    Another huge advantage to a larger bore is you have room for larger valves. Allowing more air and fuel per cubic inch vs a narrow bore engine. Also, more room to play around with valve angles, plug angles and even multiple valves and plugs per cylinder, if they so choose.

    My problem with Indian is that they’re owned by Polaris. And look aweful. They look like big plastic toys if that makes sense.

    i have watched a lot of your videos, they are great. I'm in central Alberta, so short riding season but it is still awesome. I have ridden all sorts of bikes, Japanese imports to English bobbers. I recently got my first Harley Davidson. For all of the hype, it truly is my most favorite bike. Tons of power, surprisingly agile and has that Harley rumble. My sister has the Indian, she seems happy with it. I would just like to thank you for the time you put into your work. its refreshingly Canadian ;)

    Indians are summoned. So many Indians will be confused why this video has nothing to do with the country India. I get it after seeing the view count that how many Indians have visited the video.


    The heck is a “Chode”?

    Maybe Harley should just install faux rod covers and fins. A lot of muscle cars in the late sixties and seventies had fake hood scoops etc. No one cared that they had no function, it was all about the look.

    Your coordination between the footage and the narration is brilliant in this one. As usual, your explanations are sound, and substantial. Thank you.

    before i knew anything about bikes i never really preferred Harley, but now that i see this i wonder why anyone buys a Harley.

    It not about all that excess power, it’s about the ride , the style, and the legacy of the brand. Harley Davidson as of 2017 and again in 2021 with their new revolution max engine with its injection lubrication system of all moving parts, full liquid cooling, full counter balancing, less moving parts like a huge primary chain rotating, rocker arms, bottom end cams, light bulbs, and a hot air cooled engine have help Harley Davidson back until their new revolution max engine that has seemed to design all the problematic issues out but only did it when forced by the competition.

    It’s clearly not about speed, it’s about being a badass. Harley does just that.

  • MyLonewolf25

    Why? Because they don’t rely on a fan base of cosplay dads and have to be competitive

    Why are theirbikes still massively pigfat though? A sporty motorcycle should weigh around 450, not 500+ lbs

    Harley riders aren't motorcycle enthusiasts. They're Harley enthusiasts. If they truly loved motorcycles, they wouldn't buy antiquated, unreliable, pieces of junk when vastly superior products are out there.

    Somebody once said it best, if you get off your motorcycle and you don’t turn back and look at it when walking away you’ve bought the wrong bike….. seriously though, I could walk away from Indian without ever looking back maybe that’s the reason why I drive by the dealership And never walk in.

  • Ahab

    Been thinking of grabbing an Indian Scout Bobber as my next bike, and then FIbill goes and does that mind-reading thing to me and this video pops up. I knew I wanted one before, but now I really want one.

    Wow, you have no idea what you're talking about. My sportster engine (stock Buell, 2000 model) dynos at 99 horsepower with 93 ft. lbs. of torque. But okay, just go ahead and claim 56.

    Does the Indian have a single pin crankshaft? I always thought that was a part in the lack of performance. But it gave them the vibration and sound that honda was sued for after cutting the power on one of there bikes to make it sound and vibrate like the Harleys did. I haven't kept up on things so I am not sure how Indian motors are built.

    not a single mention that a Harley 1200 sportster puts out as much torque at the Indian scout, and as said by yourself the Indians gearing is no good. So work it out, considering 90% of these riders are just out cruising and not racing, what would you rather ride? Also never seen an engine with as horrible casings on it as the Indians.

    Indian has a real problem with their corporate office. They do not honor their factory warranty. Their dealership maintenance shops are not really qualified to fix issues with their bikes. Buyer beware when buying Indian motorcycles.

    People buy Harleys because they are dumb. It's the same reason they buy oversized, difficult to drive and inconvenient big pick up trucks to drive to their office jobs and the occasional grocery haul. Simple as that.

    unfortunately combustion has ideally completed before the piston even leaves TDC. hence why there is a thing called ignition advance. it isnt COMBUSTION pushing the piston down. a flame doesnt push anything. it is the HEAT liberated via combustion that causes air to EXPAND and increase cylinder PRESSURE.

    Ride whatever you want. Be fast or whatever you want. But speed limits are everywhere anyway... For me when I sit on my Harley the vibration, the sound and the feeling of easy riding makes me smile every time. I do not want to go fast even if I can. It is too dangerous. Harley puts smile on my face and takes me to many places with it and that is enough for me. If I want to ride fast or go off road I would surely choose other bike. I really respect all bikes and bikers. Even enjoy scooters. But ultimately as one and only bike Harley is for me. Indian bikes are beautiful too in cruser category. Enjoy your rides mates

    Try to find parts for your Indian / Polaris , Good luck with dealer support. Where I live the nearest Indian dealer is 4 hours away. No parts / aftermarket parts on line. I will keep my 2015 Harley with 35,000 miles on it , might not be as Fast as a new Indian , but , there is a Harley dealership in every town if you need one
