The Chieftain Elite is one of the most expensive Indian motorcycles in the entire 2021 Indian line-up. It’s a premium model that’s worthy of the expensive price tag, featuring all of the best aspects of the regular Chieftain models, and a number of bespoke parts to set it apart from the rest. Since it’s a Chieftain at heart, this touring cruiser comes complete with a large front fairing, hard luggage, a slammed stance, and a powerful American-made V-twin engine.
Like the rest of the Chieftain range, the Chieftain Elite is built around the brand’s Thunderstroke 116 V-twin engine. It’s a 1,890cc unit that produces an impressive 92 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of peak torque. The Chieftain Elite keeps that power under control with a bevy of riding aids, including selectable ride modes, cruise control, rear cylinder deactivation technology, and ABS.
Since this is a premium model, it’s not short on top-quality extras. The most notable of these include pinnacle mirrors, bespoke aluminum billet floorboards, a roque seat, 19-inch front wheel, power windshield, and premium 400 watt audio system.
For 2021, the Chieftain Elite is available exclusively in a combination of Thunder Black Vivid Crystal and Wildfire Red Candy.
The 2021 Indian Chieftain Elite starts at $34,999 USD / $42,999 CAD.
