From an Isle of Man TT winner to fire-breathing board-track racers, the wartime Scout and Chief, and even an elegant four-cylinder model, Indian owned an important slice of motorcycling for 50 years before finally fading away. After several attempts to reinvent the brand, this time Polaris Industries, builder of Victory Motorcycles, is doing it properly. Built in aptly named Spirit Lake, Iowa, rather than the original Springfield, Massachusetts, three new Indian motorcycle models debut for 2014, including the Chief Classic, Chief Vintage and Chieftain. All share an advanced cast-aluminum frame, a 111-cu. in. Thunder Stroke V-twin engine delivering peak torque at a lazy 3000 rpm, and classic styling touches such as deeply skirted fenders. Unique Chief Vintage features include a windshield, leather saddlebags and seats, while the Chieftain has a touring fairing, hard bags and alloy wheels.
