Colors and design: Indian models have a new lookDanilo Trovato
New colors, new lines, and new accessories. Indian Motorcycle announced its 2022 model year lineup today. All cruiser, bagger, and touring models feature updats in technology and new accessories. Plus, the new 2022 Indian Motorcycle lineup colors will not let you down: fresh colours will impress every biker everywhere around the globe. Mike Dougherty, President of Indian Motorcycle, addressed the brilliant work carried out by his team: “Rider feedback continues to be at the forefront of what drives refinements and enhancements for our model year offerings, and that is once again the case for 2022 with a host of new colours and accessories across the lineup. The introduction of the reimagined Indian Chief in 2021 rounded out a truly comprehensive lineup of cruisers, baggers, and touring models, and with the help of customer feedback, we aim to consistently enhance and improve the lineup with new technology and wider-ranging accessory options like these for 2022.”
Indian Thunderstroke and Powerplus
Indian Motorcycle baggers and touring models – each offering heritage-inspired design or blacked-out, modern style – are equipped with Thunderstroke and PowerPlus motors. Specifically:
air-cooled baggers and touring models, including Springfield, Chieftain and Roadmaster lineups, pack the Thunderstroke motor, whilst Challenger models deliver a class-leading 122 horsepower with the liquid-cooled PowerPlus engine. With high-displacement motors, Indian Motorcycle bagger and touring models were engineered to dominate the road. Loading capacity, wind protection, and comfortable ergonomics make these models the ultimate long-distance machines.
Colors like Quartz Gray on the Chieftain Dark Horse and the all-new Indy Red over Black Metallic on the Challenger Dark Horse add to each bike’s stand-out attitude that will turn heads at every stoplight. To accommodate additional storage needs on longer rides, Indian Motorcycle has released its Spirit Lake Luggage Collection, which includes a Rack Bag, Day Bag and Touring Bag. Each piece features a shoulder strap for convenient carrying off the bike and attaches securely to luggage racks, sissy bars, or the rear of the passenger backrest. Each piece is sold separately but designed as a cohesive collection.
In addition, bagger and touring riders can add personalized style and add visibility to other motorists with all-new rear LED saddlebag lights. Designed to seamlessly integrate with the standard lighting, these Pathfinder Auxiliary LED Saddlebag Lights do not require any drilling, but rather feature a convenient peel-and-stick adhesive for easy and quick install. New for 2022, Indian Challenger riders can add wind protection with the addition of Hard Lower Fairings. Designed specifically for Challenger models, the Hard Lower Fairings are compatible with all 2020-2022 model year offerings. Riders also have the option to add PowerBand Audio or additional storage compartments within the Hard Lower Fairings.
