian-PLEASE make this in a 2 up model in Jade Green.Thanks!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long time coming....... I waited a long long time to get an Indian Scout, but it sure was worth the wait. The Indian Scout Bobber Twenty is everything I was looking for in a bike. It's a comfortable, magnificent cruising bike for the open country back roads just outside my back door. It's got plenty of HP muscle, a low grumbling bellow (but not as obnoxious as some others), and a number of Scout throwbacks including the floating seat & spoke tires. I've stopped counting the number of people that have approached me in a parking lot, given me a thumbs up, and wanted to know more about this bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost there I bought a 2019 in February and put RSD mids, exhaust, speedo relo, pro-taper bars, and a Mustang seat on it. The motor is ridiculously good. Indian should do better with the stock saddle and the rear shocks are mediocre at best. The rest is all good. Mine is matte black and is my city bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sits nice, fast, handles good. Smooth transmission Test rode today, part of a group ride at the dealership. Overall, satisfied. The turn signals and display buttons are quite small especially when wearing gloves which I do. Handle bars / grips are small diameter which is a little different for me as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great motor! Great fit & finish! Stiff ride As a very happy owner of a 2015 Roadmaster with just shy of 20k miles, we recently took advantage of the Indian Test Ride at our local WI dealer to check out the Scout Bobber as a new addition to our garage. I was very impressed with the overall look of the 2018 bike. Fit & finish is top-notch. Motor is just fantastic! Clutching and shifting is smooth and effortless. Very smooth throttle response as the bike gains RPMs from idle up to around 3000, which is where it really starts to sing! Ride is a little stiff and would look to soften it up if possible and would probably change out bars to accommodate a taller rider (6-1"). The Scout Bobber is definitely in the running for that spot in the garage next to our Roadmaster.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Motor The Bobber has a great motor, but nothing else about the bike stood out to me. BUT you could take this platform and build a performance cruiser that would lure some 30/40 year olds off their sport bikes and on to something more comfortable Mid controls, dual front brakes, standard riding position is all you would need. an "R" version with adjustable suspension would sell too. I don't why manufacturers think that a power cruiser won't sell. There are plenty of riders out here who are waiting for a good one!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put Springs under the Solo Saddle I tried a bobber today. It was equipped the way I would order one: solo saddle, extended reach controls, 10" apes. Lots of power, handling is superb, it's nimble, and feels light on it's feet (I normally ride a Springfield). Brakes are excellent, and, in this configuration, ergonomics are great for my 6 foot height. I have only one complaint: put some springs under that solo saddle to take the kick out of the bumps. It's like riding a rocket powered block of concrete. I could see even some neoprene bumpers under the saddle making a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Ride! I have been looking at this bike (Bobber) on line and went to Indian of Monmouth in Neptune when the demo truck arrived. I took the Demo ride which was not just a cheese ride around the.block, but rather a decent 20 min ride which was on the highway, and with a group. I loved the bike ride. The Bobber handles well and has plenty of power. I would strongly recommend test riding it and decide for yourself. As for me i'm sold!

Indian Chief Vintage
À partir de 23 999 $ PDSF (CA)
2019 Indian Chief Vintage Thunder Black is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 580.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got a second Indian to put on a sidecar Actually just bought my 3rd Indian. My first is a '46 Chief I'll have forever. Tried a new Indian while at Sturgis in 2013, came home, sold my H-D and ordered a Chieftain. Much better handling and smoother than my old bike plus noticeably better low speed balance. My wife can't ride on the back so I recently bought a Vintage in Willow green and creme. The bike is different but just as good as my Chieftain. After 700 break-in miles I put on a matching Hannigan sidecar. The power and great brakes on the Vintage made it a natural for the hack. The only problem I have is getting away from people when I make a stop. Even before the sidecar more people flocked to this bike than even my '46. The pros are many and I don't have any cons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the engine... I've had my Vintage for 5 months now, and have had zero issues...I've yet to find anything I don't like about it. One surprise feature that I had not even considered when I purchased it was it's VERSATILITY. I didn't realize how much I would employ the quick release features of the bags, luggage rack/back support and windscreen. I can quickly adapt to changes in weather, mood, and intended use. Possibly the greatest feature is what it DOESN'T have: vibration! I salute the engineers that designed the Thunderstroke 111, I am continually amazed at how smooth and well mannered the bike is!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10,000 miles Bought my Vintage from the Coral Indian dealer in Florida back in April. In November I hit the magic 10,000 mile odometer mark. I love this bike, on the open highway nothing comes close to it. The big windshield protects me and the huge saddle keeps me comfy. After 31 years on the other brand I can honestly say that making the switch to Indian was a snap. If you haven't rode one, do so soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Indian I bought my Vintage June 2017. By September I had over 8500 miles on it. I had not ridden in over 30 years when I decided to try to get back into riding. I bought my Vintage because I liked the nostalgic look and feel of it. After 30 years of not riding it took about a week to get use to it and to feel more comfortable on it. This bike continually turns heads while I’m riding. No matter, from teenagers to retired, the response is the same.....”Hey! Nice looking bike!” I went on a trip with friends from MN thru SD to WY & MT. Went thru the Big Horn Mtns and up Bear Tooth Pass and found that it handled extremely well on the 2 lane and 4 lane highways and up the switchback turns in the mountains. It was totally awesome! When we would stop in a town or small city I would have to answer questions for at least 10 minutes when people saw that it was an Indian and they would then relate their stories of when they use to ride......It was great. This was the best investment I’ve made in years......this is my stress reliever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty happy with it Traded in a 2016 scout for this. The vintage is far more comfortable for long days in the saddle so far. But I bought it so late in the year, I don't think I've put enough miles on to give it a unequivocal thumbs up yet. the fit/finish seem top notch, but the accessory pricing is nuts, I'm far more used to lighter, sportier bikes, so the handling and engine still seem almost ponderous to me. Not to say I haven't enjoyed my seat time so far. it's just very different than what I'm used to. But if I wanted what I was used to, I wouldn't have bought this bike. But at least for me, this is much better bike than the Scout was.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Head turner I bought the 2014 Chief Vintage new in July 2014. With in 6 months the leather had faded to green and I keep the bike in a garage when I am not riding. Nothing can be done by Indian, this is NOT their problem it is mine. The bike runs and rides great but I am very disappointed with the response from Indian. I know everyone who bought a 2014 with tan leather has gone through the same thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my BIKE!!! I bought my MINT GREEN and Ivory Cream Chief Vintage in April of 2015 and have had nothing but great riding with it. I added some pipes, air filter and some bing to it and it's AWESOME!!! The only low point is; I bought the tan leather handlebar bag from the Indian site at a reduced price. It WAS NOT mark as the 2014 tan leather dye that was of poor quality and turns "green." I will have to purchase new bag and am out the money for the first one. Also I purchased the seat backrest and instead of flipping the flap up on the back of the seat to insert the rest, I cut a slit in the flap to slip the bracket through. This keeps the flap down and doesn't allow water or dirt inside the seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2015 Indian Vintage Bought the bike in November 2015. The extra incentives being in law enforcement and it being an end of the year purchase helped make my decision. I had done my research and albeit I have never owned a Cruiser before when I saw the Vintage I KNEW that was the bike for me. Plus my wife loved it :) Was able to put 9000 miles on it the first year and can say without any reservations this is a Great Bike. I was and still am impressed every time I ride it. The Fit, Finesse, and Features always draws a crowd. I feel like a PR guy for Indian at times. The motor is STRONG and the Ride is excellent. It is my go to bike every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rides Like a Dream! I bought my 2015 Unpainted Vintage two years ago, I also had a Suzuki & a Harley at the time. I sold the Suzuki right after and rode both the Vintage and Harley for about a year, then sold the Harley. I really like the Indain on the highway and the engine has NEVER missed a beat and from start to finish! I really like "Chief" and have ridden all over Texas. If I buy another bike, it will definitely be an Indian! Also, Lone Star Indian has been a great sponsor for our IMRG Chapter. Thanks for making some beautiful, dependable bikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark and Strong I've been a Harley-guy since my dad and I put together a 1970 65cc Leggero H-D that he brought home in a bushel basket. After "trading up" for the past 20 years, I'm now the proud owner of a 2013 CVO Breakout, but the wife insisted on a more comfortable passenger seat for our trips to Daytona and Key West. We rolled into the local Indian dealership and was absolutely "hooked" after the demo ride! My dream garage is now complete with TWO Harleys, my Indian Chief and... yes... even a Ducati Diavel Titanium. God has truly blessed me!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great bike Rides really great plenty of power and smooth. Last Nov the dealer gave me a poster of the bike for my desk. Two days before Christmas my wife said"if you really want that Indian go get it'" and the rest is history! With the stage one exhaust and intake it sounds really good not too loud. The styling and leather attract attention just about everywhere. Leave extra time to gas up cause people will come over and ask questions. And yes the white walls are a pain to keep clean, but worth it. I've been riding since 1967 and this is the first new bike for me, what a beauty. When setting at idle I don't need to keep revving the engine to see out of my mirrors, cause the 111 doesn't shake itself to pieces like some other brand!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Instant Classic Was visiting Chattanooga TN and spotted a dealership. Drove in - test rode the Chieftan and was sold on the spot. Bought it and had it shipped to NY where I live. That alone should tell you something about this bike.The bike is the perfect blend of style and engineering excellence. Surprisingly well-balanced for a heavy ride. The power bands are smooth and the engine/tranny are responsive and well-matched. Handles better than bikes weighing 100lbs less. I still ride my HDs but the Indian is always my go-to ride. Once I'm on - it's hard to leave it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Motorcycle I Ever Owned I first saw this bike in Sturgis in 2014 at the Indian display and instantly fell in love with it. I knew the next time I bought a bike it would be an Indian Chief Vintage. In February 2016 I retired after 42 years at an engineering firm. I started looking at used Indians but didn't find anything close to central New York or for a good price so I decided to buy myself a 2016 model as a retirement present. I've loved everything about it ever since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Indian I bought a 2015 Harley Fat Boy Lo as my first bike, and I wish I had waited. My experiences with Harley in the year that I had it, was not the experience any bike owner should have. When I went to the Indian of Albuquerque, I had the most friendly and best experience ever. Not only were they nice before the purchase but even more welcoming after. I wouldn't trade my Vintage for anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deffinately an eye catcher The bike is all I hoped it would be. rides like a dream, fuel economy is well within the acceptable range, the red over ivory colour with the tan saddlebags make it a site to behold, more power than I know what to do with and a comfortable ride to boot! What I don't like is the engine noise (same as on my previous Suzuki) makes it sound cheap, also the instrumentation lighting, the red lights distort the numbers on the gauges, makes it hard to see the speedometer and clock. If I knew this ahead of time, I would still purchase the same bike!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Motorcycle with Classic looks. I bought my 2015 Chief Vintage about 10 months ago. I was looking to buy either the Chief or the 2015 Roadking. After riding the Chief at a demo event, I pretty much had already made my decision about which bike to buy. The Chief line up overall appeals to me more than most motorcycles on the market. The only downside to my purchase is that some accessories and or options seemed to have been an after-thought and rushed into production without too much attention to quality and detail. Not a deal breaker, but the fact that 95% of the motorcycle is top notch, there are area's that make you say, now why in the "H" did they do that? The other thing that I feel really needs to be re-visited is Indian/Polaris' need to gouge customers with their "Nostalgic Pricing". Their prices for accessories are, well, RIDICULUS! This stuff isn't New Old Stock guys, c'mon! The prices on the bikes are great compared to the competition, but the accessories prices are INSANE! I guess that's how Indian/Polaris plans on making up for great prices on their bikes. Ten months so far and 6600 miles. Bike still feels great and looks awesome, but I have not bought a single accessory from Indian/Polaris to date. Still, I love this bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the bike! I bought my Chief Vintage in Jan. '15,but had to wait 'till almost May to get it. Since then, I've put almost 12K on it, a stage 1, and absolutely love the bike. It's a Cadillac; more comfortable than any other bike I've ridden. It's taken me a little while to get used to the valve noise, but that's normal. About the only thing I don't like is the belt has a persistent squeak to it. A little dish soap takes care of that as the belt appears to be tracking correctly. The bike is comfortable, handles well, gets decent mileage, (@ 42mpg), goes well, and draws a LOT of eyes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE This Bike! I love the vintage styling of the bike combined with modern technology. I wasn't ready for a touring bike and traded my 09 Road King in on this. I rode from Plymouth MA to Spirit Lake and toured the factory 2 months after purchasing the bike. The following year I rode from Plymouth to Cape Breton Nova Scotia to ride the Cabot Trail. Long distance is not a problem, bike handles great and is plenty comfortable. I installed Springfield bars and love them. The nostalgic vibe this machine displays is unlike any other. The build quality is excellent and touring the factory solidified my belief that I made a great choice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2016 - Love the bike....hate the FOB I bought my 2016 Vintage new and have loved it except for getting stranded due to the horrible FOB quality. The ride is smooth on the backroads and the weight has saved me a few times. Indian should really do something to fix their quality issues since customers, like myself, may lean away from their brand for something seemingly simple to rectify. Maybe the new ones are better? You've lost an owner of a 2016 model! If you are not willing to stand by your past products what incentive is there to stand by you?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Test Ride of the Chief Dark Horse® I was stopping by to pick up some parts for my bike and noticed that the had a Demo event going on. So on my way out I walked by to see what they had brought. I've always been a fan of the Dark Horse bikes. The old school look with some nice high tech features. I took the test drive and was not disappointed. It throttled up nicely and felt solid. It takes the curves rather well. I like this particular model mostly because of the no frills, basic look. Even though they have plenty of accessories that you can put on. For me, I like it just the way it is. When I wear out my current bike I plan on getting one of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth!! Test rode an Chief Dark Horse and loved it. Besides the fact it's pretty much murdered out it was smooth to ride. The throttle response was nice with out being choppy in 1st gear like my Harley was when I got it. Shifting was nice, not to much work or overly loud like some bikes. And the biggest selling point for me was the suspension. I hit a pothole every bit of six inches deep and about a foot wide, going 25 mph. I barely felt it. And on the highway that engine is a BEAST. 4th gear, 70 mph, and I could still feel I was in the power band and had 2 gears left. Again loved it, can't say enough good things about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream come true plus some Never thought could afford an Indian which has been a dream bike since I was a kid. Loved the price which was cheaper then the Harley's I was looking at. Has a better ride nice and soft with plenty of power to get up and go. It especially is a head turner that gives off a big WOW feature when people see it. My first add on was the pathfinder lights, head lightbis good but wanted a wider spread of light. It also really enhanced the look of the bike. Would not trade this bike for any other except maybe 2017 chieftain with new touchscreen. lol! But seriously I love my bike and it already has its place in our family

