  • Indian 4 coming?

    I was thinking that given Indians updated big bike engine and now a totally new Scout could a new inline 4 motor be next. That was top of the line engine for them in their heyday. If done right, and they seem to be doing that, it could be a really cool bike. The old ones sound amazing. Just a beer induced thought.

    I know a couple guys that have tooling for new cases and are machining "new Indian fours" with main bearings instead of babbet. The old cases just can't be welded much more. None of this has anything to do with Indian the company, just a couple rich enthusiast collectors. You never know what might just show up out there.

      I heard about the new cases and the bearings somehow. Glad they are doing that. Those inline motors were real neat. Triumph has that huge inline triple which does nothing for me. Those old triumph triples sounded great, but getting back to the inline Indian - I think in a couple of years we will see one as the new Indian seems to value thier past.

        How cool would it be if they would build a production replica of a 1920-style Indian?

            If they do an Indian Four, I hope the design team that did the new Scout, does the same type of engineering magic on this old Indian.

                    I bet there's a bunch of Victory owners who are kicking themselves now that these great Indians are coming out.

                      Maybe a few, but I think that Polaris is targeting a little different market with the Indian than they are with Victory.
