The 2023 Indian Chieftain Limited: A Bold And Powerful Ride

The 2023 Indian Chieftain Limited is a stunning motorcycle that is sure to turn heads and make a statement and exemplifies the top of the line as far as American motorcycles. The Chieftain Limited runs on the air-cooled Thunderstroke 116 V-Twin engine producing 1227 ft-lbs of torque. Available in a bold Black Metallic trim and color option, this motorcycle is designed for those who value performance and style. The aggressive design is accentuated by premium chrome finishes, a sleek fairing, slammed saddlebags, and a gunfighter style seat. With a lowered stance and LED lighting from nose to tail, this motorcycle has a commanding presence on the road.

With a full complement of electronics just like other models in the Indian line, it also features a 7-inch touchscreen powered by RIDE COMMAND, complete with Apple CarPlay® integration, turn-by-turn navigation, Bluetooth® connectivity, live traffic and weather updates, and more. Music enthusiasts will appreciate the high-output speakers in the fairing, delivering 100 watts of crystal-clear audio. The dynamic equalizer automatically adjusts for road, wind, and engine noise, ensuring you hear every note. Other great features include a push-button power windshield, keyless ignition, cruise control, ABS, and tire pressure monitoring!

Despite their size, Indian motorcycles are designed for agile handling and control, the Chieftain Limited boasts a low seat height, ergonomically-designed controls, and a lightweight cast aluminum frame. To further enhance the riding experience, riders can customize their experience with three selectable ride modes—Tour, Standard, and Sport—allowing for a personalized feel on the road. Rear Cylinder Deactivation further enhances rider comfort in slow-moving traffic by automatically shutting off the rear cylinder when the bike is stopped.
