The All-New 2021 Indian Chieftain

The Indian Chieftain is the jewel in the crown of the 2021 Indian motorcycle line-up. It’s big, powerful, and the perfect fit for anyone wanting a truly authentic American motorcycle experience. It’s got the full-fairings, the bags, and the muscle, that these iconic V-twin cruisers are famous for.

There are two engine options for the 2021 Chieftain: 1,811 cc (111 cu in) and 1,890 cc (116 cu in). Both offer enormous power, with the torque output starting from 119 lb-ft. That power is delivered through a silky smooth 6-speed transmission for comfortable long-distance riding.

Comfortable mile-munching is easy on the Chieftain since it comes equipped with a comprehensive RideCommand infotainment system, cruise control, ABS, and soft rogue seat as standard.

For 2021, the Indian Chieftain is available with different color schemes to match the engine options. The smaller 1,811 cc model is available in Thunder Black, while the larger 1,890 cc model is available exclusively in Titanium Smoke.

The 2021 Indian Chieftain starts at $21,999 USD / $26,999 CAD.
