New Indian Chief Trike

I think it’s quite beautiful. This Indian Chief Trike is a joint project between Hannigan Trikes and the Indian Motorcycle Company. As Indian states “an awesome example of beauty and beast.”

I am told that it took a great deal of time in development and engineering. And I believe it. Sweet, and for now it can be seen only at the Indian Flagship dealership of Indian Motorcycle Charlotte.

    That trunk set up is pretty cool- bit reminiscent of a Bug, maybe, but still stands out in a crowd- the fenderlines are kinda Delahaye- esque, ya? Gotta be red and loud!

    I am not really a fan of trikes (but give me another ten or so years and I might have no choice) – but this is really nice and for once looks a complete design – not a bike glued to the back of a car. I think I want one!

    Probably the best looking factory trike I’ve seen.

    This is the best looking factory trike I’ve ever seen! I like how they kept thier trademark skirted fendor lines throught the tail section and fendors at the rear. Very well done indeed!!

    I agree with ian, this thing flows so well like a well designed custom even though its a factory bike? Great job to Indian. I have to believe they know what they are doing. Read another article on the chief sounds like Indian has priced their bikes above H-D and Victory to go after the high end crowd who wants a cruiser that speaks for itself.

    THAT IS FRICKEN BEAUTIFUL. I am not a Triker, nor a Trucker, just a Part Time Biker and I would not mind Cruising that around to the Local and the not so Local Establishments. Goes to show you out of 8 Opinions, there is always 1 guy who has NO TASTE!

    Rear view reminds me of an Auburn, one of the most beautiful cars ever built.

    auburn boat tail speedster all the way..flow..lines..grace.. as jj always says “its either shit or it isnt” this is defientely not shit….beautiful..the rear wheels and the rotor and front wheel match..very rare for a trike..classic lines, modern brakes and fuel injection..yes we ares till working with a pushrod antique motor but thats part of the heritage i guess? v-rod powered in that chassis? smoothness 120 hp water cooled and no leaks….that would be progress

    Unfortunately, it appears to be as W-I-I-I-I-D-E as an Auburn boat tail speedster, too.

    I would like to have a custom built Indian Chief trike made for me but dual wheels must be up front and not in the rear like on this bike and up front is for maximum safety sake. Honda was made to get ride of their trikes due to safety yet people continue to try to rediscover the wheel.
