All of the classic post-war American styling that people want from a big Indian is still there.

What didn't change was the high level of fit and finish, beautiful chrome and paint that sets American cruisers apart from their Japanese rivals.

At low speeds or while stuck in traffic, the rear-cylinder deactivation system will kick in and reduce the amount of heat that the bike puts off, aiding rider comfort.
