Indian Motorcycle Co. on Tuesday released its 2017 bike lineup that carries over the 2016 model-year bikes and features a new touch-screen audio and information system.
Indian, a subsidiary of Medina, Minn.-based Polaris Industries, is one of the biggest rivals of Milwaukee-based Harley-Davidson Inc.
Indian’s new product announcement comes as Harley is scheduled on Thursday to release its earnings for the second quarter.
Indian says its 2017 lineup includes the recently released Scout Sixty, Indian Springfield and Chief Dark Horse models with new color choices.
A new touch-screen information and entertainment system has a 7-inch display with turn-by-turn navigation, Bluetooth audio and USB flash drive support. The Chieftain bikes come with 100 watts of audio, while the more expensive Indian Roadmaster has 200 watts.
