    Ones American made. Better design with superior construction. Priced fairly. Financing department that doesn’t fuck you on trade in or loan apr.

    The other is Harley.

    Sir, I think with the new 116 ci kit Indian it's better than a Harley and the road master of Indian motorcycle is better than this Harley most if it have the 116 kit in the engine.

    I love my Indian and love HD as well. I don’t like the limited DH with that ugly batwing fairing that’s in this video. That’s not what the fairings actually look like, this is a limited model. Wished he would’ve used the Classic with the LED lights running up the side of the fairing. I did love this video. Thank you for the comparison.

    Having ridden both, the indian is nowhere near the bike the road glide is. The Indian felt like it was going to rattle apart. Lots of gimmicky "tech", the dosplat is from 10 years ago. The bar controls are chintzy and absolutely gigantic. Stop trying to make indian happen.

I would go with the Indian . I'm sure you could bump the motor up one way or the other and what you needed . Each their own ??? AS LONG AS YOUR IN THE WIND !!!

    On my 2018 Roadmaster I got an exhaust leak. Pulled the trim off for the studs and they were very loose. Tightened up and all good.. Indian extras are very pricey too, if you do get one of these check out the aftermarket accessories. They're getting more popular and more is coming out. Save some money

    Traded my 2012 RoadKing in for the 2014 Indian Vintage. The Indian is simply a better bike in nearly every aspect. That new Indian will be the 40th motorcycle I have owned (including 3 Harley's) and 56 years of riding motorcycles. I have a picture of each one including my 1965 Bridgestone motorcycle, 1946 Indian, 1950 HD panhead, Yamaha XS 1100, several Moto Guzzi's (my personal favorites) and more.

    I bought a 17 SG and it was a rocket...till 4,000rpm and it went to sleep there. Rineharts, air cleaner and a Woods 222 cam and it's ALWAYS a rocket now. I put lowers, tall windshield and 300 watt amp with new speakers and it will be my last new bike. I've got a hopped up 05 Ultra and it doesn't hold a candle to the new bike. SUPER happy with the SG! My buddy bought a new Indian...it's nice....I'm afraid of getting parts for it if they go under again which I think they probably will. They've just never been a super stable company and Harley aint goin nowhere any time soon. Long as you got your knees in the breeze you're doing your brain good....but I'll stick with my Harley....last thing....some see the linked brakes as a good thing....we'll see how that pans out with road sand in the twisties....even THINK of locking that front tire in the left over winter sand and you're instantly going to the ground

    I have texted you before. I rode for more than 50 years. I bought my first bike, in 1964.
    It was a Suzuki 80. I don't know how many bikes I've had.
    The last time I texted you, I had a 2011 StreetBob. I bought it @ "Laidlaw's HD," in Irwindale, Ca.
    I crashed my StreetBob. I broke my hip. I don't ride anymore. (50+years)
    I REALLY wanted an Indian. I rode one @ "The Long Beach M/C Show," a few years ago.
    My "StreetBob" had a high center of gravity. It's sold & gone to Germany.
    I REALLY hate to Quit. I thought I'd ride for the rest of my life,
    I had a bunch of "Brit Bikes" before. I had 3 BMWs. I don't know how many Japanese bikes I've had.
    I'm a Grandpa. I'm 66. I'm BROKE.
    I REALLY hate to Quit !

    I like the chief dark horse with the 16 inch ape hangers. I also like hp and torque on a motorcycle. That being said knowing that the bike can do 160 mph is just something thats comforting to me. Not saying I'll always be going 160 but i do like to go open throttle on a bike everynow and then.

