Iconic brand Indian Motorcycles has launched three stunning bikes from its stables ranging from 26.5 lakh to 33 lakh

Indian Motorcycles is an iconic brand, dating back to 1901. The company seized operations in 1953 but was revived time and again but to no avail.

In 2011, Polaris Industries bought Indian Motorcycles and since then, the company has found its flavour.

Polaris has launched Indian Motorcycles in India, offering three bikes -- Indian Chief Classic, Indian Chief Vintage and Indian Chieftain.
