Indian Motorcycle has just unveiled a new tourer that’s kitted out with a liquid-cooled PowerPlus engine, a full-suite of technology, a chassis-mounted fairing and loads of touring goodies.
Called the Pursuit, it builds on the success of the Challenger – and uses the same 1768cc, liquid-cooled V-twin motor kicks out 90kW (121 hp) and 178Nm (131 ft-lbs) of torque. There’s also the capability to customise the bike’s throttle response to suit their riding style (or the road conditions) by selecting from three ride modes (Rain, Standard and Sport).

It’s big on comfort too. There’s a chassis-mounted fairing, an adjustable windscreen and some vented lower fairings – which all work to provide protection without compromising handling. There’s integrated lights in the lower fairings, heated grips, and there’s even a new Heated Touring Comfort seat too. And for lugging stuff about, there’s a trunk and saddlebags which offer a massive 133 litres of storage between them. There’s also a glove-friendly, seven-inch touchscreen display which offers Apple CarPlay compatibility, along with GPS turn-by-turn navigation (and a few other clever features).
The Pursuit comes equipped with an all-new electronically adjustable rear suspension setup from Fox, some race-spec radially-mounted Brembo brakes, Metzeler Cruisetec – and it also gets Indian’s Smart Lean Technology, which uses a Bosch IMU to offer cornering control using the to the dynamic traction control and ABS systems.
As you’d expect, there’s also a massive range of addition kit available for the Indian Pursuit. There’s two kit options for the Hard Lower Fairings, a set of Mitered Mid-Rise Handlebars, LED lighting options and various soft luggage pieces. There’s space for additional storage compartments or an Indian Motorcycle PowerBand Audio Kit.
