INDIAN BRINGS OUT MANY
NEW 1915 IMPROVEMENTS
Popular Motorcycle Has Surpassed All
Previous Yean in Number of Truly
Basic Advances In Construction and
The Indian motorcycle for 1915 has
surpassed all its previous years in the
number of truly basic advances in con
struction and design. Nine of these
innovations stand head and shoulders
above the general line of progress,
while twenty other improvements —im-
portant changes and refinements —
unite to carry the banner of Indian
superiority still further up the peak of
All the engineering perfections
which the motorcycle world has ac
credited to the Indian have been re
tained, and to these has been added a
characteristic group of sound, new me
chanical developments, such as is al
ways expected of Indian skill and in
Indian leadership lias never had
greater exemplification than in its 1915
models: never achieved so surely and
so fully; never, for all its remarkable
past, mere deeply justified its position
as the premier machine of its kind.
For some time there has been a de
sire among riders for a light-weight
machine developing 10-horsepower. To
meet this demand the manufacturers of
the Indian have developed a light
weight, twin-cylinder model of 10-
horsepower, which is 75 pounds lighter
than the regular twin. It is expected
that this machine will prove unusually
attractive to those who want a light
motorcycle for city use, or who dislike
the weight of the high-powered twin.
One of the main features of this
model is the motor construction. All
the bearing and cam mechanism are
identically the same size as are used
in the larger twin. A specially designed
roller-bearing clutch is used that amply
takes care of the power and weight of
the machine plus the strains and usage.
The increasing use of the motor
cycle for passenger side car and com
mercial work has led to the new de
parture in motorcycle practice—the
three-speed gear. This permits of a
wide variation of speed reductions ac
cording to the weight of the load
carried or the nature of the grades and
road surfaces encountered. The Indian
three-speed gear mechanism has ratios
of 10 to 1, 6 to I, and 4»1, thus
permitting adaptation to practically
any riding conditions. This device can
be attached to all models except D-l.
For the Big Twin Models, which arc
rated at 15 horsepower, there has been
designed a new heavy-duty clutch. This
is of the multiple-disc type and is fitted
on the countershaft in the usual In
dian manner. It is of extra heavy

In the late afternoon the day's milk
I supply is ready for city delivery, and
hack goes the truck to Montreal with
its load of milk cans.
All in all, the Model J is in use on an
average of 20 hours a day by Mr.
Dupuy and his men, and needless to say
its work is found vastly more efficient

fashioned method of team hauling.

used, intense* heat or cold have no ef

models, which will be much appreci

into engagement with the pinion on
the clutch and turns the motor throe

being engaged to obtain positive and

to select, by elminination, those which
are best suited for the strains they will
