Sparks fly! Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycle go to war. Sort of.


Harley-Davidson has (unofficially) bitten back at Indian Motorcycle – following the resurgent brand’s recent marketing campaign, which pits its new Challenger against H-D’s Road Glide.

Sparks fly! Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycles go to war. Sort of.

To show off the Challenger’s 122hp V-twin engine, Indian’s filmed it going up against Harley-Davidson’s Road Glide in a drag race and a taco truck tow-off. And it’s even offering back-to-back rides of both bikes at its dealers.

It’s a bold move from Polaris-owned Indian, and we can’t imagine Harley bosses are particularly pleased with the campaign – which might explain H-D’s ‘unofficial’ advert which is currently doing the rounds on social media.  Apparently, the advert hasn’t been officially sanctioned by the Milwaukee factory – but either way, we reckon it’s a pretty hilarious comeback. “Honestly now, did you spend your youth dreaming about someday owning a Polaris?”

There’s been no rebuttal from Indian just yet – but we can’t see Harley-Davidson’s words going without a response for long. Sit tight. This could get interesting.
