Indian Motorcycle’s all-new Pursuit touring model is set to hit local showrooms this year, priced from $44,995 rideaway.

Two variants will be on offer, the Dark Horse ($44,995) and Limited ($45,495), both of which come standard with a spec-boosting ‘Premium Package’ in Australia.

The Indian Pursuit joins the Roadmaster in the American bikemaker’s Touring line-up, distinguished by a new chassis-mounted fairing with an adjustable windscreen, as well as a large top-box and panniers capable of swallowing 133-litres of gear.

Powering the bike is a familiar 1769cc (108ci) V-twin motor that generates 91kW (122hp) and 173.5Nm, however, the Indian Pursuit benefits from a new engine tune to refine low-speed rideability. This new tune, called PowerPlus, can also be retrofitted to existing Challenger models.

The Indian Pursuit also gets a new three-mode heated comfort seat to match the heated grips, and comes standard with a 7.0-inch touchscreen display, Fox electronic suspension, lean-angle sensitive traction control and ABS, and integrated driving lights.

For a modest boost to performance, the Indian Pursuit will be available with uprated cams to deliver a claimed 10 per cent more horsepower and 3 per cent more torque, as well as a unique intake system to give the motorcycle a deeper sound.

The Indian Pursuit is positioned to compete with the likes of the Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited ($43,995) and Road Glide ST ($44,495).
