If you have purchased an Indian and have noticed this problem you can seek re-treatment and for new Indian customers you have nothing to worry about. Indian Motorcycles have announced that all Aussie Customers can take their bike back to the place of purchase for a free re-treatment which will bring the seat and or luggage back to its original look.
The old waxed leather treatment simply could not handle the Australian UV. All the current models (2014) have a polyurethane treatment that is 40 times more UV resistant that the previous waxed treatment.
You can have your Indian Serviced or have a re-treatment applied at our Rising Sun Dealership in Townsville. While you’re there check out our impressive complex and you can even have a bite to eat in our air-conditioned Café serving light meals and coffee all day.
