NEW LOOK SAME SOUL.
The 2018 Indian® Chieftain™ is in touch with its past, but far ahead of its time. It’s the first Indian Motorcycle® ever with a hard fairing, hard saddlebags and unprecedented new comfort and convenience features. It’s like no Indian Motorcycle® ever seen before, yet its style makes clear it has the DNA of a legendary Indian Motorcycle®.
2018 colour: Steel Gray
Thunder Stroke 111
The Thunder Stroke™ 111 engine delivers an incredible 150 Nm of torque and features styling that pays tribute to legendary Indian Motorcycle® engines of the past.
Spacious hard saddlebags are mounted on quick-release anchors.
Raise and lower the power-adjustable windscreen with the push of a button to customize airflow and protection.
The fairing houses an audio system that delivers clean, quality sound from dual high-output speakers. The aerodynamic fairing blocks wind to allow you to enjoy your highway playlist without interference.
LED driving lights provide both style
and protection down any road you
choose to take.
Enjoy convenient and secure keyless starting. With the Indian® Chieftain™ key fob in your pocket, climb on the bike, push a button and ride. If you misplace the fob, use the individual security code that you pre-programmed into the ignition.
True Dual Exhaust
The engine produces a rich exhaust note from the true dual exhaust. The exhaust was acoustically engineered to eliminate high-pitched sounds, so what you really hear is Indian Motorcycle® thunder.
Indian Motorcycle® Badging: One of the classic elements of an Indian Motorcycle® is the vintage badging. Ever since the Indian® script logo was first created in 1910, this feature has made the Indian Motorcycle® badging a hallmark of this historic brand.
The first Indian Motorcycle of its kind, the Indian Chieftain maintains the legendary Indian Chief styling, while taking this progressive machine to new heights with advanced features and premium comfort.
