just when Harley-Davidson announces partnership with Hero MotoCorpIndian Motorcycle has also revealed its big game plan for India by unveiling its Euro 5/BS6 compliant 2021 lineup in the country. The company has updated all existing models in the Indian Scout, Chief, Chieftain, FTR 1200, Challenger, Roadmaster and Springfield lineup.
Along with cleaner powertrains on all models, the Scout range comes in new colors. The all-new Scout Bobber Twenty is essentially a more authentic version of the standard Bobber. It comes with taller handlebars, 16-inch spoked wheels and a floating rider seat. The powertrain is the same 1133cc liquid-cooled V-twin as the regular Bobber, producing 100hp and 97Nm. Even the underpinnings have remained unchanged: telescopic front fork, twin rear shocks and 298mm discs at both ends with Dual-channel ABS as standard.
Busy geeks will be happy to know that the creme de la creme of two-wheeled cruisers, the Roadmaster range, comes with Apple CarPlay as standard. The new Roadmaster Limited and the already existing Roadmaster Dark Horse now also come with standard Clima Command Rogue seats that have both heating and cooling functions to keep your butt happy while munching on the miles. The Roadmaster Limited gets a slightly slimmer front fender, with a larger 19-inch front wheel, instead of the standard model’s 17-inch. It also rolls on premium machined alloy wheels and comes with handy remote-locking saddlebags.
The new Indian Vintage Darkhorse is basically the regular Vintage, but in a more understated, blacked-out avatar. It gets a matte black headlight cowl minus the large windshield, a solo seat, blacked-out body panels and fenders, and a set of all-black waterproof soft saddlebags. Indian says the launch and reservations for the new 2021 range will take place very soon. So which of these bikes do you like? Let us know in the comments below.
