Noah Webster and company can add a new definition to the word overachiever to their lexicon. And the definition is exactly three words long: Indian Motorcycle Company. Consider that less than three years after mother ship Polaris Industries purchased the left-for-dead carcass of a company in early 2011, the first three Indian preproduction prototypes (Chief Classic, Vintage, and Chieftain) appeared in the metal at the 2013 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. By October of that same year, the first production models were on dealer showrooms, waiting to be sold. Less than a year later, the Roadmaster (see AIM issue #315) appeared. Overachieving, indeed.
But then the overachieving got kooky, because to kickstart the week-long Sturgis rally for 2014, Indian unveiled the all-new-for-2015 Scout at what was certainly one of the wildest new-model launches in memory.