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Darkhorse! Well, I have had this for a year now and finally have been able to purchase most all of the options that I wanted for it. The bike runs really smooth and is a great ride. On the negative side, there are still 2 items that are an issue. One, after the bike sits in the garage for a few days and you get on it and ride down the road, the first time you try to put the bike into 2nd gear, it takes all the pressure I can come up with to get it to shift! And two, the throttle response is a joke. If you turn the throttle quickly, the bike is like it is confused and doesn't know what to do. This is quite embarrassing when you are trying to impress somebody! I now have the complete Stage 2 kit in the bike and while it does seem to have gained some power, the throttle response still sucks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive I got my Dark Horse last fall and will say that she never seems to disappoint me. After the 500 mile servicing I took her for a two day 1,000 mile ride to the Ozark's Mountains to see how well she took the curves. I find myself not only satisfied with the handling but so far she is a dream come true. The cornering on this bike is every thing a motorcycle should be. After riding Harley for decades I find this motorcycle is not only easier to handle but a lot more enjoyable to ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love This Bike! After several years of riding, I think I finally found the one I will keep for a while. I love this bike. The way the Dark Horse looks with the Indian style and the ride is so smooth and easy. Everywhere I go, It seems to draw attention and a lot of positive feedback. I traded my Harley Fatboy Lo for this Dark Horse and I have never looked back. The Dealership, Treasure Coast Indian ,in Hobe Sound was Great with everything and very helpful. Made me fell at home as most of their staff came from the local Harley Dealer. My wife still has her Soft tail CVO ( the Beauty) and this is the" Beast"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kiwi Indian Dark horse Bought my Dark Horse in May 2016 and have loved it ever since. Everyone except my wife knew it was on order, unfortunately the day it tuned up at home i was away on business, so i received a message from my surprised wife to say "your new black baby has arrived and is safe n sound", needless to say this was not the first time a new toy had arrived without her knowledge (or will it be the last). To me Indians have always been the pinnacle of motorcycles, and this bike proves it. I have owned so many bikes over the years, but this one is a keeper. These bikes are so cool in every way Have added a pillion seat, pegs, sissy bar (for the wife, she loves it too), Rinehart mufflers (sounds awesome), Wimmer high flow air intake, mapped and tuned and more recently ape hangers. Still to come are stage 2 cams and Freedom Performance dual headers. Indians are well respected here in New Zealand due to our Kiwi legend Burt Munro (the worlds fastest Indian).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm in love ! I purchased the dark horse last fall, after test driving others I came back to this one, it has amazing handling it fits the best of all I tried feels like I am taking it for a ride not it. Is taking me for a ride absolutely love this bike ! Only 2 flaws one is the heat from the pipes gets unbearable needs a better heat deflector and the paint on the front fender almost like it has one coat and not sealed after only 2 rides it's all chipped looks like little white pebbles so that's disappointing ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bike and Better Staff! During a quick family trip to New Mexico my twin brother and I noticed the local Indian dealership had a demo day. Being avid bike enthusests from upstate NY we couldn’t pass on the opportunity to experience New Mexico on our favorite means of transportation! The sign up was quick and easy and they even let our wife’s ride with us! We were able to sample several bikes with the amazing staff of Albuquerque, Indian dealership! They even took us on a personal tour ride to ensue we were able to experience an additional bike without our limited amount of time! We can’t thank the guys of Albuquerque Indian dealership for being so welcoming to a couple guys looking to get the most out of and opportunistic moment with our wife’s! We will absolutely be looking at the Indian line for our next bikes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark side of riding I've had my Chief Dark Horse for 2 months. This is the best bike I have every owned (I have owned harley and honda.)! Maintenance won't kill your wallet, and neither will parts and accessories. The comfort and ride of the bike has taken me 2 hours before a break. The big 111 Thunderstroke has a ton of power, regardless of what gear. Averaging 37.4 mpg solo, and 35 mpg with a passenger. My only displeasure is the lack of aftermarket parts, but, in my opinion, that does not take away from the value, or the prestige of owning my Dark Horse. -Live free and ride on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it's all I have wanted and expected in a sled I am extremely happy with it. I am some what disappointed in the price of the clothing apparel. I would love to add new exhaust and bags but the price is to far out of my finances. It has as much power that could ever be needed. Also The guys and girls at Elkhart Indian are the best. They have taken such good care of all my needs and that was very important in helping me with my decision before buying my Dark Horse. I spoke with Chris before purchasing the bike and he gave me all the answers that were of great importance too me. I thought of buying a Harley but the Indian was by far the best choice for me. Looks, were first in my decision. It just has the best look and style that is by far better than any Harley!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my bike!!! Have had my bike for about a month. Have just over 1100 miles with no problems. This replaced my Harley that I rode almost everyday. I am sold on Indian have four other bikes but hardly ride them now. With my Harley I would switch between my bikes weekly. I just can get off this bike. The only thing that I would say is the seat takes a few miles before it is broke in. Would recommend this bike to anyone looking to change from the HD brand. This bike has power in every gear. With the HD would have shift down to pass don't have to do anything but roll back on the throttle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bookmarked for my next bike purchase I was finally able to test ride a 2019 Chief Dark Horse and it exceeded all my expectations. What an absolute road crusher! I currently own a 2018 Scout Bobber and have the Chief Dark Horse pegged as my next bike.....dependant on one singular change: PLEASE give us some color choices Indian!!! It is such a beautiful bike, but all of them are black. Indian has some of the best colors in the motorcycle industry (check out their scout line) so it only seems natural that more color options should come to the Chief Dark Horse. Pssst: White Smoke is the color I want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bike I've had the Darkhorse for 3 months, love the balance can hard over steering locked, slow speed turns with my girl behind me. Love under turning the other big bikes. Open highway its a dream cruse control on. Mountain roads around Cherokee NC a lot of fun, working my way to scraping holes in each side floorboard pans outside corners. The Thunder Stroke loves the Mountain roads two up at 280 lb no problem. So far I'm enjoying the heck out of the bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Motorcycle I really enjoyed demoing this bike. I was especially impressed with its slow speed handling. Most other big bikes feel awkward turning around in a parking lot, but the Indian was confidence inspiring. Out on the road it was very smooth and developed power right from idle. No need to rev this bike even to 5000 rpm. If I had any complaint it was the heat from the motor sitting at traffic lights. But, hey! this bike was built for the open road.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polaris Industries does it again! I purchased this bike a few weeks ago, i had a 2007 Victory Vegas before. I loved the Vegas, the Dark Horse just takes those feelings and adds more. This is my first bagger and I don't see myself ever changing from a Polaris motorcycle or from a bagger. Awesome styling, phenomenal engine in the Thunder Stroke 111, this is the first bike I've ever heard that I'd consider leaving the stock exhaust on. I hope to have this bike for a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At long last... I have wanting an Indian Chief since seeing an early '50s model a friend owned back in the seventies. The Gilroy version came and went, the Kings Mountain version was too expensive. Now the latest (and I think greatest!) version has come around. I came to a point in life that I can afford one and no-one can tell me I can't have one. I know they are marketing the Dark Horse at a younger demographic, but at 60, I still feel young enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bike for the Money I bought a 2016 Dark Horse two weeks ago and have been impressed with it so far. I do have the windshield, saddle bags , engine guard and extra driving lights installed that almost make it a Vintage. It has great power and torque in all gear ranges and the engine is smooth at all speeds. Handling surprised me for how heavy it is and alludes confidence when riding. Fit and finish is good, but the Vintage and Springfield appear to be built better (some rattles on larger bumps). I plan to keep this a long time and look forward to many years of great rides.

Ride is so smooth and comfortable and torque and acceleration are amazing. Once I am riding, I just don’t want to stop. I can ride for miles. I am 5’11 and the riding position is just perfect. I can praise enough the team of engineers, designers and painters at the Indian factory. You can tell they all take great pride of their jobs. Thank you all for helping me leaving my dream. Now back on the road ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dream Bike! August of 2017, My new wife (just married) accidentally stumbled upon a phenomenal deal on a used 2015 Chieftain(2008 miles). Previous owner installed stage 2 cams, performance air filter, Reinhart slip on exhaust. I've since then put around 2000 miles on it and let me tell ya! WOWWW. It is an absolute pleasure to ride! Riding position is so comfortable on longer runs with no shoulder pain or lower back issues. My Chieftain (Tala) rides like a dream. In my opinion the suspension is spot on just firm enough to be nimble but forgiving when you need it to be. Power is amazing, smooth thru ought the power band and pulls like a freight train in all gears. I've replaced the stock speakers with Polk Audio since I'm a little bit of an audiophile. The overall ride is composed very very well at ALL speeds. Only issue I had was the back fender had a little paint bubbling on the edge. Replaced with no hassles under warranty. If you're looking at reviews trying to sway you one way or the other GO TEST RIDE ONE and take this into account: This bike has elevated my passion for riding to another level that I didn't know existed. Pure pleasure and tech savvy mixed into it. Last but not least the bike is absolutely beautiful! I'm a proud INDIAN owner. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bagger EVER!!! I’ve owned motorcycles from just about all the Major motorcycle brands including Harleys but my Indian Chieftain is by far the best overall motorcycle I have ever owned. It blends the reliability, technology, and performance of the Japanese cruisers with the classic styling, fit and finish of an American cruiser. For a big bike it is very easy to handle. As a Millennial I can say for certain that Indian is headed in the right direction for future motorcyclist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike I spent several days at Daytona Bike Week conducting test rides of virtually the entire Harley and Indian lineup and the Chieftain Classic is the bike for me. It is a much more refined experience than a Street Glide or an Electra Glide Standard, which were the two Harley models I thought were most comparable. You really do need to ride the bikes back to back to determine what is the best choice for you. Having the ability to do this over an over again at Bike Week really enabled my to determine that the Indian Chieftain Classic was the bike for me. Best advice I received before buying was TEST RIDE, TEST RIDE, TEST RIDE and recommend you do the same as this is such an individual decision!!! One small detail I really like on the Indian vs the Harleys is the gear position indicator. It is always visible on the Indian but seemed to be never visible when I wanted to see it on the Harleys. A minor point but another example that I found the Indians much more refined that the Harleys in about every way that mattered to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Spirit Best bike I've ever owned! My 2016 Indian Chieftain was purchase in Colorado 2017. I was on a 2006 Yamaha Roadliner 1900S at the time heading to Colorado for my birthday trip, when after 800 miles from Minnesota had to stop for the night due to issues. Next morning was the call that decided it all. Here I was beginning of trip I had planned for months to celebrate my 50th & experience the Million Dollar Highway and everything Colorado had to offer. (I had previously test rode a 2015 Indian Chieftain in Spirit Lake, Iowa during Okoboji open house year before but couldn't make commitment since I was dedicated to becoming debt free.) Now her I was at G-Force in Lakewood, CO with situation of being stranded or choice of purchasing a New 2016 Indian Chieftain. No doubt looking back I've made the right decision! I love riding it's all I think about during winter months in MN (hate snow, originally from Indiana), so I travel solo as often as I can to visit family that are still there & in Montana. I feel so comfortable while riding my Cheiftain, it takes my soul & "Spirit" away. The ride is smooth, push button start is something I've never had prior, while the power & comfort are strong reasons for enjoying my new ride. Wished I just had 12months of riding my "Spirit", my Indian Chieftain. Teresa Bell of MN

None of them compared to the quality of the Indian chieftain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NOW WE'RE TALKING! Test rode the Chieftain Classic at Sturgis and I knew I was hooked! The riding position, the bend of the handlebars, the seat height, and the comfort of the seat all make this machine feel right! The power windshield is not offered by Harley. Too bad. It is fantastic! The suspension travel is far better than Harley, and I own a Harley! Bought my Chieftain in November, 2018, and I'm not looking back. The Indian is a far better machine than my Road King.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great motorcycle. I own a Victory Hard-Ball currently, and this is very comparable. I like the fit and feel of my Victory better (significantly longer bike, more comfortable seating position as a result), but it's easy to see all that early DNA and tech across the 2 brands. The performance, power, and handling are very similar which I am glad to see. I still like the the "svelte" design of the Vics better as well (less bulk between your legs when sitting with your feet on the ground). Indians are great bikes, and I like the updates I am seeing year over year. If Polaris stretches them out a little, and keeps bringing in the styling looks and touches that made Victory bikes so unique, they may bee an option for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handles curves with ease and smoothness I did a 10 mile test ride through the canyons at the 79th Sturgis. I did my test ride on a 2018 Chieftain powered by the 111. I did this ride with 3 other friends and we all had the same feelings with the bikes. The bike handles amazing, it was like just floating on the road. Cornering handling is probably the best of any bike I have ever been on. I say that with 20+ years of riding experience. The bike has amazing balance very user friendly. The only thing I was disappointed in was the power out of the 111. It felt very underpowered to me compared to a Harley with a 107. The 116 was available for test rides but there was a long wait and I did not have the time. I wish I could have compared the 2 engines but maybe next time. Just my opinion it's a very well built bike and easy to handle.

From start to finish, everything was great! And...I Love my new bike. Way better than my 2003 Harley! Merry Christmas to Me. Jason C.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised I went into RideNow Powersports Concord for the sole purpose of having my Yamaha 950T serviced. I always thought that I would one day upgrade to the big boy bikes, but after meeting Justin Massey, Sales Rep., with whom I felt very comfortable, I found myself actually, seriously looking into purchasing an Indian Chieftain Limited. Because of Justin's reassurance that doing the math on a purchase is not a commitment, but rather a chance to look at facts and takeout the guess work. To make a long story short, I didn't think I could be made comfortable enough to purchase the bike, but Justin and the sales staff got it done. I am now the proud owner of a 2018 Indian Chieftain Limited. Now, I could have spent my review describing my new Chieftain, but that bike sells itself and you can read about it or see it at any Indian dealership. But what you can't see anywhere is the service and attention to detail that I experienced at the hands of Justin and the Concord, N.C. staff. It made the difference. I've been in North Carolina just over two years, and I can tell you sincerely, interacting with Justin and the Concord staff was the best personal interactions I have had since moving here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy Overall, But.... I have had the Chieftain for a couple of months now and overall I'm happy with the bike. The bike did develop a vibration I can feel in the right floor board after the first 1000 miles that I also notice in the mirror (blurry vision) between 2500 and 3000 RPM. The dealer felt it was normal (subjective of course) but it wasn't as smooth as it was during the first 1000 miles. This is a little disappointing to me because I bought the bike for touring and comfort. I wish I could give it 5 stars, but the vibration is an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2018 Chieftain Classic - An Awesome Classic Reborn I bought my brand new 2018 Chieftain Classic 1 1/2 months ago and only due to the weather am I still working on my 500 mile break in period. I decided to add a full stage 1 right out the door along with a backrest for myself. The bike beautifully in all speeds and RPMs without any chugging as I’ve seen in other posts. It was great pull from the start and even sets you back in the seat when passing someone on the highway without the need to downshift. The torque is unbelievable fro the TS111. During my 500 mile service I plan to add stage 2 cams and look forward to a bit more power and that classic big bike rumble at idle. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and plan to log many miles around Alabama and Tennessee through the beautiful backroad scenery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ride I enjoyed a demo ride on the chieftain this afternoon. After riding my 2012 Judge, the Chieftain was so much smoother in very way, with virtually no vibration such as I am used to. This was a very nice bike to ride. The raise/lower wind screen made riding at freeway speed much quieter, making my old and noisy helmet almost acceptable for 70 MPH+ speeds. A touring bike may just be in my future. Thank you for this opportunity. I may have to change my nickname from Rafting Don to Cruising Don.

I liked it when I bought it and my pleasure in owning the bike has just increased over time. I took a 3.000 mile trip through Canada during August and the comfort and performance were all I could ask for. Have Stage one and two and recommend the upgrade. Just rode the 2019 and liked the selective throttle.

Having ridden for 50 years and owning dozens of motorcycles, I can say this Indian is easily the best motorcycle I've ever owned! I've rented Harleys all over America and there is no comparison to the Indian. Plus, the Indian stying makes all other brands seem obsolete.

