Indian Motorcycle has opened eleven dealerships and selected its first international distributor in Paris, France, since retailing its first motorcycle earlier this year.
Production of the 2009 Indian Chief Standard, Deluxe, Roadmaster, and Vintage began last fall and delivery of the first models to Indian Motorcycle dealerships was in January. Since then, dealerships across the nation have scheduled grand opening celebrations and demo ride events.
