    Great news for Indian % Europeans. I learned while traveling in Switzerland that Indian is a bigger legend in europe than in the US. Like Harley.

    Congratulations to Paul and crew. Exciting times indeed for all of us lay ahead.

    I am very proud of Paul for his considerable efforts to start the first Indian Dealership in Europe in the modern era, and also Indian Motorcycle, for taking the time to find the right group to lead the worldwide expansion of this proud brand.

    Good times are coming for those with the vision and willingness to do the heavy lifting at this stage of the re-birth of an icon.

    does anyone know if they have sold any? in the US?
    They need to bring the price down about $10,000-$19.500 list price would get this new Indian on the road-its too pricey-not too pricey for 2005 but way too pricey for 2009
    and come out with a $10,000 entry level bike

    Buy American
    Support GM and Ford and Mopar

    The new Indian Dealers are selling Indians for sure…while I wouldn’t say sales are “brisk” per se I would say sales are “steady” especially considering this horrible economy that hasn’t seen the worst yet.
    Here’s to you, Indian…You’re new bikes are beautiful…wish I could afford one!

    Fantastic news!!
    II have ridden harley’s for years and love them but I have always wanted an Indian – so much so that I have customized a Kawasaki drifter to suit and yet I know it’s not the genuine article. Does anyone have details of the list price for the bikes and are they heading in the direction of the UK in the very near future?

    I wish Indian US and it’s European dealers all the very best and I do hope we see Indian Motorcycle Chapters emerging across Europe in strength – they are iconic and should be/ need to be here to stay!! WELL DONE….

    Hi folks,
    being a big fan of those bikes,i saw them first time in Gilroy,CA…..WOW !
    The factory was nice and several showrooms have fulfilled with everything.And the..BANG.Too many models, concepts and so.

    I hope, the new management will not produce too much in short time.
    The price for a starting model here in Europe is with EURO !!! to much.

    Well,lets see what we have in future.
    Best Luck from Berlin-Germany !
