The 2023 Indian Chief: A Bold Cruiser For The Modern Rider

The 2023 Indian Motorycles lineup has a model and trim for all fans of the brand. The Indian Chief is a true blend of classic American motorcycle design and has an impressive package for riders looking for a powerful, stylish, and customizable cruiser. At the heart of the 2023 Indian Chief lies the Thunderstroke 111 engine, which churns out 108 ft-lbs of torque ensuring plenty of passing power and a thrilling experience. The stripped-down design of the Indian Chief is a definite head-turner. Bobbed fenders, exposed rear shocks, and a steel welded tube frame give the motorcycle an aggressive look.