Indian Chieftain
À partir de 26 999 $ PDSF (CA)
2020 Indian Chieftain Thunder Black is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 614.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Motorcycle On The Road Purchased during Spring Bike Week at Daytona Beach Indian dealership after demo ride at the Speedway. Didn't take long to decide to trade in my Street Glide for the Chieftain. The bike already had the air cleaner kit and exhaust upgrade. Since purchase I have had the dealership lower the bike front and rear. Installed hi-performance cams and catalytic converter eliminator. Had to install 10" baffles after the catalytic eliminator was installed because I thought the exhaust sounded too hollow. With baffles I'm happy. I also replaced stock seat with a Corbin leather solo seat. Overall IMHO this is the best motorcycle on the road!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love My Chieftain Owned for almost 2 months, 1200 miles. Love this bike more each time I ride it. Two reason I gave a 4 star vs. 5 star rating: 1) The seat is beautiful, but at 6'1" it sits me too far forward. I was constantly having to sit on the back of the seat, so ended up having to buy an aftermarket seat. Disappointing after spending this much money on a new bike that I had to take this beautiful seat off and have it just sitting in storage. 2) The right side cover for the fog light on the inside of the fairing blew off while riding and was lost. Dealership covered it under warranty, and said they had this happen on several others. The part is on undetermined back-order which indicates this is happening a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Curse of the Black Pearl Jack Sparrow would be proud, the Black Pearl has captured my soul. As soon as I heard Polaris had acquired Indian Motorcycles, I knew that something amazing would happen, and then the Chieftain happened. I started to scrimp and save until I could afford what I knew I had to have. Then the day came, and I saw her, from a distance. The magnificent Black Pearl Chieftain. She had captured my soul with her total brilliance. I have ridden every type of bike created. Sport bike. Cruiser. Tourer. Honda. Suzuki. Harley. Nothing compares.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2016 Chieftain BC After 2 yrs of reviews and road test in the Northwest USA my luck came in. Western Canada finally got a dealership in Langley BC and I purchased and received my Indian Chieftain in November 2015. Just have 500 km right now but Love my new Indian. Smooth ride, great balance, gentle shifting, strong compression breaking, easy cornering, visible scream for fuel,gear,and music. Not to mention how classic and good looking she is out on the road. I'm looking forward to getting out on the road and making new adventures. I can't say enough good about the company, the great comeback with Polaris and the new line up of Indian Motorcycles . I love .Love. LOVE my Chieftain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DREAMBOAT I cannot believe that i share such good emotion with an 800 lb cruiser. I cannot park it anywhere without starting a conversation and the color attracts people of all ages not just bikers, ive always wanted an indian and when i heard polaris started the brand up again, i worked my butt off to get it, i will get another just dont know what model yet. Keep em coming. Only thing i wish i had is an extra key fob, other than that the other small details are easily overlooked once you ride it. I sat on a few dozen harley davidsons but none grasped my soul like when i sat on the chieftain. I had it custom painted and had a dedication put on it for my friends 11 year old son that passed away. THANK YOU POLARIS!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turning Heads I purchased this bike in June 2017 and no words can explain my satisfaction with this superb machine. Turning heads on the highway and answering many questions of curious motorists at every stop is unavoidable. The nostalgic look mixed with modern touches sets this bike apart from others immediately, everyone knows is an Indian. The engine delivers sustained horse power for any trip. Additionally, the rapid throttle response is undeniably reliable. The stock pipes provide a distinct sound that comes handy when dealing with distracted drivers inside city streets. The dash display is easy to read during periods of high sunlight or poring rain and helps me keep my eyes scanning the road. Both seats are comfortable, just add the passenger and rider back rest for more comfort. The rider seat height delivers solid foot on ground for better control and balance. The saddlebags are spacious to carry all my gear for a 4 day trip. Finally, the Indian logo on the tank and the headdress are the best visual expression of the brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fulfilling a dream! I have day dreamed of owning an Indian for more years than I can remember. When the thunderstroke 111 was introduced I followed the media and Web reviews closely. Then the line up introduced at Sturgis had me hooked. The next step was to wait for a dealership to open in my state, Maine. in June of 2014 a dealership opened in Maine. I bought a chieftain that week. I love motorcycles and riding. This bike exceeded my expectations.style handling and power. Not a single regret. Just ride one, you'll be hooked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good ride Bought 3 years ago and have ridden 48K. Runs great and handles long trips beautifully. Illicit's lots of comments and conversations. Would be better if it had a Nav system that could accept routes and chained waypoints. New 2017 screen looks nice but was not thought out. Even cheap add ons will do that. Sirius would be nice! I was planning on upgrading in 2017 but there is nothing new worth the cost. Depreciation and lack of new features???? Paint options are another area that needs work. Color options are lacking and unattractive. Not enough choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Chieftain Dark Horse w/o Bags I have owned HD's for 17 years and after one test ride I bought the Dark Horse the same day! I wanted the Chief but I needed the fairing. Considering the insane cost and labor of adding the stock front fairing, I just bought the Chieftain and removed the side bags (I won't sell them but I am getting a lot of $2k+ offers). I also removed the bag hardware and filled the gap with the Scout chrome replacement rear fender washers (Thx Polaris, for making your parts the same size). Now I have a very unique cruiser with a stock fairing! After adding a very small Indian pouch and Chrome one up rails this beast was ready for the road. I rode 500 easy miles the 1st day and did the oil change myself. I just hit the 2000 mile mark and I love this beast even more today than I did when I first bought it. The seat took some getting used to, but now it seems just right. It is summer in Texas and riding in 100+ degrees is normal. THIS THING PUTS OUT SOME HEAT! I read every review beforehand and I knew that the 111 Thunderstroke heat was a force to be reckoned with, but OMG! This is not a beast for standing in traffic! I think Polaris has made me a better employee; I get to work early and leave late to beat the traffic! LOL The power of this engine is EXACTLY what you have read about! The torque is amazing and it simply pulls in every gear. The best range is the 3k - 4k RPM and you can pass anyone at any time without downshifting. The suspension is perfect and the is no vibration at idle. The stock sound is impressive but not perfect. It has a deep rumble, but if you leave for work at 5AM you won't wake the neighbors. I may add some slip-ons next year. This bike is not cheap and you are going to pay top dollar for any accessory, but you will not be disappointed with the power, quality, craftsmanship or style of this American made beauty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bike I've ever owned! I LOVE this bike. Only had a couple things that were an issue and they were fixed. i.e.- I'm short, so added kickstand extension and had some issues with key fob but entering my "code" remedied the problem. Also, heat from motor broiling my thigh and added a heat shield. I added front lowers to highway bars and the added weight is top heavy, making slow maneuvers a challenge but all else, is awesome! I love it!!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I absolutely love my bike. My dealer Indian Motorcycle of the Twincities has been great. However there is an issue with the radio and the USB port in the fairing that the dealer can't seem to fix. And Polaris doesn't seem to care about. Whenever I have something plugged into it, it will work for a little while then cut out and I will get the words no device detected. then it will connect it never stays on. If there is something plugged into it and I am listening to the radio it will cut the radio off and go to the device. People tell me to "just use the bluetooth. Not what I want to do. I have over $28,000 invested into this bike.EVERYTHING SHOULD WORK... Paint is really soft!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Responsive I only had a 20 minute demo ride, but here is what I can tell you. Throttle response and torque were excellent, as were the brakes. Handling was excellent also. Interstate and winding curves were intuitive and stable. The electric windshield was nice, but I think I'd leave it in the highest position all the time for me, I'm 6ft tall. Shifted excellent too. The rear brake pedal was too small for my liking, but that is minor. The seat was comfortable and supportive, but a long trip would be needed for conclusive results, as would the saddle bags, which I didn't use. Also, for a heavy bike, the balance, even at slow speeds was excellent. It was an enjoyable ride. Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poor finish This is my 4th season on the bike it has 30000 km on it now. Love the ride and power but the paint and chrome seems poor quality. The kick stand chrome started peeling almost as soon as I got it. Paint seems to sctatch and show swirls very easily. The wind shield and front fairinghave developed lots of rattles and annoying noises. I would be nice to have a bigger dealer network for support on long trips.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hot Chieftain I had purchased a demo Chieftain back on 12/17/15.. I've had two recalls so far and ever since a Flash was done on my bike it runs too hot with less power. It's not enjoyable to ride in the summer in TX.. I love my bike but its' too hot to ride since the Flash was done...help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Fun Purchased in August 2015. Got about 3K miles on it so far and very satisfied. Only thing I've changed is replaced the seat with a custom Corbin. The original seat was ok but obviously made for much shorter people. My last 3 bikes over a span of 20 years were Sport touring bikes (BMW) so this was a major change for me. Not the same ride but I don't regret the decision. As big bikes go this one is more like a big sport bike than a low rider, lot's of power and ground clearance so I can still hug a tight corner at speed but solid and heavy enough to feel like a couch on the super slab. The only annoying thing is all the people gawking and asking questions whenever I pull in somewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Considering owning Chieftain 2018 I rented Indian Chieftain 2016 or 17 I'm not sure which one they gave me. My wife and me went on two day trip through Rockys in Colorado. I ride Yamaha stryker which is just a touch longer then Indian since its midsize chopper, so I didn't had problem adjusting to Indian. Handling was good, very comfy, a lot of power and space. Sound system worked good. I ride only cruisers so didn't had any complains for two days ride. I'm considering buying Chieftain 2018 since I like fairing and fender, I'm not lover of 2019. I'll test 2018 soon and see if I'm going to make a deal with a dealership for trading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding motorcycle I purchased my 2014 Chieftain in August 2014. I was a little nervous buying a first model year new bike but, this motorcycle has turned out to be one of the best decisions I've ever made. It's beautiful, powerful and super fun to ride. I get compliments and head turns where ever I go. It is without a doubt the best bike I've ever owned or ridden. Indian may have made a mistake in making my bike so perfect as I may never want to buy another. My Chieftain is the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent riding experience at Americade I did a demo ride at the Americade, I currently own a Harley Street Glide Special and wanted to try the Indian Chieftain. I did like the Chieftain better as far as how light the motorcycle is and it rode amazing. But some small features like the blinker only on one side I had a hard time adjusting to also no heel shifter on the one I tried out. Also had a hard time with the kickstand, I have shorter legs (hard time reaching). My next purchase I will certainly look at the Indian versus Harley, I was very impressed. Thanks again, also I want to mention the staff from Indian was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike I purchase a 2014 Indian Red. After 42,000 miles I think I can say it is a very reliable bike. I've logged thousands of highway miles, still have stock speakers, and can hear it clearly at highway speeds. The engine noise is no more than one should expect from an over head valve engine. The engine does put off heat but no more than any other air cooled v-twin I've ridden. I'd have to say the Chieftain is the most comfortable bike I've ridden. It handles great, corners like a sport bike, can make a tight slow turn and move through heavy traffic effortlessly. I've been riding for 40 years, with 11 as a MC officer on Indians biggest rival. I've owned numerous bikes. Great job, fantastic design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New bagger believer Great bike with exceptional handling and performance. I had the stage kit installed at purchase and the bike just gets better every ride. I do have an ongoing issue with it shutting off after it gets hot and I come to a stop light. I have had two dealerships look at it and they can't seem to find the answer that resolves the issue. Seems it's idling 50-70 rpms too low with the stage two kit as the new cams have bigger loop at idle now varying between 700-750 when hot. I have had it reflashed already and the problem still exists. Not sure how to resolve, but I love the bike.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed So I did try, did three test rides. Where to begin, too retro, a weak power plant, more plastic on this than I expected. Awkward handling and sluggish response. Did some research, this thing is going to spend about as much time as a Harley in the shop for service. I was surprised, considering this was born out of the Victory. Do yourself a favor and talk to some of the aftermarket Victory shops, who also work on the Indian, what I got was, not the same quality as Victory, and you will want to invest some cash to improve performance in addition to stripping off some excess materials. I really wanted to try this bike, had the cash, but just had a weird feeling, so did the due diligence and I was very disappointed.

This bike is glamorous, powerful and reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First ride on a big bagger I bought a Scout Bobber this Spring and I love it. I put a 2 up seat on it and the wife and I have cruised the NH seacoast and had a blast. However, with 2" of rear suspension and no storage, it is a short ride bike with 2 people. I wanted to try a big bagger, having never ridden an 800# bike. Turns out the weight is not noticeable. The ergonomics are different than the Bobber so it took a few minutes to get comfortable. Once settled in I loved it. Low end torque, soft seat and suspension, warm behind the fairing, GPS, etc, etc. I guess I need 2 Indians!

Indian Springfield
À partir de 25 299 $ PDSF (CA)
2019 Indian Springfield Thunder Black is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 300.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent bike Just picked up the 2016 Indian Springfield after nearly buying a H-D RK. The RK is a great bike, but after riding both it was really no question. The Springfield seems to beat the RK in every category, excluding subjective preferences. Standard features better (ABS, TPMS, additional status info, electronic locking hard bags, phone charger in hard bag, etc.), thunderstroke 111 vs twin cam 103 (the power difference is impressive, easy maintenance), ease of converting from touring bagger to cruiser. Both bikes have a very comfortable riding geometry, but I found the Springfield to be just a little more of a natural fit (5'9") while riding and a bit easier to handle when feet are on the ground while stopping. The best thing to do is ride each of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular Ride Its been about four months since I purchased my 2016 Springfield. In that time I've ridden the motorcycle in town and out in the country over steep hills and wide open roadways. My wife and I really feel invigorated every time we climb on and take it out on the road again. I personally am extremely satisfied with the bike both in its performance and the way its built. Being a former machinist, I am struck with the quality and hard work old craftsmanship that has gone into this machine. I appreciate all of the hard work that has gone into these machines. They're Awesome!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Concerned I bought the blue and silver sapphire bike Springfield on February 25th. The temp got up to 49 degrees yesterday and I decided to run to the local deli and grab a couple sandwiches. Took a slow right hand turn and the engine light comes on with only 22 miles on the bike. I bought the bike to have ready for spring. I contacted the dealership and they have to see it to diagnose the problem. Its cold again and I'm unable to ride it in. They can transport it for $50 fee. I already paid $100 for another dealer to deliver so that it would be ready to go. Seems my first trip over 10 miles will be on a nice day to see what's wrong. Very disappointed.

This is my 1st Motorcycle Purchase ever and after driving everything by every Manufacturer in this class nothing comes close to the Power, Styling, and Versatility; Not to mention the Cadillac Ride!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Indian Springfield The Indian Motorcycle has out done them selves. The quality, workmanship and ride is by far out doing any other bike in the market place. After not riding for quite a few years my wife and I decided we would need a tow vehicle for when traveling with our motorhome. We spent a year researching motorcycles and tow cars. Once I walked into Wayne Indian, that was it. I knew right then this was it. I completely fell in love with riding all over again. I put 500 miles on in my first 2 weeks. Once you test ride an Indian you will understand. I can not give it enough praise on the keeping the true Indian lines, look and heritage. For the traditionalist like myself this machine by far out did it's rivals in every aspect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my bike. I have owned almost every model of Harley. Touring bikes, Softails, V-Rods, everything but a Sportster. I grew up on Harleys (even on the back of one as a kid) and it was a tough choice to break tradition. Ultimately I did make the switch due to a simple fact. It's a better bike. It's more powerful and smoother than a Milwaukee Eight bike, feels very well put together and is more fun to ride. It's also a much better looking bike than a Road King. I go to bike night and I might see one other Indian, but that's it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bike, EVER! Okay so out of curiosity last Spring I test rode a Springfield and loved it! Now I'm not made of money and I've been riding my 98 Softail for a long time and really like it. Come fall and I stopped in at the Indian dealer again and there on the floor sits a red 2016 Springfield all shiny and pretty. I could no longer resist. I went home that night and sold my Harley to my son and bought the Springfield. Indian, you have your stuff together with this bike. Handles and rides better than any Harley I've ever owned, ever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1700 mile review I am happy i bought this bike. I have had issues with it such as; it keeps blowing a fuse for the dash. also the rear tip over bars do not touch before the bags do tested in a controlled manor. the bike handles and has plenty of power. It does however have a lot of excess noise when shifting at higher RPMS sounds like something loose somewhere but can not be found but every indian i have rode has this noise. The exhaust note is good and not over whelming. the ABS system is great and not super invasive like a cars. I feel it should come with the driver backrest and not be a high dollar add on same has LED headlihgts and running lights. the turn and brake lights are LED why not make them all LED. If you buy the bike before you buy the aftermarket apes try rolling OEM bars forward i am a bigger person and it fits well with stock bars as seen in picture below (6'3 240)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size for a female my size! I owned a Vintage Chief for a few years. I loved the bike so much for touring and long distance, however my lifestyle changed a bit, and this bike proved a bit too big and heavy for me. After a few demo rides on the Scout and Bobber, I jumped on the Springfield. This was the perfect size for me. I'm 5'6", med to heavy build. Some of the other bikes had a long reach for my legs or arms, so I did not ride these. I realize they can be adjusted, this is just what was available at the time. These Indian bikes have the perfect balance, and are extremely comfortable to ride. The Springfield, to me, was a bit more compact and very manageable to ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great touring bike without unneeded extras I bought my Springfield in March from the Littleton CO dealership. Excellent folks there. I have since put 11,000 miles on my bike, and absolutely love it. The bike is comfortable for long hauls and the handling is excellent. The engine does throw off a lot of heat, so I recommend anyone purchasing this bike have the optional oil cooler installed.

It was in the shop for a shorted wire and now needs to go back due to rear tire pressure sensor is faulty. other than that the bike is great I ride all the time I work as a motorcycle safety instructor and it handles the course better than the little TU250s we use. This minus the small problems is the best bike i have owned

There is no better bagger in it's class, period. Once I rode it I am even more convinced that is has the best motor, fit and finish, and ride out there. I am not criticizing Harley Davidson because they manufacture nice bikes but there is no comparison to the Indian. Great job Polaris!

What brought me to it was a friend of mine who was A HD rider for over 30yrs bought an Indian in 2016, I waited till 2017 to ask him how he liked it. His response was "Love it, I'll never go back to HD". At the time I had a 2014 HD 1200 I had to see what changed this man's mind so off I went to Mom's in Foxboro Ma. Needless to say the rest is history the 1200 Stayed and the Springfield went home with me.you have to ride one to see why, there's no words to describe the Indian bike

