Long Beach Motorcycle Show

No, I didn't go but my brother went as "press" to see the re-introduction of the Indian brand. Same-o same-o according to him. Being marketed as the "classic" brand or some such. Limited run. but he did say that to get the same quality in a HD, you'd spent the same money that the Indian costs. BUT.... after the limited run there's going to be a "redesigned" indian out there. No pictures or nothing, just a sound booth where you could listen to the sound of the engine.

However..... he did say that there was a CB1100 on display and he really liked that bike.

He was kinda ticked off that Guzzi didn't show up.

All in all if he wasn't "press" he wouldn't have spent nearly as much time as he did at the show.

What your brother saw was the 2013 model year Polaris-built, Stellican designed Indians with a couple of new bells & whistles.

The rumor is that the 2014 model year Polaris-designed and built Indians are going to be unveiled at Daytona Bike Week in March. But 2014 machines usually arrive around July.

The New York Motorcycle Show usually has some nice new machines. It's just over a month away...
