Indian Motorcycle to Reveal 2015 Lineup at Sturgis
Indian Motorcycle made a splash at last year’s Sturgis Rally, making its rebirth under Polaris Industries and revealing its Thunderstroke 111 V-Twin powered 2014 lineup. It should come as no surprise then that Indian announced it will reveal its all-new 2015 model lineup at this year’s Sturgis Rally.
Although Indian makes the “all-new” claim, we expect a similar lineup to what’s currently available (Chief, Chief Vintage and Chieftain), perhaps with a revision or a new spin on an existing model. Of course, Polaris has been on a roll of late and may have a surprise or two in store.
The 2015 Indian lineup will be at the official display on 3rd and Lazelle St. in downtown Sturgis, Aug. 2 to 9. Visitors can also enter a contest to win a new 2015 model.
Demo rides on the 2015 line will be held through the week at the Indian Motorcycle Demo Experience on I-90 at Exit 30.
Indian will also host a party on Sunday, Aug. 3 at Buffalo Chip, with Lynyrd Skynyrd headlining the show alongside the 2015 lineup.
Other Indian activities include the American Motor Drome Company’s live “Wall of Death” daredevil show at the downtown display and a special event for current Indian owners at the newly-opened Indian Motorcycle Sturgis dealership on Aug. 3.