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So far, not so good. Maybe I got the one in a million with a bad battery (hope it's just that) but this thing was dead a month after I got it, won't hold a charge and of course the warranty says I have to haul to the dealer, 3 hours from here to get it looked at...NOT a good start and a horrible warranty to boot. By the way it has 37 miles on it and not because I did not want to ride it more. Yes, I started it, at least every 3-4 days, ran it, and in the end, trickle charged it and after putting the seat and all the other junk back on 20 times to get to the battery, I'm ready to sell this thing and get an HD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Swiss Army knife of Cruisers! Versatile, poised, fantastic suspension, excellent engine...a legitimate and better alternative to the HD Road King. I have 7300 miles on my Springfield with most of that being ridden around my home in the Rocky Mountains. This bike handles the curves well whether loaded down with the optional trunk (from the Roadmaster) and passenger or flying solo. The trunk is plug and play along with the Roadmaster heated seat, which is nice as there's no need to visit to the dealer to have things reprogrammed. In case you're wondering, the trunk will lock remotely just as the saddlebags do. There is plenty of power to cruise well above the speed limit and the bike feels composed over rough roads - wet or dry. I recommend adding fork mounted wind deflectors as it calmed the "dirty" air behind the windscreen and made for a more enjoyable experience for both rider and pillion. DIY'ers will enjoy the easy oil (Engine & Transmission share the same oil) changes with an automotive style screw on filter. The bike changes from a solo cruiser to a full dresser in five minutes. Hint - if you plan to add the Roadmaster style trunk, you will need to change out the saddle bag spools to those found on the Roadmaster. Indian should make those spools standard. Also, a battery tender plug is found underneath the seat just behind the rear engine cylinder. The engine is torque monster and pulls strong down low. The digital information center MPG's are slightly lower than my hand calculated figures of 44-46mpg. The transmission shifts easily with the familiar "clunk" found on American style V twins. Fit and finish is good. Fit is as good as the HD's I surveyed. Paint quality is average to good. I believe my bike was built before the newer paint process was implemented for 2017 models as the black is not as good as HD's paint. However, keep it clean, polished and protected and it will still look good for many years. My fuel gauge developed an issue with moisture but was replaced under warranty. This was my only warranty issue to date. The brakes haul the Springfield down quickly and standard ABS is appreciated especially here where wildlife will come out of nowhere. The styling is something that everyone raves about and for good reason. The Springfield does it all - excellent handling, classic styling, retro styled engine with modern power, no fairing but yet has the ability to transform into a full blown dresser. I heavily considered the Road King but the engine brought me over to Indian. The Hero Discount, better suspension, remote locking bags, standard ABS and styling were all an added benefit. While the new Milwaukee Eight brings the iconic Road King closer to the Springfield's performance, the Springfield is the new standard in this category.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wanted the Springfield all along... I knew I wanted a Springfield from the day I first read about it. An Indian with removable windshield and hard saddle bags, perfectly capable of long distance touring that can be quickly stripped down to cruise with that classic Indian look and feel. I've had my Blue Sapphire over Star Silver (gorgeous!) Springfield for about six months now and could not be happier. Much smoother ride than what I was used to. Handles like a dream with plenty of power. A real attention getter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike So early last Spring the editor of a popular motorcycle magazine wrote a little piece praising the Indian line and showing off the new Springfield. As I respect this fellow's opinion I went to the local Indian dealer and took one out for a test ride. I was hooked. The ride, the handling the over all look of the bike had me hooked from the start. I went through the year riding my extremely fast Softail then in October I pulled the trigger and bought the red Springfield. I had the dealer make the necessary modifications; new headers and mufflers, air cleaner and cams. Okay the Springfield isn't as fast as my Softail was but I'm good with that, it's so much better of a ride than any Harley I've ever owned or ridden. Now to see how fast I can get to 60,000 miles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2017 Indian Motorcycle Constructive Criticism! 2017 Indian Springfield and at msrp $22,099 I ran into a couple of issues less than 500 miles on the bike. 1) Engine error code gear shift indicator came on during a regular ride (along with engine light that would not shut off-annoying) 2) recently as in yesterday it would not start or turn over all engine indicator lights came on and the cruise control light would blink, shift indicator would not show gear, come on this a new bike, missed a bike event. These things should be made known to new potential customers and Indian-please take this as constructive criticism! Please fix these bugs! Nice bikes but sad if they don't start. I don't wan't an expensive paper weight. What will happen after my warranty expires? I had this bike less than 2 months, I love the bike, but it is sad if I can not ride it. Customer service is great, but these issues need to be addressed! I believe in the Indian brand and hopefully all the bugs will be ironed out soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible After taking a year to research what i wanted to have in a motorcycle. Only one motorcycle was going to be for me. We welcomed a 2019 Springfield jade green over thunder black into our family. From ride one this thing was way past my expectations. For such a smooth ride it’s just way more sporty than i will ever need. This is the first 800lb motorcycle I’ve owned. It steers so easy and seams light on its tires. I’ve only put 1000 miles on so far. Looking forward to traveling longer over night trips to make good use of the saddle bags. This machine has amazing fit and finish. I just need to tell Indian motorcycles I’m so happy with my motorcycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indian Springfield 2016 Kudos on an excellent achievement in styling and engineering! Easy to handle, this Springfield fits like a comfortable pair of shoes - light, agile and it carries more than my other bike without the need for the luggage rack. If I could suggest a modification it would be to tone down the light volume on the dash board. The red LED lights are too bright and blur the gauges during night riding. Outside of that, I "love" the suspension which is much easier on my back, the control layout is right at my fingertips. The handlebars are just right and the optional seat makes it seem that this bike was made just for me. It's eye catching that's for sure. I don't ride anywhere where someone doesn't say "hello". Everyone has an Indian story and everyone has a friend or relative who had an Indian in the past. I wasn't planning on buying a 2nd bike when I bought this one, but I'm glad I have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cruiser Yet I had a Chieftain before I bought my 2016 Springfield. Thought I'd miss the sound system that the Chieftain came with. Before I took delivery on my 2016 Springfield, I had it upgraded to Stage 2, which included pipes, performance air cleaner, re-mapping, and Stage 2 cams. Now I don't miss the sound system because the exhaust note is music to my ears. The Springfield is also the best handling motorcycle I've ever had (bar none), and I've had a bunch including Harley & rice-burners. Do not try one out unless you're ready to buy a new bike, because if you do, then you will buy one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding motorcycle Indian motorcycles give you a much better value than Harley Davidson. First off the saddle bags are the shape of the fender and detachable.The windshield is detachable. The controls are chrome. The front lower legs are chrome and the best feature is the air ride...you want all that on a Harley. ...be prepared to spend thousands of dollars. ...nor to mention it is a bigger stock motor....I have never ridden a more stable bike in my life and there have been many. ..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riding Like I was a kid again!!! Once I test rode a Springfield (which is the first Indian I've ever ridden) I was sold. I'm 65 and have been riding since I was 14. The comfort, ease of handling, power and responsiveness did it. I was sold. Being only 5'5" being flat footed and balanced were a must as was the handling with a passenger on board. My wife rides her own but on rare occasions, she is my passenger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Springfield and History Besides the history of Indian I Bought my Springfield (RED) in 2016 after test riding 9 different HD models/bikes. It was a Day and Night comparison with the Harley models. Specifically the handling and smoothness of the Springfield. Not much adding needed on the model other than a stage 2 ( OMG what an awesome addition) and sissy bar with back rest. It is a Head turner every where I go and my sons love it so much that are saving to buy their own Indians! Joe R. - US Coast Guard Retired

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Features, Stability and Ride Comfort I downsized from a Roadmaster to the Springfield because it was time and the smart thing to do given my age. I fully expected to purchase another brand of bike that I had owned previously, but when I test rode that bike it took less than 5 miles to realize it didn't compare to the Indian in terms of features, road feel and overall comfort. I would have given this bike 5 stars, but the OEM handlebars were uncomfortable for me and the reduced reach bars I had installed are spread further apart than than OEM bars so I really didin't gain anything in terms of a true reduced reach. After 800 miles that is my only distraction which I guess I'll get used to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bike. I picked the Springfield because it can be a capable touring bike as well as a local cruiser. It has plenty of power for riding with a passenger and handles very well for it's size. This is a very enjoyable bike to ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Style that oozes old school Indian Great riding bike, a absolute pleasure to ride. Just be prepared to be covered up with conversations and talking, about your bike at every stop. Only real complaint is the seat, very uncomfortable at first, but after about 1000 miles it seemed to soften up and become comfortable...still could have a little more backside support. Otherwise, size and soft ride suspension is second to none.

2019 Indian Chieftain Limited Thunder Black Pearl is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 186.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME FOR 2019! I bought this Chieftain Limited on 09/26/18 and I couldn't be happier! Indian is definitely setting the standard for the modern age biker. "More bang for your buck", is an understatement! Its the many different features, and accessories that make a world of difference. This motorcycle has no shortage of them. Great bike for the many miles , and many smiles! Be prepared to get plenty of compliments! My only "con" is that I don't like the new "gunfighter" seat. I replaced it with the "genuine leather heated touring" seat. Other than that, 2 thumbs up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2017 Chieftain Ltd- great bike, not perfect Owned my Chieftain Limited since May of 2017. Best bike I've owned yet. Perfect? No, but what bike is. Likes; Power, Ride, Looks, Ergonomics, Ride Command, Power Windshield, Key FOB lock/unlock, Big Roomy Saddlebags. Can go with a 116 kit! Dislikes; Seat- way too uncomfortable after 75/100 miles (big annoy), Odd Oil Level Dipstick- needs a special tool to check/fill oil (minor annoy), Loud Honk when activating alarm system (minor annoy), Rear Shock- Air fill valve placement (minor annoy) Fun bike to ride and cruise with my lady. Just took my 1st thousand mile long ride on my Limited and it performed great. More aftermarket performance parts and accessories available coming each month it seems, which is great. Get a tuner to bring out more power and loose the heat. Buy it and welcome to the Tribe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best motorcycle I have ever ridden I rode this motorcycle during a demo ride. I enjoyed so much that I spent all morning and part of the afternoon riding it. I especially enjoyed choosing from the three different ride modes (standard, touring, sport). Once I tried the sport mode I remained in that mode because it was such a trill. The motorcycle had ample torque and was extremely responsive. The bike shifted flawlessly and cornering was like a bird in flight. If I were to purchase a new motorcycle this would definitely be the one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional comfort and ride I enjoyed the opportunity to ride the Chieftain Limited. The ride and comfort surpassed my expectations. I recently test drove the Harley Davidson Road Glide and I must say the Chieftain was far better in every aspect. The engineers at Indian really put a lot of effort into the design and operational facets of the vehicle. I'm not quite ready to purchase a new motorcycle, but when I am, i will most definitely purchase an Indian. Thank you again for the opportunity to ride a piece of art.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great handling bagger The ride quality of this amazing bike is well thought out and in my opinion, surpasses Harley in comfort. The new ride select feature is a great option on this engine abs brings the performance on par with the Harley Milwaukee 8 engine. Being a shorter rider myself, I did find it difficult to put up the kick stand while on the bike but after that everything else was easy. The slow maneuvering and dipping into turns was confidence inspiring, easy and fun. The touch screen was easy to manipulate. The movable windscreen is a great usable feature and all the controls were easy to get to for me using my thumbs. The cruise control was easy to engage and that stock sounds system blew me away! Way louder then the Harley sound system. The difference I find between this amazing bike (Chieftain Limited) and the Harley Street Glide is that the Indian has to be short shifted to stay in the correct power band. The Thunderstroke engine in these newer models do have the get up and go that is a noticeable improvement over earlier models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bagger ever! I'm comparing the Chieftain to an HD Ultra Classic Limited (2012), 2004 Honda Goldwing and 2013 Victory Cross Country Tour. It obviously lacks storage and heated grips. Wind/rain protection is reduced because it has no lowers. However, the power is better than the 103 (and it's cooler to the rider), it's power is on par with the GW and Vic. It's low speed and high speed handling are better than all 3 other bikes. It's ride isn't as plush as the Vic and GW, but light years better than the HD. Fit and finish are almost as good as the HD, but much better than the other 2. Overall I'm very happy with the Chieftain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all round bike I have been wanting a bagger for a couple years now. Looked at some other bikes but they just didn't have what I wanted until I laid my eyes upon the Chieftain Limited and I fell in love immediately. I love the new front end and all the great creature comforts. Hammering down the the big road or in town cruising, this bike does it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bike for the price I used to ride Harleys, then I bought a Indian Scout, I stripped it down and made it a solo and for a while it was my dream bike, then I wanted to travel, so I made the hard decision to give up what I loved and search for something which could carry me across the states, so last month I bought this Chieftain Limited, I rode bike off and on for many years, yet I'm still an amateur just a little here and there, I look forward to improving my skills on the road either through classes or experience, Never the I'm pleased where I'm at and I hope the best to all the riders out there both New and Experienced Ride On

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for intended purpose I began riding by racing off road, so prefer footpegs to be under me. I ride a 20 year old BMW at present, and the Indians I tried had more features, lower seat, but not as responsive handling or compliant suspension. I think the Chieftan or Roadmaster would be good on a long relaxed ride, and preferable to a Harley. It was good for the feet forward riding style, but probably would get another BMW for the money. I would consider if I had a lot of money as a second or third bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Indian Chieftain white 116 motor The motor is wonderful. I enjoyed the cruise, the mini apes were not comfortable for me, the right foot brake seemed too far forward for me, I could not check out other features as ride prep short and demo ride itself was short. Brakes good, acceleration wonderful, adjustable windshield too short. The bike sounded amazing, really good. overall i liked the bike, a bit heavy and much different feel from my current bike. I may test ride another model tomorrow. Thanks for providing the demo rides...very helpful in my consideration of my next ride. Would like to know of promotional discounts available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the bike BUT! I love the bike. Its a smooth ride. It have plenty of power/torque. The sound system is outstanding, it even sound good with the stock exhaust, I have had several comments on how great my Chieftian looks. Overall I am happy with my choice. BUT, Indian made a bike that produces way more heat than it should prompting customers to do two mods ASAP, intake and exhaust. Now those two mods should be a want not a necessity. Of the two only the intake was available. Which brings me to the availability of Indian parts. Weather they are dress up or performance they are ridiculously difficult to find. So if you want a really nice sounding smooth riding bike that turns heads Indian is the one for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Bike I rode the Chieftain limited today and the ride was smooth and comfortable. I have been a sportbike rider in the past and now have a small cruiser. There are tons of features and the radio is great. At the last demo days, I rode the chieftain that was bored out with cams and exhaust. Riding this stock model was quite a bit less impressive. Throttle response seemed a little delayed and the power was noticeably missing - hence the 4/5 star review. Still a great bike and will definitely be the bike I buy if I choose to buy Indian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Limited caught my eye, so I had to buy! I originally bought the Indian Chieftain in 2015. after riding Harley Davidson since 2006, I had to give the originator a try. The Indian is superior in engineering and it handles like the import sport bikes that I use to ride as a young man. With the new GPS System and 100 watt stereo, I had to go down and take a look. The 2017 Limited is absolutely amazing. I had to ride her with that gorgeous nineteen inch front rim. She handles like a dream, after I said to myself that she had to ride well...she's an Indian. Of course I added all of the bells and whistles. Stage 1 air cleaner, pipes, and stage 2 cams! I added floorboards for my lady and kept the nice backrest from my 2015. She is a fantastic looking and handling motorcycle. My old Chieftain held her value too. I received a fair offer, and another fifteen hundred dollars for my trade, and I walked out the owner of the Limited. Please don't take my word for it, go to your local dealer and take a look, or better yet, ride an Indian. Once you do, you will never ride anything else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Style and Sound! I test rode this bike and I love the styling and I love the sound too but it seems to me that the 111 Thunderstroke is just lacking in power! I test rode a new 2019 Indian Chieftain Dark Horse in Bronze Smoke and it had the Stage 3 116 Thunderstroke Kit in it and I was much more impressed with the power of the 116 over the 111! It's a fantastic bike but if you like to romp on your bikes from time to time and play with some horsepower like me then I definitely recommend the 116 upgrade!

He answered all of the questions that I had about my current bike and also showed and explained features that I didn't even know about.The Chieftain big bore is a lot faster on the take off and on rolling acceleration then my 2017 RoadMaster.

The seat is a lot more comfortable on the 2017 than on the 2015, love the display on the 2017, a lot more options on the dash than on the 2015. The only thing was there was no front bonnet on the limited chieftain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ride I rode the 116 version of the Chieftain Limited. Love the extra power. The height of the motorcycle has a good feel, I feel like I sit down into it, not on it. I love the adjustable height windshield, nice to be able to adjust it while riding. This one also had the upgraded stereo with the speakers in the saddlebag lids. It was nice, but not for the kind of money extra they were asking for it. Overall, if I had the cash today, it wouldn't be this model, cause I like the big classic fenders, but a Chieftain or Roadmaster would be in my garage.

Indian Chieftain Dark Horse
À partir de 34 499 $ PDSF (CA)
2019 Indian Chieftain Dark Horse is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 289.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2017 Chieftain Blackhorse I purchased this bike 5 weeks ago and have put 1500 miles on her. I absolutely enjoy riding this bike and wish I had purchased one years earlier. I say this with 35 years of riding time. I do wish all bikes didn't need an aftermarket exhaust and tune to get the right sound though. Indian did and excellent job though trying to comply with the EPAs stringent and rediculous rules. Something that I would like to see is the cruise button and high beam switch with lighting. On a dark night those switches are invisible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Indian Demo Rides I rode three Indian motorcycles yesterday, A Dark Horse Chieftain, A Chieftain and a Scout 60. The bigger Indians were a smooth ride with some throttle hesitation and a bit of excessive heat coming up from the engine. The throaty sound was nice, but my feet felt high on the floorboards, maybe something that takes some time to adjust to. Overall, pretty good bikes. The Scout 60 ran great, but was very small. I felt like a big kid on a tricycle. The 5 speed transmission kept rpm's up even at fairly low speeds, probably a good bike for someone very short to use around town. Bottom line on the big bikes is the heat. I don't think that Florida is the right place for an engine that radiates so much heat. A recommendation to buy this bike would depend on where you live.

