Indian’s brilliant app
At the New York Motorcycle show, Indian showed us their new phone app, called Indian Rides. It can overlay weather patterns and the restaurants on a map, and—importantly—display nearby gas stations.
There is an Easter Egg in the app too–next to the Disclaimer and About tabs is an “Engine Sound” tab. The screen shows the right handlebar of the next generation Indian, and twisting the phone unleashes a roar from the next generation of Indian Motorcycles.
It’s a creative idea, and it’s nice to imagine firing one of those beasts down the road.
