As for the PowerPlus 100 engine-which Indian inherited from the old Gilroy firm along with intellectual rights and brand-it's also been refined. Not because it was a bad design, says Bernauer. "The PowerPlus has fundamentally sound architecture, with the Harley EVO basis. It's the execution in the last bikes that was flawed." So the new PowerPlus engine was bored out to 105 cubic inches and received Nikasil-lined cylinders and lighter pistons. The crank assembly was completely replaced, the cam profile updated and new, integrated, state-of-the-art EFI was added. The new engine will be "the heart of the new Indian," according to Bernauer.