The ride was much quicker, smoother and precise, not as heavy a feel, I think due to the newer steering geometry. Excellent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bike all around. I bought my bike January 28th 2017. In Maryland we have had odd temperatures for this season. We have been in the 70 to 80 degree range. The handling is as great as my ZX10RR. It is extremely smooth riding down the road. I have had lots of bikes over the last 30 yrs. None like this. I love my Dark Horse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Price points. Indian and the other V-Twin manufacturer. I think you have priced yourself into a tight market segment. We're not all loaded. The price of your clothing and apparel is pretty ridiculous. It's a great ride, if you can afford it. The IMRG at a national level, sometimes I wonder if you're really out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stage 2 upgrade I already own a 2019 Indian Roadmaster which i love and wanted to test ride a bike with either a stage 2 or 3 to see what i am going to choose as an upgrade. After testing the stage 2, i am satisfied that i will be upgrading to a stage 2. the power and sound is just perfect for this bike and since my Roadmaster is just a upgraded Chieftain dark horse, i will be happy to be upgrading my bike with a stage 2. BTW, i have road tested numerous bikes over the years and can say without a doubt that the Indian brand is by far the most beautiful bike out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved my 2018 I bought my Darkhorse in September of 2017 off of the show room floor at All Out Cycles and have put over 31,000 miles on it in under 2 years. I’ve had several electrical problems but it’s a machine and machines have problems. She has been a good bike and has been enjoyable to ride. I just rode her from Virginia to Sturgis, South Dakota and ended up trading my 2018 Chieftain Darkhorse to a 2019 Chieftain Darkhorse!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS BIKE Bought 2020 Chieftain 116 Ruby Smoke on Oct 1st 2019, been dreaming of owning one for years & finally did it. Couldn’t be happier, hate to Park it. Rides so nice & handles like a dream. I feel like I can do anything on it. If your thinking bout buying one, STOP, no more thinking, just get to your nearest dealer & bring it home. I added a Freedom Shields Windshield (14”) & a Heel Shifter (should be standard?)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look and ride I've had it almost one year now I love it but it has a couple of electrical issues that come and go had it checked at two dealerships and they could not reproduce them. The tire monitoring system comes up blank on the front tire while I'm riding. The radio keypad freezes up can't do anything with it. And the hand warmers don't shutdown when I turn off the bike sometimes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Scout has everything This is why I chose it: 1) It had the features I was looking for (ABS and Radiator) and enough power 2) Being a new rider at the time the center of gravity makes very easy to handle and it just felt right, and 3) the great looks. It was everything I was looking for and I fell in love with my scout. After two years I love it even more, it's just a fun bike to ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2019 Indian Chieftain Dark Horse (Bronze Smoke) Bought the is bike in Sep 2018 and now have a little over 8,000 miles on it. Time for a review. On the day of purchase I did back to back test rides of a 2019 HD Street Glide Special and a 2019 Chieftain Limited. Both great bikes and both have pros and cons but in the end I chose the Chieftain. Things I like: Features - The Chieftain has led lighting all around and I really like the adjustable windshield and locking saddle bags. I do like the three ride modes but find myself typically riding in "Standard" mode. I appreciate the rear cylinder deactivation feature but have yet to use it. Even living here in Arizona I don't find engine heat to be an issue. I really like the ride command. It's intuitive, easy to use and has all the info I'll ever need.The tire pressure monitoring system is very nice to have. The ride - The bike rides and handles great. The suspension and ride quality was a big factor for me when choosing between the Chieftain and Street Glide. The Indian was just better. I also found the ergonomics better. The Indian fits me well. For being a heavy bike it sure does handle well. Feels light and nimble. Style - Of course this is subjective but I really like the new style. Yes, it looks more like an HD but I'm okay with that as I've always liked Street Glides. And I hate to say it but I've never liked the fairing, bags and big fenders on the older Indians. Guess I'm not nostalgic. I just don't like the "dated" look. Performance - The 111 is fine for me and I like that the power is down low. Being bagger I rarely push the RPM's that high anyway. Short shifting is pretty much how I ride. Would I like more power? Of course. I've considered the stage 3 kit but to be honest don't trust the dealership to install it correctly. Right now the bike doesn't have any issues and I'd like to keep it that way. I do have stage 1 installed (Indian Performance Air Intake and Rinehart exhaust). The Rineharts sound great. Things I don't like or wish were better and things I fixed: My biggest complaint is the dealership network and availability of parts and add-ons. The HD dealerships near me seem to be well organized and have everything you can think of to add on to your bike. Not so with Indian. Lots of things aren't available and when they are they're not in stock and need to be ordered. As mentioned above I would like to add stage 2 or 3 but just don't trust them to do it correctly. I did not have that feeling with HD. With every bike I've owned my very first purchase was touch-up paint for the inevitable rock chip in the fender, fairing and bags. Can I get that for my Bronze Smoke bike? Nope, not yet. Have contacted Polaris multiple times and they don't have it yet and they won't provide the paint code for proprietary reasons. It's a small thing but I found it to be odd and a little annoying. I would also like some lower wind deflectors but those aren't available yet either, at least not by Indian. While I like the led lighting I don't like the colored lenses on the front and rear signals. I wish they were clear or smoked. I figured that would be an easy upgrade but I'm having a hard time finding them. This could be on me. I also wish the front signals were dual purpose, turn signals and running lights. There may be after market options for this already but I'm not able to find them. A couple things I had to change - The stock windshield wasn't working for me so I upgraded to the 13.7 Indian Flare windshield which is a nice improvement. I've heard good things about the Rogue seat and in the beginning I liked it. I expected it get even better after some time breaking it in but that wasn't the case. Surprisingly it got worse and after 7K miles I replaced it with an Ultimate seat. The Ultimate seat sits me a little higher but it's way more comfortable. Big difference. Also, the Ultimate seat and backrest combo was pretty much the same price as the Rogue backrest and bracket alone. Getting the Ultimate was a no-brainer. The prices of Indian accessories is a little crazy. So in summary, the things I don't like are pretty small complaints and pale in comparison to the things I like about the 2019 Chieftain Dark Horse. The bike itself is great and I hope it proves to be reliable over the years to come. My other hope is that the after market and dealership network continues to improve. For the bike, I give it five stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice bike, too expensive, not very good demo guy First, the demo van wasn't what I was told it would be. I wanted to test ride a Springfield and the dealer wouldn't prep one. Told me to wait for the demo van, which would have every model to ride. When I went they didn't have any Springfields to ride. The guy was kind of rude and said if you want to ride a Chieftain, it's the same thing. I don't know, the big fairing and all the gadgets wasn't the experience I wanted. Also, the bike was fully optioned out at $34,400. Overall, very comfortable ride with a ton of power with the 116. Great maneuverability, but the throttle seemed sloppy. About 1/8th turn of play before it would accelerate. He didn't explain tour mode vs standard vs sport before the ride. I was in tour mode, but would have preferred standard or sport if I had known.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING RIDE!! Surprisingly nimble for the size. This motorcycle is absolutely amazing!! I have been doing research for a new bike for the last 5 years, and Indian always had an intriguing style. And it has only been improving. My first bike was a 2006 Honda Shadow AERO...this machine blows that out of the water. I fully expected this bike to be cumbersome on the road and difficult to handle because of the sheer size, but boy was I wrong! It handles better than my old bike, which is considerably smaller and closer to the ground. The storage and features on this bike alone are worth the purchase, let alone the power train. I haven't been able to ride much since the purchase because of weather, but I find myself sitting in my garage just staring at it...its that beautiful!! Well done, Indian Motorcycles!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid as a Rock! I got a chance to demo this bike this week and wow! What an amazing experience. This baby had the 116 big bore upgrade, and you can really feel it. I had a concern with the 4" riser handle bars, but in the end, it was a perfect fit. The controls were easy to access and operate and the radio had decent sound as well.

Wish the drive by wire was more responsive has the lag for a seasoned biker is troubling. Floorboards are a little high for people taller than 5'10. Other than that, it's got the power and performance I like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bike! Demoed this bike at 4 corners rally in Ignacio CO. Plenty of power, loved the feel, handled like it was on rails, really like the touch screen and the power windshield. But it was the performance that really makes this bike so good. I got off this bike, went to the Harley demo fleet and rode a Roadglide special for comparison, there is none, this is a superior motorcycle! Limited dealer network and aftermarket support are drawbacks, nearest dealer is 250 miles from my house. Not to mention that it is overpriced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Updated Ride Took a demo ride yesterday at Indian KC. I currently own a 17 Roadmaster. Wanted to ride a 116 to see what’s up. Was put on a 19 Chieftain Darkhorse. First impressions: 1) Took me a few minutes to acquaint myself with the updated controls. Think most of the changes are good. 2) If money was not an issue, I’d have my on the lift at the dealer right now to do the big bore kit. The 116 is ON POINT. And finally, 3) Not a huge fan of the new look faring but am sure it will grow on me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, better than Harley, but not my Victory I rode this bike today at a Demo site. Found the standard grips to be uncomfortable, the lack of a heel toe shifter to be annoying, and the engine vibration to unacceptable. Overall, for a tall man (6'3" 255) it fits and that is important. Much better than any of 3 Harleys I also demoed today. Yet I will keep my 2014 Victory Cross Country. Don't know why Indian who I believe has a superior product to Harley Davidson seems to be trying to make bikes more and more like them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The bike I've been waiting for I have been waiting for years for this bike. After I bought my 2017 Chieftain Dark Horse brand new, i fell in love with the Indian brand. I started doing 400-500 mile days no problem. So then, it was "Man, if they ever make a fix fairing, I will have to have it". Little did I know the Challenger was going to be so performance based! So not only did I get a fix fairing bagger, but I got a highly capable one, that fits my riding style. The bike is quick, handles like a dream, so much so that some of my favorite roads are no longer my favorite, they just are so effortless on this bike. Even the base model stereo is decent enough that I didn't have to upgrade it right away. The slipper clutch makes it nice and easy on my hand on all day rides. The ONLY problem I have found, is the seat is beyond severely lacking. After about 75 miles, I was sore. After about 50, my girlfriend needed stops much more frequently. It offers little to no support. I fixed this with an aftermarket seat, and all is good again. I see myself owning this bike for a long time, and putting some serious miles on. My poor Chieftain looks sad and lonely parked next to my new favorite.

Indian Challenger Dark Horse

2020 Indian Challenger Dark Horse Thunder Black Smoke is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down a great bike! Wow-what a bike! Yes, sorry to say I was stuck in the Harley rut. Wanting something more, I ventured outside the normal and started reading. Everything I saw about the Challenger was intriguing. Now, I can say that I’ve experienced it firsthand. Power on the bike is phenomenal. I can’t wait to get stage I on the motorcycle, squeezing a little bit more. I live in Northern California and ride the hills, and this bike hugs the corners feeling secure. The brakes are powerful and commanding with no grab. I bought the bike out of state and road home 800 miles in one day. This, to me, is the testament of how comfortable the bike is, just getting on and riding. This next weekend, off to the Pacific Coast Highway 1000 mile trip, totaling now 3000 miles. No complaints at all for the bike, if anything getting used to new controls and layout. If anyone is looking for an excellent performance bagger, you can stop right here. To sum it all up, I love my Dark Horse flat black Challenger!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best New American Bagger I am a long time Victory guy and still own Vic’s, but had to add the Challenger to my stable knowing its heritage from Victory. Stock form this thing can perform but what we’re all really waiting for is the potential these bikes will have with cams and a tuner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth ride, excellent handling, & awesome power! Traded for this Dark Horse because I like the new style. Found out the ride was even better than my full dressed HD w/ air ride. My new Indian Handles better and has way more power! All in all, I am very happy with my new ride!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do yourself a favor and buy a Challenger!! I have 2500 great miles on this bike and I absolutely love it. The power is spectacular. Great torque and the top end is where the fun starts. The Challenger handles great and is a joy to ride. I can’t say enough good things about this bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort, tech, great classic looks, and great ride After about 1000 miles so far, I must say I love this bike! I use it to commute to work sometimes, just take a ride up the mountain, or whenever I feel like getting out on the road and putting in some saddle time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifetime Harley rider converted I wanted to buy a new bike this year. Actually I had made an agreement with myself that I would buy a new Harley this year. I actually attempted to connect with three different Harley dealers but none seemed interested in selling a bike to me. I decided to give an Indian a shot so I went to my closest dealer and rode a Chieftain. I like it but I wasn't "impressed." When I returned to the dealership I was eyeballing the Challenger and was told I could give it a drive if I liked. The dealership is right beside an on-ramp. By the time I hit second gear I was sold. This thing pulled like a freight train! I ran up to the next off-ramp, and turned around to come back to the dealership and signed papers. I will say that with the Dark-horse Challenger model the headlight is out of place!!! The bike is so sinister but the headlight, being bright and shining is so out of place. I invested in an aftermarket LED Headlight with Black reflectors to complete the look of "Darth Vader's Motorcycle." I did several upgrades starting with the factory mid-rise bars (perfect fit for my height) and the infinity pegs. I also added the backrest with luggage rack and an exhaust (factory exhaust is WAY too quiet.) The bike is perfect now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall I bought my bike 2 months ago. I have put it through it’s paces, here are my thoughts. Styling is excellent! Power windscreen is awesome and effective! HP and torque are awesome, always have available power when needed!!! Handling is the best! Handles like a much smaller bike!!! Cargo room, is excellent, with plenty of space. Would actually prefer to have a removable trunk sooner than later for my companion rider. With a sweeping backrest and arm supports for her comfort. Factory exhaust note could be meatier without having to buy the $1k stage 1 exhausts to get desired exhaust note. Map overlay for weather is a big ?!!! With a downpour outside my garage it didn’t show that I was in any weather. Not sure if this is because I wasn’t moving or what. The garage door opener screen cannot be figured out. There are no steps in the 272 page manual on how to set it up. :( The horn button and radio volume button need to be swapped. You have to lift your thumb too high to hit the horn, which could be dangerous in traffic. The cruise button could be better designed and user friendly. Push to turn on is ok, set/accel/coast is ok, but resuming requires one to almost overreach to pull the button back causing de-acceleration most times. Premium care products for the matte finish should be offered. I had to go to Chemical Guys to get premium care products. A 25 1/2 saddle would better suit my 5’6” frame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best motorcycle I've ever own I have the challenger for a bit less than 2 months now with aroud 4000km on it. Overall, I really like the bike. It's fun to ride on complex road, have enouph power to pull my ''larger shape'' and have fun. The equipement is great, look like the latest technology on the market. The liquid cooled engine with the stop cylinder is aswome in the trafic/hot wather. The suspension is perfect especially the adjustment for the rear. It's really a performance bagger with cool gadget. The minus. I'm under the impression the ride command 2 was not fully ready when they lunch it. There is bugs everywhere, it crashes alot, weather function don't really work, it take too much time to boot, soud is blasting when you start the bike, the connexion with the cell phone don't really work. There is a rumor that a major update is comming with apple car play and android auto. It's seems to have been planned for a wile, because it is mentionned in the instruction manual. The ECU is very fragile to pop up a warning if something wrong even if it's minimal. After my first service, they installed my air intake that was backorder. I had a check engine about a month after that. The tech said there was like 900 codes that pop-out. The bike was felling great. He just erased the codes and everything went well so far. I'm not the first one to mention it, but the passenger backrest need to be pushed further back. I have made it modified in a welding shop to push it back 2in, I also made a custom seat because the original one is garbage for a person of my weight. When we took off the cover, there is a void enouph big to put a water bottle in it. This is one of the reason I was under the impression I was sitting directly on the pan after a long ride. Would I recommend the bike? You bet! It as more personality than a goldwing but to have the same confort, you have to make some modifications to the seat and backrest in my opinion.

