Indian Announces Two-Tone Paint Schemes For 2015 Lineup
Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, announced today in a sneak preview of its model year 2015 lineup that the new model year would also bring a return of the classic two-tone paint scheme the early Indians were known for. The much anticipated vintage paint palettes were on-display over the weekend for fans of classic motorcycles at Vintage Motorcycle Days 2014 in Lexington, Ohio.
The iconic two-tone schemes will build on the overwhelmingly positive response to the current 2014 Chief range, known for its hi-torque Thunder Stroke 111 motor and precise handling, thanks to Indian Motorcycle’s sand-cast aluminum frame technology. The new two-tone line-up showcases the full potential of combining the Chief’s American motorcycle heritage with 21st Century technology.
More details and information on all 2015 models, including features and pricing will be announced on August 2, and the cool new two-tone Chief Classic, Chief Vintage and Chieftain will also be on-display and ready for demo rides during the upcoming Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, which runs August 2 – 9 in Sturgis, South Dakota.
Featured Two-Tone Colours for 2015 are:
Indian Motorcycle Red and Thunder Black: Indian Chief Classic, Indian Chief Vintage and Indian Chieftain
Indian Motorcycle Red and Ivory Cream: Indian Chief Vintage and Indian Chieftain
Willow Green and Ivory Cream: Indian Chief Vintage
Springfield Blue and Ivory Cream: Indian Chieftain
Sturgis attendees can check out the full model year 2015 line-up in all its glory at the Indian Motorcycle Display on 3rd & Lazelle Street or at the Indian Motorcycle at the Crossroads at Sturgis Buffalo Chip from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily. Visit the Indian Motorcycle Sturgis event page for updates.
European consumers will have to wait just a little longer to see the two-tone paint for themselves, which Indian Motorcycle will preview at European Bike Week, held annually at Faaker See, Austria, between 2-7 September.
