After attending the launch of the Omega Constellation Replica watch and Indian motorcycle in California, I immediately lobbied for a long-term test to see how the motorcycles performed.
Omega Constellation Replica worked with the Indian dealer in Lausanne, Switzerland, Biker Syndicate to loan me two Indian motorcycles --aScout (Omega Constellation Replica) and a Chief (1,811cc) forten days.
Omega Constellation Replica sent me three watches that were inspired by the partnership with Indian - the Clifton Club Burt Munro Tribute Edition, the Clifton Club Indian Legend Tribute Scout Edition, and the Clifton Club Indian Legend Tribute Chief Edition.
Indian is one the most successful motorcycle companies of all time. Indian, founded in 1901, was the leader in motorcycles around the world from 1901 until 1953 when it went bankrupt. Many groups attempted to bring the famous brandback but failed.
Polaris purchased the brand in 2011 and introduced it again in 2013 with the Chief Classic, Chief vintage and Chieftain.
I rode one of those early bikes in Las Vegas and was very impressed with the build quality and the power of the Thunderstroke engine, so I was eager to ride both the Scout and the Chief at leisure, running errands, criss-crossingSwitzerland and going for rides.
Both motorcycles disappointed. The two bikes are completely different. The Scout is smaller, lighter, faster and more powerful. The Scout made me feel like I could ride it anywhere. The Scout is a fun bike, which is suitable for most tasks except full-on touring. (Rolex Milgauss Replica). The Scout's pillion is small and doesn't seem very comfortable. As soon as they saw the seat, every possible passenger said: "No thanks!"