Indian Roadmaster
À partir de 36 499 $ PDSF (CA)
2019 Indian Roadmaster Thunder Black is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1150.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New ride in the Stable Moved from a sport tourer to a cruiser style bike. Was looking for a ride that was stylish, yet at the same time comfortable for an older rider. The Roadmaster provided me a very comfortable platform that has all the power I need while allowing me to be stable both while moving and stopped due to its lower center of gravity and frame set up. Still getting comfortable with the additional weight this bike has, and the reduced maneuverability as compared to my other bike. And I will admit that the reaction of other riders and drivers is a kick to experience. Overall, a solid bike that will provide excellent rides for the foreseeable future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from COMFORT & POWER I BOUGHT IT IN OCTOBER 2014. ALMOST 15000 ON IT. IT'S BEEN PRETTY MUCH BULLET PROOF. ADDED EXHAUST, HI-FLOW AIR, CAMS. REALLY MADE A DIFFERENCE. SOUND SYSTEM CUTS OUT WHEN USING THE USB PORT WITH A JUMP DRIVE IS MY ONLY COMPLAINT OTHER THAN POLARIS REFUSES TO MAKE A BACKREST TO FIT WHEN I'M NOT RUNNING WITH MY TRUNK. THAT'S USUALLY MOST OF THE TIME UNLESS ON A TRIP. BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE MONEY. IT'S LIKE HARLEY, COST MORE THAN IT'S WORTH. BUT I LIKE IT. ALSO WANT YOU TO KNOW I OWNED A CHIEFTAIN FROM DEC 2013 TILL OCT 2014 AND TRADED FOR THE ROADMASTER. PUT 9500 MILES ON IT. LOVED EVERY MILE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream machine I first rode the Roadmaster in 2016, have wanted one ever since. The opportunity came about for a test ride with the Indian Test ride and I traveled 275 miles to do it again. Tested as I ride, 2 up with my wife. Ride was great, had extended reach seat and was ultra smooth. HATED the mini apes. Power was the same as my 2018 HD Ultra Classic with the 107, but was roomier and was smoother overall, but with a sticker at $5000 more than the HD I ended up with the 2018 Ultra Classic. The Roadmaster still remains a dream machine for me, but with the price difference I will just have to wait for test rides as I cannot afford to have one in my garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this ride I took a rode trip to Kerrville Texas and left home on a 2006 Yamaha RoadStar and returned home on a 2016 Indian RoadMaster. The ride is phenominal. It has plenty of power and pickup. I averaged 40-45mpg on the 300 mile trip home. I can get a little over 200 miles to a tank of gas and better than that when I slow down (which I rarely do). The wife loves the backseat. It is a very large back seat. At one point on the trip I was around 110mph and she never knew it. There have been some heat issues coming off of the engine but I bought a "Crotch Cooler" from Captain itch.com and it made a world of difference. What can I say, I love this ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out standing machine. I bought this machine in Feb 2015, I had always wanted an Indian, an when Polaris bought Kings Mtn, I knew good things where ahead. Not sorry I made the purchase. Recently I put on S&S big air kit Dynojet 5 and already had stage one pipes. When I had it tuned, the tuner got 90 hp an 112 lbs of torq at back wheel. I love the fact you can take off the the bags, travel trunk an front lowers. When the out side temp gets hot, I pull the lowers off to help with heat from the motor, there is only 3 screws that hold each one on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features...quality lacking in some areas I picked up a 2016 RM a few weeks ago. On the plus side-love the features and it's the most comfortable bike I've ever owned. The features are well documented in other reviews. On the minus...terrible rattle from the windshield actuator, squealing belt drive and mediocre paint-metallic is not well done and blotchy (grey/black). Lots of rattles from the fairing over bumpy roads. Dealer "can't hear" the rattles nor quiet the belt so far. Not what I'd expect in a $30k bike. Build quality doesn't compare with Triumph and paint doesn't compare with HD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harley can’t compare Long time goldwing rider, and have ridden a few Harley’s. Also several dirt bikes, sport bikes, can am, Triumph, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki. Iron Butt, Los Angeles traffic and country roads. Was very impressed with the Indians. Goldwing like ride, very smooth engine. A bit more engine heat than a wing, but a lot less than a Harley. Exceptionally well balanced, not a low cog like the wing, but pretty close. Excellent low speed handling. The stereo and gps seems unmatched. Blows away Goldwing and Electra Glide. All materials seemed very high quality, Controls very intuitive, factory exhaust had a really nice sound, deep growl but not too loud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ride Took a demo ride 3 yrs ago at the Hot Springs Rally, went in and bought my first Indian 15 Chieftain, 3 yrs later same rally this time road a 2018 Roadmaster, stage 2 cams, VH pipes, loved all the features best was the high boy seat and mid rise bars.... Went in and talked again to Rob Gregory of Gregory Polaris same dealer i purchased the Chieftian. I was recognized by several of the staff before even getting to Rob. We talked and after finding the right one he gave me a number i could not pass up.. So again i rode to Hot Springs on one bike and home on another.. btw best riding and handling bike ive ever been on.. after 5 hrs i still felt great and was ready to ride more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clearly the benchmark for heavy cruisers/tourers I'm old. I traded a BMS K1200LT because it is tall, top-heavy, and my legs aren't what they used to be. Motivations for buying: press reviews; look; lower seat/low center of gravity; BarcoLounger back seat for wife; tendency to root for the underdog. For its class, I believe it handles well, has very good mid-range power but need more above 4,000 rpm, and is very comfortable. I have a 2016; I'd much prefer having the auxiliary light switch on the right handlebar pod to make flashing safe. Time will tell about reliability but initial quality and press reports leave my expectations very high.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the bike Have had the bike for over a year and have over 10,000 miles on it. We have had a number of issues; shock failure, oil leak, drive belt or bearing squeal(still on-going - dealer taking care of this week) and the battery. All of these were handled very well by warranty at the dealer (Smokin' Joes), particularly special was the service we got in Bettendorf, Iowa when our shock gave out on a trip. A call to corporate and 4 hours later we were on the road. Brenny's Motorcycle Clinic was top notch start to finish. Our biggest issue is the swirls in the paint. Paint is soft and only using cotton cloths it still scratches. Payed way too much money to have a bad paint job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful bike I brought the bike about a month and so far everything is great. A few items that is negative, the bike runs great in the rain except the windshield and angle is perfect to throw water in your face I'd like a better angle to deflect the rain better. The button are not easy to push with or without gloves, the seek button is holding the left or right arrow button for a length of time with isn't easy. Now the positive, it looks great and runs great. I just ran it from PA to MA about 450 miles with little discomfort. She handles better than I expected but my experience with newer bikes are limited.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch I seen the advertising on television. I was interested and thought why not take a look. After looking it over and up righting it, I knew this was a whole new world of motorcycle and I liked it a lot. After the test ride, it was the motorcycle for me. I can not thank Indian enough for coming back in the world. Thank you for building a great motorcycles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roadmaster I love the bike had it for 2 years and still have it. I am extremely disappointed in the seat the bike looks great but the seat (tan) looks terrible. I have complained while under warranty but was told it was normal. I also have a 2016 Chieftain It only has a few thousand miles on it and the seat looks fine (black) I really do have a problem with that seat looking like that and being called normal. I would think Indian wouldn't want that called normal and wouldn't want there bikes to look like that many people have commented how nice my bike loos but question why the seat looks like that. I just smile and say Indian says its normal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, solid, powerful I bought my RM a month ago and love it. The design aesthetics are well thought out and logical. Nothing is arbitrary. The bike is beautiful. The lines are smooth and flowing. Fit and finish are top notch and befitting the price. Quality components are used throughout. The bike handles very well for its size and weight. It is supremely comfortable ergonomically. Im 5' 6" and I dont have any trouble with it. All controls are very intuitive whether they be physical or electronic. This not a Goldwing. Its not supposed to be. A comparison between the two is not valid. This is a classic American tourer that has soul and character. Everything about its design and construction reflects that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from this was a test ride with two people. Fit and finish was nice on the bike. Hand controls or nice on the bike. The heads-up display was okay. The handling of the bike does not compare to the Victory Vision. My feet or higher on the floor boards that I'm used to. The fly by wire throttle has a lag. The transmission is smooth I'll tell you. If I were to buy one it would always be in sport mode. The look of the bike is nice although I would have stuck to the freedom 106 motor. You just can't get better than the victoryvision when it comes to the whole package. Power, handling, comfort. The only thing the Indian has over the Victory Vision is fit and finish

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Motorcycle I received this motorcycle as a Christmas present, December 2019. I could not be happier. The only adjustments that I made to the motorcycle was to add lowering links and changed the stock windshield to a Klockworks shorter w/curve windshield. I am 5'4" so my intent is to change the kickstand to with the flip so that I am not stretching to put it out or bring it back in. The pipes sound great. The heated seats and grips work great on long and short rides. I can't say enough about this machine without a tear to my eye. I hug my wife daily because it was a gift from her. It is smooth on the road with the feel of a car. I absolutely love it!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DO NOT Buy BLACK Trade-in, depreciation, resale is horrible. I bought mine a month ago and was offered $11,000 below what I paid. Do not trust the dealer if they tell you a color is not available. Call other dealers directly. The Quick Disconnect trunk is nice but no seat back available for the Roadmaster for around town. I don’t like riding around town with the trunk but girlfriend wants a seat back. I hope Indian offers one soon. The Chieftain seat back kind of fits but the Roadmaster seat is wider so it squeezes the seat out of shape. Good riding bike. Great safety features and other accessories.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from RoadMaster I have had the bike for a year and still enjoy it very much and is now my most used. I still and will always own Harleys but the ride comfort and styling of the RoadMaster is the main reason I purchased it. It had become uncomfortable to do long trips on the Harley due to the constant vibration in the handlebars and seat which I do not get on the RoadMaster. The only negatives I have are the sound (just used to the aggressive sound of my Harley) and I wish it had a GPS instead of having to use my phone. The other thing I found disappointing is the finish on the fairing where you can see the mold marks of some internally mounted supports.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Indian and Love It I bought the 2017 Indian RoadMaster to replace my 2004 Honda VTX 1300. The first time I saw the new Indian lineup was at the 2013 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally at the Crazy Horse monument. From that day, I knew I had to have an Indian. Little did I know that I would be buying a RoadMaster 4 years later.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New to the tribe I was on the fence between the Harley Ultra Low and the Indian Roadmaster all winter long. Both where pretty compatible with what I was looking for. Just before spring I went to Harley Davidson first just to talk. Got treated like it didn't matter if I bought a bike or not. Went to Indian the same day and they made me feel like I mattered. Was interested in what it took to get my on the bike. That's when I knew wanted to be a part of the tribe. Not only did the bike sell itself. The salesman worked with me on my trade. Harley told me to sell mine on Craigslist because used Harley's were a dime a dozen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Satisfied! Bought my Roadmaster a month ago and am extremely pleased with how it handles. The low center of gravity makes the bike feel lighter than it is. It responds easily to rider input in curves. Also enjoying the remote luggage locks, heated seat and hand grips. The bike is very comfortable. My wife rides with me and she absolutely loves the seat and back rest layout. Suspension is impressive - it's fantastic. No bottoming out or neck/back jarring has been experienced by my wife so far. I like the movable windshield, ride with it in it's highest position while cruising and get now wind. Lower it when I'm on tighter roads or in town. Love it. The power is great. Lots of torque.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturgis Demo Rides Considering a new touring bike and test drive the standard Roadmaster and Roadmaster with cam and big bore upgrades. Went on 3 Indian rides and 3 Harley Davidson rides. The stock HD Road Glide Ultra beat both versions of the Roadmaster hands down. Unless a major design change comes in the 2020 model, it will be the HD Road Glide Ultra for me. Note I have an Indian Vintage and three Harley’s and am open to either bike st this time. The fact that the 2020’s were not available at Sturgis is a big disappointment. In closing I will say the Indian transmission is far superior than the HD design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good, just beat the heat I purchased my Roadmaster a couple of days ago and just completed my 500 mile breakin ride. Flawless. Handleing and comfort were as I expected, coming of a Chieftain. Very smooth, lots of extras. First thing I did was remove the CAT as this is the main cause of the heat everyone complains about. Buy a head pipe and new slip-on's, but the CAT has to go. As I said, I put 60K on a 14 Chieftain. I learned the hard way. Once you do this you will love, love, love the bike. Everything else is just spot on. Can't wait to get out and get some real riding in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Number One in America / the World! I bought my Roadmaster two years ago in March. The first week I road it from Connecticut to Chicago, through snow in Pennsylvania. With my heated grips and seat along with anti-lock brakes and its splendid cruise control, along with stage One engine upgrade and Vance/Hines pipes I had a dream ride. Ever since then my Indian big iron has taken me where ever I have wanted to go, 20,000 miles worth so far. It is infinitely stable and easy to handle. I've been on bikes since 1950, all brands, but Indian tops the list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike, I love, I mean Love my bike. I rode a 2014 Chieftain, put just over 60K on it and traded it for a 2017 Roadmaster. I love it MORE than the Chieftan, 1st Cut out the cat, 2nd slip ons, 3rd K&N Air Filter. Then summer pull off lowers. Life is good, heat issues gone. Indian needs to move the cat back on the right pipe and move the left pipe cat to the cross over. Problem sovled. Other than that, phenominal bike. It's my daily driver, in Las Vegas, NV. Heat in the summer 120 easy. Don't forget the download after the cat removal. Indian listen, I'm a 40 year rider, move the cat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My Roadmaster I love this bike but have had LOTS of problems with it and i mean LOTS. When the bike runs it runs and handles better than any bike i have owned. This bike has also failed more than all the bikes i have owned put together. I dont think its all Indians but i do have a bad one for sure. I am thinking about trading for a 2017 roadmaster. I would of kept this bike for at least 8 years but with the issues its time to change and give Indian a fair chance on a great bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable all-day tourer! I've had my Roadmaster for 17 months now, and have ridden nearly every day. It's been a great bike, with all the torque you could want, wind protection in the winter, plenty of storage, luxurious seat, and a grin inducing throttle. Issues have been minor cosmetic problems not surprising from a new model, but still dissapointing. Plastic chrome trim needed replacing at 6 months, and the dye on the seat leather isn't holding up well. I'm also on my third audio control panel due to rubber deterioration and my third fob after my first two both just died. (Not the battery, the failures were confirmed by the dealer.) Still, as a daily rider and tourer I love the bike and the dealer has been great.

Still getting comfortable with the additional weight this bike has, and the reduced maneuverability as compared to my other bike. And I will admit that the reaction of other riders and drivers is a kick to experience. Overall, a solid bike that will provide excellent rides for the foreseeable future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from COMFORT & POWER I BOUGHT IT IN OCTOBER 2014. ALMOST 15000 ON IT. IT'S BEEN PRETTY MUCH BULLET PROOF. ADDED EXHAUST, HI-FLOW AIR, CAMS. REALLY MADE A DIFFERENCE. SOUND SYSTEM CUTS OUT WHEN USING THE USB PORT WITH A JUMP DRIVE IS MY ONLY COMPLAINT OTHER THAN POLARIS REFUSES TO MAKE A BACKREST TO FIT WHEN I'M NOT RUNNING WITH MY TRUNK. THAT'S USUALLY MOST OF THE TIME UNLESS ON A TRIP. BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE MONEY. IT'S LIKE HARLEY, COST MORE THAN IT'S WORTH. BUT I LIKE IT. ALSO WANT YOU TO KNOW I OWNED A CHIEFTAIN FROM DEC 2013 TILL OCT 2014 AND TRADED FOR THE ROADMASTER. PUT 9500 MILES ON IT. LOVED EVERY MILE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream machine I first rode the Roadmaster in 2016, have wanted one ever since. The opportunity came about for a test ride with the Indian Test ride and I traveled 275 miles to do it again. Tested as I ride, 2 up with my wife. Ride was great, had extended reach seat and was ultra smooth. HATED the mini apes. Power was the same as my 2018 HD Ultra Classic with the 107, but was roomier and was smoother overall, but with a sticker at $5000 more than the HD I ended up with the 2018 Ultra Classic. The Roadmaster still remains a dream machine for me, but with the price difference I will just have to wait for test rides as I cannot afford to have one in my garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this ride I took a rode trip to Kerrville Texas and left home on a 2006 Yamaha RoadStar and returned home on a 2016 Indian RoadMaster. The ride is phenominal. It has plenty of power and pickup. I averaged 40-45mpg on the 300 mile trip home. I can get a little over 200 miles to a tank of gas and better than that when I slow down (which I rarely do). The wife loves the backseat. It is a very large back seat. At one point on the trip I was around 110mph and she never knew it. There have been some heat issues coming off of the engine but I bought a "Crotch Cooler" from Captain itch.com and it made a world of difference. What can I say, I love this ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out standing machine. I bought this machine in Feb 2015, I had always wanted an Indian, an when Polaris bought Kings Mtn, I knew good things where ahead. Not sorry I made the purchase. Recently I put on S&S big air kit Dynojet 5 and already had stage one pipes. When I had it tuned, the tuner got 90 hp an 112 lbs of torq at back wheel. I love the fact you can take off the the bags, travel trunk an front lowers. When the out side temp gets hot, I pull the lowers off to help with heat from the motor, there is only 3 screws that hold each one on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features...quality lacking in some areas I picked up a 2016 RM a few weeks ago. On the plus side-love the features and it's the most comfortable bike I've ever owned. The features are well documented in other reviews. On the minus...terrible rattle from the windshield actuator, squealing belt drive and mediocre paint-metallic is not well done and blotchy (grey/black). Lots of rattles from the fairing over bumpy roads. Dealer "can't hear" the rattles nor quiet the belt so far. Not what I'd expect in a $30k bike. Build quality doesn't compare with Triumph and paint doesn't compare with HD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harley can’t compare Long time goldwing rider, and have ridden a few Harley’s. Also several dirt bikes, sport bikes, can am, Triumph, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki. Iron Butt, Los Angeles traffic and country roads. Was very impressed with the Indians. Goldwing like ride, very smooth engine. A bit more engine heat than a wing, but a lot less than a Harley. Exceptionally well balanced, not a low cog like the wing, but pretty close. Excellent low speed handling. The stereo and gps seems unmatched. Blows away Goldwing and Electra Glide. All materials seemed very high quality, Controls very intuitive, factory exhaust had a really nice sound, deep growl but not too loud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ride Took a demo ride 3 yrs ago at the Hot Springs Rally, went in and bought my first Indian 15 Chieftain, 3 yrs later same rally this time road a 2018 Roadmaster, stage 2 cams, VH pipes, loved all the features best was the high boy seat and mid rise bars.... Went in and talked again to Rob Gregory of Gregory Polaris same dealer i purchased the Chieftian. I was recognized by several of the staff before even getting to Rob. We talked and after finding the right one he gave me a number i could not pass up.. So again i rode to Hot Springs on one bike and home on another.. btw best riding and handling bike ive ever been on.. after 5 hrs i still felt great and was ready to ride more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clearly the benchmark for heavy cruisers/tourers I'm old. I traded a BMS K1200LT because it is tall, top-heavy, and my legs aren't what they used to be. Motivations for buying: press reviews; look; lower seat/low center of gravity; BarcoLounger back seat for wife; tendency to root for the underdog. For its class, I believe it handles well, has very good mid-range power but need more above 4,000 rpm, and is very comfortable. I have a 2016; I'd much prefer having the auxiliary light switch on the right handlebar pod to make flashing safe. Time will tell about reliability but initial quality and press reports leave my expectations very high.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the bike Have had the bike for over a year and have over 10,000 miles on it. We have had a number of issues; shock failure, oil leak, drive belt or bearing squeal(still on-going - dealer taking care of this week) and the battery. All of these were handled very well by warranty at the dealer (Smokin' Joes), particularly special was the service we got in Bettendorf, Iowa when our shock gave out on a trip. A call to corporate and 4 hours later we were on the road. Brenny's Motorcycle Clinic was top notch start to finish. Our biggest issue is the swirls in the paint. Paint is soft and only using cotton cloths it still scratches. Payed way too much money to have a bad paint job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful bike I brought the bike about a month and so far everything is great. A few items that is negative, the bike runs great in the rain except the windshield and angle is perfect to throw water in your face I'd like a better angle to deflect the rain better. The button are not easy to push with or without gloves, the seek button is holding the left or right arrow button for a length of time with isn't easy. Now the positive, it looks great and runs great. I just ran it from PA to MA about 450 miles with little discomfort. She handles better than I expected but my experience with newer bikes are limited.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch I seen the advertising on television. I was interested and thought why not take a look. After looking it over and up righting it, I knew this was a whole new world of motorcycle and I liked it a lot. After the test ride, it was the motorcycle for me. I can not thank Indian enough for coming back in the world. Thank you for building a great motorcycles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roadmaster I love the bike had it for 2 years and still have it. I am extremely disappointed in the seat the bike looks great but the seat (tan) looks terrible. I have complained while under warranty but was told it was normal. I also have a 2016 Chieftain It only has a few thousand miles on it and the seat looks fine (black) I really do have a problem with that seat looking like that and being called normal. I would think Indian wouldn't want that called normal and wouldn't want there bikes to look like that many people have commented how nice my bike loos but question why the seat looks like that. I just smile and say Indian says its normal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, solid, powerful I bought my RM a month ago and love it. The design aesthetics are well thought out and logical. Nothing is arbitrary. The bike is beautiful. The lines are smooth and flowing. Fit and finish are top notch and befitting the price. Quality components are used throughout. The bike handles very well for its size and weight. It is supremely comfortable ergonomically. Im 5' 6" and I dont have any trouble with it. All controls are very intuitive whether they be physical or electronic. This not a Goldwing. Its not supposed to be. A comparison between the two is not valid. This is a classic American tourer that has soul and character. Everything about its design and construction reflects that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from this was a test ride with two people. Fit and finish was nice on the bike. Hand controls or nice on the bike. The heads-up display was okay. The handling of the bike does not compare to the Victory Vision. My feet or higher on the floor boards that I'm used to. The fly by wire throttle has a lag. The transmission is smooth I'll tell you. If I were to buy one it would always be in sport mode. The look of the bike is nice although I would have stuck to the freedom 106 motor. You just can't get better than the victoryvision when it comes to the whole package. Power, handling, comfort. The only thing the Indian has over the Victory Vision is fit and finish

