While Harley-Davidson may have signed an agreement with Hero MotoCorp to continue its operations in India, another iconic American motorcycle manufacturer is waiting to take the lead as far as the premium cruiser motorcycle segment in India is concerned. It is of course, Indian Motorcycle! The company announced its 2021 model line-up which includes all variants of the Scout, Chief, Chieftain, FTR 1200, Challenger, Roadmaster and Springfield. Indian also confirms that it will launch three brand-new models which are the Scout Bobber Twenty, Roadmaster Limited and the Chief Vintage Dark Horse. The Challenger of course, will be a new model for Indian Motorcycle in India.

Although Indian has not given a concrete timeline for the launch of these motorcycles, we believe that the company will start retailing BS6 compliant models before 2020 comes to a close. Sharing the plans, Lalit Sharma, Country Manager, Polaris India Pvt. Ltd said, "We are excited to bring the new & improved lineup of Indian Motorcycle in India. Our 2021 line-up will incorporate several new additions and upgraded features which will definitely add the charm and get the attraction of the riders. We're extremely motivated by the significant brand momentum that we have experienced even during the pandemic and looking forward to good growth in 2021."
Indian Motorcycle also said that it will open up the order books for the new model line-up shortly, which means one could expect bookings to begin during Diwali or just after. Most Indian motorcycles get updates such as Apple CarPlay integration for 2021 along with BS6 compliance as well.
