I have been reading since last year about this time when the new Chief was coming out that Indian is going with variable valve timing on their 111/116 in order to meet tougher CAFE standards. I do not think they will ditch these engines soon, but what do I know?Right there....Definitely appears that PI is pushing their newest models with more choices across a single offering.
@LEVON106 I think the TS (both 111 and 116) are toast in their current form. If those engines get updated (water cooled heads?) to meet CAFE standards, I can see the Springfield staying and the Chief remaining in its current form.
I always thought that it was expensive proposition for PI to continue to offer three different styled faring on their bikes. One has go....and I believe it is the Roadmaster.