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Motorcycle I received this motorcycle as a Christmas present, December 2019. I could not be happier. The only adjustments that I made to the motorcycle was to add lowering links and changed the stock windshield to a Klockworks shorter w/curve windshield. I am 5'4" so my intent is to change the kickstand to with the flip so that I am not stretching to put it out or bring it back in. The pipes sound great. The heated seats and grips work great on long and short rides. I can't say enough about this machine without a tear to my eye. I hug my wife daily because it was a gift from her. It is smooth on the road with the feel of a car. I absolutely love it!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DO NOT Buy BLACK Trade-in, depreciation, resale is horrible. I bought mine a month ago and was offered $11,000 below what I paid. Do not trust the dealer if they tell you a color is not available. Call other dealers directly. The Quick Disconnect trunk is nice but no seat back available for the Roadmaster for around town. I don’t like riding around town with the trunk but girlfriend wants a seat back. I hope Indian offers one soon. The Chieftain seat back kind of fits but the Roadmaster seat is wider so it squeezes the seat out of shape. Good riding bike. Great safety features and other accessories.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from RoadMaster I have had the bike for a year and still enjoy it very much and is now my most used. I still and will always own Harleys but the ride comfort and styling of the RoadMaster is the main reason I purchased it. It had become uncomfortable to do long trips on the Harley due to the constant vibration in the handlebars and seat which I do not get on the RoadMaster. The only negatives I have are the sound (just used to the aggressive sound of my Harley) and I wish it had a GPS instead of having to use my phone. The other thing I found disappointing is the finish on the fairing where you can see the mold marks of some internally mounted supports.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Indian and Love It I bought the 2017 Indian RoadMaster to replace my 2004 Honda VTX 1300. The first time I saw the new Indian lineup was at the 2013 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally at the Crazy Horse monument. From that day, I knew I had to have an Indian. Little did I know that I would be buying a RoadMaster 4 years later.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New to the tribe I was on the fence between the Harley Ultra Low and the Indian Roadmaster all winter long. Both where pretty compatible with what I was looking for. Just before spring I went to Harley Davidson first just to talk. Got treated like it didn't matter if I bought a bike or not. Went to Indian the same day and they made me feel like I mattered. Was interested in what it took to get my on the bike. That's when I knew wanted to be a part of the tribe. Not only did the bike sell itself. The salesman worked with me on my trade. Harley told me to sell mine on Craigslist because used Harley's were a dime a dozen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Satisfied! Bought my Roadmaster a month ago and am extremely pleased with how it handles. The low center of gravity makes the bike feel lighter than it is. It responds easily to rider input in curves. Also enjoying the remote luggage locks, heated seat and hand grips. The bike is very comfortable. My wife rides with me and she absolutely loves the seat and back rest layout. Suspension is impressive - it's fantastic. No bottoming out or neck/back jarring has been experienced by my wife so far. I like the movable windshield, ride with it in it's highest position while cruising and get now wind. Lower it when I'm on tighter roads or in town. Love it. The power is great. Lots of torque.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturgis Demo Rides Considering a new touring bike and test drive the standard Roadmaster and Roadmaster with cam and big bore upgrades. Went on 3 Indian rides and 3 Harley Davidson rides. The stock HD Road Glide Ultra beat both versions of the Roadmaster hands down. Unless a major design change comes in the 2020 model, it will be the HD Road Glide Ultra for me. Note I have an Indian Vintage and three Harley’s and am open to either bike st this time. The fact that the 2020’s were not available at Sturgis is a big disappointment. In closing I will say the Indian transmission is far superior than the HD design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good, just beat the heat I purchased my Roadmaster a couple of days ago and just completed my 500 mile breakin ride. Flawless. Handleing and comfort were as I expected, coming of a Chieftain. Very smooth, lots of extras. First thing I did was remove the CAT as this is the main cause of the heat everyone complains about. Buy a head pipe and new slip-on's, but the CAT has to go. As I said, I put 60K on a 14 Chieftain. I learned the hard way. Once you do this you will love, love, love the bike. Everything else is just spot on. Can't wait to get out and get some real riding in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Number One in America / the World! I bought my Roadmaster two years ago in March. The first week I road it from Connecticut to Chicago, through snow in Pennsylvania. With my heated grips and seat along with anti-lock brakes and its splendid cruise control, along with stage One engine upgrade and Vance/Hines pipes I had a dream ride. Ever since then my Indian big iron has taken me where ever I have wanted to go, 20,000 miles worth so far. It is infinitely stable and easy to handle. I've been on bikes since 1950, all brands, but Indian tops the list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike, I love, I mean Love my bike. I rode a 2014 Chieftain, put just over 60K on it and traded it for a 2017 Roadmaster. I love it MORE than the Chieftan, 1st Cut out the cat, 2nd slip ons, 3rd K&N Air Filter. Then summer pull off lowers. Life is good, heat issues gone. Indian needs to move the cat back on the right pipe and move the left pipe cat to the cross over. Problem sovled. Other than that, phenominal bike. It's my daily driver, in Las Vegas, NV. Heat in the summer 120 easy. Don't forget the download after the cat removal. Indian listen, I'm a 40 year rider, move the cat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My Roadmaster I love this bike but have had LOTS of problems with it and i mean LOTS. When the bike runs it runs and handles better than any bike i have owned. This bike has also failed more than all the bikes i have owned put together. I dont think its all Indians but i do have a bad one for sure. I am thinking about trading for a 2017 roadmaster. I would of kept this bike for at least 8 years but with the issues its time to change and give Indian a fair chance on a great bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable all-day tourer! I've had my Roadmaster for 17 months now, and have ridden nearly every day. It's been a great bike, with all the torque you could want, wind protection in the winter, plenty of storage, luxurious seat, and a grin inducing throttle. Issues have been minor cosmetic problems not surprising from a new model, but still dissapointing. Plastic chrome trim needed replacing at 6 months, and the dye on the seat leather isn't holding up well. I'm also on my third audio control panel due to rubber deterioration and my third fob after my first two both just died. (Not the battery, the failures were confirmed by the dealer.) Still, as a daily rider and tourer I love the bike and the dealer has been great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ride I have ever owned Bought mine about 18 months ago. Added a few touches, all Indian accessories. This bike turns heads no matter where I go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth, comfy ride I test drove the Indian roadmaster at Daytona bike week. It was a great ride! Smooth and comfortable! The sound from the radio was really good and I like the navigation setup. Only thing I wish was better was the guys running the demo fleet would show you more on the bike to try out during the ride. I didn’t even realize half the features it had til I went to a dealership and a salesman showed me the other features I missed on the demo.

The Roadmaster was excellent, the thunder horse had a lot of power but I was too cramped with my long legs and the seat was not comfortable. The scout bobber was quick and nimble, very fun around town bike and seemed just as quick and the thunder horse. Had a very good time and came away with good info on the bikes. Dealership was very clean and the people there are awesome to talk to. Good amount of inventory to choose from. Gave me something to think about for sure!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Test Ride with wife. My wife and I went to an Indian demo days at our local dealer and scheduled a ride on a Roadmaster Elite. The bike is great looking and the controls seem to be well placed and functional. I started the ride with the windshield in the lowest position but soon raised it to its highest position. We are used to riding a GoldWing. My wife's feedback was that she felt vibrations in the seat and the exhaust was loud. she liked the arm rests. The travel trunk and side bags ere well made and have a lot of volume. The engine response was about what I expected for a large touring bike. Shifting and braking were easy. I definitely sensed a higher center of gravity when coming to a stop and felt the balance was more of a challenge than I'm used to. Once moving the balance was good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty darn nice. This was a demo ride during the Barber Vintage Fest in Birmingham, AL. The ride was quite good and handling became very neutral above parking lot speeds. Handlebar controls were easy to use, though I was not versed in all that can be done with the other buttons, screens and modes. Which meant I didn't realize the throttle response settings could be in different stages. Hence, sport mode was not appropriate in close company of other demo riders. However, that setting certainly showed how eager the engine can be! Not a bad thing... This was an enjoyable taste of the top tour model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable I trust road the roadmaster elite and man how comfortable. The seat has obviously been upgraded from last year. I could sit in that saddle for hours. Such a smooth and stable ride also. It doesn't corner quite as easily as the chieftain but for it's size it corners better than most full dress touring bikes. It's probably my next bike!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with my 2018 Roadmaster Elite I was so excited to take her home! What a smooth ride. She shifts smooth as silk, from 1st through 6th, the transmission is spot on. Neutral is found easily when needed and each gear has the proper torque and range. The 111 Thunderstroke is a dream, and even the stock pipes sound just fine...might want a little deeper and louder, but she’s great right off the showroom floor as is. Storage space is plentiful, bring everything I need and everything is safe and secure, waterproof, and easily accessible, from the trunk, to the saddles, to the two lowers and even the dash compartment, perfect. The electronics are fantastic. Cruise control works perfectly and switches are improved over past years. The RideCommand system is fantastic, and the USB or mobile sync are great. The customizable display screens give you everything you need, and more than you could ask for. And the sound, WOW...300 watts of power. Even at 90mph, sound is plentiful...I have never even gone over 8 on the dial, and it is speed sensing...one nitpick, the navigation volume is even louder then the music, eek. But wow, music sounds great. All of the bling is amazing, from the Pinnacle mirrors, floorboards, chrome galore, and bumper to bumper, everything is form fit and finish, perfect. The paint is gorgeous, the showroom didn’t do it justice, the sun makes the whole bike glow and shimmer...between the blue, the glass flakes, and the chrome...WOW. She handles like a dream, from high speed curves to slow parking lot maneuvers in first, she instills confidence in the operator like no bike I’ve ever owned. So far I’ve only added the driver’s backrest. I’m 6’2” and 350 pounds, I’m also lowering the floorboards and adding a touring windshield...I think, for now, that is all she needs...she came near perfect right off the floor. Great job Indian...and kudos Indian Motorcycle of Charlotte on running the first, finest, and fastest Indian dealership in the world.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Test ride for two up riding. I took my wife on a test ride as we are considering a different two up bike. I liked the features of the motorcycle from the abs brakes to ease of use for the controls. For me handle bars where not in the best position. Change requires aftermarket parts. Seat for both rider and passenger seemed good but test rides are to short to really know. Biggest factor for low rating is the heat both rider and passenger have to contend with. Temp was low 80s wind 10 to 12 mph. In a 20 minute test ride that included interstate and city traffic. The heat as a result of the lowers and air vents left the backside of my thighs medium well done. My wife said the heat on her calves and up into her chest area had her sweating in two miles. In contrast the Chieftains with out lowers allowed for better air flow that didn't concentrate heat. I would give 4.5 stars to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a blast! I test rode this baby at the Laughlin River Run. The power this has is out of this world. Roll on the throttle in 6th gear going 60 and it just takes off! Very smooth as well! My only concern was the height and position of the handle bars. I'm used to a Harley Limited. I think the grips are just a touch lower. I'm sure I could get used to the higher bars. But I was very impressed with the power and ride!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features and awesome paint on the elite Great power and features , not happy at all with the heat coming from the catalytic converter horrible spot to put it so it can cook your leg ? I will change out the whole exhaust as soon as possible and it's not cheap either ? And will upgrade air filter as well along with having to get the computer re mapped .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handled and Rode Wonderfully! Drove this during the MB Sprig Rally Demo Truck event. Easy to sign up and ride, the route was a great mix of traffic, windy back roads and highway cruising, and the bike performed spectacularly. I currently ride a HD Road King and this has me thinking seriously of switching to an Indian Full Dresser!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just not for me I have ridden and owned a wide variety of motorcycles including the touring bikes from Yamaha, Honda and Harley Davidson so I have a pretty good baseline. This bike just was not what I expected given the hype. It was uncomfortable after just a short time and the seat felt almost wooden, the switches were not easy to reach especially for a left hand turn and I have large hands. I expected a smooth motor but the vibration rivaled that of an older Harley. I did not like the instrument/gauge layout with the speedo and tach opposite of most motorcycles.I found the handlebar placement to be raised too high which made the bike additionally uncomfortable and cumbersome to maneuver at parking lot speed. I just don't like the look of the bike either but that is a personal preference, I am not a fan of white bikes so maybe that was a factor in the look. Not was all bad, the foot controls were nicely placed and easy to reach and operate. I am happy that I had the opportunity to try the top of the line Indian but this bike just wasn't for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bets of the best I knew I had to own this bike the moment I saw it. Beautiful in every respect. Simply glows in the sunlight - a head turner everywhere I go. It handles like a dream with all the horse power anyone could ask for. It truly is "Indians Best of the Best"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Test Ride I test rode a Roadmaster with the higher and 2" farther back seat. Really enjoyed the comfort of the rise and the mega amounts of leg room. Would love to have one but can't afford that kind of payment.

2020 Indian FTR 1200 Thunder Black is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from FTR 1200 review Test rode a FTR in Sturgis. What an awesome bike!!! Tons of power and features and lots of aftermarket accessories. I currently ride a Victory Boardwalk but came off of sport touring bikes, the FTR handles and pulls like a sport bike with a comfortable riding position

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indian FTR 1200 The Indian FTR 1200 delivers as it should. It has plenty of power. The suspension was on the stiff side which I liked. My only gripe with the setup is that it had a slight sportbike feel to the seat in that it was leaning forward.

