  • Pathfinder LED Lights: Powerful LED head and driving lights illuminate the road for safe riding, day or night.

  • A Commanding Presence: This bike was born to turn heads with its bold, custom-inspired finishes.
  • Remote-Locking Hard Saddlebags: Your cargo is protected inside spacious, weatherproof saddlebags. You can lock/unlock them via a console-mounted button or with the bike's key fob.
  • 19" Front Wheel: An open fender, inspired by the Indian fenders of the 1920s and 1930s, showcases a 10-spoke, contrast-cut wheel that completes the custom look.
