New features include anti-lock brakes on every color for superior stopping power and a USB charging port on Indian Scout and Indian Scout Bobber for staying charged on the go.
Be vigilant and careful. I know by experience. I was lucky enough to walk away from an accident at an early age when first starting out on 2 wheels as a teenager. I spent a week in the hospital, and was fortunate to be able to ride again.
I've been riding for over 40 years. I make a great effort to stay focused and always look ahead and over the hill, and always watch out for the other drivers. It's not if happens, it's when it happens.
A new body style and a 19" front wheel plus amenities like the industry-leading Ride Command® touchscreen display and a premium 100-watt audio system. And now with three selectable Ride Modes and Rear Cylinder Deactivation for customizable performance and enhanced comfort. And at the heart of it all, the roaring Thunder Stroke® 111 V-Twin engine.
Each head has just two valves, and their stems are parallel. Each intake port approaches its intake valve on a tangent, causing vigorous charge swirl in the cylinder that generates combustion-accelerating turbulence. Fast combustion is efficient, losing minimum heat. The two valves are slightly tilted as in classic American V-Eight “wedge” combustion chambers. This design is said to be inspired by that of the Corvette LS7 engine. Because of the long stroke, the combustion chamber has the openness to retain turbulence throughout combustion. There is a small squish shelf on the pushrod side.
Separate cylinder construction is employed, and cylinder bores are hard-plated with a Nikasil-like coating. This durable thin plating eliminates the insulating effect and weight of a traditional iron liner. The result is a cooler-running engine, which means better piston durability.
