Challenging a Challenger

The new Indian Challenger is not everyone’s cup of tea but you have to hand it to Polaris-Indian that’s really only produced for six years from the ground up built 3 engine platforms and kickstarted the brand back after a few splutters since 1953. Seriously though the Californian Motorcycle Co started in 1999 and brought the name back after Clymer’s attempts in 1968-72 Indian’s went through the Gilroy, Kings Mountain, and Polaris -Victory periods before we have ended up to the contemporary versions, that’s 21 years we have had Indians on the market in some form or other and bit like that other brand Hinkley Triumph starting in 1991 ready to turn 30 next year.
