I wonder if they could build a modern air-cooled engine like that today. I wonder if they had trouble with the two interior cylinders on that motor back in the day and I wonder if modern direct injection would help with cooling and prevent premature detonation on a motor like that.
It's Tuesday, August 6th, and on the Indian Motorcycle Website, still no Streaming Video or report of any kind whatsoever on the results of the Debut/Unveiling at Sturgis. What gives... ?
Something tells me that if the introduction had been a Major Success (how would you measure it?), they would have published it, and revealed the latest news. So far, all you can find on the interweb are generic announcements or extremely vague or bogus and biased reports.
A.) Are they taking sales orders at Sturgis?
B.) Are dealers signing up at Sturgis?
How would we know if the "Debut" was successful, other than a crowd screaming and roaring... who would do the exact same if a fat female pulls up her shirt!
I wish them success, but their Ad campaign has had a lot of mud-slinging and childish bashing Vs. "on it's own merit" style promotion.
2014 Sales will tell the true story... and Dealership networks/customer satisfaction. It's a long, long row to hoe, and they haven't got the tractor out in the field yet!
Best o' Luck!
I would love to see this model return once again. Thanks for the picture of this vintage classic beautiful machine.
If Indian does an inline 4, they'll probably have to deal w/these people first--
