The Indians are Coming


Mike Smith Indian is announcing that the dealership will be the second store (after the factory shop in North Carolina) in the U.S. to receive a shipment of new Indian motorcycles.


The shop says the shipment of 17 new Indians will coincide with the dealership’s grand opening at the former Hoopers Outdoor Center in Paducah, Ky. The resurrected OEM announced this summer that Mike’s would be one of Indian’s inaugural dealerships. Read about it here. Indian first discussed its dealership plans with Dealernews back in January. Here’s what dealer development director Gary Busch had to say about those plans.

It’s now been a few months since Indian honcho Stephen Julius first rolled out the production bikes to the crowds at Sturgis. Since then, I’ve yet to read any riding reviews of the new Chiefs. If anybody has a link or a story they’d care to share about the new bikes pass it along. I’ve heard about the plans to build a superior bike, the launching of a whole line of Indian apparel, the development of a new Power Plus 105 cu. in. motor, the construction of iconic dealerships and the resurrection of a legendary brand. What I haven’t heard is how the bikes ride.
