RIDE COMMAND* For 2020, Indian Motorcycle introduces Ride Command – a completely redesigned version of its industry-leading infotainment system. Still measuring seven inches, with glove-touch technology, Ride Command features a new quad-core processor to provide the fastest infotainment experience available. New features include traffic and weather overlays, so riders can plan their ride to avoid traffic and poor weather conditions. Additionally, Ride Command features predictive destination search capabilities and improved customizable ride screens. Indian Motorcycle’s Ride Command is the industry’s largest, fastest and most-customizable infotainment system on two wheels.
SELECTABLE RIDE MODES With all Thunder Stroke models, riders can choose between three Ride Modes on the fly – Tour, Standard or Sport – for a ride experience that’s customized to their riding style. The throttle map for each Ride Mode has been designed with a specific application in mind, resulting in one motorcycle with three distinct personalities. Tour mode features a smooth throttle response for relaxed cruising. Standard mode features a crisp throttle response and well-balanced power delivery for responsive passing power and predictable, slow-speed handling. Sport mode features an instant throttle response and aggressive power delivery for head-snapping acceleration.
REAR CYLINDER DEACTIVATION To increase rider comfort, all Thunder Stroke 111 and Thunder Stroke 116 models feature a Rear Cylinder Deactivation. When the engine reaches operating temperature and the ambient temperature exceeds 15˚ C the rear cylinder will automatically deactivate when the bike is at a standstill, resulting in less engine heat for improved comfort in slow-moving or stopped traffic. The rear cylinder instantly reactivates when throttle is applied for a seamless transition to full power.
KEYLESS IGNITION Keyless starting is secure and convenient. With an Indian Motorcycle key fob, riders just need to throw a leg over the bike, push a button and take off. If the fob is misplaced, riders can use their customizable security code to start it up.
ADDITIONAL STANDARD FEATURES All Thunder Stroke 111 and Thunder Stroke 116 models are also equipped with automotive quality throttle-by-wire cruise control and a reliable antilock braking system (ABS).
NEW ACCESSORIES For riders looking to add or customize their passenger accommodations, Indian Motorcycle now offers a new, more modern styled Passenger Backrest Pad that matches the styling of its Rogue Seat. Also new for 2020 are the Headdress Passenger Floorboard Pads for added cushion to combat road vibration. The passenger floorboard pads match the current Headdress Rider Floorboard Pads.
HANDLEBARS New for 2020, Indian Motorcycle will offer a 12 In. Ape Hanger Handlebar Kit for all Chief and Indian Springfield models, the same bars that now come stock on the 2020 Indian Springfield Dark Horse. Indian Motorcycle Mid Rise Handlebar Kit continues to be a top seller for riders who are looking for extra space and more aggressive styling for their Chieftain or Roadmaster.
