2022 Indian Chieftain Limited: Chrome or Nothing

2022 Indian Chieftain Limited

2022 Indian Chieftain: An All-American Bagger

The 2022 Indian Chieftain Limited sits alongside the Chieftain, Chieftain Black Horse, and Chieftain Elite in the 2022 Indian Motorcycle portfolio. It shares most of its hardware and specifications with the Indian Chieftain Dark Horse, with the key differentiating factor being the use of chrome finishing in place of the Dark Horse’s blacked-out look.

Like the Chieftain Dark Horse, the Chieftain Limited is powered by the company’s Thunderstroke 116 engine that displaces 1,890 cc. Indian Motorcycles has not revealed an official horsepower figure for the engine, but it has mentioned that peak torque is 126 ft-lb of torque.

Off the dealership floor, the Chieftain Limited comes with a 7-inch infotainment system powered by the Ride Command software, three ride modes, cruise control, rear cylinder deactivation, a 100-watt audio system, keyless ignition, and a 12V charging port. It also gets Smart Lean Technology, Apple CarPlay integration, and a tire-pressure monitoring system.

The American manufacturer also offers various accessories you can equip the motorcycle with, from added storage to auxiliary lights and different seat options.

The 2022 Indian Chieftain Limited is available in three color schemes — Black Metalic, Silver Quartz Metallic, and Deepwater Metallic.

The 2022 Indian Chieftain Limited starts at $27,999 USD / $34,999 CAD
