The 2021 Indian Chieftain Limited is a Touring Wonder
The Indian Chieftain Limited is one of four Chieftain models in the 2021 Indian line-up. This American-built touring cruiser shares much of the same DNA as the other Chieftains, with a touring-focused aesthetic, a large front fairing, slammed bags, chrome adornments, and a huge V-twin engine.
The Chieftain Limited uses Indian Motorcycle’s powerful Thunderstroke 116 engine. This is a 1,890 cc liquid-cooled V-twin engine with an impressive power output of 92 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of peak torque. That power is transferred to the wheel via a smooth six-speed transmission and kept under control using three selectable ride modes (Sport, Tour, and Standard), cruise control, rear cylinder deactivation control, and ABS.
Indian’s RideCommand infotainment is arguably one of the most exciting features of this cruiser. It features a touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay, and Navigation integration, and a smartphone and Bluetooth enabled 100 Watt audio system.
Other cool extras include remote-locking hard saddlebags, keyless ignition, a vinyl rogue seat, highway bars, and tire pressure monitoring.
For 2021, the Chieftain Limited is available in Thunder Black Pearl and Radar Blue color options. Both options come with ABS as standard.
The 2021 Indian Chieftain Limited starts at $27,999 USD / $34,499 CAD.
