Indian Motorcycles Closes Down

Indian Motorcycles, Gilroy, California, dismissed all the workers and closed its doors today. After 5 years trying to get the Indian marque re-established, the venture has failed.
I know this isn't car related, but it is sad too see another motor, cease production.
Ride In Peace Indian.

I could see that this was going to happen - their break even point was around 8300 units per annum , a figure they never came close to, and to make matters worse they had diabolical reliability problems with the units that they had built . The latest model had an inhouse designed engine (as opposed to an S&S engine) and R&D for this cost them megga $$$ .
