If you’re looking to get a ride in but your own bike is in the dry dock, or just want to try out the newest Indian—good news. You now have more options for getting on the road on a loaner bike.
Indian Motorcycles has launched 14 new rental affiliates throughout the U.S. and Canada. This expansion of the Indian rental network brings their total number of locations to 25. With these new affiliates, America’s First Motorcycle Company now has a presence in many of North America’s most popular riding destinations, such as Austin, Milwaukee, Nashville, San Diego, and Sturgis.
Indian has a range of the company’s current model year bikes available at each of its rental locations—including the oven-fresh 2022 Indian Chief (see our review in the Aug ‘21 issue) and the updated FTR lineup. The bike range will be updated every 12-18 months to feature the latest and greatest Indian has to offer.
To rent a bike, you’ll need a valid motorcycle license or endorsement. You’ll also need to be fully geared up with a helmet, long pants, and close-toed shoes. Indian offers loaner helmets in case you need one. The company also recommends renters to wear gloves, a riding jacket, and a high-visibility vest. Damage coverage is included in the rental fee.
“As stay-at-home restrictions from the past year contributed to a surge within motorcycling, we’re excited to offer more ways for riders to experience what Indian Motorcycle has to offer,” said Indian’s vice president, Aaron Jax.
