Indian get A2 licence-friendly

1 of 7

Indian have announced updates to the 2016 models that will be carried into next year. 

One of the most significant changes comes from the Scout Sixty, which will now have the option to come with a restrictor kit to make it available to those on an A2 licence. Customers can have the kit fitted before delivery.

Following this are also subtle updates that affect both the Scout Sixty and the Scout and include recalibrated rear shocks, a tidy up on the wiring harness to improve aesthetics and increased steering lock for tighter u-turns. The rear header exhaust pipe has also been tweaked for better legroom.


Another significant update comes to with the addition of the Ride Command system. Featuring a 7in touchscreen, Indian say it’ll be the biggest fitted to any motorcycle so far. It will come as standard on the Roadmaster and Chieftain models and links up to the bike’s audio system and can be paired to the rider’s phone or Bluetooth headset too. Further features include vehicle status information, such as service and bike stats, ride and trip data and also navigation.

The remaining bikes in the line up are largely unchanged, with new colour schemes for most models. There are new colours available for the Scout, Chief Classic and Chief Vintage. The Springfield too also gets two new colourschemes with a two-tone scheme available for the first time on the bike. 

The Chief Dark Horse and Chieftain Dark Horse will remain the same for 2017.
