Most of the interest in the Indian naturally centres on the new 1,234 c.c. model, known as the Super Chief. So large an engine reminds one of the earlier efforts to obtain high speed, but this, the latest type, differs so greatly from its predecessors that a comparison is almost impossible. Not only is the engine neater, but the whole machine, though on lines built for speed, is a really workmanlike and practical job. The influence of American thought is apparent throughout, as, for example, in the method adopted to enclose the valves and valve springs, so protecting them from dust or mud. Besides the Super Chief which is shown with a sidecar, there is the ordinary Chief of 998 c.c, which is similar to the one shown last year. A third model, the 596 c.c. Scout, is also on the stand, but is in general design the same as the other two. All the machines are finished in the familiar Indian bright red, and the electrical accessories are carried out with an admirable thoroughness.
