Design Inspiration

Design Inspiration

To design this fairing, our team looked for inspiration outside of the motorcycle industry. We landed on the sleek and powerful streamliner locomotives of the 1950s. With these classically-styled machines as our guide, a new icon for Indian Motorcycle® was born - a streamlined front fairing with a chrome headlight nacelle that accentuates the style.
