The Indian Chief returns to the Indian Motorcycles line-up for 2021, but as a 2022 model. Its return is a celebration of the Chief’s 100th anniversary since it first tolled onto the scene in 1921. Today’s all-new Chief builds on top of that legacy but fuses it with modern design language. The new Chief has a wheel in each century and connects the brands past, present, and future. It’s also the base model for a number of new exciting Chief models in the 2021 Indian line-up.
The base Chief is a real American motorcycle that’s built around Indian’s successful 1,811cc Thunderstroke 111 engine, which produces 108 lb-ft of peak torque and around 74 horsepower. But while the engine is an exciting feature, the new Chief offers more than a burly V-twin.
It also features three ride modes (Tour, Sport, and Standard), cruise control, optional ABS, full LED lighting, keyless ignition, Pirelli Night Dragon tires, bold styling, and no end of customization possibilities thanks to Indian’s exhaustive accessory options.
The Chief is available in Black Metallic or White Smoke for the non-ABS model. However, the ABS-enabled version is available in Black Metallic, White Smoke, or Ruby Smoke.
The 2022 Indian Chief starts from $14,999 USD / $16,999 CAD.
