I'll give it a couple of years and see what Polaris does with the brand. If they can get the prices under $25K and make something a man can RIDE, I'm in.
Looks like a road King with an Arlen Ness fender.

Park a road king next to one of the new Indians and have a look at the fit and finish along with the overall dimensions and I think you will see that they are very different machines. The Indian is a nicer bike, it should be for what it costs. It is also bigger, tall riders would appreciate the larger bike.

I seriously doubt the fit and finish is worth $16K+. Has six inches on length and 5" on wheelbase. It is a pretty bike that i cant argue. The traditional Indian fender styling does look nice.

I agree, it's overpriced. $26,000 would be a more acceptable pricepoint, but it's not my company and I have no idea what it takes to manufacture motorcycles like these.

I'm new to the forum and I love my 02 Spirit. Yes, 'purists' and gear snobs will say that it's not really an Indian, blah, blah, blah. This thing's dyno'd at 100+ hp and makes my 94 FatBoy pale in comparison. Don't get me wrong, loved the FatBoy, too.
I expect to visit the shop occasionally (and do) - the bike's 10 years old! Bottom line: Great bike to ride; people like it; says "Indian" on the registration, so as far as I'm concerned, it's an Indian.
All my buddies ride Harleys. Not one of them has ever been poopy-pants about me riding this bike.
Parts aren't an issue. And why wouldn't you want an S&S? It's tough as nails and puts out. The Indian primary cover is about twice as strong as an evo, so not every single part is an aftermarket harley piece.
