Historic picture? The Polaris team working on Indian Motorcycles just tweeted the picture of the 1st Indian bike they ever assembled at the The Spirit Lake, Iowa facility. The first Polaris-Indian will be subjected to extensive testing and evaluation to ensure the quality meets all Polaris quality standards.
The 2012 Indian Chief will not be available until December or January, will keep the same price structure, and is the transition model to the brand new Polaris/Indian motorcycle to be unveiled summer of 2012. For the Indian Chief featured here, expect minor improvements or fixes and only three 2-tone paint combos plus solid black and solid red. The industry can’t wait see what Polaris-Indian is going to offer as 2013 models.
