Over the years, a few English motorcycles have been sold as Indians. And from 2006-’11, the Indian Motorcycle Company was owned by a London-based private equity firm called Stellican Limited.
Stellican bought the brand and assets from the Gilroy company and produced a small number of motorcycles out of a new home in Kings Mountain, NC.
Although some of the transactions were spurious (or do I mean ‘scurrilous’? Maybe both...) Stellican was approximately the 18th company to own the Indian trademark. The company had previously resurrected another iconic American brand, Chris-Craft.
Stellican relaunched Indian in 2009, but sold less than a thousand bikes.
