Indian Motorcycle debuts what is claimed to be the pinnacle in the v-twin touring bike class, the 2022 liquid-cooled Indian Pursuit.
I love how Indian Motorcycle continues to relentlessly produce quality, performance-focused and performance-driven motorcycles without skimping out on the comfort. Touring bikes have notoriously split the difference when it comes to performance and comfort… Traditionally, you could receive one but not the other. At least not enough to make a difference. But hey, big bikes need love too. And to my point, the new Indian Motorcycle Pursuit checks a lot of boxes in both departments and is aiming to leave a mile-wide grin underneath your helmet.
The powerplant of the new Indian Pursuit is Indian’s PowerPlus 108 cubic-inch, liquid-cooled V-twin engine which pushes out 122 horses and 128 foot-pounds of torque. This engine has a feature called PowerPlus calibration which is engineered to make low-speed drivability more manageable.
Putting the “T” in touring, the new bike employs many features that make it a suitable road horse. The list includes an adjustable windscreen, vented lower fairings, heated grips, not to mention a total of 35 gallons of storage thanks to the power-locking cargo trunk and accomodating saddlebags. The saddle of the Pursuit is the new Indian Touring Comfort Seat.
To further enhance the ride and overall experience, the Indian Pursuit is spotlighted by its seven-inch touchscreen display that is powered by the RIDE COMMAND+ infotainment system. A bonus feature is the vehicle locator asset used in tandem with the Indian Motorcycle RIDE COMMAND mobile app or via the web to track the last location where the bike was powered on.
The Indian Pursuit comes standard with Intuitive Smart Lean Technology, controlled by a Bosch IMU to add cornering control to the dynamic traction control and ABS.
You can upgrade your ride via the Pursuit Dark Horse with Premium Package and Pursuit Limited with Premium Package that includes electronically adjustable rear suspension preload from Fox. This suspension upgrade allows you to adjust your preload from the convenience of the bike’s infotainment system.
The Pursuit is presented in two versions, the Pursuit Dark Horse and Pursuit Limited. Indian offers a selection of performance and cosmetic upgrade options so you can make the Pursuit more of your own.
Pricing for the Indian Pursuit Dark Horse, available in Black Smoke, Spirit Blue, Silver Quartz Smoke, and Ruby Metallic over Black Metallic, begins at $30,999 and $33,999 for the Pursuit Dark Horse with Premium Package.
The Indian Pursuit Limited starts at $29,999, while the Pursuit Limited with Premium Package begins at $32,999, available in Black Metallic, Deepwater Metallic and Maroon Metallic over Crimson Metallic.
“Touring bikes are one of the ultimate expressions of freedom – enabling unforgettable experiences through longer escapes and epic adventures on the open road. With Pursuit, we’ve expanded on the unparalleled sophistication of the PowerPlus motor to deliver a class-leading, fully-loaded touring machine that combines top-tier performance with unparalleled comfort and advanced tech features, delivering an American V-twin touring experience unlike any other.” – Mike Dougherty, President for Indian Motorcycle.
