Lookwood said the prime market for the new Indian models is anyone that wants an alternative to the Harley-Davidson. He expects the bulk of the customers will be middle-aged, which he describes as riders from their mid 40s to mid 60s.
Or maybe it was a picture that kick-started their fascination with the motorcycle.
The company began selling its newly designed motorcycles last August, with a new engine, and Lookwood said the patented slogan really fits: "Once an icon, always an icon."
He admitted the Indians are a major investment. The base models of the Indian Chief Classic, the Chief Vintage and the Chieftain range from $19,000 to $23,000 before upgrades and add-ons like wind protection, heated seat, audio and storage.
"Option for option, it compares favorably," he said.