Indian FTR 1200 S
À partir de 17 499 $ PDSF (CA)
2020 Indian FTR 1200 S Indian Motorcycle Red over Steel Gray is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bike Bought it a month ago and already have 1200 miles on it. Sport mode is great once you get used to it. My biggest and only complaint so far is the limit the top speed to 124 mph and you can tell the bike could easily go past that if they let it. 124mph is a kinda sketchy on a naked style bike this light... but atleast give us the option to be able to go faster.
Date published: 2020-07-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The FTR 1200S exceeded my expectations! This bike is solid and fast. It's an old man's dream when it comes to nostalgia and performance. I knew I had to have one when I first saw it but didn't know I would like it this much. Updated features are incredible and easy to use. If you're a bike guy and want to take a break from cruisers and touring bikes this is the bike for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bike! Absolutely love my FTR! My only complaint (and not a big enough complaint to reduce from 5 stats) is the range per tank of gas on this bike. Wish the tank was a little bigger. Would be tough to take it some places in fear of running out of gas. Other than that this thing is amazing! Handles great, looks good, and so much power!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from fuel injection The FTR1200S race replica is a sharp looking bike but is a bit heavy and feels big but still handles great. There is a lot of good about this bike but there is one bad thing that needs to be addressed. The fuel injection, it has some serious lean condition issues that really need to be sorted out by Indian. It runs so poorly on start up that the check engine light regularly comes on due to an apparent cylinder misfire code. If I try to leave before 150-175 degree engine temp. it stutters and lurches and has stalled several time almost causing me to tip over and once pulling out of my driveway and again at an intersection. It is also causing noticeable surging at around 4,000 RPM which is right at highway cruising speed. Waiting to see if there is an update or something performed at the initial service that hopefully corrects this. That issue aside I'm very happy with the ergonomics and handling of the bike. It gets a lot of looks and compliments! If the fuel injection issue can be sorted out the FTR would definitely get an excellent score from me and a lot of other owners ! Overall I am happy with the FTR and l glad that I purchased the replica edition. It's a beautiful bike that is a blast to ride and a joy to look at. Overall I think Indian did a very nice job of putting together a great package for a first model year production.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goodbye Ducati 999, Hello Dark Horse Daddy like, and momma approves! after getting marry, my wife pressure me to get rid of the sport bike, but I have this inner thirst for the open open road. After many negotiations and discourse, she finally approve a solution. She will let me get an Indian if I get rid of the Ducati. No problem! At this age and 3 kids, it's definitely time to slow down and enjoy the view. No better bike than an Indian Dark Horse to cruise toward midlife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Test Ride of the Chief Dark Horse® I was stopping by to pick up some parts for my bike and noticed that the had a Demo event going on. So on my way out I walked by to see what they had brought. I've always been a fan of the Dark Horse bikes. The old school look with some nice high tech features. I took the test drive and was not disappointed. It throttled up nicely and felt solid. It takes the curves rather well. I like this particular model mostly because of the no frills, basic look. Even though they have plenty of accessories that you can put on. For me, I like it just the way it is. When I wear out my current bike I plan on getting one of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth!! Test rode an Chief Dark Horse and loved it. Besides the fact it's pretty much murdered out it was smooth to ride. The throttle response was nice with out being choppy in 1st gear like my Harley was when I got it. Shifting was nice, not to much work or overly loud like some bikes. And the biggest selling point for me was the suspension. I hit a pothole every bit of six inches deep and about a foot wide, going 25 mph. I barely felt it. And on the highway that engine is a BEAST. 4th gear, 70 mph, and I could still feel I was in the power band and had 2 gears left. Again loved it, can't say enough good things about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream come true plus some Never thought could afford an Indian which has been a dream bike since I was a kid. Loved the price which was cheaper then the Harley's I was looking at. Has a better ride nice and soft with plenty of power to get up and go. It especially is a head turner that gives off a big WOW feature when people see it. My first add on was the pathfinder lights, head lightbis good but wanted a wider spread of light. It also really enhanced the look of the bike. Would not trade this bike for any other except maybe 2017 chieftain with new touchscreen. lol! But seriously I love my bike and it already has its place in our family

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Darkhorse! Well, I have had this for a year now and finally have been able to purchase most all of the options that I wanted for it. The bike runs really smooth and is a great ride. On the negative side, there are still 2 items that are an issue. One, after the bike sits in the garage for a few days and you get on it and ride down the road, the first time you try to put the bike into 2nd gear, it takes all the pressure I can come up with to get it to shift! And two, the throttle response is a joke. If you turn the throttle quickly, the bike is like it is confused and doesn't know what to do. This is quite embarrassing when you are trying to impress somebody! I now have the complete Stage 2 kit in the bike and while it does seem to have gained some power, the throttle response still sucks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive I got my Dark Horse last fall and will say that she never seems to disappoint me. After the 500 mile servicing I took her for a two day 1,000 mile ride to the Ozark's Mountains to see how well she took the curves. I find myself not only satisfied with the handling but so far she is a dream come true. The cornering on this bike is every thing a motorcycle should be. After riding Harley for decades I find this motorcycle is not only easier to handle but a lot more enjoyable to ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love This Bike! After several years of riding, I think I finally found the one I will keep for a while. I love this bike. The way the Dark Horse looks with the Indian style and the ride is so smooth and easy. Everywhere I go, It seems to draw attention and a lot of positive feedback. I traded my Harley Fatboy Lo for this Dark Horse and I have never looked back. The Dealership, Treasure Coast Indian ,in Hobe Sound was Great with everything and very helpful. Made me fell at home as most of their staff came from the local Harley Dealer. My wife still has her Soft tail CVO ( the Beauty) and this is the" Beast"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kiwi Indian Dark horse Bought my Dark Horse in May 2016 and have loved it ever since. Everyone except my wife knew it was on order, unfortunately the day it tuned up at home i was away on business, so i received a message from my surprised wife to say "your new black baby has arrived and is safe n sound", needless to say this was not the first time a new toy had arrived without her knowledge (or will it be the last). To me Indians have always been the pinnacle of motorcycles, and this bike proves it. I have owned so many bikes over the years, but this one is a keeper. These bikes are so cool in every way Have added a pillion seat, pegs, sissy bar (for the wife, she loves it too), Rinehart mufflers (sounds awesome), Wimmer high flow air intake, mapped and tuned and more recently ape hangers. Still to come are stage 2 cams and Freedom Performance dual headers. Indians are well respected here in New Zealand due to our Kiwi legend Burt Munro (the worlds fastest Indian).

I purchased the dark horse last fall, after test driving others I came back to this one, it has amazing handling it fits the best of all I tried feels like I am taking it for a ride not it. Is taking me for a ride absolutely love this bike ! Only 2 flaws one is the heat from the pipes gets unbearable needs a better heat deflector and the paint on the front fender almost like it has one coat and not sealed after only 2 rides it's all chipped looks like little white pebbles so that's disappointing ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bike and Better Staff! During a quick family trip to New Mexico my twin brother and I noticed the local Indian dealership had a demo day. Being avid bike enthusests from upstate NY we couldn’t pass on the opportunity to experience New Mexico on our favorite means of transportation! The sign up was quick and easy and they even let our wife’s ride with us! We were able to sample several bikes with the amazing staff of Albuquerque, Indian dealership! They even took us on a personal tour ride to ensue we were able to experience an additional bike without our limited amount of time! We can’t thank the guys of Albuquerque Indian dealership for being so welcoming to a couple guys looking to get the most out of and opportunistic moment with our wife’s! We will absolutely be looking at the Indian line for our next bikes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark side of riding I've had my Chief Dark Horse for 2 months. This is the best bike I have every owned (I have owned harley and honda.)! Maintenance won't kill your wallet, and neither will parts and accessories. The comfort and ride of the bike has taken me 2 hours before a break. The big 111 Thunderstroke has a ton of power, regardless of what gear. Averaging 37.4 mpg solo, and 35 mpg with a passenger. My only displeasure is the lack of aftermarket parts, but, in my opinion, that does not take away from the value, or the prestige of owning my Dark Horse. -Live free and ride on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it's all I have wanted and expected in a sled I am extremely happy with it. I am some what disappointed in the price of the clothing apparel. I would love to add new exhaust and bags but the price is to far out of my finances. It has as much power that could ever be needed. Also The guys and girls at Elkhart Indian are the best. They have taken such good care of all my needs and that was very important in helping me with my decision before buying my Dark Horse. I spoke with Chris before purchasing the bike and he gave me all the answers that were of great importance too me. I thought of buying a Harley but the Indian was by far the best choice for me. Looks, were first in my decision. It just has the best look and style that is by far better than any Harley!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my bike!!! Have had my bike for about a month. Have just over 1100 miles with no problems. This replaced my Harley that I rode almost everyday. I am sold on Indian have four other bikes but hardly ride them now. With my Harley I would switch between my bikes weekly. I just can get off this bike. The only thing that I would say is the seat takes a few miles before it is broke in. Would recommend this bike to anyone looking to change from the HD brand. This bike has power in every gear. With the HD would have shift down to pass don't have to do anything but roll back on the throttle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bookmarked for my next bike purchase I was finally able to test ride a 2019 Chief Dark Horse and it exceeded all my expectations. What an absolute road crusher! I currently own a 2018 Scout Bobber and have the Chief Dark Horse pegged as my next bike.....dependant on one singular change: PLEASE give us some color choices Indian!!! It is such a beautiful bike, but all of them are black. Indian has some of the best colors in the motorcycle industry (check out their scout line) so it only seems natural that more color options should come to the Chief Dark Horse. Pssst: White Smoke is the color I want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bike I've had the Darkhorse for 3 months, love the balance can hard over steering locked, slow speed turns with my girl behind me. Love under turning the other big bikes. Open highway its a dream cruse control on. Mountain roads around Cherokee NC a lot of fun, working my way to scraping holes in each side floorboard pans outside corners. The Thunder Stroke loves the Mountain roads two up at 280 lb no problem. So far I'm enjoying the heck out of the bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Motorcycle I really enjoyed demoing this bike. I was especially impressed with its slow speed handling. Most other big bikes feel awkward turning around in a parking lot, but the Indian was confidence inspiring. Out on the road it was very smooth and developed power right from idle. No need to rev this bike even to 5000 rpm. If I had any complaint it was the heat from the motor sitting at traffic lights. But, hey! this bike was built for the open road.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polaris Industries does it again! I purchased this bike a few weeks ago, i had a 2007 Victory Vegas before. I loved the Vegas, the Dark Horse just takes those feelings and adds more. This is my first bagger and I don't see myself ever changing from a Polaris motorcycle or from a bagger. Awesome styling, phenomenal engine in the Thunder Stroke 111, this is the first bike I've ever heard that I'd consider leaving the stock exhaust on. I hope to have this bike for a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At long last... I have wanting an Indian Chief since seeing an early '50s model a friend owned back in the seventies. The Gilroy version came and went, the Kings Mountain version was too expensive. Now the latest (and I think greatest!) version has come around. I came to a point in life that I can afford one and no-one can tell me I can't have one. I know they are marketing the Dark Horse at a younger demographic, but at 60, I still feel young enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bike for the Money I bought a 2016 Dark Horse two weeks ago and have been impressed with it so far. I do have the windshield, saddle bags , engine guard and extra driving lights installed that almost make it a Vintage. It has great power and torque in all gear ranges and the engine is smooth at all speeds. Handling surprised me for how heavy it is and alludes confidence when riding. Fit and finish is good, but the Vintage and Springfield appear to be built better (some rattles on larger bumps). I plan to keep this a long time and look forward to many years of great rides.

I can praise enough the team of engineers, designers and painters at the Indian factory. You can tell they all take great pride of their jobs. Thank you all for helping me leaving my dream. Now back on the road ;)

2019 Indian Springfield Dark Horse Thunder Black Smoke is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 106.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Springfield Dark Horse The Springfield is super comfortable, smooth, powerful and sexy! Easily my favorite one tested during demo days and the matte white with the blacked out engine is beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Springfield Dark Horse I was out of riding for almost 40 years. I bought a Kawasaki EN650 Vulcan back in early 2019. Took the 2-day MSF and was off and running again. Rode that back for one year and then made the jump to Indian. I have not been disappointed in any of the experiences. The staff at Mall of Georgia Indian were great and the bike quality and looks are still amazing to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth finish Every time i look at my bike in the garage, i find more details to it that i hadn't seen before, stainless steel brake lines name placards with indian stamped on it. The dark horse in Thunder smoke is such a nice look with very few glossy parts that it balances well from one black to the next. Such a smooth ride & a head turner. As mean as this bike looks it has the power to back it up. Coming from street bikes for 18 years transitioning to this cruiser wow the power does not let you down, the balance from a big cruiser on this bike is phenomenal. You need to take a test ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ride and power I ride (and love) a 2016 Springfield. The new model feels similar, but the 116 motor is so much more powerful. They set me on the ride mode of touring, and the around town riding was very similar to my own bike. The difference came when I got to the highway and accelerated. There was a lot of power, which continued in every gear and at every RPM. Very fun ride. The controls felt smooth. Only complaint was that I prefer a windshield at highway speeds (it was a cold day!).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to like this bike... I test rode a Springfield and the ergonomics did not work at all for me (I'm 5'10"). My knees felt like they were pushing into my chest when I had my feet resting on the floorboards and it also sorely needed a heel shifter (did I just not see it?). The top of the windshield was directly in my line of sight and I experienced intense buffeting above 35mph to the point that it was very uncomfortable. The speedometer is way too low on the tank so I had to look down to check the display which takes my eyes off of the road. I'll stick with my Scout. It may not have the size and weight that would be ideal for long slab rides but I can stretch out, see my speedo without lowering my head and ride buffeting-free until above 70mph.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits Demo rode it at Sturgis. Was the best demo experience of them all, they just let me take it for a half hour. Ride was quick and agile on the road to Deadwood,,I didn't want to turn around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loose It rode SMOOTH..... throttle was "sloppy", and the shifter lever took MILES to shift gears. The "Fly by wire" was disturbing..... Definitely powerful, compfy to ride. Never got it out of 4th gear. Low center of gravity. Steering was shakey….

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Indian I bought the 2019 Springfield Darkhorse to complement my Chief Vintage that I’ve owned for 3+ years. Having both now is great. They are the same but different. The shorter wheelbase and steeper rake on the Springfield gives it quicker steering and a lighter feel. Both have the 111 engine but are mapped different. My Vintage is black with tan leather and my Springfield is white smoke. I put the 5 inch shorter tinted Jack Daniels windshield on the Springfield. Locking bags on the Springfield. I love both and it’s fun having a choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Motorcycle I have owned Had this 2018 Indian Dark Horse for over 3 months now. I was hooked when I did a demo ride in May 2018. Not only is the look of the bike great, but it handles so well with the engine. I bought the smoked windscreen and black Freedom exhaust with stage 2 cams. I have had Harleys and I own two Victory's. This is now my favorite bike!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy and stylish I rode the Springfield Dark Horse about twenty miles total at a demo day. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to handle and by the effortless power. I've ridden plenty of Harleys as well and the Indian is a better ride by far. The suspension soaked up bumps and the bike actually seems happy to go around corners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marvelous Engineering!! The Ride, acceleration, handing/cornering and attractiveness of this bike makes it stand alone amongst all cruiser type motorcycles. A little pricey, but when you compare it to the Harley equivalent, then it hits a home run!! Thanks Indian!! Great engineering!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mr. This bike handled well. Grips felt a little cheap, and the power was so-so mid way through the gears. Seat was tall for me, but is adjustable to my knowledge. I liked the controls once I got used to them. Would like to see a heel shift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Decision When looking to replace my ‘12 HD Street Glide, test rode Road King Special and this...done. Brought the sundown home the following week. Best decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2019 Springfield Darkhorse I took one of these out today on a demo ride. It was outfitted with probably the tallest ape hangers Indian offers (unlikely aftermarket on a demo bike) as they were definitely more than shoulder height on me. I had it in sport mode which definitely provided plenty of pep in its step partnered with at least the Stage 1 exhaust and high flow air cleaner (unsure if had Stage 2 cams). No complaints, smooth ride, plenty of power, and no faring blocking the road ahead of me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Motorcycle I’ve Owned Couldn’t be any happier with the 2019 Springfield. Plenty of power, comfortable ride & handles like a much smaller bike. Very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Demo days test ride I was very curious about this bike. I have a Victory Cross Roads Classic and this is basically what my bike became after the production stop of Victory. The bike was the most comfortable of the 3 that I demoed; Roadmaster, Chieftain LTD, and Springfield. The seat was a bit further back than the other 2 giving me more leg room so I didn't feel as cramped, although still not as much room as my Victory. I would have to go with an extended reach seat to be more comfortable. I also wasn't happy with the position of the instrument cluster. It was positioned to far down on the fuel tank so in order to see it I had to look down and take my eyes off the road to see it. Having it mounted higher on the tank, or as a gauge between the handle bars would be a better spot for it. That way just a quick glance will give you everything you need to see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike...with some small drawbacks I have had my 2018 Indian Springfield Dark Horse for about 10 months now. I absolutely love the look of the flat black bike and feel it has the right touch of chrome. I'm a bigger guy so I like the overall size of this bike. Fit and finish are excellent. I love the touch of a powder coated frame. Very durable! Kudos for the remote lockable bags. Little annoyances - Tire pressure sensors seem to be an issue... they monitor low on initial startup. Turn bike off and on again and they read correctly (checked against manual gauge). Mine doesn't have different "modes" as it's an 18 model - however, an upgrade on the electronics would be nice Indian! That being said, if you're a short shifter, you'd love this but I feel like power plateaus at 3,000 RPM in first and second. Feels like you run out of steam at 2800 to 3000 RPM and you have to shift to get it moving. This may be addressed with the new "modes" but how about a retrofit for those of us early adopters with the 18 first year model DH?! Wish Indian would have done red dash lighting on the Springfield Dark Horse like they did on the Chief Dark Horse. This is just a "cool factor" thing. Overall this is a superb bike and it feels much lighter to ride than it really is. When you ride this and "feel" it, you really don't get the feel that you're on an 800 lb motorcycle. The engineers did a superb job on that front and honestly I love the suspension on this bike. It has a great amount of travel and makes for a comfortable ride. You will not "clench" up going over potholes, road cracks or railroad tracks. Big plus there! I'd love a little more comfort in the seat for when I'm riding for longer than 3 hours, but that's a normal, and universal, gripe from anyone that rides longer distances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected My last bike was a Yamaha Virago over 30 years ago. I was a little concerned about the weight. I shouldn't have been. Very comfortable with a low center of gravity. I got the red seat package as well as highway bar and passenger boards. Just waiting for the windshield and running lights. Didn't make me too happy. I think the weight may have had something to do with me escaping possible injury or worse. One of those plastic totes (16X24X16 quesstimate) fell out of the truck ahead of me (doing speed limit, 70 mph, and back a ways. No tailgating). It's bouncing, I'm guessing which way is it going. I guessed right but not right enough. I clipped it going about 70. My foot was resting on the highway peg attached to the highway bar. The hit knocked my foot off the peg, but the bike reacted like Rocky..."Is that the best you got!" And it didn't even flinch. After a minute I looked down and saw that the rubber floorboard pad was gone. I didn't go back to look. When I got home, I saw the bar AND the bolt attaching it to the frame was bent so far back that the floorboard was resting on the highway bar. I'm alive and kicking. I credit the bike to a large degree.
