June 12, 2008 by · Comments Off on Indian Motorcycle unveils 2009 Chief 

Indian MotorcycleWith cruiser sales in the toilet and the U.S. economy going from bad to worse, 2008 might not be the best time to re-launch the legendary Indian brand, but that’s exactly what’s happening. Will the third try be a charm? Only time will tell if the new Indian Motorcycle company, in Kings Mountain, N.C., will be able to succeed where the original Indian (1901-53) and its follow-up California Motorcycle Company (1999-2003) failed.
