Indian Motorcycle is America’s oldest motorcycle brand–although not, it should be pointed out, the oldest continuous manufacturer, due to an unfortunate number of bankruptcies. The venerable brand keeps being revived though, and in its current incarnation, the company has unveiled its 2010 lineup of Indian Chief motorcycles at Sturgis. Top among them is Indian’s version of a dark custom motorcycle, the Dark Chief.
A special model for the 2010 year is the Indian Chief bomber, a motorcycle whose styling is based on World War II aircraft. According to the company:
Inspired by WWII aircraft, the Bomber is a limited edition Chief model and will only be available for one year. The Bomber is available in Military Green and Silver Smoke finishes. The pin-up girl tank artwork is inspired by the Bomber nose art of that era. The leather used on the seat and saddlebags are reminiscent of the feel and color of an old bomber jacket.
If you want an Indian, be prepared to shell out some serious cash. The price for an entry-level model starts at $25,999, and goes up from there.