    Linked brakes suck and Harleys water cooled heads are needed because Harleys have a tendency to burn exhaust valves. Also the new M8 valve seats on many models are installed wrong at the factory and more then a few are leaking 25-35% on a leak down test! Harley has a long history of turning out engines that need more R&D before they decided to roll them out! It usually takes the factory 4-5 years to refine the engine after using their buyers as their own personal research and development Guinea pigs! I must put an emphasis on refine because Harley never perfects! Obvious design flaws and the need to keep their service department fat and happy have kept Harley from perfecting anything they make. Indian is finally turning out a good machine only after the name got a big bank roll from a large corporation! We all know the early 2000’s Indian sucked and was nothing more than a off the shelf bike built with the quality of bike in the box kit from custom Chrome! (Total shit). Indian however is a contender now and that scares the motor factory (HD) and that’s why they are spending themselves into closing plants just trying to compete. Indian is a much more reliable platform then HD. Indian knew to compete with HD they needed a very reliable machine to compete with a manufacturer that controlled more then70% of the street market.The forged crank and gear driven primary just to name a few. Harley better look out because every Indian dealership I’ve been to have whole parking lots of used HD’S that have been traded in.

    Awesome review. The Indian looks so much better when it comes to comfort. Indian as a company has avoided the silly mistakes that HD made for decades by listening to their customers instead of running on reputation and prestige. HD is in trouble due to their arrogance and massive failure to deliver bikes that people actually ride. Indian has an awesome lineup and has models for women riders something that HD grossly overlooked. Indian jumped on the fashion statement and made retro bikes that perform well but HD insisted on the 60 year old fashion and technology. Their solution now is electric bikes.....lol.....their CEO is completely loco.

    Great review Adam. Both are wonderful machines. I am currently trying to decide on which one to get. I a very torn. As it pertains to the HP on the cheiftain, I feel as though that is something that can be remedied. As with any bike. I did some research, and Indian can install the 116 big bore kit right from the factory. They people that have it, have said that it solves the HP issue. Also, along with that an air intake upgrade as well. I also have seen videos where cats have also put in Lloyd's performance cams in addition to the 116 kit and the intake. Some may not want to spend the money, but if you plan on having the bike for a long time and doing alot of long distance riding and HP is important to you, it is worth the money in my opinion. Once again great review. God bless.

    First, thank you for what you do for our service members. I currently serve! We appreciate you for doing all this for us combat veterans. Second, I have a question, well want your honest opinion. This past weekend I attended the motorcycle show in Long Beach, CA. I was able to test ride sever bikes. (chieftain darkhorse, Springfield dark horse, Harley street glide special and the road king special. so my question. I am so confused. I loved all the bikes I road and now am going back and forth to see which one I will end up getting. I want your opinion on the bikes I test road. I know you say ride the bikes and see what u like. Well I road them and I am still confused lol. I never liked the bikes with fairings, always loved the look of the road king and Springfield. But now that I have ridden the street glide and chieftain, wow the way it blocks the wind. well I hope you can help. thank you again from a Veteran that almost didn't make it back home!!! God bless and ride free!!!

    Will Indian ever offer a CVO model. The control covers being chromed plastic instead of metal. A cheap feel. Other motor options would be nice. There are tons of features that appeal to the millennials. Smart in Indians part. I see skinny jeans, man bun bikers in the future. That's marketing. To price point these equivalent to Harley means that Harley is in the driver seat when it comes to what the price of these indians will be. I guess smart for Polaris to do that. But ditch the cheapy chromed plastic all over the bike. And give it a premium feel other than just ride. Ide be willing to own one. Only one motor option isn't appealing to me. They offer a bolt on upgrade. But having other size options would be nice. Without wrenching on my new bike. Just my opinion. And I'm sure I'm not the only person wonder what's equivalent to the CVO .

    True bikers who breathe as bikers and live as bikers are the individuals who should be recognized as road warriors and asphalt heroes.
    The road is their stage; the scooter is their fine tuned instrument; the leather identifies their role; the patches speak of their lifestyle; and the roar of the pipes is their music.
    Hear I am, on the road again. Here I am, back on the stage...
    As the distant echo of a Seger lyric.
    Against the wind...against the wind...still runnin against the wind...
    To all my warrior brothers and sisters:
    You are loved. Keep ridin against the wind.
