Polaris India introduced the Indian Motorcycle in India early this year. Indian Motorcycle is an iconic brand that gained immense popularity across world geography. In April 2011, Polaris Industries acquired Indian Motorcycle and in July 2013, it unveiled the all-new range of Indian motorcycles.
Since the April 2011 acquisition of Indian Motorcycle by Polaris Industries, the company has made an unprecedented commitment of time, resources and passion into the design of the all-new power plant. From the outset, the goal was to capture the iconic design and styling aspects of the 113-year old brand’s most historic model and fuse that heritage with state-of-the-art technology and progressive design elements. The new design reflects an unparalleled investment into researching the complete history of Indian Motorcycle power train development.
