Indian Motorcycle has announced the next evolution of its performance accessory offerings with the Thunder Stroke 116-cubic-inch Stage 3 Big Bore Kit. The Stage 3 Performance Kit is compatible for all Indian Motorcycle heavyweight models powered by the Thunder Stroke 111 engine.
Indian claims riders will experience a 15 percent increase of torque and a 20 percent increase in horsepower when compared to the stock Thunder Stoke 111. Priced in the US at $1,999, plus installation, the 116 Stage 3 Performance Kit will be available for order from dealers in December.
"The bagger landscape is seeing more emphasis on performance, with more riders looking to get on the throttle and carve corners as they would on smaller bikes, and that’s exactly what the Stage 3 Kit is about," said Derek Meyer, Sr. , Indian Motorcycle Accessories Category Manager.
"Indian’s roots are in performance, innovation, and pushing boundaries, and this 116 kit is only one of a variety of new products riders will see from us moving forward, grounded in and driven by Indian’s performance DNA. The 116-Cubic-Inch Stage 3 Big Bore Kit joins Indian’s lineup of performance upgrade kits."
Parts upgrade: Indian’s Stage 1 Performance Air Cleaner and Thunder Stroke High Flow Air Cleaner is said to create more power and improve acceleration via added air flow, while the Stage 1 slip-on exhaust delivers a deep throaty exhaust sound in an all-in-one kit. Additionally, Stage 2 performance cams enhance throttle response and increase power across the rev range.
