The 2021 Indian Vintage
The legendary Indian Chief Vintage returns for 2021. This time, Indian Motorcycles has decided to drop the “Chief” part of the name and now calls it the Indian Vintage for the 2021 line-up, but it’s very much the same American-made icon that we all know and love. This is a serious cruiser aimed at riders who enjoy mile-munching tours, and authentic American motorcycling heritage.
For 2021, the Indian Vintage features a 1,811cc Thunderstroke 111 V-twin engine. In terms of power, the Vintage boasts 79 horsepower and 119 lb-ft of torque, delivered to the rear wheel via a smooth six speed transmission. All of that power is controlled by the Vintage’s selectable ride modes, cruise control, and ABS as standard.
The Vintage boasts a timeless aesthetic, complete with wire-spoke wheels, genuine leather seats, highway bars, a unique Indian Headdress fender ornament, and a premium tank badge. Other neat features include genuine LED lights, leather saddlebags, and a quick-release Lexan wind shield.
For 2021, the Vintage is available in Crimson Metallic or a combination of Deep Water and Dirt Track Tan.
The 2021 Indian Vintage starts at $20,499 USD / $24,499 CAD.
