After the launch of the Challenger, it was predictable that Indian would use the mechanical base for something (even) more adapted to long trips. The answer came with the name Pursuit, but despite its “big” dimensions, the American brand wanted to show that the model doesn’t get in the way of the winding roads of the Alps, so we met in Chamonix!
