In 1901 Indian produced its first motorcycle in Springfield Massachusetts and so began the iconic brand later introducing names like “Chief”, Chieftain” and “Scout” into motorcycling history.
In the early years Indian had much success in competitions such as the Isle of Man TT races and also proved reliable in endurance events and was used by the military of various countries during wartime conflicts.
Indian as a company went through various changes throughout its history. Today (since 2011)the company is owned by Polaris Industries with dealers throughout the world and those legendary names like “Chief”, Chieftain” and “Scout” appear in the current production line-up. It can come as no surprise that these modern Indians retain an image that reflects the past with pure style and a presence on the road that any other motorcycle has difficulty in coming close to. However all this style now comes with modern technology, comfort, performance and handling that excels in every aspect and the confidence of a 5 year factory warranty.
Also owned by Polaris Industries is the VICTORY brand of motorcycles another marque that produces modern motorcycles for touring, cruising and with some models looking outright
‘custom’. This brand has been in production since 1998 and has gained a reputation for reliability with style.
Both Indian and Victory motorcycles can be seen at the official concessionaire, ‘Intruder’ of Alicante who hold the dealer of the year award from Polaris Industries. Also at Intruder’s you can find a full range of Royal Enfield production motorcycles another legendary name this time from English beginnings.
A trip to Intruder’s is worthwhile for any motorcycle enthusiast, apart from the exceptional new machines there is a showroom full of many quality pre-owned motorcycles including Harley-Davidson, Triumph, Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki and a large selection of accessories, clothing and gifts. Intruder’s also offer a fully equipped workshop facilities with factory trained mechanics qualified in all aspects of motorcycle service including electrics, sheet metal, painting, transformations, restorations and homologations and of course sound advice on any problem. Whilst visiting you can also eat and drink at the snack bar or even have your bike treated to a thorough clean in the new bike wash facility.
Intruder’s is a different kind of dealership. The staff, whilst very professional, are more akin to old friends, not pressurising but happy to answer any questions and make your biking experience great. They call it a “Motorbike Resort” where you will also find regular Rastros, Concerts, Parties and even facilities to hold your own events on request. See “Indian Motorcycle of Alicante” on Facebook.
