Indian Motorcycle Charlotte was founded in 2008. The dealership was created as the "flagship" facility with unique architecture and stylish design.

At the grand opening, there were 6,000 in attendance celebrating the renaissance of the legendary brand. For five years, the dealership was recognized as a Top 100 Powersports Dealer, and won awards for “Best Exterior Design” and “Best In‐Store Display”.

The two are teaming up in attempt to make Indian Motorcycle Charlotte the gold standard for dealerships offering custom and high performance Indian motorcycles.
“We’re excited to take ownership of one of the most iconic and best Indian Motorcycle dealerships in the country, and we feel it’s a perfect match of our shared skills,” Greer said. Sutherland and Greer have retained all the dealership’s employees, including Mark Moses, the founder of the business. “Mark is highly respected for his Indian Motorcycle expertise, and we’re excited that he will stat to help us optimize the dealership’s tremendous potential,” Greer added.
