Indian Motorcycle released two new touring motorcycles today, the Indian Pursuit Dark Horse and Indian Pursuit Limited. Featuring the liquid-cooled PowerPlus engine, ride-enhancing technology, a chassis-mounted fairing, touring amenities and model-specific accessories, the 2022 Indian Pursuit joins the American touring motorcycle category.
With the key focus being comfort and performance, the Indian Pursuit was engineered for riders who value the journey as much as the destination. Available in two models with two trim levels for each, the Pursuit Dark Horse and Pursuit Limited, each is available with a premium package that offers advanced ride-enhancing technology and additional comfort features.
“Touring bikes are one of the ultimate expressions of freedom – enabling unforgettable experiences through longer escapes and epic adventures on the open road,” said Mike Dougherty, President for Indian Motorcycle. “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.”
The Indian Motorcycle 108 cubic-inch, liquid-cooled PowerPlus V-twin comes standard on both Pursuit models and delivers 122 horsepower and 128 ft-lbs of torque. Each 2022 Pursuit model features a refined PowerPlus calibration, which improves low-speed drivability and further enhances the rider experience.
Each Indian Pursuit model is designed for optimal comfort for long bouts in the saddle. The adjustable windscreen and vented lower fairings provide superior protection from the elements, and a heightened level of flexibility to adjust to varying weather and temperature conditions. Heated grips keep riders’ hands warm in cold weather, while the Pursuit’s new Touring Comfort seat delivers unprecedented comfort. In addition, a premium cargo trunk and spacious saddlebags combine for more than 35 gallons of power-locking storage – allowing riders to pack everything they need for longer rides.
Features for each Pursuit model are capped off with an industry-leading seven-inch touchscreen display powered by Ride Command. With Ride Command+, the touchscreen display offers Apple CarPlay, GPS with turn-by-turn navigation and a free year of Ride Command+ connected features, including live traffic and weather overlays, and an all-new vehicle locator feature. The new vehicle locator feature adds a sense of security, as riders can visit the Indian Motorcycle Ride Command mobile app or website to track their bike’s last location where it was powered on.
Riders looking to take their journey to the next level can do so with the Indian Pursuit Dark Horse with Premium Package and Indian Pursuit Limited with Premium Package. Each model features an all-new electronically adjustable rear suspension preload from Fox, which allows riders to adjust their preload for optimal comfort and handling under varying conditions. Whether riding solo, two-up or carrying more cargo – the electronically adjustable rear suspension preload is managed from the convenience of the bike’s infotainment system. The new electronic preload is standard on Premium package models and is also available as an accessory upgrade for standard Indian Pursuit Dark Horse, Indian Pursuit Limited, and all Indian Challenger models.
In addition, both premium models offer intuitive Smart Lean Technology, which keeps riders confidently grounded by utilizing a Bosch IMU to add cornering control to the dynamic traction control and ABS. The two premium offerings also feature integrated driving lights within the lower fairings and a premium styled heated seat for improved comfort during cold weather.
To add power and custom-inspired styling to Indian Pursuit models, Indian Motorcycle offers several performance accessories. The PowerPlus Air Cleaner complements the bike with a deeper intake sound, while the PowerPlus Stage 2 Performance Cams deliver 10% more horsepower and 3% more torque.
The Pursuit Limited Premium package features an all-new electronically adjustable rear suspension preload from Fox and intuitive Smart Lean Technology, which keeps riders confidently grounded by utilizing a Bosch IMU to add cornering control to the dynamic traction control and ABS.
Riders can further personalize their Pursuit with two kit options for their Hard Lower Fairings, a set of Mitered Mid-Rise Handlebars, LED lighting options, and various soft luggage pieces. To further utilize the space within the Pursuit’s Hard Lower Fairings, riders can add additional storage compartments or integrate an Indian Motorcycle PowerBand Audio Kit. When fully upgraded with PowerBand Audio, riders will experience surround sound with four points, including front fairing, lower fairings, saddlebags and cargo trunk. The Indian Motorcycle Mitered Mid-Rise Handlebars not only add a stylish custom look, but also place the upper controls in a comfortable, elevated position. Riders can also add LED lighting for enhanced visibility, including an Adaptive LED Headlight option that automatically optimizes where light shines based on the bike’s lean angle. And finally, riders can choose from four versatile pieces in the Spirit Lake Luggage Collection for protected, organized gear that’s easy to attach and detach from the bike.
Pricing for the Indian Pursuit Dark Horse begins at $30,999 and $33,999 for the Pursuit Dark Horse with Premium Package. Paint options for both trims include, Black Smoke, Spirit Blue, Silver Quartz Smoke, and Ruby Metallic over Black Metallic.
