Indian announce 2016 model range

Published: 04 September 2015

Indian Motorcycles have stormed back into the market as a serious player under Polaris ownership, and their recent tide of new models sees a year of consolidation in 2016, with just tweaks and colour changes to keep the momentum going – while all models in the range can be now equipped with EU certified accessory Remus pipes for an throatier soundtrack.

Here’s a look at the MY16 line-up.

2016 Scout
With its compact design, low 643mm seat height and ABS as standard, the Indian Scout boasts a liquid-cooled 1133cc V-twin engine, with 100b on tap. For 2016 the Scout comes in five colours.

Wildfire Red – NEW
Thunder Black
Thunder Black Smoke
Silver Smoke
Indian Motorcycle Red

2016 Chief Dark Horse | Chief Classic | Chief Vintage | Chieftain
The Indian Chief family has impeccable styling and sophisticated performance. The proven Thunder Stroke 111 engine powers them all (an air-cooled version is on the Chief Dark Horse, Classic and Vintage), but each model has its own character and style.

Riders can opt for the Chief Classic (cruiser) with its classic looks, much cleaner now following some re-work carried out for 2016: solo vinyl seat, black switches, single headlight and cast aluminium wheels. It now also only comes in one colour; Pearl White.

Next there’s the Chief Vintage (bagger) with its beautiful fringed leather saddlebags and seats, and quick-release windshield (all as standard) making this the option for those who plan to ride on extended road trips. Four colours are available with one of these being new for 2016.

The Chieftain (bagger) has a large fairing with a power-adjustable windscreen (to offer superb cruising comfort), genuine leather seats and hard saddlebags with remote central-locking. It’s available in four colours in 2016 with two of these new.

Finally there’s the Chief Dark Horse, which is matte black from end-to-end with only a few flashes of chrome (accessories are available to fully blacken it out). 

The colour options for all of the Chief models this year are:
