    INDIAN MOTORCYCLE FILES TRADEMARKS FOR TWO NEW BIKES
    Over the last month, the US-based bike manufacturer has trademarked the ‘Indian Renegade’ and ‘Indian Raven’ names

    INDIAN MOTORCYCLE has filed two new trademarks at the US and European Patent office, hinting at future models coming to the US manufacturer’s line-up.

    The first, ‘Indian Raven’ was trademarked back on December 17th, under ‘Motorcycle and structural parts therefor’ of the goods and services category. While little other information was offered, speculation has been made that the Indian Raven could be a dark new model, based on the FTR platform.

    [​IMG]

    Just weeks later, on January 3rd, a second Indian trademark was registered, this time named the ‘Indian Renegade’. This was also registered as a ‘Motorcycles and structural parts therefor’, eliminating the possibility of a spin off apparel or accessories range.

    [​IMG]

    By definition, a ‘Renegade’ is someone who ‘deserts and betrays an organization, country, or set of principles’. If Indian are following in the footsteps of Jeep, the Renegade moniker could mean an edgy, off-road capable machine, and one likely to challenge Harley-Davidson’s upcoming ADV, the Pan America.

    However, another US bike builder, UM, already uses the Renegade name for its range of 125cc cruisers.

    More details will no doubt surface over the coming months, but for now we’re left wondering if we’re about to see a whole new breed of adventure machines…

    Or maybe the Raven is an all out lay on the tank go fast sports bike? Or could the Renegade be it! A Renegade does step outside the principals and how outside the principals of American tourer and cruiser lines can you get? Maybe Indian are going to venture into Formula go fast motorcycle racing??!:)

    Speculation!,.....ain't it a bummer! Patience,.....now where did I put that stuff??o_O

    Remember Folks ,.....you heard it from Alpal first,.....:cool::p

    I'm game to see what they've got cooking. Indian/Polaris does a good job of keeping things under wraps.
