With the latest PowerPlus motor, a frame-mounted touring fairing with power screen, massive infotainment-equipped dash and an IMU-equipped configuration to make th eride safer, Indian’s new Pursuit looks like it will challenge the biggest and best from Harley-Davidson.

The traditional style hides the water cooling, the USD forks, radial Brembo calipers and big disc look like they could be off a sportsbike, a giant TFT display combines with analog speedo and tacho, there’s all the electronics your could hope for, it’s built for two and will take heaps of luggage.

Add in a Fox rear shock with electronically adjustable preload and you’d got a premium tourer.
