Indian reveal 2018 range
Indian Motorcycles have revealed their full line-up of 2018 bikes, including three new models in the Scout Bobber, Roadmaster Elite and Springfield Dark Horse, to bring the total number of models up to 15.
The new Scout Bobber, which Indian revealed earlier this year, heads the 2018 model range and will be in dealers before the end of 2017.
The standard Indian Scout gets a few updates for 2018, most noticeably the inclusion of a pillion seat and foot pegs as standard. The telescopic forks will be replaced by cartridge forks and two new colourschemes will be available; Metallic Jade and Willow Green/Ivory Cream.
The smaller Scout Sixty will stay the same for 2018, but gains two new colour schemes; Polished Bronze and Thunder Black/Titanium Metallic.

The second new model for 2018 is the Springfield Dark Horse, which is essentially a standard Springfield with a few styling changes. The most obvious of those changes is the matte black paint with gloss details, and a smaller front mudguard to show-off the front wheel. The standard Springfield will be available in Metallic Jade over Thunder Black with Silver pinstripe for 2018.
The third new Indian model is the Roadmaster Elite, which will only be produced in a limited run. The Elite features a hand-painted cobalt blue and black paintscheme and 23K gold leaf badging on the tank. Indian's Ride Command system will come as standard on the Roadmaster Elite, along with a 300-watt audio system.
Reid Wilson, Marketing Director for Indian Motorcycle adds: “The Roadmaster Elite and Springfield Dark Horse are two fantastic motorcycles, with two different attitudes. The Roadmaster Elite packs all the bells and whistles perfect for riders looking for the best of the best, while the Dark Horse brings blacked-out style to the Springfield line. Beyond these two offerings, we have elevated each and every model – listening to our consumers to bring new features and colours they have asked for.”
